So the 70 dollar question is whether or not this game is worth it. If you have even the slightest interest in the Pacific Theater, wargames, strategy games, or history, you should check out War in The Pacific. If you are more action oriented and phased by complex games, steer far away. However, since you’re looking at this wargame review in the first place, I’m sure you don’t fall under that category, right?
This title is essentially an MMO game for
war gamers. Not in the
online sense, but simply because it lends
itself to complete immersion on a time-sink scale similar to EverQuest’s. To dismiss it as an impenetrable chore is to miss the point. The $70 price tag is a clear warning sign: Casual players need not apply. For war gamers. the game requires total commitment. If you invest enough, you’ll be amply rewarded.
