First-person shooter. Welcome to The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific that offers you to take part in the most significant battles of the Pacific Campaign including the legendary Battle of Iwo Jima. Relive epic land battles fought on some of the most brutal and unforgiving battlefields in recorded history. Play through the eyes of an American GI as you experience intense, no holds barred action against an opponent for which surrender isn't an option. However, its lackluster presentation, poor controls, abundance of AI glitches and forgettable narrative make this an FPS game you may want to skip.
Style and atmosphere inside the game:
The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific lets you assume a role of an American soldier participating in the U.S. campaign. And the first downside lies in the weak character personality that is very strong in first-person shooters, present on the market nowadays. The other drawback is game play itself. The majority of missions gets you involved in following either an officer or associate soldier. If you move away from your companion even slightly, the mission will finish. All in all, The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific is an average game that works quite well but guides you through the same locations that make you sick of very quickly.
