South Pacific naval sim focused on surface shooting action
The Task Force 1942 game could have tried a more simulator version of what it tries to do, offer you a top down as well as first person view of a gunner, mounted on a ship at sea. However, this portion of the game plays mostly as an arcade shooter, the simulator portion having to do more with the way the game tackles your strategic placement during battles. Graphics wise you should not expect anything too good, however, for its time the game managed a relatively decent type of graphic outlook, with static 2D sceneries and large HUDs that were not really functional in all of their depictions. But, nevertheless, the game doesn't suffer because of these problems; it can still be tackled if you have the patience for such game combinations. The strategic portion is by no means complicated but it might be harder to tackle due to the insufficient information you are presented with, while the shooting potion can also be made harder by the implementation of the trajectory of bullets and other missiles, which at times can prove misleading. So, take care with this one, it's not the most user friendly shooter game out there, nor the most sophisticated strategy game either.
