Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X is an arcade flight game, in which players fly and fight against aircraft in the airspace above real world locations. Players can select either a first-person cockpit or third-person view, and use a range of weapons such as guns, Joint Strike Missiles, and flares. The game also includes online co-op functionality for the campaign, and deathmatch multiplayer.
Set in the near future where government-run military has been replaced by private military companies, David Crenshaw, a U.S. Air Force pilot in the elite unit named High Altitude Warfare Xperimental squadron, flies his last mission before the H.A.W.X program is deactivated. Crenshaw finds a new occupation as a pilot for the Artemis Global Security private corporation.
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X received relatively positive reviews, with an average score of 75%, praised for its realistic satellite mapping and overall fun and excitement, but criticized for its lack in multiplayer variety.
This is in fact, a high 3-star difficulty rating, as completing the campaign solo can be challenging, and unlocking the 28 online trophies will require some serious skills, if done legitimately. However, with a few boosting partners, the difficulty could be brought down to a low 3-star, though will still require much grinding and even luck.
Expect roughly 35-40 hours if done with boosting partners, and far longer if you're on your own.
The first thing you'll want to do is play through the campaign, while getting used to the controls and honing your skills. There are difficulty-related trophies which are stackable, and all modes are available from the start. So if you're in a rush for that platinum, you can begin the campaign on Elite difficulty. If this proves too challenging at first, then try Normal or Hard first, then a second playthrough on Elite.
Also, if you have any friends you can play together in co-op, then we highly recommend taking that course of action, as the campaign is much easier with friends than on your own.
Once you've gone through the campaign at least once, it's time to head into the online multiplayer. Here is where you'll be spending the majority of your time, as these 28 online trophies are both time consuming, require some serious skills, and luck. If you can find some boosting partners, then the difficulty of these trophies will be far easier, though still require some perfect co-ordination and luck - particularly for the Sitting Ducks trophy. If you're interested in finding some boosting partners, check out the forums under our Links tab.
Finally, after you've unlocked the online trophies, it's time to head back into the single player and mop-up any last missing trophies.
