Informazioni sul gioco

Il re delle simulazioni di sottomarini ritorna con un motore grafico in 3D completamente nuovo, nuovi comandi per la coordinazione dell'equipaggio ed un'azione della Seconda Guerra Mondiale più realistica di sempre. La grafica in stile film, la tensione e il semplice sistema di gioco rendono Silent Hunter® III il gioco perfetto per giocatori amanti del realismo ed occasionali

  • Ambientazione realistica e coinvolgente: L'atmosfera piena di suspance include dell'acqua realistica modellata in 3D, l'alternarsi del giorno e della notte, e storici sottomarini, barche e aerei. Gli interni dettagliati dei sottomarini, i cambiamenti climatici, e gli effetti sonori coinvolgenti rappresentano al meglio le guerre tra sottomarini della Seconda Guerra Mondiale.
  • Un arsenale mortale di sottomarini e armi: I sottomarini disponibili includono quelli del tipo II, VII, IX ed XII. Prendi la mira su convogli alleati e imbarcazioni da guerra. Nel ricreare le grandi battaglie della Seconda Guerra Mondiale, i giocatori dovranno nascondersi nel silenzio sotto minacciose imbarcazioni nemiche, sparare siluri letali o salire sulla superficie ed eliminare i nemici con l'arma da coperta.
  • Campagna dinamica: Crea la tua storia navale. La tua carriera militare sarà influenzata dagli esiti delle tue decisioni, in una campagna non lineare.
  • Accessibile ai giocatori di qualsiasi livello di abilità: I giocatori avranno una curva d'apprendimento che sarà più facile d'assimilare rispetto ad altri simulatori. Usa l'accademia navale per imparare le basi. Personalizza le opzioni di realismo affinchè siano adeguate alle la tua abilità.
  • Comanda il tuo equipaggio: L'equipaggio prenderà ordini e agirà basandosi sui risultati di ogni pattuglia.
  • Modalità Multigiocatore cooperativa: Fino a massimo otto giocatori via LAN.

Are you wondering whether to buy this over Silent Hunter 4 or 5?

Although SH5 has had some substantial attention from the modding community, it still has a way to go, so I would hold off on that one.

SH4 features US Navy submarine warfare in the Pacific theatre. If that tickles your fancy it is equally as good as SH3.

SH3 features German U-boats in the Atlantic theatre in WWII. It has adjustable settings for difficulty, which the game deems "realism". These features include whether the game will just automatically lock on to a target and automatically set your torpedoes upon them, or whether you would like to do the calculations yourself. Let me tell you there is a significantly rewarding feeling when doing the calculations yourself, waiting for what seems like an eternity for the impact, not knowing whether the torpedo will hit... then you see it happen. You almost can't believe it. Such a great feeling.

This game isn't about instant gratification. There is a lot of planning involved and you will have to figure out how to best intersect with your targets' headings. It is really rewarding though, and I can't say that about a lot of games.

As far as mods, I suggest going with Grey Wolves and then heading over to subsim.com to check out what is available.

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.

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.
