I know this is probably rubbish. The site might while away a few minutes though. I think it's mainly a strategy game with some limited playability (as a sim/game).

Its actually a very fun game. It does not try to be anything but that. Simhq had a nice little review on it, I would check that out if your at all interested in the game.

It's nice to see crew on the ships, they look too empty to me in FB.

yea but again it seams more like a fun arcade game than realism.

i mean. instead of a real american battleship its a british one king george V. thats wrong. it even says american fleet just above.

flying part is probably bettter in Il2
submarine part is probably better in Silent hunter 4
dunno about battleship

If someone could take those models, effects and graphics and put them in a sim type game that would be awesome. Some of these new games coming out have got me excited about SoW. Every part of games is getting better and better. Can't wait for SoW!
After playing IL2 I find it hard to play many games that are scripted of have small worlds to them. I love the fact I can play an Il2 mission 100 times and it is always different.

Its quite good actually. You can flick and control any plane/Ship/Sub you want. You can also move them about the map using point and click.

Its just that its far too short.

You get to midway after 11 missions and then it abruptly ends http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I bought it and exchanged it for Supreme Commander 4 days later.

ANother new game - 'Pacific Storm' is a similar approach to BS:Midway, but its very buggy and much more ambitious and complex.

Everybody knows that KGV is the only US battleship you need. Just like PF!

As I said, I think it's a strategy game. But you have the benefit that you can jump right into the game.

I read a review of it in a newspaper. They gave it a '3' out of apossible 5 points. They also said it was good, but just too short a game.

I have the free dowwnloadable demo.I play online on the pc.

It is by no means a sim.

It is a lot of fun to play.you can man the ships,or the subs,or the planes.(external type view though).There is some strategy involved as you can control what the rest of the fleet/planes are doing while you are controlling one item.On the ships you can fire the big guns,fire the AA(at incoming planes)or drop depth charges on the subs.Some ships also have torpedoes that you can fire at other surface ships.The planes can take off from laand(Japanese) or from the carriers(US).The elevator animation on the carriers looks good.The ships also have damage control and you can assign people to the different repairs needed.The planes have guns or torpedoes or bombs.

I play with a buddy of mine 1 vs 1 and it does get a little complicated with all the stuff to control and tell what to go where.However in an online 4 vs 4 it is not so complicated.There is an ingame text chat so you can coordinate with teammates.

I would recommend downloading the demo to anyone who is looking for just a fun diversion.

Joined the ranks. Gruddamn fun! I personally express my hate to modern videogames having instant play mode and v e r y historical ship models. Like having those model ships on a living room carpet like I did. Grud I miss Microprose's Task Force 1942 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
