On the 7th of December, 1941, a Japanese carrier strike force attacked the American naval base of Pearl Harbor. With the Allied fleets crippled, Japan invaded most of allied controlled South East Asia. This begun the devasting Pacific War.

These scenarios were playable and were really fun sometimes (esp. Phillipines and Singapore, though both of them were quite easy). However, most of them had very similar goals, thus eventually becoming boring, and this reduced this rating to a 3. Also, the battle of Malaya had that problem with those British Z forces.
Most of the scenarios were too easy(I completed them all the first time I tried, excepting Hong Kong, which I had to replay because the instructions were misleading, Malaya and Java which I didn't win). However, the Java scenario was really, really tough for me. I tried it seven times but I never won. However I'm not an expert at naval combat, so I'm pretty sure it's winable. The Malaya scenario had the problem I've reported before, so I've stopped playing it.
I wouldn't say these scenarios are creative. Excepting Pearl Harbour and Java, all the scenarios were esentially "conquer everything" scenarios. I would have given a higher rating if you had included more triggers to improve the gameplay, thus having also more variety. Though these are historical scenarios, I think it would've been a good idea to let the player take some decisions(that would, or would not change the historical facts).
Map Design: 5
Excellent maps! Definitely they're among the best I've ever seen in this game. The map used in the Phillipines scenario was especially wonderful.
Despite the fact the Hong Kong scenario's instructions were misleading and there are some repetions that could've been avoided, the instructions are good, and the war story is good as well.
Additional Comments: These are solid, well-thought scenarios. I wouldn't say they are among the best I've ever played but they are still definitely worth downloading.
