Great Naval Battle Gameminoru09 | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all minoru09's reviews »
This is one of the most under appreciated game. This game is an unique combination of real time strategy and action, sets in Pacific Theater of WWII. You can literally control every single unit you have: the ships, submarines, or planes. Those three choices offer different playstyle which all of them is important in turning the tide of battle. For all-in-one game with cinematic storyline and addictive gameplay, the price $1.74 is almost too good to be true. Buy it if you like naval battles and/or WWII Pacific Theater.
Great strategy and simulation game at once.WetCouch | Sept. 14, 2014 | See all WetCouch's reviews »
Great game. It starts like a normal simulation game, but while completing next missions you will get access to new units, and start to command all huge fleets like in strategy game.Like "from zero to hero", here it is "from small boat to fleet". Both modes are refined, and. Campaign gives fun to player, but i think it doesn't really make sense. But in this game the story is only a background. Gameplay is at some precent historic. I also don't see here any huge mistakes from the developer side beside of one - at later missions, when you have under your command more units, there isn't really much time to enjoy playing single units.
In one word - two modes, multiple vehicles, nice battles, much fun. I recommend it.
A pretty good WWII gameRyannHUNN | Sept. 13, 2014 | See all RyannHUNN's reviews »
Nice mix of strategy and combat. You can control planes, ships and even submarine. It's cool that the game is based on really battles of WWII. Also the are challenges which can be really hard but it extends the game.
The graphics and the cut-scenes are decent, but the gameplay is really addictive I liked it, but it can be slow sometimes.
Overall I recommend it if you like these kind of games, if you don't give it a try! The game is cheap and it worths the money!
