While each game style has obviously been influenced by previous releases, they have all been competently produced and all come together to make a polished consolidated package.

Zum schluß sei noch der Hinweis gestattet, daß nur sturmerprobte Kapitanos auf der Roter Oktober anhaueren sollten, denn unerfahrene Schiffsjungen dürften hier wegen des knackigen Schwierigkeitsgrdes sehr schnell ein feuchtes Grab finden...

Following the excellent movie comes Grandslam's attempt at a second game, this time aimed straight at the arcade crowd with some very standard sub-games (I don't believe I said that). There's variety but nothing in this mish-mash of game ideas that you wouldn't find in budget games, and completing it on your first go isn't exactly good for lastability.

Ocean's standard movie approach, using a familiar main game-style with a couple of sub-games recreating key scenes has been copied by Grandslam to little effect. The worst problem is the game is so dated – 'caterpilaring' through yet another horizontally scrolling shoot-'em-up soon becomes rather tedious. It also completely loses the realism which was one of the main attractions of both book and film.

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.

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???
