About This Game

Hunt, hide and kill as you take command of U.S. submarines and crews and navigate the treacherous waters of the Pacific during WWII.
Silent Hunter, the industry-leading naval warfare simulation franchise for over a decade, returns to its roots with next-generation graphical realism, immersive gameplay, innovative crew evolution and more action than ever before.
Developed by the same Ubisoft team that delivered Silent Hunter 3, the "king of sub games", to worldwide critical acclaim, the 2007 installment offers the most memorable, accessible and empowering submarine simulation experience ever.
  • Hollywood Blockbuster experience: Lifelike graphics and spectacular audio/visual effects offer an incredibly immersive gaming experience. Witness the historical accuracy and the amazing attention to detail from the breathtaking Pacific settings to the more than 75 authentic-looking war machines such as the U.S. Gato class submarine, the Japanese battleship Yamato and the H6K flying boat.
  • Large Scale Naval Engagements: Epic naval engagements can be witnessed by players either firsthand or via radio messages and orders from high command.
  • Innovative crew evolution: Earn upgrades and experience to guide the evolution path of crewmembers, making your men the most effective naval force in the Pacific theater.
  • Immersive single player gameplay: Diverse mission objectives and events combined with unique rewards make each campaign a new experience. Commandeer various U.S. submarines and progress your career as a naval officer via improved dynamic campaigns in Career Mode, or dive into 'instant actions' and single patrols for a quick fight.
  • Addictive Online New Adversarial Mode: Join forces with up to 8 friends via LAN or 4 via internet in either cooperative or adversarial gameplay modes. Scripted and generated mission types allow for epic online battles and unlimited replayability.
  • Scalable learning experience: Selectable difficulty levels allow players to choose how challenging of a simulation to play.
  • Easy to control: An upgraded and streamlined interface makes moving around the submarine and controlling it much easier than ever before.

WARNING
Steam only sells you V 1.3 of the game, even if you buy the addon too. Basically all mods require V 1.4 or even 1.5 and there is no way, at least non I found, to patch the Steam version.
Dont buy it here, get the DVD but dont buy it on steam!

Don't buy this on steam or any other download sight get the DVD, otherwise you won't be able to mod it which it absolutely needs to be a complete game as UBICRAP did not release a full game and relied on modders to do what they were apparently to lazy to do. Ohh and this game doesn't launch just hangs on startup to boot.... ohh so much fun no mods when i had it working and now won't play at all and if you try to fix it they tell you you'll have to buy the DVD version so save yourself the money and buy the DVD. Just to reiterate STEAM does not allow some of the major mods that are needed to make this game playable and complete!

A+

I have played Silent Hunter 4 more than any other game on Steam. I was obsessed with it, played it every waking hour. Read up on Submarines. Watched the six-hour cut of Das Boot twice.

I would describe it to non-submarine nerds as a slow-paced stealth game. Very methodical. You can even calculate the trajectories for your torpedoes yourself, in what becomes perhaps the most compelling educational math game of all time. The game is very narrative, and open world in nature, though said world is almost entirely endless sea. I have hounded Japanese ships off the coast of Alaska, hiding in the fog as I used hit-and-run tactics against no fewer than five enemy destroyers, ever wary of their lumbering shadows in the mist. I have stalked convoys for days on end, slowly whittling down their numbers. I have used daring tactics to great success, narrowly avoiding the avalanche of depth charges from the surface. And I have used safe, time-tested strategies only to find myself sliding into a watery grave.

The game is tight as ♥♥♥♥.
