Ratings and Reviews
This game has nice, not great, graphics but could be better.
Accuracy of ship maneuvering is crap. I’ve never heard of a corvette doing what appears to be 30+ knots while the sub is slower than molasses. Additionally, the turning radius of these ships are ridiculous. A corvette, although fairly maneuverable, didn’t turn around its funnel. The corvettes in the game can shove a 26,000 ton ship with ease and run down the side of said ship dropping depth charges the entire time. Also, at periscope depth the corvettes should have a MORE DIFFICULT time locating the boat with ASDIC, not an easier time.
Other than the above, which makes the game inaccurate and less fun to play, it is an “ok” play, but be aware you will have a difficult time applying actual u-boat tactics because it’s just not realistic. I mean, I sunk a Queen Elizabeth class battleship with the boat’s deck gun.
This game is among my favorites. I have played for hours at a time and have several top ten petrols, so easy to master. I do have one question, after the initial convoy attack/escape, when you reengage the convoy the destroyers do not protect their convoy. They break off and race to the initial contact point, leaving the convoy unprotected! Surly the allies did not do this. I think the high scores would be a lot lower if the destroyers always stayed and protected their convoy. Just my thoughts- once again this is an awesome game! 2 thumbs up!
Add a Snorkel
Great mobile sub sim that’s a lot of fun. Would be awesome if you can add a snorkel option which will allow us to recharge batteries while submerged at periscope depth.
You can place the snorkel up/down switch in the space next to the periscope up/down switch. Thanks.
