Variety has always been Battlefield's defining feature, and drawing out a single facet of play will not be to everyone's taste – but its place on the matchmaking rota is optional. Even with only four levels, the game is a more than generous serving: for less than a quarter of Bad Company's release price, this is the choice cut of its better half – multiplayer. And this is a yet more pacy, extravagant affair, tapping directly into the whims of the player who just wants to cover a plane in det-packs and plough it into an aircraft carrier. Strategy is subordinate to a sense of fun – and you wonder if that's what the series needed all along. A perfectly sized, expertly crafted romp, Pacific gives other download games their marching orders".
