I adquired this game with the last humble bundle for a few dollars. According to that, I think it was a good deal taking into account how much I expended.

The game itself has beautiful graphics and if you like WWII aircraft, you´re going to enjoy the views. On the other hand, controls can be a little bit hard to get even if you have a gamepad (I strongly recommend trying different settings at the realism part of the game settings window) and after some missions, it gets kind of repititive.

In summary, not a good buy for 20$, but a reasonably good one for 5$ or less. I would rate it with a 6.5/10

Linux version has many issues, including bad graphical quality and control problems that have yet to be fixed after a month. Would not recommend to anyone on Linux

I wouldn't consider this a simulator if I was at gunpoint. The flight mechanics are... rough to say the least. The keyboard mapping is almost absent from what I can tell. Flying by mouse, there are maybe five or so keys including a second primary fire button... just in case your left click breaks. Taking off from a carrier I found myself rocketed abruptly upwards by some mystical force halfway across the deck and then when landing stopped about as abruptly as hitting a brick wall. The voice acting in the campaign felt a bit forced and was empty of depth or feeling (especially in the Japanese campaign) and didn't really contribute anything to a storyline. The missions are extremely repetetive as well (bomb a target, switch planes, bomb said target again).

On the better side, the game did have some pretty cool explosions and the planes burning out of the sky were as asthetically pleasing as it gets. Bullet and cannon impacts in both soil and water are pretty well mimmicked although the auto aim defeats the whole purpose of WWII dogfighting. Ships will sink if they are destroyed, which is nice, although I found it odd that the USS Arizona was capsized by torpedos and fully submerged in shallow water in about one full minute...

All in all I'd say this game is worth 3 out of 10 stars. Would not ever recommend this to anyone looking for a "flight sim" despite what any of the trailers or pictures make it out to be.

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is an arcade flying game set in the Pacific Theater of second world war between the Imperial Japanese Navy and United States Navy.

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers gameplay is quite simple and arcadish. Like the name suggest, your plane mostly start from an aircraft carrier before flying into combat, and your main missions all the time is to protect your carrier from enemy attack while doing mission assigned to you in the same time. As the American Navy you will relive the story of the legendary USS Enterprise, the last surviving American aircraft carrier in the pacific.

The graphics of Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is quite good. The water shader are incredibly beautiful, and since the game are mostly naval sea battles/carrier battles, it makes the game so epic. The planes and ships models are also beautiful and realistic.

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is another good arcade game. I recommend this.

Rating 8/10

Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is an interesting take on the Pacific War, with the Japanese campaign especially bringing a more human element to the story. As a history buff, especially concerning the war in the Pacific, this game has piqued my interest for some time. However, there are several historical inaccuracies, and gameplay becomes repetitive after the fifth hour or so. I have encountered multiple graphical bugs, and a game crash at the end of the final Japanese mission. If you can get this game for five dollars or less, and you love flight simulators or World War 2 flight games, then by all means go ahead and pick it up. But if you want a game that truly shines when showing naval and aerial warfare in the Pacific Theater, check out the Battlestations duology. Otherwise, stay clear of this noble but poorly executed attempt to recreate the War in the Pacific.
