Loads of fun!, 8 March 2008
Author: Bryce Rumbles from Baltimore, Maryland

The CGI isn't up to current standards, and they tend to flip and re-use many shots, but given that it's a History Channel production, and therefore doesn't have an HBO-sized budget, this is a very interesting and fun show.

The CGI is good and more than adequate to the task (although a scene of the carrier Akagi taking a direct hit on a Japanese plane on the flight-deck shows the plane engulfed in flames but not blown to smithereens). My only real criticism is that the narration skips a lot of detail.

Those of us who have read a lot on the Battle of Midway know Soryu was sunk a little after Kaga and Akagi, but that knowledge seems to be assumed by the writers -- of course, these first episodes focus almost entirely on USS Enterprise, CV-6, and not the battle as a whole, so maybe a "Battle 360" just on Midway would clear that up. That kind of omission is forgivable for viewers who know this stuff and just like to see things blow up (like me), but for neophytes, it may be confusing.
