Summary: To start off my review, This will not work on windows 8 or 8.1. Bummer. But with my knowledge of computers. I have installed a copy of windows Vista Ultimate into my Virtual Machine, downloaded steam (I have steam account) and the setup was easy. Great game play I like WW2 Naval warfare games and the graphics is great. I have this game on Xbox but my basement is being renovated. So for the price (which by the way is priced correctly), its worth the money.
Summary: Just applied for return and refund. Game appears defective. Does not respond properly to mouse and keyboard controls. Unlike any other game I've put on my iMac, there is no available patch after installation, perhaps because the developer, Eidos Hungary apparently closed its doors over a year ago. Similarly, nobody appears at home at Feral Interactive, since they haven't responded to my request for customer support.
Summary: I consider myself entertained by this program. As far as simulation accuracy it's not as good as the old SSI Great Naval Battles series, it's geared for video game action. The battlespace is ridiculously close quarters, how often did a aircraft carrier get into gun range with a battleship? Well in this version of WW2, that can happen. But like I said, it's geared for video game action, and it does that. You don't spend very much time getting to the target.
Summary: Battlestations Pacific covers much of the actual battles experienced in the Pacific Theater during WWII. A must have for both gamers and those how are interested in historical conflicts in the Pacific. A+ for both the PC and Mac!
