Ad Copy

I was browsing through this month's issue of Computer Gaming World when I chanced upon an ad featuring a picture of an Iowa class battleship being attacked by Japanese planes. Being a naval battles buff, I read the accompanying text, quoted here verbatim:

"Send your enemies to the bottom..
..in a game like you've never seen"

The story of "Navy Field" was based on the WWII which is considered to be one of the most unforgettable and largest wars of the 20th century. As you can tell by the title, "Navy Field" is the story of naval battles during WWII. In "Navy Field", players can take command of historical ships such as the Yamato and Musashi, US New Jersey, US Missouri, U.K. Princess of Wales, and the German Bismarck. As well as providing these historically well known ships and images, "Navy Field" also allows the opportunity for players to experience such vivid moments of WWII naval battles in individual battles with up to 128 simultaneous players. If you wish to be a hero; join "Navy Field" today!

Really makes me want to give them my credit card number, I tell ya. This is why you should always hire a local ad agency when you're trying to sell your product in another country. It would also help to get your facts correct. It's USS New Jersey and Missouri, and while HMS Prince of Wales may be referred to as "she," she wasn't named after Lady Diana.
