    few hours of action. Nice for one day.

    I just bought it today. Few hours in the afternoon and few during the night, and i'm done with the campaign, lol. Yes, it's only about 7 hours of gameplay for the US camp.....I wouldn't buy it if i knew it. I really wish... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:6.1

    No re-playability.

    Save your money. This game suffers from several major flaws: short campaign, no sandbox mode, no scenario editor, and very limited joystick compatibility (try going from Microsoft Flight Simulator X to flying with a mou... Read Full Review

    Not as what I imagine before!!!

    Sometimes when you look in commercial, it will more value the game rather than you try it by your self! This game have a difficulties in controling the ship, esp. airplanes! Maybe when you mean to play as pilot, you n... Read Full Review

    "Battlestations: Midway strikes just the right balance..." Sure thing, if you're an octopus.

    The thing that Battlestations Midway (BSM) and octopusses have in common is the sheer number of limbs required to have fun, roughly around 8 i'd estimate for BSM while knowing nothing about octos. I do know however, t... Read Full Review

    Easy to play, fun to play and way too short.

    I really enjoyed this one. Sure the graphics are no Silent Hunter 4 and it is arcade play and not sim and the cut scenes are way better than game play and...and...and. But it was easy to manage everything just with my ... Read Full Review

    Jogo muito bom, diferente do usual, poderia ser um pouco mais longo no single-player.

    Uma boa supresa em termos de simulatores de batalhas, parece um dos simuladores mais abrangentes, e com a maior imersão que já vi, otimo jogo aonde colocar o jogador no comando direto dos navios, submarinos... Read Full Review

    The basic concept is enjoyable: but the execution isn´t even half-assed

    I thought that the concept was so good they could not possibly fudge this one up, but they did. Simply puy you get very little to play with: a few missions with a carrier or a battleship. Throw some planes in... and t... Read Full Review

    Impressive Game

    I have to say I had low hopes for this game, but the more I played the more the game entertained me. Sure the missions can be long and one false step can lead to an hour of progress to be wasted. But if you drill through... Read Full Review

    Horrible Support!

    Eidos has horrible support for the game. I have an error while installing the game and I have had a support ticket submitted for a week and they still haven't gotten back to me. Horrible Support! They haven't even posted... Read Full Review

    So much potential - So little delivered!

    I have always enjoyed sea battle sims that were more game than simulation. Harking back to Jutland for sheer playability yet challenging (you run everything) like Harpoon. That was the mix we seemed promised here... wi... Read Full Review
