Summary: A good game, lives up to teh other naval games by Koei well enough, however, the controls are a little awkward and, I wish there was a little more open variety with the creating new units tools but, for the period the game was created in, it is good; however, be prepared for a long game, it isn't...
Summary: Being a history junkie and someone who loved PTO2, I was really looking forward to this game when I heard about it. Starting off, I love the fact you can change a nation's side from Axis to Allies.
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.
Summary: As a big fan of Koei games, and a stratigic game player, I thought PTO 4 would be right up my alley. I played the first one back when it was on the SNES, so I expected it to be similar. It wasn't. But sometimes, that's a good thing. However, in this case, it wasn't.
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.
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.
Summary: I'm not going to make this a total rant, I just need to rant Ethan Allen a little bit then I can get on with the review. First off, the entire point of the game is naval combat, only naval combat. SO WHAT IN THE HELL WOULD POSSESS YOU TO SAY WHY AREN'T THERE GROUND FORCES.
