    A sweeping 360-degree look at your boat and its surroundings adds much to the immersive quality -- a quality that is sorely needed in other departments of the sim.
  2. Gameplay is great, the graphics are fine (without being jaw-droppingly good), the presentation is good and the difficulty level can be tweaked to your exact specifications.

    Although SH2 can’t be considered complete until the release of Destroyer Command and multiplayer support, what’s here is very good indeed. [Feb 2002, p.91]
  4. While this game is enjoyable, interesting, clever and even educational, its realism may be its weak point. If I haven’t impressed upon you enough, it’s a slow evolving, deliberate game requiring patience and intelligence.
  5. Without a more involving campaign mode, with these glaring gaps in realism, and with this lackluster graphics engine, a lot of these fans are bound to be disappointed.
  6. All the missions are canned—there are no random missions thrown into the mix. If you fail the main objective of the mission, you get to repeat it again and again until you complete it.

    The dated technology and lack of features -- most importantly, the unchanging, scripted campaign -- kills the longevity of what might have been a breath of fresh air in the simulation scene.

    It is good gaming with SH II. Though in scenarios a bit limited even with the scenario builder.
