Dont Neglect the Classics

Game Debate
8 May 2010
  • Excerpt: "Storm Over The Pacific" is a classic hex-based wargame covering an area of WWII which has not had the game coverage that it deserved. The European Theatre of Operations is relatively familiar to most players, had the benefit of large set-piece armies and battles, discernable front lines, and of course a huge, burgeoning Russian gaming industry popularising the "Great Patriotic War".

Test Pacific Storm 2

Generation NT
27 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Malgré quelques nouveautés, vous l'aurez compris, Pacific Storm 2 n'apporte pas vraiment le renouveau dans ce style de jeu. N'ayant, en majorité, apporté que quelques unités supplémentaires, le titre de volume 2 est un peu exagéré. Le titre est plus proche de l'add-on que de la suite. Réservé à un public particulier, Pacific Storm 2 ne ravira que les amoureux purs et durs du mélange Startégie/Wargame.
  • Pros: Monde multijoueur
  • Cons: Aucune originalité dans le scénario, Peu de nouveautés, Graphismes vieillots

PC Review - 'Pacific Storm'

WorthPlaying
9 January 2008
  • Summary: The furious battle of Pearl Harbor became the first in the sequence of gory sea combats. Now you can take part in all major Pacific battles of the World War II in the Pacific Storm game that is a mixture of RTS, war-game and simulator.

Pacific Storm

Auracore MediaWorks
8 February 2007
  • Summary: A game that's only for those seriously devoted to the strategy genre.
  • Pros: Good strategic gameplay; getting to play a seldom-seen side of the war; three styles of play.
  • Cons: Poor sound; peculiar AI choices; gimmicky simulation mechanic; exceedingly poor interface; overwhelming for those not used to micromanagement.

Pacific Storm

GAMESQUAD
16 December 2006
  • Conclusion: Pacific Storm is that most frustrating of games, one where all the requisite components are present but key mistakes ruins the whole. The pace of the strategic game is wrong, balance between micromanagement and player activity is uneven, and localization is regrettable. Furthermore, only the most devoted Pacific War player will find the strategic game tolerable with the tactical level game being nice but not worth the retail price.
  • Pros: Solid strategic game; nice graphics; good replay value.
  • Cons: Some stability issues; speed options need work; difficult to accomplish some tasks; tactically inept AI; too much micromanagement.

Expert Review

GameSpot
16 October 2006
  • Summary: One thing's for sure--Pacific Storm is not for the faint of heart. Although Russian developer Lesta Studio and its North American publishing partner CDV are billing the game as a real-time take on the Pacific theater of World War II, it actually has a lot more in common with hardcore war sims like Hearts of Iron than an RTS in the tradition of Command & Conquer.
  • Pros: Wide scope with lots of options, Good, basic RTS action with a strong historical flavor
  • Cons: Scope is so wide that the game is unwieldy, Too much micromanagement in campaign play, Loads of bugs, Dated visuals and sound

Pacific Storm Review

GamerNode
29 September 2006
  • Excerpt: There are a few RTS titles coming out these days which seem to be a mixture of traditional RTS gameplay and other genres. For example, 2003′s Savage: The Battle for Newerth managed to incorporate both RTS and FPS elements into one game. Sadly, it’s not very often a game comes along which mixes genres, and manages to do it well.

  • Excerpt: Der Pazifische Ozean 1940: Die Spannungen zwischen den Japanern und den Amerikanern sind nicht zu übersehen und doch gibt es offiziell keinen Krieg. Teil für Teil fallen Inseln und Gebiete unter japanische Kontrolle. In diesem Szenario übernimmt der Spieler in 'Pacific Storm' den Oberbefehl entweder der japanischen Streitkräfte oder versucht, eine Ausbreitung der Japaner als Oberbefehlshaber der Amerikaner zu verhindern – in einer umfangreichen Mischung aus Strategie-...
  • Pros: sehr detailliertes Management, unzählige Möglichkeiten zur Lösung, detailgetreue Einheiten, über 100 erforschbare Gegenstände und Upgrades
  • Cons: für Einsteiger nur bedingt geeignet, nervige Voice-overs bei Einheiten, sehr knackiger Schwierigkeitsgrad, kein Multiplayer

Trockener Feldzug

  • Excerpt: Über mangelnden Nachschub an neuen Spielen können sich die Fans von Strategiespielen in der jüngsten Vergangenheit wahrlich nicht beschweren. Jetzt gibt es mit Storm over the Pacific einen weiteren Vertreter dieses Genres, der um die Gunst der Käufer buhlt – mit fast schon „altertümlichen" Mitteln. Hexfelder, rundenbasierte Spielzüge und der Zweite Weltkrieg als Szenario. Macht das heutzutage überhaupt noch Spaß?
  • Pros: enormer Tiefgang, große Auswahl an Nationen, taktisch interessante Gefechte, Editor für eigene Karten
  • Cons: wenig hilfreiches Tutorial, steile Lernkurve, magere Präsentation, sperrige Handhabung

Test : Pacific Storm 2

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Après le pas trop mauvais Pacific Storm sorti il y a neuf mois environ, voici le deuxième volet de la probable longue série. Il ne s’agit cependant pas d’une suite puisque le jeu reprend les bases du premier volet en améliorant le tout.
  • Pros: Une bonne durée de vie, Il y a de l'idée
  • Cons: Interface mal pensée, Maniabilité à revoir, Incomplet, Lassant, N'offre rien de nouveaux, Idées mal exploitées
