Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the action/strategy title from Feral Interactive, Battlestations: Midway. Set during the Pacific Theater in World War II, the game combines action and strategy for a unique single-player and multi-player experience. Here's an excerpt from the review:

You can directly control only one unit at a time in the game, meaning you leave the other units under computer AI control. When you issue orders to units on your map, they will attempt to carry them out, until you take control of them. You can order units to join up, follow each other, attack enemy units, and move somewhere or move in a path using waypoints. The key to winning the game is to properly micro-manage each unit at the right critical moment. Often you will need to take control of a torpedo bomber as it approaches its' target, or a sub as it gets close to its' target, or a ship as it engages in a critical battle. The AI does a fine job on it's own, but it just isn't smart. It is predictable and methodical, and you can easily beat a computer controlled opponent with deft maneuvering and (in the case of ships) quick damage control.
