It sucks because it won't work on computers built for the U.S.
7 August 2011
Summary: What experience? I can't get the damn thing to start because it comes from England and they never make anything easy. I thought it would be enough to have any windows computer but, now the game says I need a Direct 9X software in my computer to make this game work for me. I have asked for the software and get stared at like I'm some nut from another planet. I probably would have been better off getting it for Playstation 2 system instead of my computer.
Summary: This game is by no means a simulator, at all. The realism is marginal, if that; The commanders talk over the radio as if they were at a social gathering, and they talk to their subordinates like a father disciplining a child. It's even worse for the pilots, who contact eachother using such terms as "Bomber boys" and "fighters" while reprimanding eachother for missing the intended/bonus target. REALLY? did they do ANY research in how the military interacts?
Summary: Maybe I just suck @ the controller scheme, but it's diffciult to control your planes in this game. Overall, just plain boring. The dialogue is bland, the action is weak, & the graphics (NOT the most important thing in a video game of course) are all just nails in the coffin. Don't waste your money. If you have GameFly, rent it 1st.
Summary: This game loses its gaming history on a regular basis returning you to rank 1 with no unlocks. This has happened to me twice and to numerous others that I have played Battlestations: Pacific with online. I have never had this problem with any other game. It is incredibly frustrating to have put a lot of time and effort into ranking up only to have it lost (It is also very tough to compete online without the unlocks).
Summary: The graphics where sad, and the control of the game is difficult too figure out. I bought it without a book, so it took a while too figure it out. But this game couldn't hold my interest long enough if I had 10 books. I'm 46 yrs old and remember playing the quarter arcades in high school, and having more fun. I guess I will have too wait awhile for a good game too come out in this field. I don't get on the net. I was playing solo. I thought this game sucked.
Summary: This game may have been great about ten years ago but times have changed. Games have gotten better with ease of operation and excitement. This is dull and somewhat complicated to control. Of course I'm a Halo fan and I use Halo as my standard. This is just my opinion of course.
Summary: after playing battlestations midway i was excited to play this game,i found they totally changed this game from the first one,they even changed the controls from the first one too.the map is different too you cant zoom in as far as you can on the first one so you really cant see everything to well.i actually prefer the demo on battlestations midway the first one to the game because the game levels are different from the actual demo.anyways this game was a huge...

Summary: The single player campaign is much improved over Midway's. Flying is quite fun. If you primarily stick to single player, are not a Gold member on Xbox Live, and enjoy military themed, esp. navy, games then you'll like this. However, the game fails in the online multiplayer arena. The first game, Battlestations: Midway, captivated fans for over 2 years with its depth, challenge, multitude of strategies and tactics, and emphasis on teamwork.
