Heroes of the Pacific PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Real war normally involves a lot more than a handful of people, and big enemy numbers is something that gaming has been unable to achieve until recent years. Heroes of the Pacific allows us to at least take a glimpse at the war filled skies of the pacific during World War II, whilst there was probably hundreds more blocking out the sun, it’s undoubtedly an impressive sight witnessing up to 150 flying machines on the screen at one time!

  • Excerpt: In 1941 the Japanese attacked the American fleet at Pearl Harbor, and US participation in the Second World War was ensured. Jump in your cockpit and take to the skies in the most in depth recreation of WWII Pacific aerial conflict we’ve yet to see. Taking part in famous battles such as Pearl Harbor, Imo Jima and Leyte, you’ll get a glimpse into the terror, smoke, bullets and bravery that filled the air as the Japanese and Americans really got serious about blowing each...

Heroes of the Pacific

Playstation Illustrated
17 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Heroes of the Pacific is brought to us from flight sim experts Ubisoft ( of IL-2 Sturmovik fame) and the accomplished IR Gurus. This title blends arcade flight elements with historical WWII locations and planes. The PS2 library doesn’t have too many of these games (the Ace Combat series comes to mind), and it’s a welcome addition indeed. Graphically, nothing will blow you away.

  • Excerpt: Arcade style flight sims are a pretty rare breed. The Ace Combat series, Crimson Skies and Weapons over Normandy have been about it in recent years, but Codemasters are having a stab with Heroes of the Pacific. The World War II themed action game brings a lot to the table, with a lengthy single-player campaign and online multiplayer in all three versions, but is it enough to please fans of the genre?

Heroes of the Pacific review

2 February 2006
  • Summary: Heroes of the Pacific isn't going to win over simulation fans, but if you're looking for an easy-to-play World War II flight combat game, and you've got a decent gamepad, give it a shot.
  • Pros: Does air-to-ground combat right, Easy to pick up and play, Decent campaign length, Lots of unlockable planes
  • Cons: Online is dull (and you'll have trouble finding someone to play against), Not much different from other mission-based flight games you've probably played

  • Conclusion: Difficulty, repetition and an overall lack of tact keep the game from being anything more than an average flight game. It's good enough, but there are far better offerings out there.

  • Summary: Wow, it has been donkey’s years since we last played a flight sim game on the Playstation 2, in fact it has been so long we can't actually remember the last one we played! Codemasters have decided to dip there toes in the water with Heroes of the Pacific a WWII flight sim game! Breathe a sigh of relief!
