About the Game

For over a year the forces of the United States of America (Northern States) and the Confederates States of America (Southern States) have fought a bitter war. In 1862 the governments of Great Britain, France and Spain recognize the Southern States to secure raw materials. The Souths economy becomes dependent on trade with Europe. The Northern Government imposes a complete blockade of shipping to the South. The Confederate Government buys warships from the European powers, to protect its trade. This sets the stage for a naval conflict for control of the Confederates trade routes. Choose a side, build a fleet and destroy the enemy.

93% SubSim. Simple and quick to understand, No complex table and keyboard commands to memorize. Great modeling, a rare subject. ( http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=143313 )


85% Armchairgeneral. Passed Inspection: Great graphics, challenging AI, realistic physics, nice interface, neglected topic, useful editor. Failed Basic: No multi-play, lack of weather and land. ( http://www.armchairgeneral.com/ironclads-high-seas-pc-game-review.htm )


SimHQ Review. Good - Value for the price/ Decent AI / Runs well on moderate hardware (and laptops) / Replayable. Could be Better - No multiplayer/ No custom missions / Water graphics too placid ( http://www.simhq.com/_naval/naval_027a.html )

Do NOT buy this game, here is why:

- ZERO help, figure everything out by yourself, there isn't even a text help file you can read
- LAGGY interface, you never know if you actually clicked something or not
- BAD graphic, I know not to expect much, but the ships looks bad, so does the sea
- NO FUN its a really really boring game, doubt most people will finish the first battle (takes quite a while)


Worst of all:
- NO POINT - It was an absolutely pointless experience
