There were a lot of things that I liked about the first Tom Clancy's HAWX game, and all together I feel that this series is certainly a worthy adversary to Namco's longer-running "Ace Combat" series, and really perhaps in many ways superior to it...As far as the visuals go, there's probably not much of a comparable difference between the first game in the series and this entry, with maybe the exception of the ground terrain and maps (created again using GeoEye satellite imagery), looking perhaps a little bit better than I remember it looking in the first game. Sound design is mostly pretty solid, as far as both the sound effects as well as the voice-overs are concerned. I feel though that the explosions and other such similar blasts should be maybe a bit louder or clearer, and also the cannon on a lot of the planes doesn’t always sound quite like I expect them to.
