Unfortunately, The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific is an FPS that not only fails to inspire or redefine the genre, but it also misses the mark of mediocrity. This is an extremely substandard game, through and through, and it's almost a shame that it had to follow such a great series of acts. Set in the now entirely overused backdrop of World War II, Battle for the Pacific attempts to recreate certain segments of the Pacific Campaign including the legendary Battle of Iwo Jima. However, its lackluster presentation, poor controls, abundance of AI glitches and forgettable narrative make this an FPS game you may want to skip.
Overall score: 4.5/10
