    The best effort to portray WWII in the Pacific Theater in a historical manner so far. Most definitely not for the faint of heart or the casual gamer, this game (or simulation, if you prefer) has a steep learning curve (and that is an understatement). I know, I know… that has been said about many a game, but let me put it this way: I had played WitP for years, had read the 332-page manual in its entirety, re-reading some sections several times and, when I played the Coral Sea scenario the first time (the introductory scenario), I was handed my posterior in a coffin by a VERY agressive AI. I was impressed.

    This game will take years to master, and there are already some alternate scenarios and mods in the works, but if you take the time to study (yes, STUDY… taking notes, asking questions, looking at reinforcements queues, comparing plane stats, etc.) and persevere, this may be the most bang for your buck you will ever get. WitP was released five years ago, I bought it as soon as it came out, and I won my last PBEM game yesterday. And AE seems like it is going the same way… YEARS of play.

    So, if you are interested, drop by at http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=528 (the game’s forum at Matrix), take a look around, and ask. You will not be disappointed.
