Midway Campaign was nominated for the Charles Roberts award (Best Computer Game) in 1980.
"Avalon Hill was an early entrant in the computer gaming field, but their initial productions, such as B-1 Bomber and Midway Campaign, were disappointing given Avalon Hill's enviable reputation in the realm of conventional board wargames. The early Avalon Hill games lacked color and were less engrossing than the company's experience in game design warranted."
