Coop images of HAWX

Coop images of HAWX

Ubisoft released these images of Tom Clancy's HAWX showing the coop mode of the game in action. I can't say I see much difference with the regular mode.

I love flight games, more specifically the AC series but I am not really convinced by this, the zoomed out view mode just seems strange and the fact that it allows your plane to be more maneuverable is really grating. Still, there are far too few games in this genre (especially for PS3) so I will probably end up giving it a look.

There is too much information displayed on the screen for me. It is really all over the place. You probably need the information, but a little subtle and stylish would be nice.

I feel the same way.
It is looking nice, handling looks ok (I haven't played it though), the HUD is clean and sharp but the Tom Clancy like story (I think he is boring) and this maneuverability feature which is trimmed only to look cool (like most recent Ubi games tbh) will probalby break it for me.
I foretell that they won't touch AC with this.

But competition is always good. Namco will have to put a bit more effort into AC to stay ahead and maybe cut the crap with their ripp off DLC.

oh god, give it a rest! the camera is different yet, but dont diss it until youve actually played it im so tired of people putting games down before they play them, ubi's a rockstar lately with very solid games, i can only play that graw comes and sees a big boost in graphics like their recent games... i mean HAWX looks spectacular...

Also for those that forget Ubi already confirmed in-cockpit view, its just not how they are designing the game to be played.

I'm by no means dissing it, I am just not convinced so far that it is going to be fun and IGN's recent hands on has not exactly done much to instill confidence. I would love to be pleasantly surprised as I really enjoy the genre and as I said before it is severly under represented so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will work.

That tank in screen 4 looks like s***. I guess that's the price we have to pay for 60 fps.

I’m not putting it down, at least not intentionally. I just have the feeling that it won’t be better than AC for me and I would rate AC5 e.g. a 10/10 so there is few room for errors.

It’s been always like this and it won’t change soon as there are more important things. It’s not important you won’t see such target for long. Most aircrafts aside the player aircraft have such a detail level too because due to distance and speed it won’t matter whether they have infinite details or none at all, you won’t be able to recognize them anyway.
Afaik (haven’t played for some time now) this tank looks better than the ones in AC6.

Gosh darnit if only they'd make a sim with spiffy grfx like these.

Need a demo.

If there is a sim-mode, both in singleplayer and multiplayer, i'll buy it.
If what we saw in the trailers is all there is (physics wise), i'll not even consider it.
I wish game devs would stop being Hollywood and start treating gamers with respect, as intelligent people who can grasp a complex and challenging game, instead of constantly simplifying everything down to "press x to warp to enemy plane and auto-kill".

And this is why i still prefer RTS & city-builder games on the PC. They challenge you, they dont insult your intelligence with tutorials on how to do mouse-clicks.

Of course it does, the focus in the game is AIR combat. Ground units aren't going to look any better then a mehsih RTS model. Beyonf that it looks great.

You can pass on this one Baleur. It's 100% arcade like Ace Combat. If you look for the next Lock On then consider FSX/FS9 + VRS F/A 18 Superbug, as close as it will get to reality in the next year. Link here: http://www.vrsimulations.com/

won’t let the game appeal to me.
In the assistance mode the aids are too much (I don’t know whether you can deactivate these) and in assistance off it is pure style garbage, no accurate control whatsoever just some random maneuvers until they get a lock on…

Simply: Looks boring ..

Yeah I have to agree although I will play the demo anyway when it comes along. I just assumed that the assist mode was purely optional but turning it off actually forces you into the crappy chase camera...I mean what the hell??!

The devs have gotten the whole idea completele arse backwards, you should have to use a freaking cockpit view when you are not using any amateur pilot assistance or at least be able to use that view with the assistance turned off. I don't care if it makes the game harder and more requiring in skill to shoot down enemies but I am afraid the whole game is broken because enemy planes will also be able to "cheat" in the same way so you are basically forced into this mechanic. Plus how the hell are you supposed to score accurately with the vulcan from that zoomed out crap...ah well, rant over.

    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
