I spent about 2 hours playing this with a couple friends today, and as another review had said, it is autistically fun. Playing the "World Leaders" mode is absoutely the most hilarious thing I've experienced in a videogame thus far. Becoming George W. Bush and being assigned to take out Margaret Thatcher, you just can't beat. On a satisfaction scale from Fruit Stripe gum to a guilt free blowjay, I give this game a "Sneeze that's been holding back for half an hour".

Haha, this game will wear on your soul ! the ultimate in trolling at times. The game aspect is just like Assasins Creed multiplayer , you have a set target, kill the target , pick your weapon of choice, but also keep in mind , you cant just kill them at anytime, pick the timing when you arent being watched!Bottom line is this game is fun in multiplayer but if you intend on single player its not as fun, but has a interesting quest dialog, easter eggs and storyline.

Turn Clue into a first-person shooter on 1920's era luxury liners, sprinkle in bits of The Sims, and you've got The Ship. Instead of having to uncover a killer, The Ship makes you the killer. To be more specific and familiar to the gaming audience, The Ship is a very polished and creative take on the Assassin's Creed Multiplayer experience (but also keep in mind that this game came before the Assassin's Creed Multiplayer genre was released)....where the main gameplay mechanic revolves around finding your target, called your quarry, and breaking their face as stealthily as possible. To do so, there are plenty of lethal weapons and objects to wield, and even some environmental traps that you will find yourself potentially avoiding. To add flavor, everyone else on each map has a quarry as well. While pursuing your own target, you'll need to stay alert and attempt to spot the passenger readying a knife for your back. The Sims element of the game, quells upon your daily needs to survive (food, drinks, toilet, sleep, etc). The 'character's needs' element makes for a deeper gameplay experience, as your character is vulnerable to attack while you're downing a bag of chips or snoring on a bed. And it is surely funny when your friend murders you on the toilet. The Ship is one of very few games that brings a large amount of enjoyment to my friends and I. Built on Valve's Souce engine, a majority of gamers can experience a $20 title with basically 4 copies to gift away. A little too much? Ask four of your friends for $4 each, and your all set! Overall, The Ship is a very innovative, satisfying and humorous experience that a bunch of 5 friends can't pass up. "Let us set sail!."
