This time around, you get Battle for Midway and Iwo Jima on on cassette. Both battles are set in the Pacific during WWII.

Battle for Midway is great but Iwo Jima isn't.

In the first you control the American fleet. You know there's a Japanese task force, full of aircraft carriers, steaming towards Midway island, where you have an air base. But you don't know where it is you have to find the enemy, and then bring your own ships - including your aircraft carriers - within range and give 'em hell. It's an excellent game.

I wish I could say the same about Iwo Jima, but I can't. . You control the US marines storming ashore on the little island of Iwo Jima towards thousands of fanatical Japanese soldiers hidden in almost impregnable fortification. After the initial landings, you find yourself pinned down turn after turn... After a while, it's a pain in the rear achelons.

Conflicts 2 is one really good game and one that's a bit of a snooze.

Worth it for Midway, an excellent strategy game with a real feel to it. Iwo Jima is much less impressive.
