Battlestations: Midway is a strategy and action game that takes place in the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II. It is clearly more than a game about blowing ships out of the water; it's a well-achieved mixture of action and real-time strategy. In the game, the player can both command his fleet assets and assume control of any one of them at will. In either the single player or multiplayer game you can start with a ship, submarine, aircraft, shipyard, airfield or a combination of any of them. In the single-player campaign, you assume the role of Henry Walker, a Navy recruit who gets to at Pearl Harbor just in time for the Japanese attack. There are 11 missions in the single-player campaign, and 10 extra challenge missions focusing on specific types of units from both the Japan and US forces. In general, the visuals look good, but they are not particularly impressive. For the most part, Battlestations: Midway looks good and runs smoothly and the sound is more than acceptable. The Iowa Mission Pack is an update which includes several new ship models, new multiplayer map, new single-player mission and five new units.
- Good update, with a lot of new ships
