I really enjoyed HAWX. It was the best excuse since Freespace 2 and maybe one of the Rogue Squadron sequels to jump into something large and pointy and fly and shoot at shit. The story was enough to drive the thing at least, however unplausible one might consider it. Perhaps this positive review from the Yahtz will drive more people to pick up this game, like they did Painkiller, cos Gaud knows it deserves some bloody praise.
I don't know if Yahtzee knew it or not, but he just refferenced Gears of War at the end. Because anyone who knows a damn about the Locust knows that they aren't a bunch of aliens, they are disgruntled insect people from the core of the Earth. That's Epic's definition of them anyways, and considering they made the Locust I am inclined to agree with them.
I'm not entirely sold on H.A.W.X. being worth my time. The only flight combat game I have any experience with is MIG-29 Fighter Pilot back on the Sega Genesis (and in retrospect I have no clue how I came about getting it or why it was cool to me to begin with) aand I was never any good at it. Flight sims aren't my thing, so I'm gonna remain skeptical about this one.
This review reminds me of the medal of honour one
The hilariously affronted americans (no offence to americans who actually have a sense of humour)on that thread should have known they couldn't censor Yahtzee! :
