Heroes of the Pacific

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • 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. With gads of planes and missions, a moving story mode, and total multiplayer functionality, Heroes of the Pacific sets it apart from the competition and puts this into the “worth owning” category.

  • Summary: Heroes of the Pacific might be up your alley if you really love the history of World War II but you are getting tired of all the World War II shooters out there. I would definitely try before you buy, but who knows? You might find something that you are extremely addicted to with this aerial dog fighting WWII arena.
  • Pros: Great style in the menus, good campaign
  • Cons: Can get boring at times, feels to basic

  • 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. Now though, those who have seen more vertigo than U2 can fire up some World War II action, and battle to reign supreme in the air over the Japanese ‘ starting with a little light training, before moving on – as you probably could have guessed,...

  • 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 are enough planes and upgrades to unlock that you’ll be flying in the skies of the Pacific for a while to come…
  • Pros: Great immersive gameplay, Excellent presentation, 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

  • Conclusion: Heroes of the Pacific bietet wirklich spannende und abwechslungsreiche Flugaction. Die Atmosphäre des Spiels ist sehr dicht, außerdem ist die Auswahl an Flugzeugen wirklich reichhaltig und die Grafik weiß zu überzeugen. Leider sind die Missionen aber manchmal etwas zu hektisch und dadurch frustig.
