Battlestations Midway is an older game that still holds up over time. You take the role of a young navy lieutenant commanding a PT Boat during the Assault on Pearl Harbor. The campaign follows his rise to command from Pearl Harbor to the Midway campaign. For gameplay, you can command from the Tactical Map or personally take charge of the fight. Ship controls are easy enough, but the fighter controls are not the easilest to control using a mouse. The game has ship, fighter, and submarine challenges in addition to its campaign.

I recommend it for players who like military history or want a quick diversion from the real world. This ran without any problems on my Windows 7 computer, but I did not mess with the multiplayer aspect of the game.

the game is cool for army lovers and strategists but im not a fond lover of these types of games,but i wanted to add it to my collection for a goofing off experience!

Im just totally insane with creativity then walking or shooting a landmine of realisticness!
Because this game is for the realism fans not the artistic abstract mind lovers like me!

A fearless stuntwoman couldnt even handle it!Some cool attraction for others,but not for me love the burrito master!

What a really fun game. I played this on the Xbox 360 when I was younger and thought it was stupid. After getting it on sale and playing it all again, I saw that younger me was wrong.

This game is a fun way to re-live a lot of the WW2 ship battles between the US and Japan. It lets you control all types of ship classes from PT boats all the way up to the huge carriers. You can swap between ships and planes (when you can control them) to be able to do more than just sit in the water.

The difficulty scales up through the campaign fairly well. It starts you out easy but by the end, the matches can go for more than 30 minutes a level.

I would recommend getting this game if you are into WW2 history and naval combat.

Battlestations Midway was my first Battlestations game and became my top favorite game. Although the graphics might be outdated, and multiplayer is dead, the game is doesn’t lose its fun and the answer to get multiplayer back, you use GameRanger to host and join some multiplayer games. You’ll be surprise to see how many BSM lobbies there are that are open when you use GameRanger. Is it worth the time and price, of couse it’s a yes and I do recommend the game. When I played this game on Windows 8.1, I had no problem with the game, so it should work on the latest Windows operating system that’s available.

Only two hours in and already a review?
Well, the game made me laugh.

Midway is a serious game that allows you to just do anything you like: fly a plane into dogfights, order a battleship to pound your enemies or sneak around with a sub. It is an easy game to learn for the most part but hard to master. The game doesn't do much handholding because it is probably made for a time when a game came with an instruction manual as part of the package, so you either need to go to the internet or just figure out the controls for yourself and pray you get used to them before you get gunned down by a Zero or broadsided by the Yamato.

The game leads to silly moments, like I am still unable to figure out how to dive bomb a ship, so I find myself often smashing into it Kamikaze style. One hilarious moment was when I got the control over a destroyer and was told to sail to the other end of a canal. While I got attacked by planes, a battery and torpedo boats I thought, geez, lets just bomb the Japanese base to smithereens, which I proceeded to do. After returning with an seriously busted ship to the end of the canal feeling smug for wrecking the Japanese base and everything in it, I got the message that I was about to be engaged by a destroyer. The fight that ensued was totally awesome as I managed to outmanouver the enemy so it got stuck between me and the coast, forcing it to slow down and thus giving me the opportunity to give it a full load of torpedos, most of which missed, but enough hit home to sink it.

Fun game if you don't take it seriously.

I did not expect very much when I purchased this game. This game was a pleasant surprise. Although the genre is described
as action, the requirements for success are sufficient to classify Battlestations Midway as action/strategy. The ability to control
virtually every ship and aircraft in each scenario provides a variety of means to achieve the objectives. At the same time you
can control all of the action and strategy with the use of the tactical map. You have plenty of options. In addition to the
campaign, that begins with Pearl Harbor and concludes with the last two scenarios at Midway, the ship challenge, plane
challenge, and the submarine challenge will certainly test your skills as they are fairly difficult. I highly recommend this game.

This game is well worth the $1.74 on sale. You can use Evolve to play multiplayer with friends. I highly recommend it. The submarine battles are awesome, and so is being able to blow the crap out of your friends with a battleship!

Very interesting game for a great price. Nice mix of strategy and combat simulation. If you thought the campaign was easy try the several challenges. They are really hard. This is one of the few games in which I replayed the missions over and over again to fulfill all the secondary and hidden objectives.

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 is a old game, but I believe this is the best single player modern naval battle game so far. Players are able to control a abundant kinds of ships including Aircarft Carrier, Battleship, Heavy/Light Cruiser, Destroyer and even Submarine.
The campaign is a little short but interesting and challenging, movies between battles are so well-made. Besides them, there are some challenge game enriching the game content. Game control was tricky at first, but really fun to play when you manage.
Anyway, it is a great game for navy fans.

The multiplayer basically doesn't work (With Gameranger it can work) but its still a great game with a amazing campaign, where you will use airplane squadrons (Torpedoes, bombers, fighters), Battleships, Destroyers and even AIRCRAFT CARRIERS!! I just love the Aircraft Carrier gameplay where you can take control of your squadrons and your fleet itself, you can even take control of a Airfield and defeat enemy Fleets and Squadrons! Greatly recommended.
