Conclusion: Still, this is an accomplished strategy title on whichever format you decide to play it on. The attention to detail is to be applauded and the wealth of options on offer is at once bewildering and admirable. We just wish that we had the attention span, wherewithal and patience to fully appreciate what Eidos Hungary has achieved with Battlestations: Pacific. As it stands though, the intricacies and complexities of the game are sadly lost on us.
Excerpt: For those interested in World War II vehicles, Battlestations: Pacific is amongst the most comprehensive in the range of vehicles it allows you to take charge of, there’s over 100 meticulously detailed planes and boats featured in the game. It’s fairly rare to have such an impressive volume of war machines available in one game, but that’s not the only aspect of Battlestations: Pacific that is unique.
Excerpt: Battlestations Midway was a rather unusual hybrid of a game, a mix of real-time strategy and lightweight military simulation. It let you pilot a wide variety of aircraft, ships and submarines as part of a campaign that culminated in the pivotal Battle of Midway - one of the most important conflicts of WW2's Pacific Theatre. Despite the odd flaw it was thoroughly enjoyable stuff, earning a respectable score of 8 in our review .
Conclusion: Dont let this game go any longer out of any war heros collection of great games.. Hit me up if you want to challenge your skills against a pro or just would like to have fun and get achievements. Hit me up... open to any games and even help. Quote.

A Controversial Look Into World War II That Ends Up Being A Bore
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Command naval and aviation fleets to dominate the high seas in WWII
Graphics: Bland textures, unimpressive destruction, and an ugly HUD
Sound: A lost opportunity. Even the strategy title Empire: Total War has better open seas sound in its battles
Playability: Planes fly well, but ships move too slowly and submarines handle poorly
Entertainment: The lackluster action won't impress anyone but die-hard naval buffs
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is rated "Teen" primarily for its portrayal of violence -- it's a World War II fighting game. Players can shoot down planes, destroy ships, pummel tanks, but most of this combat happens from far away, not closeup. There is some mild bad language, some pictures of pin-up girls, and smoking references.
Excerpt: Battlestations: Pacific is certainly an ambitious game. It combines elements of real-time strategy gaming with the control-everything style of action gameplay of the Battlefield games in large-scale battles between the Imperial Japanese Navy and US Navy. When it works, it really works, providing some intense and enjoyable gameplay. The problem is, it doesn't always work, and those times of gaming joy are tempered with too many frustrating moments.
Summary: If you want to simulate the intensity of Battlestations' open seas combat, go to an old folk's home and watch the old women run into each other with their walkers; these WWII duels are confused, plodding affairs. While the aerial action is faster, the controls are still a mess. The game delivers some interesting moments, like when you're forced to fly through a barrage of explosive cannon fire, but most of the game makes WWII look like a series of anticlimactic...
