Do you have the need? The need for speed? Once upon a time I did. A good portion of my childhood was spent in San Diego near the Miramar base. For those that don't know, Miramar used to be the home of TOPGUN, which was also made famous by the movie. It was where the elite fighter pilots were trained. During elementary and middle school, I was able to witness many training exercises. The base has since been changed and is now used for helicopter and plane repair. Sadly, I had poor eye sight, and PRK/Lasik hadn't been perfected, so I was discouraged from pursuing a career as a pilot.

 

To be honest, I've never been a fan of traditional flight simulator games. My preference has always been space combat. One of my absolute favorite series of games when I was younger was Star Wars X-Wing / Tie Fighter. There was a relate-able theme with the flying elements as I was, and still am, a Star Wars fan. I was never big on actual real war flying games, just the FPS ones. I think my last experience with a combat flying game was Secret Weapons of Luftwaffe back in the 90's. That might soon change.

 

Ubisoft has recently released H.A.W.X. 2, the next game of the H.A.W.X. series. For those that don't know, H.A.W.X. is short for; High Altitude Warfare Experimental. This is an air combat series of games similar to Ace Combat. However, this sequel boasts new features, which include more aircraft, new gameplay enhancements, like night vision attacks, takeoff and landing, precision weaponry, and much more.
