Oh dear; I wanted to like this game so much as it had the backing of the prestigious satellite tv channel, but I was (and still am) hugely dissapointed. Background graphics are absolutely average (PS2 on a good day) whilst realism and gameplay is amazingly absent. Marvel as the Japanese Zero's come swooping in, making turns and moving so unrealistically that it makes you cringe into your AAA. I started on the normal level but after storming through 4 levels in 15 minutes, I re-started on hard. I then got 2 levels in and turned it off, opting to re-visit R6 Vegas (1) instead.

My advice? wait for the bargin bin sales or keep an eye out for when I flog mine.

The low price of this game draws you in because its so cheap, but it should be must cheaper. Luckly i Got red of mine in the second day i had it. I got 23 pounds back which still isn't enough. Biggest waste of two pounds ive ever spent! SERIOUSLY!!! This game is PANTS! Can be completed on hardest level in two hours! Online doesnt work (or its so bad no body wants to go online on it)! Graphics are ps1 standard! Game play is the worst in history of games. And the story line is rubbish. If i could use harsher language I would and if i could id give it a rating of -10. DONT GET THIS USELESS RUBBISH GAME!!!!!!!!DONT

History Channel: Battle for the Pacific is a generic World War 2 shooter. It uses TV footage to introduce missions in a similar style to early Call of Duty titles. Whilst the presentation here is good, gameplay is quite the opposite. It brings absolutely nothing new, with repetitive combat and abysmal graphics.
The general theme is the American campaign to take various Pacific islands. However, there's no plot development, with missions ending suddenly. Fellow soldiers have no personalities, repeating the same dialogue endlessly. Draw distance is embarrassingly bad, with objects randomly appearing. One example is a section requiring the defusal of landmines, which pop into view mere feet away.
Level design is also horrendous. The opening level, Wake Island, is a tedious trawl through identical looking trenches. And things don't improve throughout the games incredibly short length. Every mission requires you to follow someone, somewhere. What makes this so frustrating is any variation leads to immediate failure. It also means exploration is impossible. Combat lacks any sense of empowerment. Animation is a joke; enemies all look and move identically. In fact the whole presentation is appalling. Controls cannot be altered, with only one scheme available.

In the saturated market of WW2 shooters, Battle For The Pacific is arguably the most shameless. Using the History Channel as a template, it claims authenticity. With quotes like, `Experience history brought to life', and `Relive epic land battles fought on some of the most brutal and unforgiving battlefields in recorded history'.
Instead, its a shambles, with none of the scale or scope this flimsy marketing would have you believe. A terrible shooter.

I will keep this short as I am not too good at writing reviews, and I am only about 4-5 hours into the game.

I am really enjoying this game. I generally play rpgs, but I was looking for something different to play, so I picked this up. The game seemed a little slow at first, but as I am getting into it, it is turning out to be great fun. As soon as I get this finished I will post my full report.
