About the Game

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

I found this game to be identical to Janes Fleet command except for the fact the graphics are different, fleet command had a fast forward button, and some other minor differences.
