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 an 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. Battlestations: Midway supports multiplayer matches of up to eight players. Matches are team-based, beginning with each player choosing either an Allied or a Japanese starting base from a list of preset slots in the lobby. Each slot has its own unique unit or building allocation. The demo contains the multiplayer map Battle of Solomon Islands.
