About This Game

“Steel Ocean” is a free-to-play, MMO shooting game. As a navy commander, you may choose 6 types of warships used in the World War II to fight the 16vs16 battles. Start the voyage with your warships and fight for the honor of your fleet!


Game Features:
Essence of team play: Tactics first
  • 6 warship types and over 100 famous warships with distinctive features.
    Steel Ocean presents the 6 most representative warships of the modern and contemporary naval system, namely, destroyer, light cruiser, heavy cruiser, battleship, carrier, and particularly the “deep sea killer” – submarine, appearing for the first time.

  • Incorporating hundreds of classic tactics, and supporting the original tactic system.
    Steel Ocean also restores hundreds of classic sea battle tactics and sea battle maps. The players may replay the “Wolf pack tactics”, “Competing for T head” and other famous tactics at real time, and independently design the new tactics based on the maps, natural environment, weather conditions, warship combination and other objective factors.

  • Diversified competition modes, and team play varying from modes.
    The actual sea warfare is not merely the exchange of firepower. Steel Ocean provides tens of combat modes, from the MOBA random matching for combat, the battle to seize the isle for testing the team tactics, to the short distance contact battle without isle, combat of small teams in different sizes, and even the super large legion PVP battlefield in the boundless water…, available to meet the different requirements of game players. Each mode includes several sets of applicable tactics and derivative skills, bringing the endless and changeable battlefield experience.

  • Highly immersive interactive map to restore World War II scenarios.
    The development team of Steel Ocean accurately simulates the isles, reefs, buildings, metrological, weather conditions, etc. of many sea areas in the world, based on the results of consulting extensive historic records and many times of site surveys, and the actual geographic environment data.

  • Separated Damage Calculation system to ensure more accurate attack.
    In addition to the original damage calculation by health bars of the TPS vehicle war games, Steel Ocean is incorporated with the separated damage calculation system (“SDC”).

  • Commanded by hundreds of officers of World War II, providing warships with tactic soul.
    Steel Ocean includes the innovative warship commander system, incorporated with hundreds of famous navy generals during the 2nd World War, based on the actual history of the period, to impart the cold warships with the different tactic features.

  • Unique legion system to create super marine legions.
    The fleet guild system provides a big platform for players to communicate on tactics, and also combines the team play and the fleet growth mechanism into one.

  • Built-in radio voice to effectively restore maritime communication.
    One of the most critical factors deciding the success or failure of a military operation is intelligence. The information communication at any place and at any time is the basis for the battle with the team collaboration, and the key for realizing the strategic cooperation of multiple warship types in the modern sea battles.

I also play World of Warships, World of Tanks and Warthunder...out of them all I would rate this game on the top for warship gaming, with a more realistic 'warthunder' feel over wargaming's world of warships which has a much more arcade feel. So props on that. Also, this game has subs...WoWS does not...this game is thus better on that note...secondary props. Visuals are amazing, the classes varried enough to give you differences, you have not only the primary guns, secondary guns and torpedoes....but you also have working depth charges...Love pretty much everything about this game!

didn't play long, but was long even. loved the idea of submarines and pve content (still waiting for that pve btw, didn't see any of it)

looks okay, no where near World of Warships quality, which this is trying to copy.

hate the dumbed down controls, ships turn, accerlate and stop almost instantly, makes torps completely useless unless someone really isnt paying attention.

had 1 game, would liked to have played more but when queuing up to try out my new shing T2 Sub and Cruiser..... waiting times faaaaar exceded 20mins, totally unacceptable. doesn't help with only US servers and massive ping.

not me and wouldn't recommend for anyone whos played WoWs, if you haven't then bypass this game and try WoWs instead. no submarines unfortunately but looks and plays better.

I'm an old man and this is going to be a long and detailed review.. Hope it helps you..

About me:
I got wife, dog, very demanding job. My time is very valuable to me..

I spent around 300hrs of my life to this piece of junk game. Got ~1100 battles.. I am a decent player with excessive knowledge in naval tactics and ww2 history. Was the admiral of a fleet with real nice people.. You got the idea..

THIS GAME IS ABSOLUTE JUNK.

