Crack AN EXCITING NEW HYBRID TITLE, PACIFIC STORM MIXES THE STRATEGIC ELEMENTS OF RTS TITLES WITH THE ACTION OF AN ARCADE TITLE. RTS FANS WILL ENJOY CLASSIC STRATEGY ELEMENTS INCLUDING RESOUCE MANAGEMENT, UNIT AND BUILDING CONSTRUCTION AND UNIT DEPLOYMENT, WHILE ACTION FANS WILL BE HAPPY TO TAKE THE SKIES OR SEAS AS THEY DIRECTLY CONTROL UNITS IN INTENSE COMBAT. IT'S LIKE GETTING TWO FANTASTIC WWII GAMES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! download

I've had this game for a year now and never been able to play it to the end. The Game will crash. I've played it on a number of computers now and it just doesn't work on any computer. So unless you are a programmer with nothing better to do, save your money and get something else. Every patch seems just to make things worse and you have to fix the patch. This makes me very leary of Pacific Storm Allies.

The PC game "Pacific Storm" jumped out at me because I'm fascinated by the Pacific Theater of World War 2. It claims to be a grand strategic simulation of that theater, complete with the ability to manage the logistics and tactics of the war. A strategy Sim game that explored that realm of the war seemed to be a wonderful find, and so I bought this game.

Unfortunately, I barely was able to play it.

I installed this game without a hitch, and then installed the latest patches. Upon running it, I went into the display setting to set it up for my particular monitor set up (1680x1020). Upon applying the settings, the game crashed. Not only did it crash, but it took my whole system with it, rebooting the computer entirely. I haven't had that happen to me in years, so I thought it a fluke and tried it again. The same thing happened.

I was eventually able to get the game to run, partially by dialing down the display settings and running it at a lower resolution. Even with that done, the game still crashed to the desktop while playing it.

I have a computer more than capable of running this game, and I just recently updated my display driver with the most recent version. I do not believe this issue is one with my computer. As an avid gamer, I've played hundreds of games over the years and none of them have displayed close to this level of erratic behavior. Given that I'm not the only one who has suffered from these issues, it is clear to me that the problem is with the game and its lack of bug testing before being shipped out to the consumer.

It's a real shame too, because from what little I played, this game has real promise. There's astounding depth there, and it's clear a lot of research went into developing it and creating the grand scenario it fits within. Clearly there were historians and naval experts involved in building this. If only there had been more playtesters and troubleshooters too.

After a ridiculous number of crashes, I gave up on it. I play games to have fun and relax, not to tear hair out over crashes. I do hope that the developer keeps working on fixing the issues, because I still would like to play it when it's gotten clear of its instability.

As a result, I have to give it very low marks.

For the record, I have:
Processor: Intel Quad core.
Ram: 4 gb
Video: Nvidia 7600GT
OS: Windows XP

The Russians invented the superbly reliable AK-47, now if they could only do the same with software. This game is very promising even though the graphics leave something to be desired. It is alot of fun though when it doesn't crash every 10 minutes. The strategic lvl is a little tedious but still fun. The tactical lvl is very cool using and controlling ships. Allies expansion will make this even more fun since you will be able to control the big guns on ships, and have location based damage. I will be getting it and seeing if it is anymore stable. Also, I have passed along some patch ideas to Buka so I will update this when I hear back.
