DescriptionThe sequel to Microsoft's first Combat Flight Simulator, the focus shifts to the Pacific theater, where carrier battles and island hopping dominate the strategy.
Fly for the Japanese Navy or the American Navy/Airforce in either single battles or branching campaigns. Controllable aircraft include the standard Zero, the P-38, Wildcat, Hellcat, Corsair, and George, each fighter representing different design philosophies from the most nimble Japanese planes to the powerhouse American designs. Escort bombers, strafe transports, and provide CAP for your carrier group. Learn how to successfully land on a carrier in strong winds.
Featuring much of the realism and potential complexity (it can be simplified through options) of Microsoft's civilian simulator, you can either play in an arcade-like mode, or increase the difficulty...to the point where you're following a fairly realistic checklist for take-off.
Featuring unique 1940's art for cutscenes, the engine's graphics attempt to represent the relatively sparse terrain of ocean, beach, and jungle with some detail. Models take visual damage and damage can result in the removal of the damaged part altogether. Standard padlock and various target views are available, allowing both a realistic look and the ability to achieve more exciting, cinematic views.

- While the game only allow you to fly the fighters, there are custom "hacks" that allow you to fly the dive bombers and the torpedo bombers for either side at the various fan sites.
- From summer 2001, add on packs from the fan sites such as www.simviation.com which allow you to load in European aircraft and scenery. This effectively makes an upgrade to the original Combat Flight Sim.
