Reviews for "H.A.W.X 2- The 8-bit game"


20year old Tiger Heli beats this any day. Is it mandatory to always have a battleship boss fight in games like this?

A clever idea

This is a fun and functional shooter. The graphics and sound are charming 8 bit fair and the challenge is decent for the most part. My only major gripes are the fact that the game is a bit too random at times. I would go out of my way to shoot down the power up helicopters, so I could improve my weapon, and more than half the time, it was just an extra points medal.
This also plays into the fact that the only weapon worth using is the spread shot. I assume the basic fire and missiles are stronger, but the difference isn't noticeable enough to make them worth it. So I shoot down more power up helicopters, only to get a bunch of point medals and upgrades for weapons I don't want AND dodge enemy fire at the same time.
And again, this wouldn't be a major issue if you get the spread shot early on, but every time you start the next level, you lose all your power ups! This is especially a problem in the final level, because so much is thrown at you before you even see your first power up helicopter and even if you get to the helicopter, there's a chance that it won;t benefit you at all!
I was also disappointed that there was no final boss. Just a little survival rush at the end, till your crew blew the train up. Not very climactic.
Most of this review has been negative, but I actually did enjoy this game. There was a nice selection of planes, and a wide variety of enemy types to blow up.
Maybe I'll actually play the original Hawx game now!

and I actually like these kinds of games.

At first i dug that it was difficult. But the powerups basically make no sense. Other than the spread shot the others are useless because you are forced to fly directly at what you want to shoot. Which means you are always ducking into the line of fire. Also when you die you lose all power, so basically when you die once you get owned.

i love 8 bit games so im not gonna be harsh

but seriously this needed some special moves and power ups or something


i kinda liked it, and that goes for this game and the actual HAWX game too, it was fun, but not really the kind of games i like to play
