    An intriguing experiment that gets 2/3 of its ambitions correct, the chances that it'll appeal to war game fans and maritime aficionados are pretty strong.

    The number of crafts and items available with which to outfit your ship are nice, but the gameplay seems to keep Naval Ops on a short leash - one that will ultimately keep this title from a lot of mass-market appeal. [July 2003, p.107]

    It's an arcade game at its heart, and it's a whole lot of fun. [Aug 2003, p.32]

    I agree, it was a great game. But it does have it's flaws, for one thing the graphics are a little lousy, the controls are somewhat hardI agree, it was a great game. But it does have it's flaws, for one thing the graphics are a little lousy, the controls are somewhat hard to master and the challenges can be overwhelming. But it more than makes up for it by being stuffed with action, realistic war strategies, and a good store weaponry that's actually being built by scientists. But I personally recommend its "sequel" Warship Gunner 2, although it's controls will definitely throw you off your game with Warship Gunner 1. Full Review »

I just love it when one can build a ship how you want, then go out a blow everything else up with it, most satisfying, mabye they should re-release it with on-line capabilty so we can all have a mass brawl in the ocean! What fun that would be! Full Review »
