Uniquely conceived for the Wii™ system from Nintendo, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X® 2 for Wii takes place in the time period between the original HAWX game and the HAWX 2 next-gen experience. When David Crenshaw, commander of the HAWX squadron, leaves for the Middle East, he delegates command of the U.S. wing of the HAWX squadron to an old friend, Col. Alexander "DAGGER" Bowman.
With the USAF now training more UAV pilots than "real" fighter pilots, aerial warfare is quickly evolving and manned aircraft are becoming a thing of the past. Playing as Bowman, you and your squadron will engage in the first battle between pilots and remote-controlled aircraft and make a final stand as the last knights of the sky.
Built from the ground up for Wii, HAWX 2 opens a new chapter in the air combat genre, offering an intense co-op experience for flight enthusiasts of all levels and engaging players in every aspect of near-future jet fighter conflicts.
Follow an immersive story written by Hollywood veterans John Zuur Platten and Flint Dille and voiced by Hollywood stars such as Golden Globe-winner Ron Perlman and David Zayas (Dexter, Oz) among others.
The whole game can be played at any time in co-op mode with a second Wii Remote™, the second player functioning as the back-seat pilot - helping to defend the airplane or take down enemies. Special multiplayer mode brings back the classic arcade feel, allowing up to 8 players to take part in retro-fun action.
Having the option to engage your enemy or to give air support to ground allies enriches the experience. The interactive dialogue feature will give you the opportunity to discover secret aspects of the story.
Flying in H.A.W.X 2 doesn't require a stint at the academy. Easy controls are available in both classic manner and tuned motion-enabled options, as well as an autopilot feature that flies the craft, leaving only the point-and-shoot mechanics for the youngest players who don?t need the full set of pilot skills, or their parents in the wingman seat.
