Note: Summary at the bottom of the review.
The second "Ace Patrol" game, "Pacific Skies" is a turn-based strategy (TBS) game that is small in scope, simple, yet very engaging and nice to pick up and play for a bit. There really aren't that many historical air combat TBS games out there, so it is hard to compare it to anything else. It feels a bit like a smartphone-port, yet the controls work well so I cannot really say that this is a drawback in itself. The game IS casual, so do not expect it to have overly much complexity to it. The core of the game is assigning different maneuvers to your pilot(s), trying to put them in the best position to shoot down the enemy. As you progress, you unlock new maneuvers and gain new planes and improvements.
*Simple, engaging pick-up-and-play gameplay.
*Both sides are balanced the same.
*Has a certain charm to its style.
*Not that much depth to it.
A fun little TBS game that will cater to your desire for a casual TBS experience, Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies is worth its pricetag so long as you do not expect anything with too much depth and complexity to it. 6/10 - Recommended.
