As a real-time strategy game, players are allowed to control individual ships and planes. Furthermore, players can also act as an ordinary sailor, who can man various
anti-aircraft gunpositions on a ship or man various gunner positions in a heavy/medium bomber plane, turning the game also into a first-person shooter.Fact|date=February 2008

memory leak. Patch 1.4 has been released to fix problems on Windows Vista. It is up to 1.5.
This game has been criticized by many gamers due to some historical inaccuracies, mostly due to limited types of ships and aircraft available in the game, for example the presence of two US
Colorado class battleships in Singapore at December 7th, 1941, instead of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse.
