Released on the Xbox 360 and PC more than a year ago, this wartime combat game centres on the Battle of Midway. It blends strategy and arcade combat, but doesnt fall victim to the impenetrable or repetitive nature of hardcore titles in either...

In the ocean of World War Two action games currently available, this is one release that swims above the...

Battlestations: Midway is truly a jack-of-all-trades game. It doesn’t offer the same immersion level of a dedicated flight or submarine sim, but the tradeoff is you get a chance to command an entire fleet. RTS fans will be excited at the chance to...

This engaging hybrid of all-out action and enjoyable strategy play re-creates the battle for control of the Pacific that took place between American and Japanese forces during World War II. Roaring into life with the attack on Pearl...

It’s a submarine simulator! No wait, it’s an airplane game! No, no, no it’s a strategic battleship game! Astonishingly, Battlestations:Midway is all three of these. Not only does it avoid the “just another WWII game” label,...

Battlestations Midway is a pretty fun game, even though the difficulty ranges from overly easy to overly hard, and rather randomly and sudden when it does. The multiplayer system itself has issues, too. I am by no means new to gaming, or networks in...

Battlestations: Midway is an enjoyable action strategy game that should not be missed by any wannabe fleet commander...

Is it action? Is it strategy? No, Battlestations Midway is a little bit of both. Whereas some games, such as Call of Duty 2, concentrate on action and others, like Company of Heroes, concentrate on strategy, Battlestations Midway offers a little bit...

International Review By Tweak.dk on 28

”Battlestations Midway” er på sin vis et charmerende lille spil, men overordnet set kan det desværre ikke hamle op med andre WW II titler på markedet. Ganske vist skiller spillet sig ud på et par punkter, i forhold til...

International Review By FZ.se on 70

Berättar farfars far om hur roligt han hade på Stilla havet när han fraggade japaner? Känner du att sjön suger dig till sig? Säger farfars far att du inte är man nog att klara av livet på sjön? Då har du hittat helt rätt. Battlestations: Midway är en...

International Review By Subdogs on 60

Battlestations Midway bygger på den ambitiösa idén att låta spelaren ta kontroll över både fartyg och flygplan för att kämpa sig igenom de berömda sjöslag som vände krigslyckan i Stilla oceanen. Med andra ord är spelet en del taktiskt krigsspel, en...

International Review By GamePlayer on 70

Andra världskriget är utan tvekan det krig som porträtterats allra mest inom spelens värld. Otaliga gånger har vi landstigit längs Frankrikes kuster eller ryckt fram under den stekande solen i Nordafrikas öken eller...

Året er 1941 og vi befinder og på Hawaii, nærmere bestemt i Pearl Harbor. Vi følger Lt. Henry Walker og Major Donald Locklear, hvis skæbne tager en hel ny drejning denne dag. Disse 2 venner bliver for alvor den dag draget ind i 2. verdens krig, da...
