""The original H.A.W.X. found itself stuck in an awkward position. Fans of flight sims decried the lack of realism, including the absence of fuel gauges and plane-specific physics. Meanwhile, fans of arcade-style shooters craved more in-your-face explosions and afterburner-fueled dogfights. Instead of giving in completely to either side, H.A.W.X. 2 is sticking to its guns and bolstering gameplay with new features and types of missions.""
