Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is an arcade-style flight action game developed by Ubisoft Romania and published by Ubisoft. The game is the sequel to Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., released in 2009.


The game begins with Colonel David Crenshaw participating in a routine patrol mission in the Middle East. After halting an insurgent attack, a volley of missiles is fired at the Air Force base that Crenshaw was stationed at, with one of the missiles disabling Crenshaw's aircraft, resulting Crenshaw being in enemy captivity. A joint strike force composed of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, and a Ghost Recon squad executes an operation to rescue Crenshaw. In Scotland, Royal Navy Pilot Colin Munro encounters an unidentified passenger aircraft that explodes from an on-board bomb when undergoing training exercise. In Russia, an air force squadron led by Colonel Denisov and Captain Dmitri Sokov engages separatist aircraft but is ordered to retreat from the region after numerous Russian military installations have been attacked.




Getting into our first game you can see H.A.W.X. 2 numbers are a little weird. At the lower end of the resolution table you can see we lose a few FPS. Of course this isn't anything new when it comes to H.A.W.X. 2 and overclocked cards, but it's a bit annoying.


On the bright side at the most intensive resolution we see a nice little 10% boost in performance. At least the lower resolutions are still giving us huge FPS so a slight loss doesn't bother us too much. We just hope it isn't a trend.
