SummaryIf you want a sub-sim and still possess a clunker (i.e., 286 or earlier), then this is the game for you.
The GoodIt gave me something to do besides homework. Of course, I did enjoy sinking ships, which was fun to do when you are 14.
The BadThe lack of AI. I quickly figured out an easy strategy for sinking ships. I'd run around, making as much noise as possible to attract the destroyers. Once I knew they were in-bound, I'd release a ton of mines as I submerged, then I waited. Given a few minutes and I had sank the entire escort force. Finding and sinking merchant ships after that was easy. Also, rescuing pilots was a very boring effort. It was a lot like trolling for fish, wandering around until the computer decided you found him.
