A totally enjoyable simulation of contemporary attack submarine operations in the "Next War." Although some purists decry certain design decisions (made for playability), this reviewer considers the game to be one of the best on the market.
Ein besonderes Lob verdient die Anleitung, die auf über 150 Seiten alles Wissenswerte erläutert. Red Storm Rising ist somit kein Sturm im Wasserglas: Wer über die abstruse Hintergrundgeschichte hinwegsehen kann, findet eine einzigartige Mischung aus Realismus und Hochspannung!
The numerous missions to be undertaken are all up MicroProse's usual high standards. Though the standard inch-thick instruction manual also rears its head, a quick thumb through is sufficient to shove you in the right direction, and from then on the action grabs and fails to let you go until you have single-handedly ended the conflict. A must for all arcade/strategy fans.
Power Play (Aug, 1989)
Wen‘s nicht stört, daß die Amerikaner hier prinzipiell gut und die Russen ganz furchtbar gemein sind, bekommt eine U-Boot-Simulation erster Klasse geboten - spannend wie ein guter Film.
