i'm a great fan of gary grisbys "pacific war" game that i started playing back in a 286 and has been on the hard drive of every single computer i've owned since then... i 'm wondering since this game was made by him aswell, how does it compare with the old classic? is it the same game with pretty graphics or is it completly different?

thanks in advance

Same guy, same game. Plus PBEM. You'll love it.

If you liked the old "Pacific War" game, you'll love this new "War in the Pacific".

Hi, When I first saw PacWar I thought "Nothing will ever top this"
Now I can't stand to look at it.
Most days I spend 12 hours playing WITP and have been doing so for over a year. I still pace the floor when waiting for PBEM turns to comeback.

One wonders where Mogami earns his coin to eat and sleep. I have gotten turns back from him at every hour of the day, from the middle of the night, to early morning, to late afternoon. He seems to take a break on Sunday (appropriate for the god of WitP), but otherwise, he is a machine. I suspect he uses Sundays to root for the Saints and drink (more) beer.

Hi, Eating and sleeping are habits your mother got you started on when you were an infant to shut you up. (Drinking beer I picked up on my own)

It didn't work. My wife tells me I talk in my sleep. Oh, and I talk while chewing.

Hi, If she puts a nipple on a bottle of Pilsner Urquell before you go to bed you'll be quiet.

Killing baby seals is *BAD*. Greenpeace will kill you to save the seals if they catch you!
