TeamXbox writes: "As a video-game genre, World War II seems to have gotten very tired. Some good games that mine the history of that conflict for inspiration are still coming out, such as Call of Duty: World at War, but in general the conflict has been played out. Or has it?
Battlestations: Pacific, like its predecessor Battlestations: Midway tells a different type of story than the Call of Duty's and Medal of Honor's of the world. The war is not just a setting for first-person shooter combat. Rather, the Battlestations games are designed very specifically to portray a unique theater of the war and depict a type of warfare that really only existed like that for one brief period."
