LONG BLOG

So I have just finished H.A.W.X. for the PC

   0
So we can argue, on one side we have a Tom Clancy kind of story that is messed up... I mean, PMC (private military contractor), that goes on a full scale war on the United States? A PMC is a company, how does the "go invade a country for free" do for business??
But still on the other side the easy shooting and tone of the missions is very fun, and I found myself looking forward to what was next, and if you let aside the ridiculous story then the game is fairly enjoyable. Is just that the way the story is presented to you is not as bad as the sotry itself. Sometimes is not the content of the box, just the box... you guys following me? Nah, dont worry, neither Im I.


I want one of those, the traffic would not be a problem.

Back to the campaign is a Tom Clancy game, is not short but not a very long, around 12 hours or less if you dont suck like me. The thing is that it has a lot of turns in a single mision and is well executed in those twists, you can complain of the stupid story, but besides that is fairly good and I could play it without any stabillity issues (stable, fast loading times).
Is fairly difficult, at least I finded it complicated in the normal mode. I had to go back and select maybe another plane because I was failing too much on some specific missions. On the other side the AI throw at you a lot of ground and air units at the same time (4:1), so if you have to protect something you will do fine in most of the cases, but if you have to give assistance to multiple units it can get frustrating.

Overall I liked the game more than I thought I would. Is cheesy? Yeah a little. I never cared a lot about my wingmans since they were annoying on the radio and I didnt knew what they were doing most of the time (send them an order and they wouldnt engage effectively or protect you well). But I continue playing because I wanted to see what was next, my next airplane, to fly an F-117 on a bomb mission and a f22 on an air dominance one. It was fun. Just dont expect a flight simulator.

I can see a mission add on in the future on the way of DLC, it should add another campaign, they have a great engine to build more missions, pack them in a box and call it H.A.W.X.X. 2 revenge of the X.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
