    Fun shoot 'em up but its potential is limited by generic flaws.

    Ultimately, Naval Warfare is a decent arcade shooter. Unfortunately, the storyline is confusing and the levels are inconsistent in difficulty--many levels are maddeningly easy, while others are suddenly extremely difficult. This makes for a frustratingly uneven campaign experience, and because upgrades are level-specific, there's little reason to want to replay this title. Multiplayer isn't much better, as it's limited by the fact that you're unable to make custom maps or play online.

    In a desperate attempt to stand out in a crowd of silly arcade games, Naval Warfare lost its drive as well as accessibility.

    Stunning steampunk visuals cannot cover up the horrible controls which make the boats practically unsteerable. [July 2011]

    Kind of enjoyed this short and simplistic no brainer sci-fi shooter. Can't see much replay value though so maybe one of those get it on a sale type games. Expand

    I got Naval Warfare on a Steam sale for $2.50, because that's about what it's worth. It's a fun if a bit generic arcade-style shooter with you commanding a gunship through various watery missions. The graphics are nice, and one of its finer points, but are let down by the shoddy mouse control which screams 'console port'. Control of the ship itself isn't terrible, but it's still obviously console-based. The voice acting is, for the most part, downright awful, but that's the story with many if not most video games. Overall it's a fun way to waste an hour or so, but it's not worth the $10 asking price when there are so many better games out there. Collapse

    The lack of thought and effort that went into creating this game is immediately obvious by the game loading to black screen if you have more than one monitor hooked up to your computer. The game has been out for months and the only fix available is to disable your other monitor. How I read that is, "Hey we already have your money, so why should we bother making a patch." Expand
