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.

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.

Some people say that this game is for adults only. Well, I'm 14 years old, and I LOVE it. It's graphics may be dated, but It's a brilliantly detailed game, made by people who care deeply (pun not intended) about the subject. If you want a game that tests you in a unique way... BUY THIS GAME.

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 to check out what is available.

At first glance, this game seems like a waste of money perhaps. Grahpics aren't anything special, and the aspect ratio is small. But, then you play the game a little longer, it begins to grow on you. The way you can customize the realism of what it was like to plot at the open seas, in a submarine. The way you plot how you will bring down your enemy. The action, the thirll and the temptation overwhelms you. But then, you begin to play even longer. Your palms sweaty, your back stuck to the seat. You begin to wonder just what, Silent Hunter III trully is.
