Riguardo questo gioco

Battlestations: Midway è un grande gioco d'azione che ti catapulterà nel bel mezzo di incredibili battaglie aeronavali e sottomarine, da Pearl Harbor alla battaglia delle Midway. Prendi il comando di una flotta gigantesca e controlla ogni aereo, nave da guerra e sottomarino schierato in battaglia.

Battlestations: Midway unisce intensi combattimenti in 3ᵃ persona e battaglie navali su larga scala, facendoti rivivere le grandi battaglie della Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Dal caos di Pearl Harbor, agli scontri nelle Filippine, Java e mar dei Coralli, fino all'epica battaglia delle Midway.

Un gameplay innovativo che ti permette di prendere il comando di oltre 60 navi da guerra, aerei e sottomarini con una prospettiva in 3ᵃ persona. Controlla e sostituisci direttamente quasi ogni mezzo sul campo di battaglia.

Il gioco include 11 campagne su larga scala e 12 missioni aggiuntive.

Caratteristiche:


  • Battaglie aeronavali e sottomarine: ogni battaglia si svolge contemporaneamente nei cieli o sopra e sotto il mare.

  • Gli spostamenti della flotta e il singolo contributo di ogni mezzo sono fondamentali per vincere.

  • 60 navi e aerei da guerra: inclusi gli aerei da caccia Wildcat e Zero, bombardieri Dauntless, B17 e B24, le portaerei USS Lexington e USS Yorktown, e la famosissima nave da guerra giapponese "Yamato".

  • Realismo: una grafica all'avanguardia per ricreare alla perfezione l'oceano, gli arcipelaghi e gli incredibili scenari del Pacifico, effetti climatici in continuo cambiamento e mezzi e armamenti estremamente dettagliati.

  • Il gioco include 11 campagne su larga scala, 12 missioni aggiuntive e una trama avvincente.

Got this game with the Eidos Anthology sale, thought I just play this game to kill some time. Turns out this game is really additive and pretty diffcult even on the easy setting.

This review is not really much of a review. I aim this at trying to be more helpful to people who already bought the game and were disappointed.

Review part:
Play this game if you love older flight sims, naval sims, strategy and micromanagement.

Do not play this game if you expect an easy flight sim, easy RTS, easy naval sim, or easy sub sim. Nothing about this game is easy, it tries to do many things at once and does them all well. The challenge is in managing every little thing.

Me trying to be helpful part:

Tips and Tricks:
1: You have finite resources, manage them well. Use fighters as bombers by equipping them with bombs, use bombers as fighters by enabling CAP (Combat air patrol), and don't send your ships into the slaughter single file.
2: Damage control isn't a myth. There is actually a damage control screen. Pay attention to your ships issues and fix them accordingly in battle.
3: This game also has a RTS component. Use your map to issue orders. Your map is your friend, and your AI will hit more often than they miss (Excluding with free fire torpedos which are more likely to sink friendlies.)
4: You have to lead your targets and have a basic grasp of physics and timing. Physics is real in this game. Your speed, the speed of your target, and your overall range is not calculated for you excluding aircraft. Sometimes you have to shoot at open water now to hit your target 5 seconds later.
4.5: This can often be negated by aiming at the waterline on the very front of the enemy ship. This will usually make your shots hit their engine room and bring them to a full stop, or slow them down enough for your shots to hit their mag and blow them up.
5: Friendly fire is real, you can kill your own people. Do not shoot torpedos at enemy vessels that happen to be engaging friendlys opposite of you. Crossfire hurts. Hell, you can shoot down friendly aircraft with unlucky artillery blasts, you can dive bomb the plane you are flying by running into your bomb as it falls, I once had my own B-17 crew take out an entire group of my own torpedo bombers.
6: Use binoculars for everything you can, all the time, always. Just use them. They help. Seriously, use them. The things you see through called binoculars. These things you can see through, they can zoom, use them. Do it. If you don't, you have no reason to complain about missing your shots.


Upon reading the reviews, I realized that so many people dislike the game for BS reasons.

"The controls are awkward!"
That's easy to fix by hitting esc and changing your controls.

"The battles feel uneven in single player!"
They are, as they are meant to be. Do you really want a game where you *Always* have an unfair advantage?

"The graphics suck"
Keep in mind the scale of the game and its age, not to mention the price you are getting it at.

"I can't tell when my guns are reloading!"
Yes, you can. If the little green dots aren't green, either that gun is reloading, damaged, or they don't have line of sight. Yes, line of sight is a real thing, it's a real issue. Guns on the back of your ship can't shoot targets in front of you. Get sideways.

"I can't fly!"
The flight controls aren't arcade. Try to use your rudder rather than constantly banking.

"I can't shoot down enemy aircraft!"
In air to air combat: Try to attack from above. Theres a little circle to shoot at, shoot at that, not the aircraft itself.
On surface craft: There are range limitations, be sure to target them, be sure to only shoot at them when they are entering range.

That being said, the negative reviews have some good points. The story is short, the gameplay is dated, the engine is old, mulitplayer no longer has a legit existance and so on. Still, it's $7 unbundled when not on sale, and an amazing game for its price and age.

This game does a very good job of combining action and RTS elements, although there is not much for replay value and it may seem too simplified for veterans of either genre. The graphics are great, and I had no problems with the control scheme. As soon as you get used to all the controls and where everything is layed out, it becomes second nature and really fun to play.
