F.A.S.T. vs. Ace Combat XI vs. H.A.W.X.

I've tried to get into the jet fighter type games since I was watching a few videos on some Ace Combat games, and they looked like a ton of fun. Since there seems to be a few really stand out ones right now, I wanted to know which one to go for. Money isn't a large factor for me, as I'll be able to afford any one of them and still get N.O.V.A., my biggest concern right now. Overall, I just want to know which one is the best gameplay wise, which has the greatest amount of content, which gives the most bang for your buck, and overall which one you just recommend the most.

I'm going to HAWX lot and I liked the story not so short as in the others
bring more aircraft than its competitors generally worth acquiring this game,and the graphics are very good.
I get and am very happy with the game really was what expected.
truth you will not regret ....

From the sounds of things, it's a definite toss up between FAST and HAWX. Ace Combat just doesn't have enough content to justify $8, and from the sounds of things it has a good chance of being slow on my 1g. I like the amount of content in FAST and the online multiplayer sounds fun, and HAWX is bound to have a decent story because it's by Tom Clancy, and I like a good single player campaign since I can't always be fighting another person. I might get both since FAST is only $0.99.

I have one final question. Which of the 2 is easier for beginners? As I said before, I have never played any jet fighter games before, and I just want to be able to relatively ease into the game. I want to be able to get used to the game style, although I don't think I'll have an issue with that. I just want something that starts relatively easy, then ramps up the difficulty in reasonable incriments so I don't get to frusterated with it.

mmmm..
HAWX has the option to play with the pad-virtual and the accelerometer. is a question of seeing which is more comfortable for you in my opinion the two go very well, but vote more for the pad-virtual

Get H.A.W.X. Easily the best.

Yeah, I'm really leaning towards HAWX now. I have a good feeling since it comes from 2 companies I know always make great games, and just looking at HAWX it has much more content than FAST. I'll probably buy that and then get FAST if I need some online. It seems to be getting some good reception and it's the only one with an actual campaign with different objectives, not just battling other planes.
