1942: The Pacific Air War

From December of 1941 through the end of the World War, the combined forces of Japan fought the armed forces of the United States of America over a broad stretch of ocean peppered with islands. This was the Pacific campaign, one of the bloodiest, toughest-fought campaigns in all of recorded history. Though all of the forces involved were essential parts of the eventual outcome, naval aviation played a special part. The carrier forces of both sides proved their worth time and again.
The idea behind 1942 THE PACIFIC AIR WAR is to re-create some of the adventure of that time and place and give you a chance to take part in it. To succeed, you have to avoid that oil- and blood-soaked, fire-on-water grave long enough to be of service to your country or your Emperor. As a commanding admiral of the navy, a crack fighter pilot, or just an anonymous Joe tail gunner, you are going to fight for recognition and just plain survival. The Japanese are moving south and east like a steamroller, trying to take control of the Pacific. The Americans are fighting back, desperately hoping to drain the strength from the Japanese juggernaut.

  11/22/2011 1:24:00 AM - Tim This is a great game because there's a built-in strategy game as well as a flight simulation. You can stay on the strategy map, without entering the flight sim mode, and fight carrier battles, launch airstrikes, and send surface ships into battle. Refight the battles of Coral Sea, Midway, Eastern Solomons, Santa Cruz, and Philippine Sea.
