  • Summary: Enigma: Rising Tide melds cinematic pacing with immersive graphics to produce the world's first alternate history, naval warfare, vehicular shooter game in an online, persistent, action-packed, 3-D setting. Command a variety of surface ships and submarines. Sail with and against thousands of other players, deploying deck guns, torpedoes, hedgehogs, and depth charges. Communicate with your teammates in encrypted chat channels, evade deadly torpedo aircraft, and pluck salvage from the wreckage of enemy vessels. Pit your destroyer against enemy wolfpacks, or stalk fat merchantmen from the murky depths. Every three months following release, you get free expansions to the game, including new vehicles, additional features, and dramatically enhanced gameplay. [Tesseraction Games] Expand

  1. I haven't enjoyed a naval simulator this much since "Silent Hunter II." A great title!
  2. The game is immensely playable and re-playable, guaranteeing the player a new experience each time the game is played. [Gold Ed.]
  3. 85
    Offers great naval combat for the novice yeoman to the retired navy general. If you enjoy a realistic atmosphere and high energy combat, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
  4. 78
    Gliding across the sea watching numerous other ships and submarines firing at each other with planes flying overhead is great, and adds to the tension and representation of World War II.
  5. It's hard not to enjoy Enigma. Streamlined but not dumbed down, the game captures the exciting feel of WWII naval combat even if it ignores many of the details.
  6. Some deliciously well-rendered visuals have been used to re-create each of the 16 warships and submarines you control, and the ocean effects - which range from gentle swells to full-blown gales - are so convincing that you may find yourself reaching for Dramamine. [June 2003, p.68]
  7. For now this feels like a course at the naval academy while you wait to get out to sea. [Aug 2003, p.87]
