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.

Può avere un interesse limitato, ma è comunque eccellente sotto ogni aspetto.
Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
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.
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
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 But it has been rendered obsolete by time and superseded by Silent Service II.
