Aces of the Pacific, part of the Great Warplanes Series, is the follow up flight combat simulation to Dynamix's successful Red Baron. The game comes packed with options for the fledgling fighter pilot, including a mission builder, mission training mode, historical missions, and dog fighting to name a few. More than thirty authentic aircraft make their appearance in Aces of the Pacific, including Japanese and American craft (you can choose to fly as either). Each plane is detailed to incorporate unique handling abilities in maneuvering and combat. Career (campaign) mode or single mission flights are optional. Training missions (as well as regular missions) include Aerial Gunnery, Dive and Torpedo Bombing runs, and carrier landings, ground attacks, escort missions, and intercept missions and more. Animated cinematic sequences handle medal presentations, and printed newspaper headlines and articles detailing progress. Aces of the Pacific features multiple plane dogfights and squadron attacks as well as solo raids. Included is a detailed and comprehensive manual that provides background and historical recaps of the major Pacific Theater encounters, along with flight characteristics and notes on all available aircraft used in the game. ~ Michael L.
