WW2 Sub simulator
Upgraded firmware from 3.0 to 4.0 - this runs beautifully now. Have never rated any game...am too critical.
I have put in over 300 hrs playing this game...love it. I have 2 other WW2 sub simulators, this is the best.
Starts out Sep. 1939 scenario pits your sub vs small convoy firing just torpedoes - familiarize you with sub
controls (movement, dive/surface) & torpedo aim/fire. Next scenario demands you become acquainted with the deck gun destroying 2 convoys. Next scenario you must use the AA gun destroying attacking planes. Next scenario you get more into the game utilizing all your resources - you destroy escorts attacking a friendly U-boat. You must dive to periscope depth & fire torpedoes to destroy destroyers before they kill you & your friendly.
All resources available in the full blown PC version are here. I have rated the game from 1 to 10 (best):
Playability: 8 - sub simulation is the best - almost as good as PC version
Crashing: 9 - (firmware 3.0 - 3.....with firmware 4.0 - 9
Torpedoes: 9 - historically accurate...must lead target depending on distance
deck gun: 8 - closer to target the more reliable & accurate
AA gun: 10 - difficult to hit distant targets
Realism: 6 - limited Iphone resources compared to PC version
Is this an arcade shooter? NO! The 1st 3 scenarios...Yes. After that, full blown WW2 sub simulator at its best
Is this arcade shooter?: NO
I agree with users Levi and Alfrodo- this game rocks but could certainly be a little better. Overall, it's just great with the cool maps, awesome graphix, attention to detail- I love how you can see your targets sinking after you torpedo them! But it could be more difficult and last longer. More missions! Open up The Med Sea! I've finished the game twice and not even a week has passed since I bought it. During the 2nd game I made it somewhat more difficult by not upgrading to the better subs and by cruising my sub directly below the Allied ships to let them depth charge me then fighting it out right there. Again, this is a wonderful game and I hope the creators are still working on it. Buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Highly Disappointed- Crashes on Startup
I was expecting much better than this from a reputable publisher like Ubisoft. I would give this game a fair review, but how can I when I can't even PLAY it?
After starting the game, the Ubisoft logo is emblazoned proudly on the screen. This 2 or 3 second show is followed by a black screen accompanied by a bubbling water sound akin to a sinking vessel, and then immediately flashes back to the home screen.
This game is unplayable, and after seeing more reviews from users having very similar problems from quite awhile ago it is apparent to me that Ubisoft is clearly unwilling to give their customers the support they need. Highly disappointed, and will leave another review on Ubisoft's website.
Five dollars gone, what a waste...
