The Pacific Air War ...They Were Desperate, Daring And Deadly!

For the past 50 years, only the courageous veteran pilots of World War II knew the real risks of fighting the legendary Pacific air wars.

Now it's your turn!

Strap yourself into the cockpits of 1942: Pacific Air War and you'll experience the ultimate simulation of daring air combat over the South Pacific. Taking on the same challenges faced by World War II aviators, you'll tangle with the enemy in some of the most heroic battles ever fought. You'll chase down Wildcats, Corsairs, and Zeros through relentless gunfire. You'll pick apart enemy forces by dropping torpedoes. And you'll perform gravity-twisting dive-bomb attacks that will leave you glued to the back of your cockpit!

The outcome of each engagement turns upon your actions. Your task force is depending on you. It's a battle between the devil and the deep blue sea in 1942: Pacific Air War!
