Battlestations Pacific Trailer: Epic Battles

I have to say, I really enjoyed the first Battlestations game. It wasnt the most polished effort in the world, but its mix of strategy and action was quite unique. Now with the success of that game behind them, Eidos Hungary has set out to truly raise the bar with Battlestations Pacific. The first thing that catches me about the trailer is the graphics - they are really a generational leap beyond the first game and clearly utilize 100% of the resources of the Xbox 360. Also, the map interface has been totally reconfigured, they added dozens of new units, damage modeling, day and night cycles, weather changes, and now Japan has its own playable campaign where its possible to defeat the allies. The developers have promised "double the content" of the first game. Awesome, count me in.
