Battlestations Midway (xbox 360) Preview




Xbox 360 version, due January 30th in US and currently on retail shelves in Europe, Battlestations: Midway follows the story of naval recruit Henry Walker, whose first assignment as a gunner at Pearl Harbor is the starting point of an incredible career at the heart of the US Pacific Fleet in 1942, in what was to become one of the most inspirational military campaigns in history.

Promising a blend of 3rd-person action with, large-scale naval combat, the game attempts to bring to life the great Pacific battles of World War II. From the chaos of Pearl Harbor, through the Philippines, Java and the Coral Sea all the way to the epic Battle of Midway.

Preview summary
"The in-game environments are as lush and lovely as you'd expect, with all sorts of weather effects and lots of detail, and visual flourishes include a camera that follows bombs and torpedoes after you've fired them"... full preview from Eurogamer

"Like a chess-match with guns. While the graphics still need some work, this is a solid strategy game that RTS fans and action fans will enjoy alike." full preview from IGN
