Complet, sans être trop compliqué, ce jeu permet de combiner agréablement stratégie navale, terrestre et aérienne.
World War II in the South Pacific—a
logistician's dream (or nightmare!). Complex
and interesting, but it attempted to accomplish
more than it could deliver. Recommended
only to those with a specific interest in the
period. For a better treatment, cf. War in the
Pacific by the same designer.
WITSP is a good simulation, which I expect
from Grigsby and SSI, but it is not an easy
game to learn. Part of this is due to its complexity
but I also fault the manual for not having any kind
of tutorial or example of play. Even the inclusion
of a few simple charts such as the two I've included
here would make it much easier for a beginner to understand the relative strength and position
of the forces. Sure, you can compile a similar
chart in 15 or 20 minutes (once you know what
you're looking for and learn the menus), but that
takes hours of study. Anyone trying to learn WITSP
deserves more help than they get.
