I was deeply disappointed with this game. Having owned both Ship Sim 2006 and 2008, i expected Extremes to be the step up, but it sure wasn't.

It's as if they took a step back. The graphics are absolutely apalling, and for some reason my boat keeps 'shuddering' in the water, it spasms out. The controls feel clunky and unresponsive. Compared to Ship SImulator 2006, this is a complete degenerate of that. Sorry VStep, but this game is not good enough.

EDIT: Upon further playing of this game, I still stick to the original review. It's just so buggy. In stormy conditions the water wobbles like jelly and occasionally has these weird flashes. Snow and rain are just thick white lines that flash violently across the screen cutting off visibility completely. I was playing with the Esperenza and got one of the RHIBs stuck underneath the hull. Ship Sim 2008 is far better. It has better physics, and despite a smaller selection of vessels it's still solid.

I just can't explain the water glitches, it just baffles me on so many levels. This game is a simulator for ships so water has to be a big thing, yet the water feels like it was designed and coded in an hour. The boat feels like it hovers over the water, the water wobbles and jingles like jelly and when the camera clips the water the water texture flashes all over the camera for a second. Also, the ship controls have a small delay. They could have made this educational, instead they just plop you into a random scenario and say "do it yourself" leaving you with a bunch of controls that you have NO clue what they do and you just move the different wheels and levers until your ship goes forward. I want to love this game, I really do but it's just too buggy, too ugly and too broken.

I am a student at a Maritime Academy so I should be the target market for this simulator but I just can't get past it's flaws. First off, I have a quad-core i7 processor w/ a GeForece 555M that gets great framerates on Crysis 2 and Skyrim but no matter how I adjust the graphics this game has an awful framerate, so bad as to make the sim unusable. Second is the fact that I have to enter the product keys every time I start the game. Between these two flaws, but expecially the performance lag, I can't even get started with this simulator even though it would be a help to my career to have a tool like this. I just can't reccomend it to anyone unless they patch it to improve he perfromance issues.

MARKETTING BLURB: "Ever wonder how it feels to sail a half-million-ton supertanker through the perfect storm?"

Yes I do, however The "EXTREMES" part of the title is entirely misleading. I set the wind to maximum "hurricane" setting and went out into the Atlantic in a speedboat, sailboat and tanker and the waves are nothing like a "perfect storm", more like a choppy 3 mtr swell. Couldn't tip the boats or damage them in the slightest. Waves don't even break over the bow. When I do manage to "crash" into waves it glitches and either spins the boat chaotically into the air or stops its momentum dead. Not at all realistic and absolutely NOT EXTREME. The water is a 2D plane with no attempt to deal with the camera dropping below the waves - which happens constantly - so the water appears hollow. Scenery is dull. Textures are average. Simulation is as simplistic as it is inaccurate.

Conclusion: Meh. Not even worth $10.

If you enjoy simulation games and, you are into boats or ships, take it for a spin. There are some pretty cool wheather physics and dynamics. Such as wind direction, ship listing and rolling. Calm beutiful waters or hurricanes belched from Posiden himself.
Not as much interaction with console interface as I thought but, still a bit of fun to play. Check it out and see for your self.

Quite a relaxing game, its a boatload of fun and a hull of a good time, if its on sail you cant afford knot to buy it for a smooth sailing time. Did I mention there are boats?
Ship is what this games all a-boat.
