This game I like for how fun it is to blow submarines up and try to be stealthy but I warn you this game is really complex and takes some time just to learn how to tell if something is friend or foe but int he end its always fun to make a flying torpedo hit something so try it at your own risk :).

Edit due to its just a short review, long in depth (submarine joke) one below.

Sub command is a complex simulation game made by the people who made Dangurous Waters,Fleet Command, and 688(I) Hunter/Killer and when I mean complex I mean complex. Don't get me wrong it is a great game involving tactics, stealth, and a realistic sonar. Now there is a small campain that revolves around the 688(I) sub, the Akula and the Seawolf but I found the side missions better because they offer a wide arrange of diffrent missions and circumstances. Things that people not like about this game is the fact that its hard to read the sonar or how to acually fire a torpedo correctly, but when you acually hit your target it feels so releiving its almost something to celebrate for, though if you hear your coms say torpedo in the water and you see more blips on the sonar you start to get cold and stiff. One final thing is that this game is a precursor to Dangurous Waters so it is best to learn how to use the subarmine here because dangurous waters dosent have a interactive tutorial and you eiter have to be overwhelmed or watch videos the game wants you to watch, so its a good thing to know 6-8 buttons on the screen so you can just figure out the 2 you need. All and all this game is a great game and if you get multiplayer to work its fun freaking out your friends by firing torpedos at them and making it miss by a inch, I would buy this game and give it to a friend if it was like 49 cents or else I would buy this game for me if it was 10 or under (which I have).

Sub Command is one of the dying breed of submarine simulations on the PC, where you command one of 3 submarines trying to accomplish various missions against various enemies while trying not to kil civilians. The graphics are not that good, but then in a sub you don't really get to look at the outside. Instead, you are looking at visual representation of sound, how to interpret sonar signals, and when to employ your weapons optimally, from cruise missiles to anti-ship missiles to torpedoes to mines. And this game can be hard, as hours can go by with nothing happening, while you attempt to chase down one bit of sound that may or may not be your illusive quarry... If you have an interest in the genre, this is a must-have, despite its age.

While the graphics are dated, this submarine warfar simulation is the real deal. Game has a lot of depth (pun intended) and there are several different mission types that offer a lot of variety in gameplay.
