Surface Naval action in the south pacific.
A Long Lance torpedo rips through the hull of your flagship. Huge columns of water from enemy gunfire surround your battleships. It's just another day in Task Force 1942, the first in a new series of spectacular World War II Pacific War simulations from MicroProse.
This is your chance to command a fleet of destroyers, cruisers and battleships against aggressive enemy forces in the South Pacific.
No detail has been overlooked in this painstakingly researched simulation. Your daily routine will include firing torpedoes into enemy vessels. Issuing commands to ships and convoys. And confronting enemy ships head-on in explosive night battles.
Plus, to really boost your confidence, you'll experience frightening torpedo wakes and blinding explosions so realistic you'll need to change uniforms every time you play.

Before I started playing this game I wasn't very interested in it because I thought that the game looked outdated, but little did I know that this game is actually very entertaining. I only have one complaint about this s game; the graphics are very outdated. In my opinion, the pros of this game far outweigh the cons. I can tell that the developer(s) took a lot of time on making a historically accurate game. Another benefit of playing this game is the fact that there is so much game content to explore. In conclusion, this is a fun game that is good for hardcore and casual gamers alike and you should certainly consider buying it.
