Ok, this is my second time I reviewed it first version 2.03 and now version 2.10 I cannot believe how much the game changed. I always look at the Facebook page ( the only reason l use Facebook ) and I at "started" it was planed as a tactical shooter and now a top-notch game. The explosions in versions below 2.0 had no sound, and always looked the same. Also you could only move 3 ways: move closer, move farther, or disengaged now you have 2 turns. One move and one to attack. Realism was a 7/10 but now it is a 9/10. Also I've heard there's gonna be a SEQUEL to PF. I've been going BONKERS waiting for the name of the game. PACIFIC FLEET II? MODERN FLEET? ATLANTIC FLEET? (British vs German and DO NOT make HMS Hood the battleship for the British because it had armor sides: MAX 12 inches and the deck only 2 inches in most places and 4 inches in very few places. Compared to the Bismarck which had side armor 12.6 inches and deck armor of 6.7 inches and it took 1 hr and 30 min to sink it. HMS Hood sunk only 6 min into the same battle the Bismarck was in so PLEASE put either HMS Prince of Wales or HMS Warspite Instead. PLEASE) but any way I love this game because of its realistic graphics and that it could be played almost anywhere (in the train, in the car, or even in the plane) this game is gonna be a mainstay on my iPad. PEOPLE WHO ARE READING THIS WHO ARE READING THIS WHO DON'T HAVE THIS GAME… BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stellar game with one ruinous flaw
This game is a true achievement. I cannot speak highly enough about the graphics, the attention to detail, and the sheer depth of play. It's a truly immersive game that I might play again and again and again.
I say "might" because there is one flaw, but it's a big one. Most battles are sea engagements, but there is an occasional island level with your fleet vs land targets. These levels are extremely unintuitive, combining very difficult aiming with no damage meters and regenerating targets. You simply have no idea what's happening on an island level and no way of knowing if you are making any progress at all. It is deeply, deeply frustrating and not at all fun.
Bottom line: even a challenging sea battle is engaging and fun, but the island levels will make you want to delete the game entirely. Hopefully this will change in a future update, and this will become a true five-star game.
UPDATE: after weeks of practice and forum searches and even an email to the developer, I still cannot make heads or tails of island levels. I've stopped on level 36 and cannot make any progress whatsoever. This game is officially deeply unpleasant for me to play now, and I will be deleting it. A shame since I think this would be a fantastic game if this problem were addressed.
This may be the first review of an app I've ever written...Pacific Fleet is so good that I feel it's my duty to spread the word. As others have said, the graphics, realism and attention to detail are terrific. And the variety of scenarios, vessels and escorts is great. One thing I want to make clear: the island battles are really not all that difficult once you figure out how to effectively bring naval gunfire (or close air support) to land-based enemy targets. Yes, the island battles are a bit non-intuitive and there is a learning curve, but that's part of the fun of the game. I'm not a gamer by any means but once I got the hang of the island battles, they're actually quite easy. Also I recommend going through each of the 40+ scenarios JUST with the submarine, then go back and add additional escorts and try the battles again (or simply start a new game). This way you will develop an excellent understanding of enemy tactics... and using just the sub is arguably the most challenging way to play the game. Lastly, there are a few useful player guides out there, just do a search.
