Air Conflicts Pacific Carriers

Maximum Games (MG) has announced the arrival of Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, a new arcade-style flight simulation available exclusively on PlayStation® 3 today, and later this month on PlayStation® Network. The game is centered on events that took place during World War II, featuring the aircraft and ships of the period, and historically inspired missions. Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers is available now, and is rated T for Teens by the ESRB. 

 I started off playing the tutorial and found it very helpful with the early stages of learning to fly in the game.  It's quite easy to learn the controls and fly each of the different types of planes.  After a few runs at the tutorial I started up the Campaign mode to get a feel for the combat.  I started with the US side (nobody wants to be the bad guys off the start, ha ha) and was instantly dropped into the Pearl Harbor conflict.  It's a lot of fun being able to switch between aircraft to get a better angle on an enemy while dog fighting and when your bombing, once you run out of bombs you send the plane back and switch to a new one that is full of bombs. No time lost flying back to base to reload! I finished that battle then switched to the Japanese side to try it out and it was just as good!  Being able to fly the different kinds of planes each side has to offer is a good challenge to get used to but very fun once you get the hang of each type!  The ability to change the flight rosters is a good feature I found when the pilots start gaining experience in battle and getting their talents.  The Instant Battle and Survive! modes are lots of fun as well. Once and a while you just want to bomb something, do some dog fighting or just blast away at enemy planes from a carrier based anti-aircraft gun to let off some steam!

Overall the game is lots of fun to play!  Game play is good and the story line sucks you in making you want to sit there and play for hours.  Controls are very easy to get the hang of although I never did try out the Play station Motion controllers so I can't say how that would be. Only complaint I have about the game is the environment graphics but with the plane graphics being good and the fact you are always in combat, you hardly notice the graphics outside the plane!

Maximum Games would love to give away one of these games featured above to one lucky US winner. A random draw will be held by on September 13, 2013 from all entries received.
