    The History Channel: Battle for the Pacific isn't necessarily an atrocious game, but it just isn't that fun and brings so very little to the table.
  2. The gameplay is poorly ported from a console to the PC, which seems like the wrong way to do things.
  3. Many of the A.I., both friendly and enemy, look the same. There are only a few different character models. They animate well, but at times they will get stuck in the scenery or just freeze.
  4. You're better off buying DVD's of History Channel shows. [May 2008, p.59]
  5. Ultimately, though, the biggest blow against the game is its brevity. You shouldn't have trouble clearing its single-player mode in two or three hours.

    Saben que? es la primera vez que un juego no me parece tan bueno y voy a decir porque. 1) graficos 7.8 son los mismos que en el soldier of fortune 3, y es obvio porque utiliza su mismo motor, aunque son buenos, son muy anticuados ya y no estan tan geniales. tecnologia 9 como siempre su brillante optimizacion me sorprende y su fluidez de controles tambien, pero podrian haber añadido otras mecanicas de juego como correr o atacar con el cuchillo. jugablidad 6 es la misma que el sof pero, es muy repetitiva y parece un videojuego tipo rambo más del monton, la ia es una de tiro al blanco, osea que quiere que la mates como mas te guste y la dificultad es demasiado simple, es un juego hecho a las apuradas. sonido 5 el sonido es bueno pero la musica es demasiado monotona y secante. innovacion 3 no innova y es una de las tantas copias de call of duty.
