This is a fun game but requires heavy modding in my opion to make it work. The game does crash for me after an hour of gameplay before I found subsim.com and got the mods to fix the game and make it actually play and work. In theory it is an expansion of Silent Hunter 3, but this is Ubisoft here they have been failing the PC community for a decade now. This game I luckily only payed $4.99 for and in my opion this is the correct price for any and all future Ubisoft PC games since they. Seem to call a half finished port/game a fully functioning product without much optimization except to get it to running on there computers since Yves Guillant, probably had a say in this game for those who don't know. He is there CEO and made up a ridiculious theory how 93-95% of all PC gamers pirate there games and steal from him and his company and the game developers everywhere. He got the brilliant idea back in 2008 which is where uplay came from to as he puts it will fix the piracy problems of his games and should put an end to the 93-95% number he made up. If you want to have fun playing submarines play either Silent Hunter 3, or 4. The last great games in the Silent Hunter franchise even the 1st and 2nd, are still fun to play to do this day I keep an old. Computer I built that has a 1.5 GHz Pentium D processor and 512 MB of RAM. Along with a 8800 Geforce GPU, just to play Silent Hunter 1, and 2 because it still has Windows XP.

Ok seriously, ♥♥♥♥ this game. Saw some videos from the series, decided to get the most recent one. Yet it doesnt ♥♥♥♥ing start. Because you know, Ubisoft is a ♥♥♥♥ing money sucking ♥♥♥♥♥ where they take your money then don't let you play. Because you need to use uPlay to play yet it does not ♥♥♥♥ing work. Do not get unless you enjoy wasting $10.

I'm probably only going to have to only good review. But my job is on a submarine and it is really cool to see what it was like before. I have had no problems with this game at all. And it provides nice insight into history. Even if you do it yourself. It's a lot of fun if you have paitence. Because paitence is what it takes to kill silently and disappear.

This game is great. This game is buggy. This game is the cake without icing. This game is worth a purchase. If you have the patience for simulation games, this one is a little bit of a lighter load to carry and can be mastered quite easily. The bugs will rear their ugly heads from time to time, most are merely amusing. Like the torpedo explosions that send ships flying hundreds of yards vertically upwards. Some will frustrate you to no end, like missing mission specific ships.

Overall, if its on sale pick it up. Remember, the more people who buy these games means Silent Hunter 6 has a greater chance of being made. These types of games rock, but this one just rolls.

This game could have been amazing if ubisoft sticked with updating and patching it. When I first started playing it i was blown away by all the fancy new things. Then the game crashed, then it crashed again, then again. So I burned if off my harddrive in frustration at ubisoft for not fixing it. Heck at least there aren't any microtransactions in it.

This game have to be heavily patched to correct the HUGE bugs it has.
The problem is, they didn't.

I bought this game for 55€ (special content inside)
In the future Ubisoft will never get even one euro cent from me.

If you want a good sub-game look at Silent Hunter 3 instead, this game is seriously sub-par...

Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic, isn't a terrible game by any means. It can be quite fun at times and exciting. Unfortunately, the gilitches and bugs out weigh any fun this game will give to you. With the corrupted save files, ghost ships etc. But, if these were the only problems with the game, hell, I'd say give it a shot. Alas, it is not. And the problem this game suffers from, is not the game itself, no no, It's the beautiful, glorious, riveting Ubisoft.

You've just installed the game. You hit the play button of course! Time for some fun, you'll give the game a shot. A few minutes later Uplay shows up to tell you that, "Hi! You need to create another account! Along with the millions and millions of other online accounts you already have! Ha ha!" So, begrudgingly, you decide to make another damned account. Twenty minutes later you're account is set up. Perfect. You've given them the product key and you're ready to play.


Heck, maybe you even liked the game a bit. But a few months pass, you haven't played the game in a while, you uninstalled it because it was taking up room, and you thought, "I'll reinstall it if I ever want to play it again." So you get this odd urge to play a game on the high seas, sinking shipping and what not. You click the install button, wait a few, and you're off! Or, so you think. Uplay comes back and says, "Hi again! Please activate you're product by entering your product key to play!" Finding this strange since you already activated it once, you curiously do so. Copy and paste, and you're done. You reach for the OK button, you click. What happens? "Sorry ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥! This key is already being used by another account! Please contact our AMAAAAAAAZING customer support for more information! Ha ha!"

This game requires u-play to be online in order to play it... the first time I got this game, I had to buy it 3 times inorder to get a working key... now 2 years later my steam key no longer works to activate the game meaning I now have 3 copies of this game which are unplayable. Sadly, even though this game requires online to play (even though it's a single player game), ubisoft has dropped all support for it. So, don't expect to see any updates or anything antime soon.

Unplayable game. So disappointed. Bugs everywhere. I cannot believe this game was ever released. It's so unstable, seems like a beta version and a bad one a that.
