May 12, 2009 - Good - [Battlestations: Pacific is] an often clumsy and over-ambitious enterprise, one that can wow you with a pirouette and then slip over on a banana skin in the same mission, but the pleasures it does offer are enhanced by the knowledge that it's still the only game offering them.
May 12, 2009 - Good - It might not be the WWII game to end all WWII games, but Battlestations: Pacific manages to strike a great balance between intense action and real-time strategy, and gives players a much broader and expansive view of a war that we are so used to seeing through the eyes of individual soldiers on the ground.
May 27, 2009 - Good - While the core gameplay and presentation do little to set Battlestations: Pacific apart from its predecessor, the blending of two genres and high replayability make this entry in the series a solid choice for anyone interested in WWII.
May 13, 2009 - Good - Although not without its problems, this is a sequel done right: It's just as fun, but it's bigger, broader, and more fully realized.

May 13, 2009 - Good - For those looking for a flying game (primarily) that's just about fun, but that also has more depth than, say, HAWX, Battlestations: Pacific is a decent bet.
May 14, 2009 - Good - Battlestations: Pacific improves upon almost every facet of the original, offering more of just about everything. With only a few nagging issues holding it back, it's a more-than-worthy way to satisfy your tactical itch.
May 19, 2009 - Good - If you're a World War II fan who's tired of the endless string of shooters or you feel that you've seen Normandy Beach one too many times, then you might want to check this distinctive and engaging World War II game out.
May 12, 2009 - Good - If you're prepared to push through its choppier moments, you'll find a rich and highly enjoyable game that should keep you occupied for months.

May 20, 2009 - Mediocre - In the end, Battlestations: Pacific is a game you'll likely want to demo before you commit to a purchase. While some will definitely enjoy the sandbox nature of the game and the variety of units it provides, others might be put off by the arcadey gameplay and simplistic strategy.
