the marine side of things are lovely, its the aviation side of things that look a little bit off. Shall keep an eye on this though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

"This tactical action game allows up to 16 players to recreate the naval and aerial battles that took place on the Pacific in 1942."

Hmmm... doesn't sound like it will be anything for me.

That image says render to me. The background is very flat...

And notice that the aircraft carrier, in this arcade game, has not a pre-war livery http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You guys are funny. You haven't even played the game or read one review of its flight or damage modelling or know anything about it at all and already you are calling it an arcade game just because it allows you to steer ships in addition to planes.

Guys, Midway: Battle of the Pacific is NOT, I repeat NOT a flight sim!!!

It is a tactical naval sim with some flyable aircraft. That's it.

Rate it according to what it's supposed to do.

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!

The DD I believe is supposed to be a Fletcher Class, but the fore of the superstructure should mount dual Bofors mounts not single Oerlikon's..

Actually the Fletchers as completed had single 20s fore of the superstructure.

Those look like renders, not in-game screenshots.

Great lookng ships. The DD looks right for a square bridge Fletcher of that period, however the Large (peacetime) number is not. A number that low for a DD would probably not belong to any Fletcher. Being some 4000 miles from the appropriate reference (at home) I cann'a quote what DD should bear the name asociated with that number. Off hand a number in the mid 300-mid 400's would be more likely. Later in the war twin 40's might have been found midships and one of the banks of tubes possibly landed to reduce growing topweight.

Nice water!

Snootles, an earlier post was correct. The later square bridge Fletchers did indeed have the two gun tubs with twin Bofers. I'm typing this whlile looking at my three foot long model of the square bridge Melvin, DD 680, and it does have the twin Bofers on each side of the forward superstructure. That said, I also suspect the numbering is incorreect (too low) for that type, but haven't bothered to check. All the best, LongHorn

Just did a little search.

Fletcher Class DD's carried the hull numbers 445 though 804.

First one launched 3 May "42
Last one launched 6 June 44

Fletcher Class DD's would not have been available for Midway Ops's.

The Hull Number 182 would have been for a Wickes Class DD Built in around 1918.

DD182 Thomas Launched 4 July 1918, went to Royal Navy in 1940.

I agree, but wouldn't it be named something more along the lines of "War in the pacific?"

another comment on steering ships and such - I have devoted most of my time learning to fly the planes, If you have to babysit the ship and worry about your next flight, you got a 24/7 ingame job there, this steering the ship stuff is new to me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Plus if there are going to be naval battles, I wanna be up there torpedobombing those guys, not standing behind some fixed dumb gun

Hehe you have that model too? I've decked mine out in the numbers and colour of DD-670, the U.S.S. Dortch, because my grandfather was RADAR operator on it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/sonar.gif He's certainly got some stories, the Dortch was hit by a kamakazi off Okinawa but was able to limp home for repairs. He used to tell me about standing on the aft deck near the stern 5-incher and watching the rooster tail thrown up by the ship. The captain would run her at flank than quickly throw it full astern so that the rooster tail came crashing over the back end of the deck, soaking whoever was watching. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif
