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.

If you are here looking for a great sequal to the first Ace Patrol game than I'm afraid to tell you that it's not here. If your looking for a cool turn bases WW2 airplane dogfighter game, well again. it's not here. I'm afraid to say that this game is actually unplayable and an embarasment to Sid Meier's name and Firaxs it's self. Why? here's why.

-No fullscreen option. Normally that's okay but when the first Ace Patrol game had it and this one doesn't...
-There's no graphics. No I'm serious, you load into the game after the main menu (which as graphics) and your presented with a choice of who to fight with. On this screen you see outlines of planes but no color or graphics. Next you get to chose a pilot from 4 different portraits which, some how, look uglier than the first game.

After all that you get to pick your first mission... if you can find it. the plains are bright purple, the background textrures are black, you can't see any buttons to controll your planes and the game is just unplayable.

Reading the forums there have been many threads about this yet the game has never been updated. So avaoid at all costs, go play the original Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, it's much better.

Basically the same game as the original Ace Patrol, except it somehow looks a lot worse. Get the original instead, preferably on a tablet.

I was a rookie pilot just getting my wings on a mission to shoot down enemy Japanese planes. My maneuvers were weak and so was my aim. I shot down a few but was lost a little later behind enemy lines. Next up came my partner who seemed to fair better but unlucky for him he was terrible too. One by one what was once a total of four slowly became none after failed missions over and over till we were all lost behind enemy lines with no way of escape. This is the sad story of our our lost soldiers of war.

Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies is a casual strategy hex-grid style game. You control four total pilots which you maneuver around the board trying to take out the enemies. When you start you have a very limited choice of movements. Over time you earn upgrades and better planes to help you out against tougher and tougher enemies. You are scored on each mission on how well you perform. The more you get hit or if you lose a pilot your points drop.

There is a total of eight areas with 4 missions to each one. You will fly around at Pearl Harbor, Midway, Okinawa, and a few other locations on the pacific. You can still fail a mission and move on to the next one. You'll just end up with a lower overall score.

Pacific Skies is not a bad game and you can get it for fairly cheap. It also comes from the great Sid Meier who has a fantastic game making record. So if you enjoy a little challenge, WWII history, or Sid Meier games I recommend you try this game out.

Bear Rating 8/10
