I am a huge fan of airplane combat simulators. I loved Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation
. I was really excited for Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X
. I thought a genre that was really starving for high quality games was finally getting another game I could dig into. I tried the demo and was severely disappointed with it. So much so, I canceled a pre-order for it. That little child on the inside died for me.
Ubisoft obviously has seen something in the previous installment, and the game designers and producers claimed more could be done, that they were granted a second game. We all know that Ubisoft would never
put out a game if they didn't believe it was of the highest quality. Right? Right?
I am going to believe that for a moment. I really want to get excited for this game. I will hold judgment until I can try a demo of the next game, but I really have some morsel of hope for this game. The little child on the inside is on lifesupport. He wants--no--he needs
another solid air combat simulator. Ubisoft, do not be the killer of children. Ubisoft, be the savior of little children inside of us all. Make H.A.W.X. excellent.
To give us a little hope, we have a debut trailer.
I've included some screenshots to generate some of that Hope and Change spirit.
Can't do go wrong with an explosion, right? Michael Bay made a career of it.
