Carrier Strike: South Pacific 1942-44

Moby ID: 3001

Description official descriptions

Carrier Strike simulates naval-air battles in the South Pacific during WWII. Carrier Strike can be used to recreate historical battles or random-historical battles (battles that could have happened at a particular time). The Campaign Game allows you to complete one battle and jump immediately into a new battle. Ships sunk or badly damaged in one battle will be unavailable for the next battle. The Campaign Game allows one battle per month from May 1942 to June 1944.

In Carrier Strike you issue movement orders to friendly task forces (TF's) and direct the Flight Operations on your carriers. Flight operations consist of selecting ordnance for bombers; moving aircraft from the hangar to the flight deck; launching aircraft on CAP, search and strike missions; and selecting or changing strike targets.

Accurate to how carrier operations were carried out.

The Good
I liked the accuracy of the game as far as carrier tactics and air operations. Damage to ships with the weapons available seemed good.

The Bad
The surface warfare aspect could have been better, but then it is a carrier game.

The Bottom Line
Very good for overall carrier tactics. good ideas on how difficult it was to find and attack the opposing forces, brought out the importance of good recon.
