  • Anyone else notice a quick scene from End War in one of the smaller vids during a cut scene?

    Was of a satellite over the earth with a grid covering the planet, was a close-up shot. I got a kick out of that, and then to learn the game had voice support too was a happy moment. Be really cool to see the series tied together somehow, like if you call for air support in EndWar a player in HAWX can blow up your target, but otherwise the two battles simply rage on in different playing fields.

    That is sadly, about the only nifty IDEA I can say about this game. I am highly disappointed in the lack of training wheels anywhere in the game. Has potential if you can fly FROM the cockpit WITHOUT assistance and still have EXPERT control over the airplane. I don't mind having the hand holding for people who want it, but come common....give those of us who want to really fly the opportunity too, eh?

    But we do we gamers know. So hard for a developer to go BOTH ways with a game....having the "easy" mode and "expert" mode from the ground up. Wishful thinking. :P
