" if you are a war fanatic, as some of us war gamers tend to be, then you will obviously lap up the new features and get a lot more value out of the game." - Strategyinformer.com
The long-awaited sequel to Pacific Storm; Pacific Storm: Allies expands upon the success of the internationally acclaimed original to deliver an unforgettable mix of real-time strategy and blistering arcade combat, recreating World War II's most heated battles.
Experience large-scale naval and air operations of the Pacific as either the United States, Imperial Japan, or new playable nation - the UK. Marvel at the enhanced 3D visual engine complete with detailed damage modeling. Settle disputes via diplomacy or battle. Or assume direct control over stunningly-rendered ships and planes to personally annihilate your adversaries. From the US to USSR, Germany to Japan, new missions, tactical maneuvers and multiplayer modes offer armchair admirals greater excitement than ever.
Whether you chart the conflict's progress from a strategic level or man a deck gun or get behind the controls of a fighter or bomber and personally take the fight to your foes, seize the day and rewrite history of some the most intense battles of World War II!
Engrossing World War II Action and Strategy:
Diplomats, strategists and fighter jocks will all have a place in the game; seize the day from behind a deck gun, in a plane's cockpit, or as an admiral in the fleet's strategic planning room.
Play as the United States, Japan, and now as Great Britain. Ally with the AI-controlled Soviet Union, Holland or Germany, using updated diplomacy features.
A massive assortment of historically-based units:
Employ bombers, fighters, submarines, battleships, aircraft carriers and other power hitters of the Second World War. Go beyond the Pacific Theater and even command the Bismarck or HMS Hood.
An updated 3D graphics engine beautifully renders units, including detailed damage modeling and persistent combat effects.
Master grand strategy, new technology development or in-your-face combat with a newly updated control scheme that streamlines everything from resource management to dog-fighting.
Play head-to-head in action-oriented dogfights, join in cooperative mode with friends, or play competitively against the AI and online opponents to succeed in historical missions or massive theater-wide campaigns.
Amazing ideas, not-so-good executiontommy5000 | March 10, 2013 | See all tommy5000's reviews »
This game is fun and a recommended piece/ addon after playing the previous game, without the allies, factions. This game is 10X better then before with the addition of the german's, the russians, the french, and a few others, in the campaign you can play the british, the japanese and the americans
However, the game has some serious technical issues which make it completely unplayable. The most frustrating is that the longer I play the slower and slower the game runs. In the beginning of a campaign, around 1939, it runs crisply and smoothly, but with every unit you create and every convoy or fleet that moves across the map it slows to a crawl and becomes choppy and absolutly impossible to negotiate. Even the mouse doesn't move smoothly, jumping from place to place on the screen.
