Jan 31, 2011The 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.

Feb 5, 2013This is a superb representation of ships and the sea. For a very modest price it gives you virtually a professional simulator on a PC. It is demanding eg reverse docking a cross-channel ferry in the tiny harbour at Dover needs patience and practice to avoid damaging the ship or demolishing the jetty. Piloting a huge container vessel around the Sydney harbour complex demonstrates how difficult visibility is on these huge ships and how difficult it can be to manoeuvre them both turning and speed changes require careful planning. On ships with azimuth thrusters rather than rudder and screws, there is a totally new "feel" to the controls. The level of detail and the faithfulness to the reality of the ship and its handling characteristics is hugely rewarding and addictive. If you love ships, you will love the Ship Sim series there is nothing else remotely like it.
Incidently, I run win XP on a 2.7Ghz Athlon with 3.25 Gbytes of RAM and an Nvidea Geforce GTX260 and the software runs fine on this modest middle of the road box.
There is no pretence here of giving anyone an unrealistic arcade game this is the real simulation of driving and manoeuvring a ship on the ocean and in some of the world's major ports. It's a great offering well done Vstep!… Expand
