Zum schluß sei noch der Hinweis gestattet, daß nur sturmerprobte Kapitanos auf der Roter Oktober anhaueren sollten, denn unerfahrene Schiffsjungen dürften hier wegen des knackigen Schwierigkeitsgrdes sehr schnell ein feuchtes Grab finden...
Ocean's standard movie approach, using a familiar main game-style with a couple of sub-games recreating key scenes has been copied by Grandslam to little effect. The worst problem is the game is so dated – 'caterpilaring' through yet another horizontally scrolling shoot-'em-up soon becomes rather tedious. It also completely loses the realism which was one of the main attractions of both book and film.

Based on the Tom Clancy novel, this simulation sold well in a movie tie-in, but probably did more to turn off purchasers to the wargame genre than any other product. Slow and clumsy mechanics yielded an ultimate failure as a gaming experience.
