  • Summary: Carriers at War is a simulation of fleet carrier air and naval operations in the Pacific theater from 1941 to 1945. The game focuses heavily on carrier fleet command strategy. Other units are represented and play a part in battle, but as the title suggests the queen of the sea is the focus. [Matrix Games] Expand

  1. Not pretty, plump, or progressive, CaW succeeds in spite of itself. The gripping subject matter, the refreshing absence of turns, and the fact that victory and defeat are often just a couple of bomb or torpedo hits away, combine to produce pace and levels of excitement you don't often find in hardcore wargames.
