    Fanciful flight modeling aside, Trickstar did an admirable job with the individual aircraft renders, and when things blow up, they do so spectacularly. The lengthy and sometimes meandering campaign missions could use a rewrite, but Damage's diverting pyrotechnics and shallow learning curve should earn it solid points with the plug-and-play arcade crowd.

    My expectations with Damage Inc. Pacific Squadron WWII were wide open, and as it turns out the game is a pretty decent one with plenty of options for view, control, and playing with or without friends.

    Unfortunately, the real damage with Damage Inc was that Mad Catz did not focus on making a game that was as good as its hardware.

    Most of the missions outstay their welcome with shooting down so many planes each level, quickly becoming tedious and dull.

    More of a "side offer" with the awesome AV8R Flight Stick by Mad Catz than a proper game that could stand on its own in the market.

    Even with so few competitors, you will be able to find better games to quench your thirst for dogfights than this one. Its poor production values, lack of real challenge, or decent flight simulation are too much for it to really rise above the clouds.

    The massive kill counts and lack of any allied AI once again leaves you as 'the one guy who can defeat an entire nation'. The war was won because of team work, not one single person. I realise that this can never truly be conveyed through a video game, but for that notion to be so crudely thrown to one side is very disappointing. Their lack of understanding extends to their apparent obliviousness to such facts as the US Air Force not even being in existence when you supposedly join up in the story, to the addition of missiles, that were barely on the drawing board by the end of the war. It seems that the developers have taken on a 'that'll do' approach to Damage Inc. Pacific Squadron WWII, well I can tell you now, that simply won't do.
