It's a pretty good game, for a $5.00 game. Some of the animations when the planes maneuver clearly weren't finished or half heartedly put together. Other then that it's a very fun casual game.

Ace Patrol Pacific Skies is basically the exact same game as Ace Patrol (which was set in WW1) moved to WW2 Pacific Theater where you play the Japanese side or the American side.

The game is best described as a turn-based air combat where you move planes from hex to hex, where the "attitude" and "altitude" of the plane, as well as the skill of the pilot, determines what moves you can make. If you are low, you can't use a power dive (drop several levels of altitude) or "falling leaf" (drop several levels of altitude and face a specific direction), for example, or if you were in a left turn, you can't immediately switch to a sharp right turn (unless you learned "roll" manuevers). This is harder to explain than to see for yourself by watching the videos.

You control 2 or 4 planes and corresponding pilots. As pilots make "kills" they gain experience that can be translated to better power moves. So it's not good if you let one pilot do all the killing... Share the bounty.

In a bit of ahistorical equality, there are female pilots (fortunately, you can turn that off).

Try not to let your pilots get shot down. They can be kept prisoner or end up in hospital for several missions. The planes themselves can also be damaged and repairs are not instantaneous.

Typically you have about 6 missions per "year" and there's a big mission at the end. and 4 years in a campaign. You are scored based on how much damage you caused, did you complete your objective (such as taking out a ground target), vs. how much damage did you suffer.

If you like Ace Patrol, Pacific Skies is the same game with faster planes.

Keeps crashing for no reason

Update: I now have a new computer, now actually works. Still, the game is horrible and buggy. Has a good idea though.

Overall, I recommend it. It's a fun strategy game that can be played either in short bursts on over a long period of time(1+ Hours). In many ways it improves upon the original Ace Patrol, such as more modern planes, new maneuvers, better plane customization, and more detailed maps. But in they totally ruined the feeling of choice the first Ace Patrol had, where you can choose what types of missions you wanted to do, where you did the mission types you liked and avoided the ones you didn't, except for when you were desperate for points to win that Defense/Offense and that mission type you didn't like had bonus points that period.

In both Ace Patrols a campaign consists of alternating between offense and defense, with each offense/defense having 5 battles. Each battle you got to pick between 1-3(1 being the final battle) different mission types. So the whole offense/defense you got to choose your favorites.

In Pacific Skies(this game), It's still a Campaign with 5 alternating Offenses/Defenses and 5 Battles each, but now you can pick your mission type. It just randomly picks one, which BLOWS.

Being able to pick my favorites, or picking my disliked types when I wanted variety was my favorite part. Since enemy Squadrons would rotate pilots between battles, so if the current battle had pilots you didn't like, you can choose a more defensive mission type. But that's gone in this game.

And for some ungodly reason, they removed the full screen option. It was more convenience than anything else, but I see no good reason to remove it since Pacific Skies is basically a retexture of the first game.

Anyway, as a final comment: Unless you hate the planes in the first game or love the planes in this game, just get the fist Ace Patrol, it's better. Though this game is still good too, I guess.

Très bon petit wargame sur l'Aviation. Tour par tour constitué de manoeuvres aériennes rappellant le jeu "L'As des As" pour ceux qui connaissent. Plusieurs niveaux de jeu en solo (le dernier niveau est cauchemardesque et demande de la patience dans sa façon de jouer). Le gros point négatif, c'est le manque d'un vrai jeu MP.
