Battlestations: Midway Mission Pack

Eidos Interactive has released a free mission pack for Battlestations: Midway, adding five new vehicles, the Battle of Sibuyan Sea multiplayer map, and the Raid on Truk single-player map to the World War II action/strategy game. The 178.7 MB download is available on this Eidos Interactive downloads Page, and there is also a Direct2Drive version, Games2Drive version, a Macrovision Distribution Network version, and a Steam version. Word is:
Based on one of the major battles of the Leyte Gulf Campaign, the Battle of the Sibuyan Sea provides a new multiplayer experience as one of the greatest naval warfare battles in all time history – one which saw the Japanese fleet effectively destroyed in October of 1944,

The Battle of the Sibuyan Sea also allows players to command the US Fleet featuring the USS Iowa and USS Enterprise, or Japan’s finest fleet, the Kurita, featuring the super battleships Yamato and the ill-fated Musashi.

The single player battle, the Raid on Truk, is based on Operation Hailstone, a massive naval air and surface attack launched by the United States Navy against the Japanese naval and air base at Truk in February 1944. Players command the US Fleet in a four phase battle starting with a P-38 air strike leading to the command of the USS Enterprise and her fleet.

The new battles also feature a new and unique set of air, sea and underwater vehicles that challenge the player’s skills and naval strategy. The following five new vehicles will be available: the P-38 Lightning, Nakijima J1N1 Gekko, USS Iowa (BB-61), IJN Shimakaza and the Type A mini-sub.

This game was a huge waste of potential. The last half of the sp campaign all you did was stay in the strategy map mode and spam planes all over the place. Plus the game was tragically short, but if all they had was more ideas for plan spamming missions, I guess that was a good thing.

Kind of hard to believe they spent all those years developing a game that could be completed in an afternoon.

May not mean much coming from me but really the MP is a blast. I have been in games that ranged from 15 minutes to over an hour.
