The progression from World War I to World War II fighter plane technology was staggering. In just 20 years, planes had turned from brittle old moths to swooping, howling hawks.
It's perhaps too much to ask for a similarly dramatic step forward from the Gold Award-winning Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, especially in just six months.
But Pacific Skies is a more than worthy follow-up that maintains the first game's sky-high standards with a couple of well-considered additions and enhancements.
Though Ace Patrol and Pacific Skies's core systems are pretty much identical, the latter's shift to a more technologically advanced conflict and thoughtful enhancements make it every bit the worthy sequel
