Default Battlestations pacific

Any thoughts, feedback on this?

Played the demo today & quite impressed, seems like MP may be good.

Makes a change from the usual stuff i play.

I also enjoyed the demo, however has anyone figured out how to get the first person view via the planes?

If I can select the in ****pit view, then I'll defensively pick this up when released.

Mouse button 3 (middle mouse button).

It tells you the controls as you are starting to take off.

I didn't really like it.

Not really my genre though.

Just watched a trailer for the game; the concept seems neat, but I don't think I could stand that awful, stereotypical "Japanese English" voice throughout the game. If you're going to make a voice THAT heavily accented, then geez just do it in Japanese with subtitles.

I'm enjoying the demo but....

I can't seem to easily beat the computer AI in skirmish mode. Any suggestions? Perhaps I'm overlooking something?

Well, based on demo experience i've just ordered it thru steam, you get full version of Midway to play now as a bonus, me likey!

It's a lot of fun & very different, bought it for what i hope will be great multiplayer battles.

Mizzer, AI is hard as nails i'm finding, not beat it yet either..he he
