Ultimately, Battlestations: Midway is a fairly fun gaming experience, especially for those interested in war simulators. RTS fans might find it a little simple, but might find the emphasis on action a pleasing surprise. Action fans might find the strategy a little dull, but with the simplicity of the commands they'll find themselves in the thick of the action as often as they like.

Combat just isn't that colourful. There are some nice touches, however, and seeing your tiny crewman scuttle about the decks of the boats turns the soulless iron hulks into living, breathing creatures, making their loss all the more painful. Battlestations Midway is bold, thrilling and immense, and deserves every success. The Action RTS has arrived and let's hope it is here to stay.

s it is, for all the undeniable pleasure of skimming at zero feet in a rickety torpedo bomber towards a hulking metal monster, we’re left with something too slight to sustain us. Expect cult-multiplayer status, and pray for a sequel.
