More goodness from The Hut. Today, using the voucher code PLAY10, you'll be able to snaffle an extra 10% off of any Playstation daily deals you can find over at the big blue vendor. We already brought a few this morning, but we'll be highlighting a couple more throughout the day, kicking off with combat flight-sim H.A.W.X.
If you fancy taking to the skies for some slick dogfighting action then head on over to The Hut where they have the PS3 version listed for £9.93, already nearly a good £5 cheaper than the nearest competitor (Amazon Jersey - £14.73). But with the added voucher code, you're looking at a saving closer to £6, and nabbing one of the most fun games of last year for under a tenner.
Dubious acronyms aside (the title stands for High Altitude Warfare eXperimental squadron), this is a pretty good combat flight-sim. It looks good, plays great, and brings interactive Top Gun that little bit closer to reality, which is all we really want from a game like this really.
There's a plot involving evil PMCs and a bunch of Communists, and there are some nifty touches with the ERS (Enhanced Reality System), which is basically just a ring flying mini-game to get you perfectly lined up for a shot, and the Assistance OFF mode, which sees the camera pan out for some death-defying manoeuvres.
I would say that you should go out and buy Ace Combat VI instead, but unfortunately that's not an option for PS3 owners. However, H.A.W.X. certainly provides enough aerial entertainment for any fans of the genre. It's particularly good for quick stints, and it's arcade style takes some beating. Clancy fans should be wary, though, as it doesn't quite manage to stack up against the high standards of previous series, but then this is a first instalment. Well worth a punt for this price.
