    ok, wondering if anyone else has or is getting hawx.

    just bought it and dling right now.

    the file is like 6.75 GB. wow. that's HD porno there.. lol...

    based on the demo of hawx, it seems fun, strategy, knowledge of airspace is key. knowing where the edge of the plane is and how not to stall the plane.

    Played the demo. Seems really fun for the pilot type but still just a lot of flying in circles till you get a lock. Stalling is the best part while someone is right on your ass lol.

    Pretty sure flying in circles is the main strategy of every flight sim... At least that's the case when bad players are involved.

    It would probably be a lot more fun if I was allowed to use my mouse or had a joystick. Still doesn't seem worth actually buying unless you are a flyer.

    I raved about this game for years,I played the demo,I used a PS3 usb joypad,and from what I've seen broadcasted in Xfire,it's a good game. But my hardware comes first . my old CPU would run that game in high res with no slow down,this rig would eat it up,and as a pilot that flies in circles has a higher rate of getting shot down.easy target,playing bf2 as a pilot in planes and mmmm helicopters,playing HAWX has the 1 element,bf2 had it all. so will ARMA2. and yes I still compare all fps and military games to bf2,and still none of them come close to the content in bf2.the maps were big!!!! fps AND INFANTRY ONLY SETTINGS,air maps and city maps.OK now I'm just babbling. After my hardware updates are complete,ARMA2 will be released,maybe I'll get HAWX 2?
    GTA IV measures up to bf2 on a gangster level, GTA IV content is thru the roof,this is the only game I've actually played in single player,and enjoyed,hard missions cost alot of $$$.multi player is good,but still needs some patches,and security updates for hacks n cheats,the super car race mode with guns ,or without are alot of fun 32 people going to first corner,I fall back and wait for the pile ups,and take top 3. turf wars and mafia work,team death match,cops n crooks, this game is for high end CPUs ,I found that out the hard way,as you all know. but now the money has been spent and my 750 psu and 280gtx hitting my table on the 15th,my next gen rig,will be operating @ 95% the last 5% is for new ultimate 64 OS and Hard drive 1TB.

    HAWX is a good game,I'm just gonna wait,between COD4 and GTA IV ,and bf2 sometimes,I don't have enough time,to play them all. One would have to go, and be replaced with ARMA2!!!!!!!!!! 170 vehicles 78 weapons,150 square mile map,24 hrs rotation,day vs night. this will be repeated again before the release.I'm a broken record.

    spec/4 ARMA2!
