  • Summary: Pearl Harbor: Zero Hour has simple arcade-style controls that provide a fun, absorbing game. Thrill to combat in the air, on land, and at sea as you fight Japanese forces in 10 missions drawn from the actual Pacific campaign of World War II, including the Battle Of Midway and Guadalcanal.

    Despite interesting missions like Midway and Guadalcanal, experienced gamers can blow through Zero Hour in a day. Ambitious flyboys will gladly return to it as coffee break filler, but long-term companionship is doubtful.

    Overall I'd rather watch the movie again...and I hated the movie.
  3. The low-res, 640x480 graphics are a quaint throwback to the mid-'90s and the absence of any sort of independent camera control or alternate viewing options make for some pretty static gameplay environments.
  4. The game fails to tread new water in the field. It may have been a solid title, without the Pearl Harbor title, five years ago. It is a fair arcade, third-person perspective flight sim, and nothing more.
