Pacific Skies offers even more addictive simplicity known from the original Ace Patrol. This time we get some new missions and slightly modified graphics. Good game for those who like to click without much thought. Unfortunately, some hardware has a problem saving the game when the file contains unsupported characters which is annoying.
They tried to pull a new theme onto the original, and it suffered from it a little. Only 2 nation pumped up to 4 party, the same animations for much faster planes, not the best. The only big change was the lack of repair between missions in a battle. That was challenging. Sometimes even frustrating. But it is still a fun little game that you should try if ever on sale.
Much like the first game in this series, and similar to other Sid Meier games, Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies is a turn based strategy game. Both Ace Patrol games are easy to learn and do not require a huge learning curve. The mechanics are fairly basic, yet can get very challenging as you progress through the levels. The gameplay is very fun and offers a different set of missions from the first title in the series keeping this game fresh. The graphics, like the original Ace Patrol are somewhat "cartoonish" and may seem a little bit outdated. However, keeping in mind that it is a turn based strategy game, the environment and details are not among the most important aspects of a game such as this. I found this series to be very fun, especially if you are looking for a strategy or flight game to just jump straight into without having to learn too much. It is definitely worth the price, especially if you pick it up on a sale, when you can get both titles very cheap with a great amount of content between the both of them.
Ace Patrol : Pacific Skies is one of the most fun games I played that involved Planes and Tactics and Yes it's the only one I ever played (except part 1)! The combat reminds me of a normall tactics games but the skills u can put on each plane makes every plane unique and add it's own value to the battle a must have for people that like simplistic mechanics and hard to master tactic games. Personally I enjoyed Ace Patrol more but maybe that's because the newness of the game was already gone because I knew the basic mechanics 68 out of 100 -Sam0Kramer
A casual strategy game? Seems like that combination can work afterall. I won't presume to be able to analyze the game and explain why and how, but what I can say with confidence, is that I'm having fun with this game, just like the first, and probably more! Definitely worth the $5 price tag.
