    The number of planes in the sky at once is amazing, always something to shoot at.

    Heroes of the Pacific is a mindblowing adrenaline fueled airial dogfight. If you like flying games then you have been waiting for this game since the Xbox launched. Nothing like being on the tail of an enemy plane and blasting away with your guns until there is a giant fireball in the sky. Or hearing the metal of your wings tearing as the enemy blasts away at you from your six. The sheer Heroes of the Pacific is a mindblowing adrenaline fueled airial dogfight. If you like flying games then you have been waiting for this game since the Xbox launched. Nothing like being on the tail of an enemy plane and blasting away with your guns until there is a giant fireball in the sky. Or hearing the metal of your wings tearing as the enemy blasts away at you from your six. The sheer number of planes in the game is amazing. There are tons of options including: -4 difficulty levels -The view of your plane (close, far, cockpit). -HUD (on, minimal and off) you can even position your HUD normally or at the bottom of the screen. -Planes are upgradable. -You can choose authentic or arcade control of your plane. Choose from mission, campaign, fly now. There is even a training section. This is the best air combat game I have ever played. Better than Ace Combat because with Ace Combat you lock on with a missile and there are few enemies in the sky. With Heroes you are dogfighting with a massive amount of planes all around you. Get this game. Expand

  1. Relive those thrilling aerial battles in this low-key but surprisingly solid WWII flight sim, featuring plethora of aircrafts, modes and online support.
  2. The final marks I'm giving the game reflect my frustration with the defending aspects of the game and the poor implementation of Xbox Live, but if you're a fan of flight action games this is one of the better ones around.
  3. A bit of a mixed bag. Astounding presentation, some very clever innovations (such as "Warp Speed" as standard on a 1940's aeroplane) and some very slick flight action is broken up by slowdown and a feeling that you've seen it all before.