Onto details:

- Absolute World Of Warships rip-off which doesnt even come close..
- Unrealistic ship mechanics.. You can simply stop a frickin battleship in a heartbeat like a bicycle and evade torpedos.. All ships act like frickin UFOs.. Accelerating, decelarating and manouvering are all ridiculous..
- Horrible matchmaking.. Just horrible..
- A player base that is getting smaller and smaller.. Average matchmaking at mid level takes 5 minutes.. I remember waiting for 15 minutes for a 3vs3 t7-t8 battle.. EVERYTIME its like this.. Average number of players online 35... THIRTY FIVE... Not 100, not 1000.. THIRTY FRICKIN FIVE..
- Absolutely worst Developers ever.. They dont give the slightest f*ck about their players.. They shut people up in discussions.. They lock threads that proves there are cheaters in game or any thread that is critic of them.. ANY..
- You can cheat all you want.. There is no penalty. You can team-kill.. All day long.. Nothing will happen.. There is nothing you can do to lose your account.. The guy who openly killed teammates and gave away positions to enemy got a 12hr ban after everyone complained about it. The guy who started the discussion thread about an entire fleet cheating got shut up.. The thread got locked..
- There is a PG rated chat censor in this game that you wouldnt believe.. Apparently in China these are bad words: canal, system, speed.. the list goes on and on.. You cant write 3 sentences without triggering chat censor.. Developers of this game = LEARN ENGLISH and GET A DICTIONARY !!!
- Ship types... Oiiii weiii... The aircraft carriers are jokes.. The aircrafts are mosquitos that you wipe out by spraying lead on them with any type of ship including battleships.. LOL!!!! IN A WW2 GAME!!!!.. Would it kill you to read a history book and see the number 1 cause of why battleships were sunk in World War II?? The submarines are target practice for destroyers.. The cruisers are absolutely useless.. No power, no stability, just floating targets for battleships..

I can go on and on...
Why I played this game this long.. A very good friend was playing it too.. So for long time I stayed with him..
Then; I downloaded World Of Warships... And I stopped playing this crap the moment I played WoW.. Its the best game in the market.. GET it..

Steel Ocean IS A PIECE OF JUNK...

In a single word: REGRET... Thats what comes to my mind when I think about this game.. REGRET..

STAY A MILE AWAY... Download World Of Warships.. Have fun..

Being an old-school gamer I value gameplay much more than shiny graphics. And the arcade nature of this game really works. Just don't expect simulation experience. Even the graphics are not terrible, just not as detailed as some other games. Some ships actually look very good (eg. you don't need much details for a sub). Moreover, addition of historical events is also worth praising.

Saying that, I can't recommend this game. You can endure long waiting times, but the amount of friendly fire is just crazy (mostly in the form of torpedoes). No one cares where they launch their torps and believe me, the number of torps in this game is very high. So be prepared that you will be damaged by your own team members almost as much as enemies.

I would love to give this game a good review... However... I cannot for now... I'll explain the reason in the CONS

Pros :
- A warship game with submarines!
- All types of weapons are be used manualy (Anti-Aircraft guns/Secondary and Main cannons)
- Cool ships on all Tiers/Levels
- Use of Skills from Commanders

CONS :
- Really BAD servers... Variable latency and small freeze or disconnections may happen (I'm using a 1Gb/1Gb optic fiber line provider connection)
- Really poor community... Very few players, and most of them aren't even able to give a Hello...
- Graphics could be way better... Looks like a game from 2003... Even if it's not too ugly, it can not compare to similar games like WoWarShip

This game is garbage. It started out with so much potential and the match making system absolutely killed it. I have been playing for a month and reached the PO rank yet I find myself in level 4-5 matches against FLEET ADMIRALS with 2-3 times as much battle power as MY ENTIRE TEAM. I am tired of being put in matches I have no chance at winning with people who are new to the game being farmed by veteran players in low tiers just farming rank and renown. How broken is their matchmaking system when my level 4 BB gets matched against a level 5 BB that i have no chance at damaging? FIX YOUR DAMN GAME

The entire game is 'DEAD' only like 30 people play at peak times for North America.

Only one Server which is North American, so you get terrible ping to servers.

Would not recommend at all.

Worst game i have ever played!
-friendly bots shoot you and sink you
-the ships movement is so unrealistic
-the graphics are straight from a game made in 2006
-thos game is trying to replicate world of warships and did a very bad job at it!
Thank you for reading my opinion some people may like this game and its fine.
