Can this game be better than was Aces of the Pacific was in that old times?.

I mean, OMG! , Aces of the pacific covers all war (Started at Pearl Harbour and finished over Japan), had an awesome campaing which included historical mission, had lots of planes, best realism / models (For the time), LSO, carrier based operations, USMC , USAAF (Even P51 misions over Japan!!). Also have one of the best manuals of all times (with the history of the whole war!!, pictrues, all airplanes info and history, and we can still name more features!!! (Torpedo bombers, dive bombers...), JAF !! (from Ki27 to Ki100!!) JNAF .
I still think the only think Pacific Fighters need to be the best game ever is take AOP and upgrade the graphics and flight dynamics http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, i can be happy forever with that!.

OMG I WANT TO PLAY IT AGAIN!!!!!!!! (Bad it dont run in my computer....XMS memory http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif)

There are ways to get AOTP to work on new computers. Do a search for DOS shell type aps for WinXP for instance.

I loved that game too...I haven't played another Pacific Sim since then but this one looks to have the variety and ability to replace AOTP. I wasted so many hours with that and the manual (I still read it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

I don't recommend trying it again. I can't believe how many times I flew the same mission, ble up the same oil tanks and pillboxes and landed in the same 20 ft on the same 30.000 feet (seemingly) runway.

It depednds what you mean better. Ofcourse it will have better quality, graphics, flight model, and playbility.
But you cant take away with this title good old times some of us had playing AOTP

a while back i placed a thread asking wether we would be getting a campaign starting from the begining of the war to the end but i never got a single reply,even in in "pacific strike" 1994 there was a complete campaign with about 4 pilots interacting in between missions all the way to the end of the war which created a story line which added a personnal touch as well.will we get something like this ?

Perhaps it will be better... but I'm in no way certain of that. I sure loved AotP back then.. '92 was it?

One feature I would like in PF from AotP is the "hyper jump". Read this thread: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=26310365&m=876100014
