Battlestations: Midway lands on 360 this Fall


Think of the gaming industry's numerous World War II titles as a squadron of circling Zero fighters waiting to get blasted out of the sky by discriminating consumers. Eidos' recently announced entry, due this Fall, doesn't skimp on the Zeros and throws in some submarines for good measure.

"Battlestations: Midway offers players a refreshingly new and exciting gaming experience, whilst maintaining an incredible level of detail which recreates the intensity and atmosphere of the Pacific War. The ability to jump from a raging dogfight to the deck of a destroyer, with the crew frantically running about around you on deck, to the silence of a prowling submarine provides a unique and at times breathtaking experience. And, of course, watching your mate's aircraft carrier sink past your sub after a sneaky online torpedo attack is extremely satisfying!"

Call it Battlefield Too. I always wanted my own aircraft carrier.

1. How many more WWII games will we have to put up with? It seems like every day there is another game based off WWII being announced. I'll reserve judgement for later, but I have my doubts about all these games, unless their name starts with "Call of Duty."

2. WWII games are generally entertaining, but unfortunately they wont help to sell consoles in Japan.


....For obvious reasons...

3. Sounds like a naval version of Battlefield. Sounds fun. If someone team kills, can you make them walk the plank? Arrrr!

4. We nuked Japan during WWII. America almost single handily destroyed an entire nation during this period. The devestation that occured has yet to be equalled.

5. Yeah, we are real sorry about that. We were kind of drunk, and they were being a real bitch. Shooting at us and blowing our stuff up and shit.

6. This game seems exactly like BLAZING ANGELS SQUADRONS OF WW2 which is already availble on the Xbox 360.

7. Yeah Japan was such a good world citizen at the time. Laying waste to China was really a misunderstanding. Hirohito should have been hung at Trial and not allowed to remain as a Constitutional Monarch.
