So very nearly awesome
Two words. 'Draw distance'. Ships can (and do) appear and disappear at around 3000 yards. Not fade in or out, just not be there then suddenly there. It makes some attacks massively frustrating. You know there are six ships and five escorts, but the viewing distance is only letting you see three or four ships. So down to 5 torpedoes you take the shots, three torpedoes away and suddenly, boom, a battleship appears in the periscope, large as life and 3000 yards away, but not enough torpedoes to sink it. Had you seen the ship you could tailor your attack better and take that one rather than the piddly targets. Maybe its beyond the ipads abilities for the draw distance, perhaps a clue to the convoy configuration when the game prompts a convoy found? Other than that (admittedly huge) issue, the game plays well and is good fun to play. Though somehow the destroyers know EXACTLY where you fired from when you hit a ship. It could be less interesting if they didnt know, but it does 'feel' off. All that said, I keep coming back to play it so it must be good.
A great submarine game
I really enjoy sub sims and played silent hunter till my eyes bled and this is really good. The targeting is a little to simplified for my liking and it would be great if there was an option to increase the realism and I don't just mean make it harder to play but make the game deeper. Also I would like to be able to have the option to continue to patrol at sea after an attack rather than always have to go to map view. Some external camera options would be great as the ships sink it's always very rewarding to watch the tankers sink. This is a great game if you like this sort of thing, if anyone reviews this as rubbish or a waste of money it's simply because they don't like subsims and really shouldn't have purchased it. I also really like the fact that you buy the game and play it, no messing around with upgrades and additional purchases. Well done to the developers it's a cracker.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed
This is an excellent game that is in between arcade and simulator. The graphics are good, the explosions are great, but what really makes this game stand out is the immersion, you can really feel a sense of tension with the sounds of the sub creaking and groaning as you dive to its limits with depth charges exploding above while you're willing the repairs to be carried out before you sink. And with the random mission generator, it keeps you coming back for more. This is one app that I've never regretted paying £4.99 for, worth every penny.
