Action game that puts you in command of either a fighter/bomber plane, a destroyer ship, submarine, pt boat and control an aircraft carrier in Real-Time Strategy style. I had a little fun with this game and I'm sure I would've had a lot more pleasure with Battlestations: Midway if the controls were tuned and actually working properly!
+Switching from controlling planes to ships to submarines is fun (but unexplained in the game... actually found out by mistyping another keystroke!).
+Actual combat is pretty fun (once you get the hang of it).
-Awful and questionnable controls.
-Visuals both in graphical quality and models are very dated and bad looking (2007 ain't that far no?)
-Gameplay can be hard at times (difficulty spikes).
-Learning curve is extreme (aside from the PT Boat tutorial, you're left on your own afterwards).
-Game speed is way too slow. (takes forever to reach your target only to fail and have to start all over again 'repeatedly' is frustrating.
-Campaign is short and rather dull.
I would not recommend this game to anyone other than WWII purists and even then, you surely can find better alternatives out there! Best recommendation would be to get World of Warplanes and/or War Thunder instead... much better alternatives!
