Gosh, this game has most wasted potential in the world :( best WWII submarines, beautifull graphics and fully explorable ship interior... everything wasted because of multiple bugs and no developer support. SHAME, Ubi, shame. Better play SH3 or SH4 with mods, much less frustrating. Cheers.

this game is very good sub sim , feels like a better version (graphics/environment/) of SH3 BUT only with few mods on , so if you are willing to spend a few hours to set the game its worth it.

Raw game is crap + you need Uplay

Update 06/2016
If you allready bought the game and want to make it playable, there is a comunity of people that did what ubisoft should have done, fix some of the bugs.
There is a file patcher that fixes some of the issues of the game. This is a *MUST* if you intend to (try to) play the game. See here:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=214687
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=205620

After you patch the game, its still garbage! lol. You need aditional mods:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=203711

After all this, it becomes useable.
Again, shame on you ubisoft, for having others do YOUR job.

Original review:
Garbage. Dont waste your money.

I didnt have any problems getting the game to run (Windows 7 x64). Just logged in to my ucrap account and activated it, and it worked fine.

Then, After (trying to) play this trash for a while, i spent several hours researching & downloading mods to try to fix the COUNTLESS bugs and shortcomings on it.
I then spent 13 hours (past the 2 hr steam refund time) testing mods.
Even the Stadimeter is broken FFS! even THAT needs mods to fix it.

14 (yes Fourteen) mods later, this thing is somehow usable (NOTE: "usable" is not the same as "fun" or "good"), but still nowhere near to SH4, and LIGHTYEARS away from SH3.
Its more of a brainless "action" game, for people who think their head is only there to put on hats.

Shame on you Ubisoft, for releasing a product in this state.

Bottom line:
If you...
- Dont mind spending a few hours researching and downloading mods to make it usable
- Never played a SH game before
- Are NOT (repeat, NOT) interested in anything regarding a simulation but rather a brainless, unrealistic "action game"
- Are willing to sacrifice playability, realism, strategic play, historical accuracy for "eye candy"
- Think "Das Boot" is a brand of shoes
- Want to play with "helpers" on (e.g. automatic torpedo targeting)

You *might* find this thing... "Ok"

But if you want a decent uboat game/sim, Get Silent Hunter 3. Or at the very least, Silent hunter 4.

Cant get it to run because of ubisoft issues with connecting for authentication. That said it is a great game but not as good as the benchmark Silent Hunter 3. With all the mods etc that can be applied to Silent Hunter 3 I would go and buy that one and apply the Mega mods and you will have a shiny nice game for a fraction of the cost here.
