Pilot 25 actual WWII aircraft through single-player missions, and control up to eight wingmen. Multiplayer modes include Co-op, Dogfight, Team Dogfight, Capture the Flag, and Fox and Hounds.
The game allows the player to assume the role of a combat pilot named William Crowe as he experiences the various phases of the Pacific War with Japan, beginning with the Pearl Harbor attack.

One or two players can play simultaneously on the console or up to eight players can play on the network via Xbox Live or using a PlayStation 2 with network adapter.
