  1. Made by the same people that gave us Atlantic Fleet...

    1942: The world is at war
    The Japanese Empire expands throughout the Pacific where Allied forces attempt to halt its spread. A desperate struggle for control of the Solomon Islands is now underway.

    How will you protect your transports as they deliver troops and supplies in the South Pacific? Will you deploy precious aircraft carriers to provide air cover? Do you screen the area with submarines? Or attempt to lure the enemy navy into a decisive surface engagement?

    Major Features:
    Real time naval combat
    Theatrical external-view game play
    Play as Allied Forces or Imperial Japan
    Over 50 classes of playable ships
    Dynamic campaign
    Tactical control of aircraft (not a flight simulator)
    Fight fires, counter flood compartments and repair ships
    Sink ships using realistic buoyancy physics
    Historical missions based on actual naval engagements

    Both are excellent. I have to say I found The Pacific to be wrenching to watch. It is grim in a way that Band of Brothers wasn't. After watching I couldn't go straight to bed, had to do something else, read a book or something, or I would have nightmares. Not to say its bad, just to say that the tone and feeling are something you should be prepared for.

     

    I have watched both series before, I also have them on dvd... should have said that in my post.

    Both I found to be very gritty and just about as realistic as you can get when sitting in front of a tv screen.

     

    Can't say I found the Pacific worrying in any way, highly enjoyable though and I would encourage anyone who hasn't watched both titles to do so as they are first class.

    I am extremely disappointed by the lack of attention shown to this thread of late. How are we to get our Friday fix without any wolololoing?

     

    We are self isolating from wolololoing... we don't want anyone else infected!
