Gamespot posted some first impressions of Attack on Pearl Harbor by CDV at the Game Developers Conference. Although airplanes will obviously be involved, Attack on Pearl Harbor is not a flight simulator but rather an action game set in World War II. People who are looking for a WW2 realistic flight simulator game should probably forget about Attack on Pearl Harbor, only the basic flight characteristics of the historic aircraft are included. Action title lovers will be happy to hear that there will be enough stuff to blow up. Expect it to hit shelves around June this year.
Attack on Pearl Harbor (R) CDV
CDV is showing off its newest game at the Game Developers Conference, an action arcade air-combat game called Attack on Pearl Harbor, and as you can probably guess from its name, the game is set in World War II. This isn’t a serious flight simulation as much as it’s an action game that happens to feature airplanes, and it’s being aimed at veterans with a fond memory of such classics as Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe.
Attack on Pearl Harbor is set in the days leading up to the devastating Japanese attack on the Hawaiian naval base and the weeks afterward, though it probably won’t feature other major battles, such as Midway or the Coral Sea. You’ll be able to play as either a Japanese or American pilot in the campaign, and at your disposal will be a stable of historically appropriate aircraft. While the game isn’t a hardcore flight sim, it will try and capture the basic characteristics of each aircraft. For instance, the Japanese Zero will be nimbler than American fighters, but the latter will be more durable.
