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!

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.

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.

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.

Pretty cool game that mixes RTS and action together ultimately leading up to the Battle of Midway during World War II. You can take command of any unit at anytime which puts you right in the thick of the battle. Campaign is pretty short that only lasts a few hours and there a few additional challenges after that.

This game, even though the servers were shut down. Is very enjoyable, I often find myself constantly playing the last mission and using different tactics. I would highly recommend it. <3

Wanted to buy this game when it first came out in the stores, but didn't.

Thanks to Steam, I am enjoying it this very day. Much better than the box lead me to believe back in the day.

Highly recommend this game.

The most polite way to put it is that I don't dislike this game. The graphics are decent, the cut-scenes are well done, and the first couple of missions really pulled me in and captured my excitement. But as the game story progressed, the excitement quickly wore off leaving me uncommitted to continue. Each battle became frustratingly harder, even with the difficulty setting on easy. There was no ability to save the game mid-mission which left me with a lingering bitterness every time I had to restart (which was quite often). A worthy attempt, but the developers just couldn't close the deal for me making it a tolerable air/sea shooter at best.

Best Naval Action game going. Unique in that you can be the pilot of a fighter in air-to-air combat, switch to be the captain ofa a cruiser, switch to be the pilot of a torpedo bomber, then to control the flight deck of a carrier, and then to a map to issue commands to anyone & everyone. All this while you start to attack or as the battle rages. Based on real battles in the Pacific Theater during WWII.

Midway owns a special area in gaming, putting you in the Pacific theatre of WW2 and offering you all of the sea/air machines involved on both sides. It does this with more scope than BF1942's gameplay, and is more arcade balanced than a serious simulator. That's not to say it's devoid of tactics/management, and a need for well timed accuracy and judgement. It's a game far from perfect in it's execution, having a limited amount of freedom by limiting itself to set campaign missions and a few challenges. It lacks singleplayer skirmishes, which multiplayer makes up for as being the most engaging multiplayer I've experienced in a game(if you can find anyone online). Overall it's a game simple in design and full of charm. I come back to it for that feeling of being in a torpedo bomber alongside my AI wingmen, getting as close as I can to the battleship that's about to ruin my mission, knowing I can't afford to miss, and might get shot down if I get too close. The entire battle hangs on those few seconds of judgement.
