This game came out wrecked from release and little patches couldn't get it on the franchise's level. It should be a sim on a certain level. >>>You<<< can make it happen.

**********If you buy this, make sure you MOD the HECK out of it!!!!!!!*****************

Still is a moddable platform with an ACTIVE comunity. Check SUBSIM forums!

If you can't be bothered with downloading tons of mods or reading through all the threads download the:
**Wolves of Steel Megamod**.

It includes **Open Horizons II** campaign MOD and dozens of other enhancements from graphics to UI and gameplay. Along these lines, get **REAL NAVIGATION mod** if you want more deph on navigation simulation.

Don't be lazy and start reading if you want it to be a good simulator.

It Seems like this game sucks but that's NOT the case At ALL.
The game is okay , the problem seems te be U-play..
I never had problems with U-play so i like it very much till now , so give it a chance for only a few bucks you got yourself a beautiful nice game with some glitches that if you're not a veteran SH3 player are hardly noticeable.
Graphics are much better than the previous silent hunter games , i like the 1st person gameplay more than the old school gameplay of the previous parts.
I not regret buying this title but regret that i buyed the whole bundlle and installed SH5 first.. SH3 expansions are obsolete now after i tried it for a few hours and playing SH5 again :)
Hope someone has help from this comment and does the wise thing ;)

Aircraft never attack (doesn't make much difference since you can never see them and point your flak guns at them), they never added the destroyer escort feature, never added u-boats other than the type 7, never added...

I could go on about all the stuff the manual says the game has but doesn't. The game needs heavy modding if you do decide to buy it. The only improvement over SH3, albeit very small and buggy, is the addition of missions other than "Patrol C5".
