  • Summary: Have you ever wondered how it feels to sail a half-million ton supertanker through the perfect storm or to take on illegal whale hunters in the Antarctic? Feel the rush of serving as a coast guard as you evacuate an island threatened by a volcanic disaster. With missions based on actual events that take place in realistic environments and locations from all over the world, Ship Simulator Extremes has you endure extreme conditions, fight the elements and face all of the challenges associated with being a ship captain.

  1. The "extreme" scenarios help make the game more exciting, rather than just sailing from point A to point B, though newcomers will have some trouble knowing how to operate everything, since a tutorial is nowhere to be found.
  2. Lots of bugs and some major gameplay faults do not permit Ship Simulator Extreme to be anything more than a whole of many boats and missions.
  3. Ship Simulator Extremes suffers from an out-dated look and a disappointing lack of technical depth. The attempt to appeal to a wide audience fails due to the mediocre implementation of both ship simulation and compelling action.
  4. If you're not a faithful fan of the series or a hardened sea dog, you shouldn't consider the purchase of Ship Simulator Extremes. The integration of PhysX (simulation of water and your ship) is well done, but for this special feature you'll need a really powerful gaming rig in order to play smoothly. Graphics are quite good concerning the realization of water and your ship, but the rest couldn't really convince us. There are still too many bugs and a lack of sound effects in the game to give Ship Simulator Extremes a better result.

    Extremes is a very good sim althought v-step have problems with the release of this latest release
    they are working hard to make the sim
    everthing the player exspects from the game.
    They have allready released 2 patches for the game and are still working to get the sim on track
    witch is more than some company's do .
    So for me this is one of the best ship simulator's uot and can only get better Sadsid

    The review that stated "though newcomers will have some trouble knowing how to operate everything" may have been correct, but there is no excuse not to purchase this game now. Besides, there are more walkthroughs and helpful tips now than back in August.

    p.s. It's 65% on Steam.

    Would be a good game but the computer required to play this game smoothly has to be very good, even running a 6g ram i3 core laptop isn't enough to play this game on low quality smoothly. This game is very realistic. As long as you have a really good computer then this isbe a very good game for anyone who likes simulation games, if you don't then you may find this game boring.

    a good or bad game depending on what games you enjoy playing and how good your computer is.

    This has to be the most disappointing purchase in many years for me.

    The game lacks any kind of depth and is unashamedly a "work in
    progress". You have a small selection of ship types and tiny areas to play with the boats in.

    The only controls you have is steering, thrusters and speed. All of the detailed controls are images only and you can't interact with them.

    Rarely do I feel as ripped off as I do with this game - there's just nothing to it. I have seen more realistic iPhone Ship games than this. To call it a simulation is a downright lie.
