Tucked away within Ubisoft's financial results announcements from yesterday was news that Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. had moved a million copies worldwide since launch last month.
For what amounts to little more than a modern-day Rogue Squadron clone, which was lacking in even the backhanded militaristic charm of other Clancy games, that's an impressive feat!
Guess it goes to show that, despite the flight sim genre going into a coma in recent years, people still want to fly jets and shoot at other people in jets.
I know I do. Which is why, above criticisms and all, I still found myself playing the game for days on end. Desperate times, desperate measures, etc etc, you know the deal.
