The Hunt for Red October has an excellent, user-friendly, speed orientated command entry system - if marred by a slightly sluggish response and flicker)' pointer - and polished front -end to a complex and compelling game. It is one, however, for the serious strategist rather than the casual gamester. With the SAVE/LOAD game position options, single games could go on for weeks.
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.
Uralte Story, uraltes Gameplay gepaart mit einer Grafik. die man auf dem C-64 noch durchgehen lassen konnte, die aber für die beiden anderen Systeme nur das Prädikat „mangelhaft“ verdient hat. Dazu kommen dann noch Ladezeiten ohne Ende, wobei man sich nur fragen kann, was denn da geladen wird, denn das bißchen müßte doch eigentlich auf einmal zu laden sein. Ein Game, das weder U-Boot-Atrnosphäre noch Spaß aufkommen läßt und zu einem solchen Preis .... was soll das???
