Summary: The game is great, but when it said that this product came with box and instructions, I was expecting original box art and booklet, not a generic DVD cover and instructions printed on white paper. I paid a premium for this item because I believed I was getting the game and its real packaging. What a bummer.
Summary: First off i think the graphics are good, but the down side is it takes a long time to build ships and your alies suck they alway lose only if there british you know but so and so its a good game.
Summary: PTO IV has excellent graphics and animation -- it's more like watching a war movie than playing a video game. But the AI is ridiculously bad. This game is about as challenging as clipping your fingernails, and that goes for both the strategic and tactical phases. The way the game works is, you control the naval forces of one major combatant during WWII (US, UK, Germany, or Japan).
Summary: Some reviews remind me of the phrase, "Those of you who think you know what you're talking about are annoying those of us who do" when it comes to PTO IV. Pacific Theater of Operations IV follows in the line of Koei's underpublised but successful title series of World War Two combat at sea. If I was to be in solitary confinement for six months, and could have just one video game, PTO IV would be it.
Summary: I liked this game because I got to control the ships. If you are looking for a game that you comand the navy this is it. It's pritty easy, and doesn't have the best graphics, but you get to here poeple yelling, and ships blowing up. I would recommend you rent it before you buy it.
Summary: This game is sorry you do not do any thing but sit there and move fleets of ships and sit there and watch your ships get sunk during raids. This game is not even worth a -5 stars I put one because that is the worst i could put. I hope this helps u to make your mind.
Summary: This seems to be a game that people either love or hate. Is it as good as PTO II? Not even close. The main reason is the lack of ground forces. This takes away a LOT of strategy and options in the game. Also the music dosen't do much for the game like it did in PTO II. Also, the AI is seems to be much weaker than in PTO II, but it can still be a lot of fun if you're willing to look past these things.
