If you can't afford it, get your parents to 'sub' you the money (hee). It's a great game, and beats having a wasps' nest fall on your head any day of the week.
The simulation has been extremely well thought out and does not appear to be flawed in any considerable respect. The campaigns are exciting and develop well as the player becomes more accustomed to the program. The main question must be how much will a submarine simulation capture people's imaginations, regardless of how well it has been implemented? I cannot help but feel that the game will have a somewhat limited appeal. However, if you have an open mind and want a challenging piece of software, then I cannot recommend this product highly enough.
Può avere un interesse limitato, ma è comunque eccellente sotto ogni aspetto.
Grafisch erreicht Silent Service nur gehobenes Mittelmaß, was auch nicht weiter verwunderlich ist, denn das Game ist ja nun bereits seit einiger Zeit in den Weltmeeren unterwegs. Die Realitätsnähe ist aber nach wie vor begeisternd; selbst an alte Tricks wie das Ablassen von Öl oder Decken haben die Programmierer gedacht. Auch der Sound kommt ausgesprochen realistisch rüber. Das Spiel bietet vor allem Anfängern einen schönen Einstieg ins Simulations-Genre, da es viele Übungssequenzen enthält, und etliche Voreinstellungen möglich sind. Aber auch fortgeschrittene U-Boot-Kommandanten werden an dem Oldie unter den „tauchenden Zigarren“ durchaus noch ihre Freude haben.
A tactical simulation of submarine warfare in
the South Pacific during World War II. Detailed
rules, historical accuracy and layers of complexity
made this simulation a necessity in
every gamer's library when it first appeared.
But it has been rendered obsolete by time and
superseded by Silent Service II.
The only complaint J have with the
game is the lack of a save game feature for
the War Patrol scenarios. Otherwise, the
game is so realistic that when you need to
go real deep to avoid some nasty depth
charges, you might actually feel the need
to swallow and pop your ears. My sub is
getting ready to pull out of the base right
now. Happy sailing.
