  • Excerpt: Paradox Interactive's latest war title, from Turbo Tape games, focuses on the near-modern arena of ship-to-ship battle. Set in the year 2030, Naval War: Arctic Circle portrays a conflict developing between NATO (largely comprised of US, UK, and Scandinavian navies) and Russia in the cold waters in northern Europe.

  • Excerpt: I'll be up front, I'm not a fan of naval strategy games. The truth is, this is the first game I've played from this genre. However, I still enjoyed my time playing Naval War despite being a complete newbie.
  • Pros: Bad language; Crude humor; Explosions

  • Conclusion: We don’t want to say Naval War was disappointing, because it wasn’t really – the preview stage showed us a simple, yet well-made title that does exactly what it says on the tin – we still couldn’t help but find the game surprising over all though, and not in the good way. Fortunate then that it’s only £14.99, otherwise there might be a value issue to consider, but in terms of recommendation, we’re not really sure who would enjoy this game.

Naval War: Arctic Circle review

  • Conclusion: But that’s how naval warfare works. The real strategic meat of the game comes in managing intelligence, choosing the right targets and keeping enough planes in the air to respond to threats, whereas the actual fighting takes forever but gives the player little to do. There is plenty of meat in here and as ever with niche games there is definitely an audience for it, but when it comes to a broad review I can’t help but think that realistic naval combat doesn’t translate...
  • Pros: Dedicated simulation. Clean presentation.
  • Cons: Not ideal 'game' material. Poor 3D combat engine.

  • Excerpt: Norvég fejlesztők ébresztették fel a minap a mélytengeri álomban szunnyadó flotta-taktikázós műfajt, de talán jobb lett volna az alvó Csipkerózsikát meghagyni olyannak, amilyen, mert az évtizednyi porréteg alól már csak egy éltes matrónát sikerült elővakarni…
  • Pros: Könnyen kezelhető, logikusan felépített, egyszerű játékmenet, amely pont a megfelelő egységeket vonultatja fel.
  • Cons: Rendkívül alacsony színvonalon kivitelezett, ingerszegény alkotás, amely néha még be is szaggat, a küldetésszerkesztő hiánya szintén mínusz, és a multi is hamar megunható.

  • Excerpt: Сюжет Naval War: Arctic Circle будто бы сошел со страниц книг Тома Клэнси. Россия ввязывается в битву с западными державами за контроль над миром в целом и полярные территории в частности. Угадайте, кого пошлют гасить пожар потенциальной ядерной войны? Печально только, что действует искусственный интеллект в кампании по шаблонам, и, изучив миссию от корки до корки, через пару-тройку часиков вы пройдете ее успешно.

  • Summary: Naval War: Arctic Circle er ikke nødvendigvis et dårlig spill, men det er tydeligvis beregnet på spesielt interesserte med mye tålmodighet. Jeg ble aldri overbevist nok av spillet til å bli en av dem. Det største problemet er den høye terskelen man må forsere for virkelig å komme inn i spillet. Det blir gitt for lite opplæring i hva man skal gjøre, og man er sjeldent skikkelig forberedt.
