  • Summary: A 3D naval combat simulation which gives you command of a WWII era destroyer in the US Navy in either the Atlantic or Pacific Theaters. You can advance to command a division of destroyers and will participate in a variety of naval actions against Axis forces. You will stalk U-boats, swat Kamikaze planes, escort convoys, blast enemy ships in surface actions or pound the beaches in support of infantry landings. [Ubi Soft] Expand

  1. A niche of WWII naval sim gamers will find this game simply awesome. Where the game lacks in eye candy, more than makes up in strategy re-playability, and realism.
  2. About as deep and immersive as naval combat sims come. [May 2002, p.68]
  3. Ubisoft captured all of the elements needed to control a WWII era destroyer except what it might actually feel like to command one.
  4. The incredibly stupid AI is also a big problem since it is hard to overlook the mechanical flaws when the gameplay is only moderately engaging.
  5. Mediocre graphics, poor design choices, and unfinished features sink what could otherwise have been a fine game.
  6. There are bugs and crashes to contend with, the crossover with Silent Hunter II is non-existent, and the learning curve will leave you panting if you’re new to the simulation scene.
  7. Sometimes software is released in such a wretched state that the developers may as well just come to your house and kick your dog for $40...This is a blatant and insulting instance of a game released too early to the detriment of the people who buy it.

    It really makes you feel like a captain in a destroyer.

    A good game, but could do with a bit of work.
