Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is an arcade flight game, and a sequel to the 2009 H.A.W.X. Players fly and fight against aircraft in the airspace above real world locations, in either a first-person cockpit or third-person view, using a range of weapons such as guns and flares, as well as the newly added stand-off missiles, precision missiles, and precision bombs. The game also includes online co-op functionality for the campaign, and deathmatch multiplayer.
Following the events of the previous game, Colonel Crenshaw has been rescued from the insurgents in the Middle East. He stoon teams up with Russian agent Drachev to take care of the insurgents, in a series of missions that will soon take the war to Russian lands.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 received mixed reviews with an average score of 68%, praised for some of the improvements from the previous title, but criticized by some for its repetitive missions and story.
The 3-star difficulty is mainly due to the 13 online trophies which can be quite difficulty to collect legitimately. However, if you have a boosting partner, they become extremely easy - bringing the difficulty rating for the Platinum down to a 2-star. The remaining offline trophies are not particularly hard, and the game itself is shorter than its prequel. Overall, the platinum for H.A.W.X. 2 is arguably easier than that on the first installment.
Expect around 30 hours for the platinum, and far more if you're attempting the online trophies legitimately.
You'll probably want to begin things by playing through the Campaign. If you wish to make things easier, you can select to play on Recruit difficulty. It should also be noted that there are two missable trophies: No Restrictions and Peripheral Vision, which cannot be done from the Mission Select. An easy way to get these is at the beginning of Mission 2, named Training Day. Switch the Assistance Off after take-off and fly as fast as possible until both trophies unlock.
With the Campaign finished and a good knowledge of the game and controls, it's time to move onto unlocking those 13 online trophies. Your ultimate goal is to reach level 50 for the Maxed trophy, though there are a number of others to work on in the meantime. Be sure to check out the HAWX 2 trophy guide links under our Links tab for their requirements, as well as the boosting forums if you're having trouble finding people to play with, or are looking to boost.
Finally, use the Mission Select to mop-up anything you're still missing.
