Battle For Midway

You can recreate this famous Pacific air and naval battle from the second world war and probably manage to change the final outcome. You control five basic units, two aircraft carrier forces, two search units and the island of Midway itself. The Japanese are the opponents and control three fleets of ships.

Attacks are shown on screen where you can use a deck gun to shoot aircraft if you wish. Naval attacks are also shown on screen but are always disastrous for the US forces.

Good News

P. Accurate reproduction of events.
P. Quick thinking and command needed.
P. Different levels of play and speed alter the tactics required.

Bad News

N. Not too difficult to win.
N. The Japanese are slightly too predictable.
