Info over het spel

De koning van onderzeeër-simulaties is terug met een compleet vernieuwde 3D engine, nieuwe commando's voor de bemanning, en realistischere WO2 marine-actie dan ooit tevoren. De grafische elementen van bioscoop-kwaliteit en een simpele spannende gameplay maken dit de perfecte game voor de realisme-fanaat en de casual gamer.

  • Realistisch en indrukwekkende omgevingen: De spanning-gevulde omgevingen bevatten realistisch gemodelleerd 3D-water, dag- en nachtcyclussen, en historisch correcte onderzeeërs, schepen en luchtvoertuigen. De gedetailleerde U-boot interieuren, veranderende weereffecten en interessant opgebouwde audio staan symbool voor de perfecte WO2 marine-oorlog simulatie.
  • Een dodelijke reeks U-boten en wapens: Speelbare U-boten omvatten onder andere Type II, VII, IX, en XXI onderzeeërs. Richt op de gealliëerde transport- en oorlogsschepen. Bij het recreëren van WO2's grote scheepgevechten zullen spelers zich onder dreigende escortschepen verstoppen, dodelijke torpedo's afvuren, of boven water komen en vijanden in elkaar timmeren met het dekgeweer.
  • Dynamisch: Bouw je eigen realistische verhaal over de marine-oorlog. Jouw militaire carriëre zal beïnvloed worden door succesvolle beslissingen in de niet-gescripte en niet-lineaire WO2-campagne.
  • Voor zowel de casual als hardcore gamer: Spelers ervaren een versimpelde leercurve die veel makkelijker te volgen is dan in de gemiddelde simulator. Gebruik de marine-academie om de kneepjes te leren. Pas je omgeving aan aan hoe jij graag je gevecht speelt.
  • Commandeer je bemanning: De bemanning neemt commando's van je aan en ontwikkelen zich op basis van wat er gebeurt.
  • Co-op voor meerdere spelers: Voor maximaal vier spelers over LAN.

One of the things I demand from any game is that is draws you in & immerses you in the experience it's trying to create.

Silent Hunter 3 does that massively.

The premiss is simple; take your U-Boat out, reach a pre-determined sector by what ever course you want, patrol it & try to sink any enemy ships you find. Simple, easy to remember.

That is, until you get dud torpedoes that cheat you out of that BIG score, a swarm of aircraft just won't leave you alone by swooping down time & again, your crew are all exhausted, an escorting destroyer is determined to depth-charge you back to the stone age, sweeping over you again & again while you desperately try to contain any damage & sneak away to safety...

The game allows you to fast-forward the cruising bit, you don't strictly have to return to base once you complete your objectives, you can program each torpedoe manually or let the game manage it, manage & train up your crew, upgrade you sub, go whatever route you want, sink what you want, Silent Hunter 3 really is what ever you want it to be.

If all you want is to drool over high resolution textures & realistic faces, go somewhere else, but if you want a fairly unique, utterly immersive & tense gameplay experience, Silent Hunter 3 really is a great game. Highly recommended.

Best WW2 Submarine simulator game I ever saw.

There is a sequel, however it takes a look at the Pacific Ocean rather than the Atlantic, and the association created by making a game about German submarines in this area immediately sinks us into the movie "Das Boot".

For 2005, this game has the most depth out of all the other naval simulations that exist, and there aren't too many of them, which is quite a shame.
The game itself, is easy to learn but hard to master, especially when enabling the realism settings, such as dud torpedoes, no external camera view (meaning that you are limited to the periscope which, in terrible weather really gives you a feeling of what it's like to be in endless ocean) etc. etc.
It's a game better played with a cup of tea, prepared for hours of searching for enemy ships or convoys, planning an assault and getting away (or maybe returning). It's quite simple.
But the idea - of making ships go to the bottom (that's very well detailed as well) simply grabs my attention irreversibly.

If you're into ships, this game is one you should try.

Although it's nearly 10 years old, a marvelous mod called "The Grey Wolves" breathes some life into it, while a small but friendly community on www.subsim.com keeps this legendary game alive and sailing.

I'd say it's quite sad that we don't get these types of games more often.

Also, yes - this is probably better than Silent Hunter V at least without mods (not many of them (up to today - 23/07/2014)).

Great submarine simulator. Plenty of free mods available @ subsim.com. Good interface. Personally, I prefer SH4 Wolves of the Pacific better, and both of these games are more fun to play than SH5. But for only 30 bucks, you can buy all 3. Even better if you get them on sale.

SH3 is one of those games that you need to invest time in. It is a perfect example of a "Dad game," as Yahtzee Crowshaw once put it. It's meticulously detailed, and you must learn all of the different eccentricities of the sub to be a great captain.

It uses the real-life technological limitations from WWII to define the gameplay. Want to fire off a torpedo? A standard gas-powered torpedo leaves a trail of bubbles in the water, which ships can detect in advance and will swerve to avoid your torpedo. You can fire an electric torpedo, but you'll need to be close, or else the battery in the torpedo will die and it won't reach your target. SH3 is filled with these sorts of tactical nuances that really make it satisfying to play.

Difficulty is customizable. It can be as simple as "point the periscope at a target and shoot," to manually identifying and anaylizing your target's position relative to your own. Difficulty is increased by making the game more akin to real life (limited air, limited fuel, no periscope stablilization, etc.) This helps tremendously, since beginners can relax the difficulty while they familiarize themselves with the ships' systems.

The player is awarded more renown following a mission with high difficulty, compared to a mission with a lower difficulty setting. Renown is SH3's version of experience points. It allows you to 'purchase' upgrades for your sub like improved batteries, hydrophones, conning towers, or even a completely different sub altogether. Medals are awarded after each mission, which you can assign to your crew. This is probably the single most satisfying part of the game; the medals allow your crew to function more efficiently, thus improving things like torpedo reload times.

There's a lot to cover here, so let me just wrap this this up by saying that this is probably the best simulation game I've ever played. I find myself coming back to it every couple of weeks. It's aged quite horribly, but I don't care, since the gameplay is just too good. Forget the sequels in this series, SH3 is the best.
