The 1.3GB Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. PC demo is finally available for download. Featuring two single-player levels, and no co-op multiplayer (as was in the Xbox 360 release), the demo will entertain you for at least twenty minutes.

:rofl

It's better than the console version.

The shots were taken at 1920x1200, 4xAA, SSAO High, DX10.
It supports DX10.1, too.

Good controls on the keyboard, wasn't expecting that.

If you're referring to the shots, they were taken during the tutorial.

The graphics are way better than the 360.

To run in DX10 mode, right click the game shortcut and select to run in DX10, one thing to note however is that SLI is not working yet in DX10 mode, so tomorrow an SLI Enhancment Patch will be released.

Tomorrow? It's not even lunch time there yet... :p

The Assistand Mode is the most idiotic feature i have ever seen. Seriously. And the game forces it in training mode. What a bunch of crap

The game runs great and looks amazing. The mouse movement is ****ed up (particularly the deadzone). You can easily notice what i mean when you want to move the plane reaaaaaaally slow (just an inch) to gun-shot someone.

You will move a bit the mouse but the plane will keep going in your previous direction. You will move it more and still the plane won't change direction. You will move it even more and even though the plane will finally change direction, it won't be the ammount you wanted (it will be too much so you'll have to re-possition again the plane). No precision at all :mad:

I played it with a 360 controller and had an absolute blast. This is a must-buy for me...

Just like the 360 demo, this game is boring. There is a lot going on but you don't have much to do other than fly around and wait for the auto-lock to do the rest :thumbdwn:

I assume you played on hard mode and used "expert targeting"?

I found the game quite exhilirating and fun. The tutorial was massively annoying because it forced you into that weird distant camera thing, but once I could use the behind the plane view in mission two, I was good to go. Had a blast, and since you have to line your shots up, then keep the target in front of you while the missle flies, I would say lock-on does not do it all for you. I have no idea what "expert" aiming is and am afraid to try it.

If you are referring to the "Assistance Mode Off: expert mode" then it simply removes the guidance triangles. In other words it doesn't show you a path to get behind the enemy and you are free to do whatever you think will get the job done

Well that's optional in the basic mode anyway, you have to press a button to initiate it.

^ too bad you dont land or take off. Start the mission taking off would of been cool.

Anyway just finished playing the demo. It was fun, the game ran great even with the fact that the sli was not working :D I will be buying a new joystick for this game to replace my old Sidewinder 2 that I have been using since 2001. :)
