In a way exhausting
we're problem solving
Drink 'til she's attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS
Talking 'bout diplomatic
I brought my plastic
Making that peace attractive

Great! I cant wait to play the game. :) If you finished the pearl harbor games you could make a WW1 flight game. That would be awsome because it was mostly 1:1 fights but there is enough variaty for other operations like shooting down enemy observation balloons or bomb enemy artillery or even cities. (the first real bomber was made by germany and the name of that bomber forced the english royal family to change their german name to windsor). Or you can make a WW2 U-Boot game. :)

I have one question. Does the game have a cut scene or anything showing the attack of Pearl Harbor? I'd really like to know since if it does, I don't think I'll be playing it. No offense, but my grandpa was one of the men who lost their lives that day and it would just hit too close to home.

I know, it kind of makes me a wuss, but it would almost be like being there and I don't know if I can handle that. (If anyone is interested, he was a gunner-the ones who sat in the rotating turrets that were built into the ships. Odd bit of trivia, he was originally stationed on another ship less than a month before with my other grandpa, before my mom was born. It was just fate that my parents had fathers who served and knew each other almost 30 years before they met)

I am the one you despise. I am he who says what you really deep down know but are affraid to admit. I am the Anti-Fanboy, the crusader of truth in a world built on your lies.

It's actually done in a comic-book style. No animation or voiceovers, so you just read the pages to see what happens.

How many levels are in each campain? Is there anything else to do after that?

Retro Studios, go reboot Star Fox. The franchise needs it.

@turtlelink Thanks, it's always been weird only knowing him from stories, but it's kind of an honor, too. I have a picture of all the guys in his unit from about a week before the attack that my grandma gave me. I'm the only one with the real picture, but I made copies for all of the relatives but it's been used in some documentaries (not my copy, but the one in the archives). One thing it did though is make me have a (some would say strange or misplaced) sense of love and patriotism for America.

@irken I can deal with that. I just wasn't wanting to see the Japanese planes actually coming in and explosions in real time. I still won't watch Michael "I can rape ur childhood?" Bay's Pearl Harbor movie.

@eripmav I don't mean to sound like an ass for saying this, but did the question of wanting to respect the actual event along with the victims and families come up during the making of the game? I'm not saying you didn't, it's just that I'm interested in behind the scenes stuff almost as much as I am the finished product and it seems like you guys took the time to actually try to base it on reality instead of playing fast and loose with history like a lot of games do.

@Rowdy

We tried to be as respectful and thorough as possible with regards to research as possible, from the plane detalings and models used to the uniforms of the soldiers in the cutscenes. Of course we respect what happend at Pearl Harbor, me for example I'm in the UK, think of all what happend to us in WWII. PH was a pivotal moment in WWII and if a kid|adult picks up the game and gets interested in what happend and why, we've done our job:)

Are you going to make a trilogy about the war in europe? Battle of Brittion? D-day? Maybe have a British, American, German or maybe a USSR campain ( they fought The Third Reich, too).

I am going to download Pearl Harbor: Red Sun Rising once I get wii points! Good luck with the other two!

Retro Studios, go reboot Star Fox. The franchise needs it.

@eripmav Thanks, I just hope I didn't sound like an asshat with the way my question came out. It's just that really the last game I found that treated WWII as an actual war and not just fodder for games was the first Medal of Honor. Thanks again for the response, now I'm off to Walmart for a points card (I'll just save the other 1300 until the next two come out lol)

Edit: 12:40 am I just downloaded it if for nothing else, than just for how cool @eripmav has been through the whole time it was in dev. and going through Nintendos rigamaroll. Sure, it was to hype his game, but you rarely if ever see one of the big dogs come out to BS with the fans about the process. Seriously, you guys and the folks at Ghostfiregames will get an instant buy from me just for how accessable and friendly you've been. (it's like when I met Frank Miller at a comic convention and at the hotel bar he bought a few rounds for me and him and I just got to talk with him for about an hour, after that I pick up anything he has done) I wish more developers would be more outgoing with the potential customers, we gamers are a strange bunch and a little bit of back and forth goes a long way with us. You guys "get it", most don't.

Ok seeing as I just received some love, I'll share something with you all.

Any chance the last mission in the third game will be to drop the atomic bomb?

@UltraRobPrime tba:) That's all I can say really, but then the TBA is obviously IF Ep1 sells enough copies!

@RowdyRodimus You're ok, I never took it that way at all. I totally understand your questions and POV:)

I make it my mission to come onto forums and update you guys, it's an integral part of my job and I enjoy it. Out of all the forums I waffle on, this is by far the friendliest and has the best regular forumites. It's nice to see that you guys enjoy me stopping by:) I agree, alot of developers/publishers/PR simply don't understand how building a relationship with forums and their users can help hugely, it's something that Bjorn and I have always insisted upon.

@Flandy, thank you squire:)

@BulbasaurusRex erm....I couldn't say anything about that. Might raise too many eyebrows if we did something like that.

I reviewed it and I do plan on getting Sky Crawlers (Nintendo should have sorted by console repairs by then) when it releases on the 16th, so I'll be happy to report then. I traded in Sky Crawlers because it was losing my attention a bit with the lengthy campaign, so something short and sweet like this download I'm hoping will satisfy my desire for the odd bit of dogfighting. I'm most interested to see how the nunchuk-based controls compare as Sky Crawlers did a really good job of that.

Probably not the totally best place for this, but can't get lucky on google really. This game is as we know a trilogy, and it's a cut up version of a PC game from 2007 called 'Attack on Pearl Harbor' retooled for Wii.

How many here would think perhaps the better buy would be the PC game for $10 as you can keep it for good considering Nintendo's weird policy of no-game transfer binding the games to A system alone. I'm going back and forward on which way to go with this as sure motion controls are fun, as is playing on my tv for sure, but the PC game offers a lot too and for less (if the game $ stays level it will be $21 to get it all.)

I'm buying it because it's easier to just download it off WiiWare, I already have flight games for my PC, and I like to support efforts like this. (Oh and I like looking at my WiiWare channels.. lol)

But buying the PC games for 10 bucks is a better deal, yes.

That would be great, thank you.

I'll likely buy both but it's nice to hear how they compare/contrast since they're among the few good flight games this generation.

See you're thinking like I am for sure, I just have that extra nagging bit of me that purely hates Nintendo for binding a game to a system on a single download so if you end up with a WiiHD one day, or a dead system and buy a second you lose all your games you rightfully paid for and I have a HUGE beef with that.
