I've been playing computer games for thirty years or so. Warplan and now Warplan Pacific are the best operational/strategic PC games I've ever played. I was a playtester for both, I have hundreds of hours into both games. I'm hoping that new players will give Warplan Pacific a good, thorough runthrough - go through the learning curve, try various tactics and strategies - they, you, will be rewarded for that effort with just a great game.
I play close to history, I don't try gamey play. My payoff is a game that gives me a 'sense' of what really happened. Other players do like to game the game - that's fun for them, and they can find all kinds of things to fiddle with - they'll have fun too.
My point is, if you're on the fence, if you read criticism, don't get dissuaded by it. It's a great game.
