The arcade-style flight simulator Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. is really good, which is why we included it in our list of best games.
The events of the game take place between 2014 and 2021, which is a near future at the time of the game’s release. The player will assume the role of a mercenary and former US Air Force pilot, fighting against a coalition of Latin American states. The game can be played solo or as part of a team, with multiplayer cooperative mode available. Players can enjoy flying modern aircraft from global aviation companies.
Controlling the aircraft is easy. Naturally, Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. is not on the same level as Microsoft Flight Simulator, but the objectives here are completely different. In this game, gamers can relax and enjoy flying and shooting down enemies without any prior training. This is what made the project very popular and allowed it to surpass many sequels.
In reality, there are really good flight simulators available today. Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War and War Thunder didn’t make it into our top list, but they are also worth attention. We leave it up to you to decide on each flight simulator’s merits. However, to do that, you will have to try them out for yourself.
