The game features fighting in some of the most historic battles in the Pacific campaign, in large, lush environments, from the Battle of Corregidor and Guadalcanal to the closing days of Iwo Jima.
This edition features, in contrast to the PS2/Wii edition, squad-based missions. Two soldiers and an NCO fight by your side while other soldiers help out as well.
One noticeable aspect is that the player cannot wander too far off from the commanding soldier or else the mission will be terminated. This limits free roaming and creates a more linear single player experience.
This edition also includes a multiplayer mode.
