Better than I expected

I didn't think I was gonna like this game - mostly because I kept seeing RTS tossed around and as fun as RTS is.. it just doesnt fly well on a console and I usually end up getting frustrated rather quickly. This game is not an RTS game.. at least not in the traditional warcraft/starcraft/c&c fashion. Its way more simplistic than those games.

positives

+ The map/command screen makes commanding your units a breeze..and it makes switching between your units super easy (wish all "RTS" games had something easy like this..scrolling on a console sucks)

+ You can take over any of your units at any time..nothing like launching some fighters..then shooting at the incoming bombers with your destroyer while your planes take off..then switching to your fighters for an intense dogfight

+ Training may be boring..but the training and the first couple of missions do a fantastic job of easing you into the game and the controls.

negatives

- Could not adjust the brightness..which wasnt really a major problem..except for the cut scenes..some of them were kinda dark on my tv

- I had some major issues with the submarine controls..maybe its just me..but i found it difficult to control the subs..which sucks because thats the unit id most like to take charge of (and resurfacing for air every 5 mins is just a pain)

- Some of the missions can drag on a bit..I understand that they started you off at such a great distance at times to make you use some strategy..but seriously..sometimes it just took way longer than necessary to get into the action.

Bottom Line: Surprisingly fun gameplay. Even with the release of the sequal, the multiplayer for this game is still alive and kicking. Certainly worth a rental.

Battlestations: Midway is an exciting fast pace game that can only be witnessed by trying it out and play the game. Battlestations: Midway is a break from the shooter style game play that is so popular, but at the same time is a good game for friend and buddys to come together and play in old WWII ship to ship combat. Battlestations: Midway the same tactic's never work, so you have to change them and find a new one ever time you play. I highly recomend that fellow 360 play give this game a try and join the fight on the water.
