I had Battlestations midway and I enjoyed the campaign but by the time I bought it there was not really anyone playing online. Battlestations pacific solved this by adding a skirmish mode to the single player. However, there still is online multiplayer which is very fun. Overall it is a good game with good graphics. It is also pretty realistic.

Battlestations: Pacific is way better then it’s older brother, Battlestations: Midway, with new Planes, new Ships and Better Graphics. In single player mode, you can play as the Americans and relive history, from the Solomon Islands, to Leyte, to Okinawa. or play as the Japanese and rewrite history, fighting “What if” battles. The mulitplayer is great, and if you don’t have many skill playing in it, you can sharpen your skills in training and skirmish. all in all, it’s a great game that can be played over and over without being boring.

If you enjoy constructing a plan of attack with your teammates and rapidly adapting once the shells start flying, you will enjoy this game. If you think the Call of Duty Modern Warfare series is the best thing ever, you will probably hate the pace of this game.
Having played Battlestations Midway, I was very pleased with the improvements to this franchise. The graphical detail and sounds are significantly improved and seem very realistic. The sheer number of units you can control (ships, subs, planes, bases) combined with multiple view points make this game the best WWII RTS/FPS combination on Xbox 360.
There is a definite learning curve for the controls and unit strengths/weakness, but once you master them, the game is very fun. Many of the negative reviews that complain about the game being dull or lacking excitement are way off base. 8 player online matches are anything but dull with dozens of ships battling for bases while squadrons of planes fight overhead. (If your idea of an exciting game is being killed 17 times in 3 minutes, then stick to MW2.)
I would have given this game 5 stars if it wasn’t for the multiplayer system. The lobby system doesn’t provide much information about other players beyond the host’s drop rate. Seeing the player’s win-loss record would be very helpful when playing with random people.
