  • Summary: WWII Combat: Iwo Jima lets you relive the storied assault that marked a massive historical event -- the Iwo Jima landing. Welcome to the fight soldier! You face 8 square miles of rugged volcanic island broken by the weapons of war and occupied by hostile Japanese forces. It's Hell on Earth but it's vital to American forces as a staging point. Your mission is to seize this island from a heavily entrenched enemy. Collapse

  1. As awful as repeating any of these single-player mission sounds, it's something that you're going to have to get used to. Due to the unfair advantages of the enemy, including the fog of war that prevents you from seeing what lies ahead, you will constantly be surprised by waves of enemies as you push forward without the ability to obtain any intelligence or reconnaissance.

    The graphics, gameplay and AI seem like they fell out of a time warp from too many years ago. With much better games that came out just a short while ago available at a comparable cost, there isn't a good reason to purchase Iwo Jima.
  3. You still can't heal or even take enemies' weapons, although some minor gameplay improvements make this sequel better than "Berlin", so we are upping the score to a full 2.0 [Dec. 2006, p.84]
  4. From top to bottom World War II Combat: Iwo Jima is a terrible game with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
