Computer Gaming World (CGW)
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.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
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???
