Amazon.co.uk Review

Battlestations: Pacific is an action-packed WWII tactical shooter on an extraordinary scale and features two distinctly different single player campaigns. As the Americans, the game picks up the story where Battlestations: Midway left off and allows players to fight their way from The Battle of Midway to Okinawa as they try to secure peace in the Pacific. As the Japanese however, players take control of the Imperial Japanese fleet and have the unique chance to fight at Pearl Harbor before attempting to change the course of history and take full control of the Pacific Ocean.

Battlestations: Pacific offers a unique blend of action and strategy, as players must plan their moves carefully on huge open-world arenas and then fight in the air, above sea and underwater as they take direct control of their units and storm into combat. Join forces with friends online or play solo against the computer controlled opponents in the all-new Skirmish mode or battle each other in one of the five new, innovative multiplayer modes.

  • Combined Real-Time Strategy, Flight, and Naval Action Gameplay: Command the air, sea, and sub forces. Launch full-scale attacks and at anytime switch to and take full-control of any plane, ship or sub. You command, fly the attack, fire the battleship's 15-inch guns, and submerge the mini-sub anyway you choose throughout the battle.
  • Two Massive Campaigns: 28 full-scale battles across two unique campaigns. The historic American campaign begins after Midway and goes to Guadalcanal, Leyte, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and more. The "what if" Japanese campaign begins at Pearl Harbor and goes to the Java Sea, Port Moresby, Midway, and beyond.
  • 100 War Machines: Fighters, bombers, carriers, battleships, cruisers, destroyers, subs, mini-subs and more. 17 US planes including the new Corsair fighters and Curtis Helldivers, and 20 Japanese planes including the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden (Thunderbolt), and the night-fighting Nakajima J1N1 Gekko.
  • Innovative Online Multiplayer Battles: Huge multi-unit battles for up to eight players (four on each side) on Games For Windows LIVE. The largest battle involves over 100 units. Includes five all-new online gameplay modes: Island capture, Duel, Siege, Escort, and Competitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A step forward in Action/Strategy 14 May 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Those of you that have not played Battlestations Midway (the prequel to Pacific) will be in for a huge surprise with this game that blends both action and strategy together to defeat your foes in air,sea and under-sea. Fans of the previous game will also find that graphics, audio and the general feel of the game have all been greatly improved, also with a variety of extra game-modes and multiplayer extras.

The game has 2 singleplayer campaigns, American and Japanese. You can relive history as the Americans or rewrite as the Japanese which brings an extra twist to the game. Also with the introduction of "Skirmish" mode into Battlestations vastly lengthens the game and gives it much mroe of a replay value than that of the first one. If you are a novice of the Battlestations genre then the controls might be a bit difficult to start off with but anyonre who has played and enjoyed the first Battlestations will be at least familiar with the controls and what the units do, whether its firing your broadsides on a battleship or conducting a torpedo run on an enemy carrier.

As mentioned previously the graphics and audio have had a complete over-haul and now both look and sound much better. The water effects are especially impressive. The game has also introduced the option of "Night Battles" which means that your ships sway in the waves of the sea. This not only is a good idea but looks spectacular.

However, with all of these great points there must be some flaws. During the campaign the player may seem as if some of the missions drag on a little bit. Earlier on I said how the audio had greatly improved it has, but not all of it. The sound-effects of explosion and planes are great but the voice acting isnt.

Overall this is a great and enjoyable game, easily recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the game always should have been,.... 18 May 2009
By J. Ryan
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I liked the original incarnation of Midway but always felt it was a bit lacking in terms of graphics and strategy. This new release has resolved these issues.
Graphics, whilst not mind-blowing are a far improvement on Midway and certainly add to the 'feeling' of the game. Sounds are marginally improved.
The game is played on two levels,.. 1. As a strategic map view with the ability to command your own units and view the unvieling theatre on both sides. 2. As an 'in action' unit view so you are able to take control of your vessel/aircraft. This is where Eidos have really improved things,.. the ships and aircraft have more 'feel' to them whether from the firepower, damage affect, or manoevring. Vessels such as Destroyers do hold more of a potential impact in the game than previously whilst maintaining their obvious vunerabilities.
The single player campaigns, even at Expert level are not really that challenging but do allow you to unlock further units for use in off and online games, so certainly worth seeing both US and Jap campaigns to the end. The choice of aircraft and vessels is massively improved as well, all adding to the online gameplay experience. The online match selection has improved with the ability to see the host's ping before joining the game,. so you do not end up with the predecessors issue of planes flying backwards etc. Equally the breadth of online gameplay has increased massively with many options such as siege, escort and islands(most popular online). The adoption of Command Points also means that the previous problem of having to hang around in the game for 40-odd minutes if you were destroyed early is negated (ie you could have 300 cp's which would buy you a couple of destroyers and a fighter,..

I am not very good at many of the games that need good control of many functions at once. Probably my age. I still found this game enjoyable, especially in the training mode. Here you can practise away without being shot at and thus not getting frustrated too soon. Have not got into the campaigns as yet but I'm getting very good piloting a Hurricane.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique combined fleet action! 22 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been really enjoying this game. Taking control of either the US or Japanese navies, you fight the pacific campaign in a fantastically engaging way. The game really has three main aspects: real-time battle strategy, naval action and flight sim. The beautiful thing about this game is that most missions involve all three. While the flight sim aspect is not quite as realistic as something like Il2 Sturmovik, it is involving and detailed enough, and the action is pleasantly intense. At your own leisure, you can switch between air units and naval units, and can give orders to units you are not controlling directly. The naval aspect is terrificly exciting, and it's a rare pleasure (in the gaming world) to get to directly control a fleet of warships or a single vessel, firing the big guns and hunting submarines.
The game really comes alive when your objectives involve a combined aerial and naval assault. Poor planning can result in the loss of too many ships, and I've found myself in problems when I haven't used my forces to their strengths. Got to clear the beach before you send those marines in!
Considering the wide variety of vehicle types under your command, the control system is remarkably intuitive (although the lack of invert on the plane's elevator controls takes a while to get used to if you're a flight sim fan) and easy to get to grips with. The strategy aspect, as we would hope, is slightly more challenging, but it is sometimes possible to win battles using brawn and guts rather than brains and foresight. The visuals are as good as they need to be, although the lack of cockpit detail is perhaps slightly dissapointing. However, when weighed against the seriously vast playing areas, you begin to forget about it. The mission environments are vast.

A good idea not executed well. Awkward controls, dodgy physics and average graphics mean that I have only played it twice. Shame.
