Pacific Storm is a game about the war in the Pacific between the U.S. and Japan. It has the elements of a global strategy, tactical game and an arcade air simulator. Playing either for the United States or Imperial Japan, you walk through a dramatic sequence of large-scale naval and air military operations. The game covers the time from 1940 - 1948. As you play, you can develop new technologies, build and deploy new weapon systems or even change history. Thanks to a smooth and seamless combination of strategy, tactics and simulator, you are completely free to take whatever strategic or tactical decisions you consider best or abandon for a time all strategy and tactics and inhabit any of your units so as to take part in the fighting personally. Steel Monster's gameplay combines exceptional depth and scale of the strategic mode, superior authenticity of the tactical mode and exciting dynamics of the simulator.
Pacific Storm is all about battleships and aircraft carriers - the giants of naval warfare during WWII - about captains and admirals, as well as rank-and-file soldiers and sailors of the two great military powers, that locked in a life-and-death conflict. In Pacific Storm you can become Commander-in-Chief, responsible for the lives of thousands of servicemen and the destiny of your country, commanding officer of a small squadron or even an ordinary military pilot, fighting in the sky over the Pacific. And, gradually, as you play, from all these separate bits and pieces will emerge one impressive picture of the great and fierce battles fought in the Pacific during WWII.
