    Most importantly, it does what it does well, and except for the lack of a printed manual and more help for learning strategies, is a worthy tribute to the lost Jane's Combat Simulations brand.

    No quarter has been spared in delivering one of the most detailed and complex representations of modern sub warfare ever for the PC. [Holiday 2001, p.88]
  3. One of those rare and delicious projects that's 90 percent simulation and 10 percent game. Although it may be the last of a dying breed--it's hard to imagine Sub Command being commercially successful--it is heaven-sent.
  4. It's an underwater chess match that builds up to maybe only one chance to shoot. Some missions don't even allow you that...[It's] polished and thoroughly engaging, and the real audience for this game—you know who you are—won't be disappointed.

    This is a realistic simulation, unashamedly difficult to master, but offering the kind of satisfaction that only comes from conquering a difficult challenge. [Mar 2002, p.78]

    Don't listen do David, he was expecting probably some Call of Duty underwater sub kill fest. Plus, David, its not about the graphics.Don't listen do David, he was expecting probably some Call of Duty underwater sub kill fest. Plus, David, its not about the graphics. Now, the graphics arnt that good but they don't kill the game. SubCommand is one of the most realistic modern day subsims out there. If you like Subsims, get this. If you like action-packed-adventures, go play Hello Kitty.... Full Review »

    It takes some time to understand all the functions and weapons but the game is really interesting ...
    I just don't give a 10/10 because I believe it should have more tutorials, easyer access to control panels and some graphics improvements ....
    But the game is excelent !
