I love the graphics and feel of Battlestations: Pacific. It cuts out all the realistic difficulties of controlling airplanes and ships and gets straight to the thrill of torpedoing hulking battleships and bombing beach heads.

The flow of carrier combat, however, is ruined by adhering to regenerating ammo. Instead of attacking, returning, refueling, attacking the flow is attacking, flying in a circle until shot down, respawn, attacking. This was a high point of Battlestations: Midway so it really bugged me that it changed.

I played this in 2012 and completed the main storyline modes. I was not able to play multiplayer.

I am a huge fan of WWII naval history and this game provided an experience like no other. The gameplay is great, if you are into this sort of thing, and as long as you have 64 bit java, you can run the highest resolution with no problem. It is at least 95% historically accurate as far as I've seen. The only bad thing is when it rains in the game, (level 2 of US campain) the game DROPS fps to like 10-3. It is a step up from its predecessor, Battlestations Midway, although I recommend that as well. Eidos did a great job with this game.

I did the update for LIVE and now my game will not open. But it is a good game just do not do the LIVE update(witch allows you to save games and play online).

This naval warfare game has an interest mix between real-time strategy and action, allowing you to command a fleet of ships from the tactical map and be able to take direct control of individual ships and planes. I usually play RTS games and action games and I am also interested in naval combat as well so this game fits me pretty well.

The game looks great and sounds great as well. Every ship and plane model is very detailed and every ship that is capable of firing artillery sounds powerful, especially the Iowa-class battleship. The music lively and bombastic, it reminds me a bit of the music from Silent Hunter 4. Some people say the voice acting is horrible but I'm not bothered by it. It's not the worst voice acting I've heard but it's not the best I've heard either. There are some missions that are slower than others, only allowing you control specific units until certain objectives are completed during a mission but there are other missions that allow you to control any unit given to you.

Some campaign missions can be 30 minutes or up to an hour long, depending on the player's playstyle. Plus, unlockable ships and planes can be obtained from completing hidden objectives in campaign missions. These unlocks can be used in any mission that will allow it and they can be used in missions you've already played, which makes for great replay value. Powerful ships like the Iowa-class battleship and planes like the TBM Avenger which can launch powerful anti-ship rockets can make missions you've played before a bit easier and more fun.

Overall, it's a fun game to play. I got it for a much lower price than it was first released. It's about $10 so I think it's quite a bargain.
