Description of Gary Grigsby's Pacific War

"THE simulation of the Pacific. Graphically acceptable, its strength lay in the sheer data and scope of the campaign. In all truth, I find it overwhelming, but I can recognize quality when I see it.

Highly recommended for retirees -- or for those for whom the expression "Get a Life" means something. It properly emphasizes logistics, and will allow the player to choose his own level of command -- supreme commander, area commander, or even a task force commander while the computer runs everything else." [excerpt from M. Evan Brooks' Homepage]

Deep and fulfilling. You learn about supply and it's affects in modern war as well as the complexities of amphibious invasion. I got this thinking it would be a longer more intense version of carrier strike but it became an albeit more addictive beast. As a wartime it is a grinder, with attrition and unit experience playing a large role.

Computer gaming world magazine wrote a huge article on how to play going through all the mechanics of how to get the most out of the game. There was also a huge following and mailing list which I sadly now only have a hard copy print out of. I don't know if there has been a deeper war game to date and all this in 640kb!

Matrix games have released it for free with slightly updated graphics and less bugs. Learning curve is very steep but it is worth the effort if u r interested in WW2 in the pacific
