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

  • 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.
  • 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.

Too many problems with bugs and artificial intelligence sink this promising and ambitious RTS.

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...
  • 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

  • Excerpt: Pacific Storm vous propose d'incarner les Etats-Unis ou le Japon dans la guerre qui les a opposés dans le Pacifique entre 1941 et 1945. Dans un contexte historique fidèlement reproduit, vous allez pouvoir revivre l'histoire du plus grand conflit aéronaval de tous les temps.

Pacific Storm (PC)

Gamesurf
1 August 2007
  • Conclusion: No, non ci siamo. Mischiare RTS, gioco d'azione e strategico richiede mano ferma, nervi saldi e, soprattutto, grandi capacità in ambito di programmazione e sviluppo. Doti che, all'evidenza, mancano quasi del tutto al team Lesta che vorrebbe costringerci, con Pacific Storm, a fare un salto indietro...

  • Conclusion: Riferendoci al lato strategico del gioco preso in esame, Hearts of Iron: Doomsday (che si svolge sempre in tempo reale) e Operational Art of War (tipico war game a turni con mappa a esagoni) possono regalare una profondità storica ben più apprezzabile.
  • Pros: La cura riservata la comparto aeronautico, La presenza di numerose tecnologie e edifici
  • Cons: Parte strategica complicatissima, Sezioni di combattimento aereo limitative, Alcune battaglie storiche sono praticamente perse/vinte in partenza, Comparto grafico impresentabile

Test : Pacific Storm 2

GameHope
4 June 2007
  • 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. Ca promet…
  • 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

Pacific Storm 2

Tom's Games
30 May 2007
  • Summary: Six mois que Pacific Storm est sorti sous nos latitudes et voici déjà venir la suite ! Du contenu supplémentaire, de nouvelles fonctionnalités et différentes optimisations sont-ils suffisants pour justifier un nouvel investissement ?
  • Pros: Mélange des genres intéressant, Mode gestion / stratégie prenant, Contenu très riche
  • Cons: Ergonomie complètement à revoir, Didacticiels pénibles, Mode multijoueur incomplet, Réalisation technique sommaire
