PC Gamer, March 1995
"We all know that an acceptable frame rate and realistic flight options are more important in an air-combat-simulation than good graphics, but isn't it wonderful when you find a sim that looks as good as flies? That's exactly the case with 1942: The Pacific Air War. The texture-mapped planes are simply stunning, making this the best-looking WWII flight sim ever created.
"But Pacific Air War does more than just look good. With a bevy of historic missions, career modes as either an American or Japanese pilot, modem play option (not included in the original release, but available on various online services and directly from MicroProse to registered PAW owners), and a satisfying variety of aircraft to fly, this one offers hours and hours of replay value. An essential component of any flight-sim fan's library."
