Heroes of the Pacific takes to the skies

New screens from Codemasters' WWII-themed flight combat project

Jamming us into cockpits and gunner positions as battle ensues in the skies, Heroes of the Pacific is an action-heavy flight combat title developed by Australian outfit IRGurus and features oodles of dogfighting.

Kicking of with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Heroes of the Pacific 's storyline then continues to relate several key encounters in the U.S. Navy's campaign in the Pacific. 26 missions take us through famous confrontations in such locations as Midway Island, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal.

Codemasters will publish the game on PC, PS2 and Xbox in September this year. Enjoy the screens.
