Images of HAWX

Ubisoft has announced a partnership with GeoEye, to provide images for Ubi's upcoming air combat game Tom Clancy's HAWX. GeoEye's images are currently being used by the US national Security, and hopefully will this give some great environments in the game. The images inside show Algeria, Rio de Janeiro and Cape Canaveral.

this game looks and sounds more spectacular everytime i hear aobut it... its a definite buy for me ... as long as they keep the sense of speed their, i hate flight games that feel slow.

Seriously are people blind in here? This looks like a copy of Ace Combat 6 which is - if I might add - a year old game. From what I can see when I look at these pics is very bad textures, foggy like someone set the sharpness to ZERO.

I expect more power out of an Ubi Soft-Studio

Just take a look at the planes? My Nintendo DS can produce better than this!
But the drawing distance is nice.

I wish there would be SOME game that is set in Israel, or at least as a part of a middle-east setting. There's plenty of games where Americans fight Arabs, Chinese, Russian, even European forces, but, for some reason there's never reference to Israel.

and about the game, well. it looks very good. I just hope it will not be as arcade-ish as ace combat 6.

BTW: yes, Assassin's creed is set in Palestine, but it's not Israel.

What Foxxy said. Not to mention the fact that from the trailers and demonstrations we've seen, HAWX (ew at that name) is so arcadey, that its just.... It makes me puke :P

When this game can make Ace Combat 6 seem like a SIMULATOR, then something is seriously wrong..
Ace Combat is 100% arcade, but its done right.
This is 100% arcade, with 100% newb-and-8yearolds-friendliness.
Just like hollywood, that = pure shit.

Problem with Ace Combat is it feels slow as hell, always has. This game has a better sense of speed from the videos.

Graphics look great. It is a bit soft, but that style adds a bit of photo-realism vs aliased, sharp models.

    MrWhite Games like Project Gotham 4, Halo 3, and Gears over Live are some of the most memorable things I've ever experienced in gaming. A gaming system just about its games. Great. What happened? (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite The thing that made the 360 amazing was Xbox Live. MS have since done a good job of fucking that up too. Party chat killed it for me. (1 Hour ago)
