Default Battlestations: Pacific

Anyone played Battlestations: Pacific?
Looks like a pretty cool game.
It's only $5.00 right now @ Direct2Drive.

Direct2Drive: 5 Year Anniversary - 50 games for $5 each!

Should I bother getting it?
I've been in the mood for something like it.

For $5, it is worth it. I found it pretty fun actually.

This is a really fun game. Thanks for pointing this out, I am now buying a second copy for my lan computer. This is a steal for 5 bucks and I highly recommend.

I'll be playing it later tonight...

Hope it's half-decent.
Are you limited to just vehicles, or can you get out and run around too?
Either way it looks pretty cool.
For $5, why the hell not.

You can use ships/pt boats/landing craft/aircraft but you can't control troops. I think it is a great naval sim personally.

Funny I was just looking at this in London Drugs earlier tonight. I think it was $5 or $10 there.

Heh heh I'm with you Perenium. Look at my rig. Haven't updated it in over a year (not including a 2nd screen) and it's pretty modest to start with. And I only buy 1-2 full price games/year. The rest are heavily discounted. So here's to being cheap! :)
