Battlestations: Pacific is a deep game that only reveals its true nature after extended play. But, as each layer of intricate strategy, great graphics considering its scale and explosive action becomes evident, it's one that, like its predecessor, is destined to grow on the diligent but die hopelessly on the ADD crowd. Battlestations: Midway was given an incredibly unfair battering at its time of release; some would say that that's entirely its own fault. Whoever is to blame, it's nice to finally be able to highlight what a great series this is. All you need do is relax, read, understand and, most of all, persevere.
