At War : The Pacific Campaign
is meant to give the Land Warrior player an almost accurate recreation
of the battles of World War II. It is based on the American vs. Japan
battles in the Pacific. It begins as America enters the war (Pearl Harbour).
You take the role of a Marine and fight at many of the major Pacific
battles (Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, etc.). You can use weapons from both
sides including the American M1E7, Springfield M1903, Thompson M1A1, the
Japanese 99 short rifle and many more.
American Colt 1911A1
American M1 Garand Rifle
American M2 Carbine
American M1903A3 Springfield
American Browning Automatic Rifle
Japanese Type 99 Short Rifle
Japanese Type "I" Rifle

Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Okinawa
contains 3 maps each (if I remember correctly). Overall it can be seen the maps
haven't had too much effort put into them - they are fairly dull. The exception to
the rule are the Guadalcanal maps, created by Camouflage and JudgeDread of
*AUS*. They have created some of the best S/P maps seen! 3 screenshots
from this campaign appear below. The use of AI and custom built objects make you
feel you're really there. They outshine the other campaigns 3 fold.

This was one of the 1st
mods for LW (so its pretty dated now), but is pretty enjoyable overall. The weapon
specs aren't perfect, but who cares?? The author notes this and it is mainly because of problems with the
game. The characters skins look awesome - great stuff Parker! The only really
disappointing thing about the mod is that the weapons skins don't work in 3rd
player view and the quality of the maps, already mentioned.
