H.A.W.X Movie & Preorders

A new movie is available from Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, showing off more of the upcoming aerial combat game in a clip that focuses on the game's use of GeoEye, and don't fool yourself girl, it's looking at you. The clip is available on AtomicGamer and Gamer's Hell. Also, Ubisoft sends word that preordering the game at GameStop will earn you an exclusive in-game FB-22 fighter plane, while Steam is offering a free copy of Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII if you pre-purchase the game from them for digital distribution.

Come on Steam! Blazing Angels is an incredible POS. You should be giving HAWX for 1/2 price if you take Blazing Angels as well.
Give me the extra planes please not UBI's old junk!

I guess today's gamer is not capable of working a flight "simulation" so perhaps they are not allowing the option.

Considering the genre died out years ago, I'd say us vaunted, elite, intelligent long-time PC gamers weren't capable of working a flight "simulation" since long before anyone had ever started yammering about the dumbing-down/consolization of games.

Or maybe the vast majority of us just never cared, considering that flying a plane in reality, or playing a game where you fly a plane realistically, is boring.

Actually Lock-On and it's Flaming Cliffs add-on have the Su-25. FC is actually dedicated to it. Definitely the flight-sim to beat at the moment, especially with it's Black Shark expansion just coming out. While I like games like H.A.W.X, like Air Combat, you just don't get the same control as you do in a real sim...

yeah no one seems to understand why the game only lets you do sharp brake turns from the external view. It's just... baffling.

I will probably get this when the price drops. The Su-25 Frogfoot and X-29 are in the game. Haven't seen those since EA's Fighters Anthology

it kept putting me in some funky external view which was cool, but pretty useless to dogfight in..

That was the exact point I deleted the demo...

I thought the demo was alright, except when I wanted to turn OFF the computer aided flight and have full maneuverability it kept putting me in some funky external view which was cool, but pretty useless to dogfight in..theres no way to have an internal view and full flight control? Thats a deal killer for me.
