Optimizations and Bug Fixes
Not as fun as the first one...
I wanted to like this game, but there are several changes from the first game that I don’t really care for:
1) Planes accumulate damage and don’t get repaired until the next campaign.
2) Avatars have silly/annoying expressions… only the Americans.
3) Glitchy effects and crash animations.
4) No “Leading Aces” stat board.
5) Annoying start up video. I have to watch an ad for a game I bought? Why?
6) Fewer countries to choose from.
7) You get multiple victory stats for shooting down a plane with multiple people inside. It should be 1 plane = 1 victory.
8) No mission selection.
9) G-Force and altitude restrictions make combat less fun and more tedious.
10) Enemy is either too easy or too hard.
There are some things I liked about it though:
1) More missions per game.
2) Plane customization.
3) Injured pilots don’t stay out of action for long.
4) Multiple save slots.
Those points made, this could have been an amazing game, but it doesn't seem to me they put as much effort into Pacific Skies as they did or the first one. Maybe they’ll get it right in a future update?
Great game. Details need sorting out
Love the previous game. Great graphics. Game play is choppy at times. Cumulative damage on my planes from mission to mission?!? I guess the airplane mechanics are on strike. Enjoyed choosing mission type in previous game, would like to see that here too.
Using ace maneuver high Yo-Yo is not applying the second parts damage. Ex: I preview high yo yo and says 20% followed by 100% damage, the other plane is still flying after attack! Does this regularly every time. Please fix!
Not the first one
I played this now a number of different times of the course of a few months hoping to like it, but it just fails to live up to the first one. The enemies are either push overs or impossible to play. Specifically the Japanese planes in the beginning are like paper airplanes, but by the third mission they are performing moves that simply defy gravity, it's ridiculous. That being said it is worth the 2 bucks, but play the first one out before you commit to this one.
