Over dit spel

Strategic and tactical battles for world domination on, under and above the open sea. Take command of the contemporary navies and air forces of all the powers in the North Atlantic region to defeat your enemies.

Naval War: Arctic Circle is a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game where the player battles enemy naval and aerial forces for power and ultimate world domination. The game includes real units from the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, Russia, the Scandinavian countries and others. The game play takes place along the Norwegian and British coast, through Iceland and Greenland all the way to the North Americas and the North West Passage.

Naval War: Arctic Circle has two full campaigns along with skirmish missions and online competitive play. Ultimately, Naval War: Arctic Circle tells a story about a power struggle for control of the world’s resources and supply lines in the Polar Regions.

Key features:

  • Two campaign modes, telling a narrative from Russian and NATO sides
  • On-line play through LAN as well as over the Internet
  • Enormous area of game play space, with over 35 million square km of open sea and coast line
  • Extreme long range guided and self-guided weaponry; if you can detect the enemy, it will be possible to strike
  • Vertical game play, from orbit aerial units to the bottom of the ocean floor using a seamless zoomable map of the entire North Atlantic Ocean
  • Detection and evasion focus with realistic sensory measures and countermeasures yielding a strategic game experience based on stealth rather than head on tactical battle
  • Great detail in unit management with fewer but more powerful units making selection and management more distinguishable and less cluttered with an unparalelled level of individual detail
  • Realistic weather model, with real world implications for tactical and strategical deployment of resources at hand
  • Real world units, with all major powers surface, subsurface and aerial units, both contemporarry in service, as well as experimental and on the drawing board

This game is not for everyone, but for those who have a serious interest in military equipment, tactics, and strategy (especially sea and air based), this is more than worth the £15, and unlike its competitors, it has multiplayer.

Notice that most of the ""helpful"" negative reviews were from people with less than 4 hours gameplay. They are gamers, not simmers, who picked the sim up for novelty, not love of military simulation.
(The ones from people with more gameplay is usually due to PC issues)

NOTE: This game requires a powerful CPU! There is a lot of simulation going on, and if your PC is weak, you will experience freezes. The system requirements listed above are way too low.

What I Like
> Intuitive, easy to use interface
> Great solid simulation of ships, submarines, aircraft, missiles, and weapons
> Scenario editor and workshop integration
> Potential for modding (I'm working on one)
> Smooth realtime, not interval based like competitors
> Functional multiplayer
> Most, if not all, bugs were fixed in patches

What I Don't Like
> Limited range of units
> The map is only Northern Europe, Greenland, and Eastern Canada. Nothing south of Belgium
> In some places, realism is sacrificed for balance
> Limited default scenarios (but there are lots on Steam workshop)

What I Don't Mind, But Other People Might not Like
> Rare freezing (temporary, usually 15 seconds or so) when lots of units being simulated
> There is no savegame function (GET OVER IT PEOPLE. JUST GET OVER IT!)
> 3D graphics are simplistic (it's a £15 SIM, not a flashy £50 game!)

Conclusion: DO NOT BUY unless you love modern miltiary strategy/tactics. It's niche as niche can be, NOT for everyone, but if you're an armchair admiral, you'll love NWAC.

I like the game. Try out the demo and see for yourself.
Unique kind of gameplay.

Needs a bigger tutorial
I want to turn all radar on at once. Not clicking on every unit each time.
Maybe another military faction.
Best option is to buy it at a "STEAM SALE" for around 6-10 Euro/Dollars.

I really thought the game was actually pretty good. Unfortunately that was on the rare occasion that I could finish an hour of play without it freezing, stuttering or crashing to the desktop... and I have a high end machine. I wouldn't mind having the no "in game save feature" as strategy games feel more challenging without that.... but then again... it would be nice if I could pick up where I left off after the game crashed over and over. It has potential, but I can't recommend it until they fix these issues.

Would be a good naval sim simliar to harpoon, except for the small fact there is a crash bug in the game code. Basically, even if you are running one of the most powerful rigs in the northern hemisphere, i seriously doubt you can play later missions without frequent crashes. Couple that with NO save feature, wasted potential is all I can say Naval War Arctic Circle is.

Buggy game, bad interface, quirky unit behaviors, no support.
Better off playing the older Fleet Command game which, despite its age, is FAR superior.

I understand what the developers were trying to achieve with this game and I applaud their efforts. That being said, I can't in good faith ever suggest that this game be purchased by anyone. If you really want a properly made naval simulation (with better graphics and depth) I suggest you check out Dangerous Waters.

Reminiscent of the Harpoon naval simulation games of old, this is a top product in that vein, being able to control any number of units available in NATO and Russian arsenals in several different Third World War scenarios, with accurate representation of weapon range, ship and aircraft range, and performance.
While the graphics aren't the most current or "next-gen", they do convey the action on the screen in an easily understandable manner.

Lots of potential for the naval fleet command crowd, but the game is unfinished-- and will never be finished.

The fate of the developers remains a mystery, but it could be assumed that the Paradox men caught up with them and threw them out of a plane into the frigid north Atlantic.

Buggy game with a lot of wasted potential. Developer pretty much abandoned the game citing lack of profitability which led to Paradox "discontinuing further development."

Unfinished, broken garbage. Should not be on the Steam Store. As a Harpoon player, incredibly disappointing.

Completely broken and unfun. Swarm missiles unti you sink a boat. Barely any maneuvering or thought required.

cool game with accuate tech and specs. make sure you have a computer capable of processing the game before you get it. and make sure you have a fan strong enough to cool down your laptop if you use one otherwise your computer will surely overheat. controls are a little confusing at first, but the more you play arround with it the easier it will become to navigate through your options.

This game had issues, was a derivative of Dangerous Waters, and was abandoned by the game developers.

Naval War is naval strategy game. Which is kind of small niche that already has the Harpoon games and Fleet Command. I never played one of those so I can't compare them. But these games you either like or don't like. What I really disliked about Naval War is the horrible User Interface. Also the resetting of the gamespeed every time a event occurs is really annoying.

Crap game is crap. Don't spend a penny on it. You can't even save your mission and come back to it later, so you're ♥♥♥♥ed if the game crashes, WHICH IT USUALLY DOES.
