  • User Rating:8.5

    Great for aficionados, interesting for newcomers, and the best console strategy game I've played.

    This is a great game for the history buffs. Although some may dispute the historical accuracy of enormous battleship-on-battleship barrages, or the overuse of the experimental fighters in skirmish, this is at least compr... Read Full Review

    The first one remains, in my mind, a better tacital wargame.

    The sad thing there is that i was really looking forward to Battlestations Pacific, but i cant help feeling disappointed. Battlestations Pacific takes apart some of the main reasons i found Battlestations Midway a good ... Read Full Review

    Midway was good, but short, this is more of an excellent game, with more content. Very nice.

    From the game play perspective, not a lot has changed since BattleStations Midway, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. My only issue with Midway was that it was too short, and there weren't enough multi-player maps.... Read Full Review

    Finally True Dogfighters.

    Finally a true dog fighter, I mean the fact that you have to get close enough for guns and not fire a missile from 5 miles away. I love Ace Combat but I have always wanted a dog-fighter like this ever since I saw the sho... Read Full Review

    I like shooting big guns and there's nothing like shooting a 15" salvo from an Iowa class battleship. I played Battlestations:Midway but Pacific is a great improvement. First of all, there is no cheesy story line of t... Read Full Review

    Don't be fooled by the demo!

    The air missions are great, but unfortunately they aren't the focus of the game at all (despite being almost all of the demo. Most of the time you will be control ships that move across your tv screen at about 1 inch per... Read Full Review

    High seas arcade adventure

    I played the demo of Battlestations Midway ages ago and being a military history student thought i'd give this a go. I saw the posts of various forums advising people to rent before they buy and foolishly didn't heed th... Read Full Review

    Best WW2 comabt sim there is

    This and it's predecessor (Midway) are hidden gems. There are a number of WW2 air combat sims out there, and while they are ok to play for an hour or two, they quickly become tedious. Battlestations has a solid air-com... Read Full Review
