Is there a reason there has not been any Pacific campaigns


Recommended Posts

Yes, I was never keen on Pacific Theater as the fun parts were primarily air and naval - or so WITPAE seems to show.  I imagine one atoll or stretch of jungle is much like any other.

However, there is a Pacific War mod that enable one to play some island scenarios.

Looking at what the successful cardboard game companies are selling however, it seems that there is a perennial demand for early war and Afrika Korps games - those seem very much to be the bread and butter titles.

Yep, I remember that I played some pacific battles with Steel Panthers, but never really liked them. Except for one, where I had naval artillery support from a heavy cruiser. Did not add much excitement to the game, but it was a great show….

CM2 is tank centric and excels at this. Pacific theater would be light on tanks, especially for the Japanese.  Maybe Korean War would be more suitable? 

Korean War  would be great , mostly WW2 stuff , as far as infantry is concerned , would need vehicle and some arty upgrades for the US/S. Korean side. Communist forces and maps would be the build. I think Black Sea could mod out a " what if" of a modern Korean conflict. Hey you could kill 2 birds with one stone, mostly, map wise.
