When Dying for the Empire Was an Honor...
At the close of the year 1941, the Japanese Empire unveiled its imperialist
plans to unite the western Pacific under the flag of the Rising Sun. The name
for the new territory would be the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere."
Beginning with the unprovoked, devastating raid on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese
military launched surprise attacks against key strategic targets in an all-out
effort to secure victory. From Singapore to Manila to the tiny island of Guam,
the nations of the western Pacific faced the most dangerous enemy ever... men
who considered it an honor to die in service of the Empire of the Rising
Now you too, can take your stand at Okinawa with TalonSoft's Rising Sun, the
third installation in the award-winning East Front/West Front series. Storm the
shores of the islands of the South and West Pacific or hunt your foes down
through the snake-infested jungles of Burma. Do battle on the sandy beaches of
Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Betio, and many others. TalonSoft's Rising Sun puts
platoon-level combat at your fingertips; do you have what it takes to lead your
troops to victory?
Exciting Scenarios: Relive historic ground battles between the Japanese and the
forces of the United States, Britain and the Commonwealth from 1941 to 1945.
"Linked Campaign" Games: Lead a band of determined Japanese as they battle
their way into Manila in 1942, or command your battle-hardened "Leathernecks"
as they wade ashore and expand their beachhead at Guadalcanal. Or, take your

range along the jungle-choked Kokoda Trail.

"The third sequel of Talon Softs "Campaign" serial proves that not all
has been said about the second world war and that the frequently used time
period from 1939 to 1945 still has much to offer to the gaming industry. The
serial first concentrated on the eastern front, and then continued westwards to
bring us finally to the far east (or far west as some would call it). Apart
from entertaining strategy fans, Rising Sun shows us that the WWII did not only
hold Europe in its clutches, it also caught all other continents..."
"Apart from the 40 single player and
multiplayer scenarios there are also 7 campaigns for one player: three dynamic
ones where you can choose one of the sides and try to change the course of the
war, and four link campaigns with a fixed order of maps and sides you have to
play. The dynamic campaigns keep changing mission goals every time you start
them. You can multiply the number of missions with five, because it is possible
to play them on different scales, commanding anything from a battalion to a
corpse. The first ones will have raiding or scouting missions, while the latter
will take control of islands and destroy whole armies."
"The computer is a worthy adversary, he will try hard to pass your frontline
units and reach the poorly defended points like HQ or artillery. There are four
levels of AI something for everyone, everything for someone."
