Rated 8 out of 10 by gore 4 lyf really improved since battlestations midway
well this game is a sequel to battlestations midway i have got to say this game really improved after battlestations midway came out.now you could just drop a bomb on a ship and you could see parts of the ship coming off.the graphics are way better to.they have two campiagns now you could fight as american and japenese now.they also have a skirmish which is something for fun you could do types of battles in skirmish.the game also has new features like kamikaze,island capture,and much more.the storyline is bad and good sometimes i just couldn't understand what was happening sometimes.the sound is good to but if your commanding a ship and artillery blows up in the water near your ship theres no sound but in battlestations midway there is when that happens.the challenge is good to sometimes you can't beat a level super easily you have to find good tactics.they have also added new units to.well i thought this game was fun and you should buy it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by calstatebadboy wow just a geat game single and online
Let me tell you this game is beautiful offline and online. They are tons of modes I like escort but all modes are really good too. I played the traning then went online. People are online in all modes. This could be consider game of the year. Best seller on this site. Thanks edios this is how. A game should be made like. This one plus lots of replay value too. 9 out of 10 for me. I had been waiting for this game for about a year I am very happy with my purchase because I get bored with most shooters this game made me think a lot about history and courage because the usa and japan used to be at war in this game you play both sides so you learn about the other side like kamakizze planes and large boats even island capture so how can you not purchase this game its fun fun fun so stop reading and purchase. One last note it sounds good on surround sound and each plane sounds and flies diffrently that what sold me. Peace....

I have the "Battlestations: Midway" game and love it! The graphics are great, and the action is consuming! However I wish there was an arcade mode or multiplayer mode that does not require on-line play. More free range of movement or a free flight would be sweet. I am looking forward to this game and even if it does not have the above mentioned items I will buy and love it. For future reference--more games that allow more free play or roaming in either the Atlantic, Pacific or European theaters (or all) would be hands down a money maker. I prefer anything that has to do with WWII and especially a game that not only entertains you but also teaches some vital history lessons will always get my vote!! Also more A.I. so that it your experience is always changing would be amazing. But I am looking forward to this game and encourage anyone that likes realistic graphics and intense game-play to try this game and its predecessor "Battlestations: Midway". Can not wait for the release and future games with land, sea, and air roles in one game! Did I mention WWII would be preferred!

Battlestations Pacific is a really good game. This time around you have access to more planes and different types of ships. You can go from a Corsair to a P38 and many others. Also you can have access to many different types if ships. While I have played only the U.S. campaign, I think it is really good so far. It follows the major battles that took place in the pacific and while playing them it allows you to unlock different aircraft and ships and can make the battles even more intense. The graphics and explosions are very good as well, it is certainly not a let down in the game. The game also added a new feature that when you are shooting whether that be from the air or sea you can shoot at different parts of the ship to create fires or cool explosions (fuel,engine,munitions). If you are into any war games and like to play online with others, then I would certainly recommend it.

I have been waiting for the official release date for along time. This game which is the sequel to Eidos's Battlestations Midway which is one the best games I have ever played, gives you control of huge American and Japanese fleets that include destroyers, pt's, battleships, carriers, and a lot of other units that are combined with fair graphics. Battlestations pacific is expected to now give you control over land-based AA, ground troops, the Japanese suicide jets called the Orka, and over 27 new air and ground units to control, combined with up to 3 more multiplayer, improved graphics, more maps, and I can't forget about the full Japanese single player campaign that takes you from Pearl Harbor to the invasion of the Japanese home islands. These with a lot of other awesome things should make one of the best games to date.

Great ww2 battleship fun here! i own both games and love them. the storylines where great. historically accurate and it throws you out of the frying pan and into the helm of some of the grittyest sea fights in naval history ! theres no real limit to what you cant use.sub's, plane's,ship's, even some bases can be used to deal out some damage. but in all the fun there arethe few draw backs. for instance. in multiplayer my friends discovered that on one map if your down to carrier warfare and run out of both planes and ships you cannot win on eather side. it turns into a ramming fest of carriers and untill someone leaves your trapped and it has its glitches at times but its to be expected. all in all. great game and worth the buy. i just hope they continue the series and mabey spice it up a bit more.

I have seen all of the previews for this game but have only played the demo for BSM. The BSM demo really got me interested in the whole franchise. - Improvements to BSM - BSP uses a much better graphic engine making the land, water, sky, and vehicles look more realistic. There will also be a skirmish mode and different types of environments like rain and night. Sound is also greatly improved. A cockpit view in the planes have been added. One of my favorites is that the planes are now able to loose parts like metal and even wings. The battleships don't just blow up anymore they can also have weapons and its engines obliterated and break apart in flames.Water is also transparent to see subs at para scope level. And improvements to the strategic map have also been made. - Amazing Gameplay - Unlike any other strategy or ww2 game you are able to command your battles ships and planes and even drive and control them. You can bomb ships and land masses, drop troops, and take over territories. Use whatever strategy to destroy objectives, enemy battleships, planes, aircraft carriers, and even friendly fire. Basically this game is going to be a beast. The demo comes out Thursday April 30th for xbox 360 and pc.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MACK44 Best Strategy game of all time....
Battle Stations Midway is one of the best WWII games i have ever played. Just playing as the subs on covert missions or being a carrier and using your plane to attack is awesome. The one thing though I hope they fix in Pacific is the online. My friends and I loved paying it but when you start the map and you know where the enemy is and can see them was kind of dumb. They need to make it like it was in the Pacific and have it where you place your fleets where ever you want, then SEND scout planes out to find the other fleet and take it out by surprise with your carriers and there bombers. That would make the game more real. I mean i would freak if i saw a wave of bombers coming for my carriers and not know where they came from. Other than that the game was sick.

Nice larg campaigns as compared to battlestations midway.Superb graphics.At times you have a lot of things going on in a mission.for example there are times when you need to sink another carrier force.The planes from that group as well as a number of enemy fleets to defend your carrier from.sometimes youll have to deal with a submarine as well.All in one mission!Not just one mission either.some missions seem close to impossible.but its still very good. The voiceovers as many will tell you is probably the worst part of the game if thats a big deal to you.Not near as bad as battlestations midways voiceovers anyway.Be sure to use the training grounds.Very fun if your board but not in the mood for campaign stuff.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cpl.Mike Tired of playing E.T.O. W.W. 2Games-then buy this game!!!
Eidos really did an excellent job when they put this game together.What I liked about the game was that you have the option of playing either for Imperial Japan or American during the War in the Pacific.In Aviation and Naval training,you have your choice of various aircraft and ships to train with,sinking selected targets such as cargonships-destroyers-heavy cruisers and battleships.In Naval training,when going up against the enemy heavy cruiser and then the battleship,it is more likely that your chosen ship will take hits,prompting you to go into the "repair ship menu".This menu is 100% better to use,since you need to click the L button-go to the section that needs repair and then release the L button when done.The sound effects and graphics are outstanding when firing the main guns on your ships,especially when you have a heavy cruiser or a battleship(most of the light cruisers are good as well).When the enemy ship fires at you,you not only see and hear the guns fire,but you also hear the shells whiz towards you position,some miss and you see the splashes of water rising up or your ship takes a hit and the shell explodes.I have played both sides of the Pacific War and hope to complete both campaigns,especially the Japanese campaign because most of us miltary history buffs wonder"what if Japan won the battle of Midway"??
