Brazilian Dogfight: HAWX Demo


Looks like it really might be time to dust-off that joystick Alec was getting all whimsical about: Ubisoft's fancy-flyin' aerial combat game is almost upon us (the full game is out on March 13th), and the PC demo has crash-landed its way onto servers across the world. No simulation here, it's arcade-tastic, obviously, but this two-level demo allows you to fly with "assist" on and off, allowing you to fly with computer guidance, or with just your own reflexes. And it all comes with some Clancy-tastic military undertones: private military companies are taking the skies to play out Top Gun fantasies over the world's near-future hotspots. The 1.24gb demo is here. Tell us exactly what you think in the comments below. (Minimum and recommended specs for demo after the jump - plus dogfighting action!)
