  • Pros: Over thirty planes to master, Skies frantic enough to make Michael Bay puke, Missions book ended with historical facts
  • Cons: You cant always fly your favored plane, Enemies that inexplicably cheat death, Game is as merciful as a POW camp

Heroes of the Pacific Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Heroes of the Pacific is a fairly surprising title, mainly because it has somehow slipped under the radar as one of the better titles slated for a pre-holiday release.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Flight-based Xbox titles aren’t what you’d call ten-a-penny, with only a very few mediocre budget releases being available to satisfy would-be pilots who are more at home with a console controller in their hand than a flight yoke.

  • Excerpt: For some odd reason, there's a surprising shortage of aerial combat games on Xbox, even though the system, its controller and innate online multiplayer capabilities are perfectly suited to them. Hence, it's not too hard for Ubisoft's Heroes of the Pacific to stand-out in such a sparse crowd...

  • Conclusion: Overall Heroes of the Pacific is a good game. The controls take a lot of getting used to but if you can stick through that you’ll have a lot of fun ahead of you. The story mode is very well done and there’s enough planes and upgrades to unlock that you’ll be flying in the skies of the Pacific for a...
  • Pros: Great immersive gameplay, Authentic feel, Loads of planes and upgrades, Great sound.
  • Cons: Controls were hard to get used to, A few missions are unnecessarily tricky, Some of the voice-acting is awful!
