The game is in no way a simulator butSteel Tide is one of the few games that strikes a critical balance when it comes to realism and fun. The game is in no way a simulator but like games such as Flanker 2.5 is able to immerse without over complicated controls and physics. On top of that it's just plain fun. Your submarine is incredibly powerful and can deal with most threats easily, yet it's not over powered as the enemies often come at you in droves. There are only two major problems with the game, the first is the mini-map. while it does offer indications as to enemy locations it does not show terrain. that coupled with the relatively low draw distance means that an objective that seemed to be a straight shot is actually hidden behind landmasses you had no way of seeing. This makes navigating to objectives a tad tedious. The second problem is a product of the first and that is that the game has a tendency to lose its energy between objectives. Once on job is done and you must set out for your next way point you might as well submerge yourself and hit shift to time accelerate until you're forced to surface. But the game more than makes up for these two flaws with excellent game play in terms of weapon physics, target diversity (there may only be a few types of enemies but each one requires a different approach) and a real sense of control. All in all Steel Tide is a fun submarine based shooter, and if you enjoyed games like Comanche 4 or Battlestations: Pacific (at least the sun portions) you'll enjoy Steel Tide as well. Expand
