Silent Hunter 5

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Silent Hunter 5: Battle for the Atlantic would have been a fitting and enjoyable experience had it not been so inexplicable demanding on hardware, buggy and generally frustrating. Poor coding and Ubisoft’s paranoid DRM successfully manages to torpedo any enjoyment to be had from playing this game. Sadly, Silent Hunter 5 helps the submarine sim genre to sink down to new depths.

Silent Hunter 5 PC Game Review

Reviewboard Magazine
30 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Reviewing a poor submarine sim is tough because there are just too few opportunities for comparison. It’s like living in a town with only one pizza place. Even if it’s not very good, you’ll still go every once in a while if you happen to be in the mood for pizza. You have to accept that if you want a new submarine game, you’ll just have to make the best of it. In terms of positive features, this one looks stunning and really delivers those intense wolfpack hunt moments.

Damn the Torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

  • Excerpt: When I was a sailboat noob I got to see and feel North Atlantic greybeards up close and personal. All the photos I took of them failed to do them justice. But lash yourself into the conning tower of your type VIIa U-boat and DX9 does way a better job of recreating the North Atlantic in angry mode than my old photos ever did.
  • Pros: Lovely Graphics, Fine simulation, New interior and crew.
  • Cons: The UBI DRM, Stiff system requirement, Still needs work.

Silent Hunter 5 Review

AusGamers
19 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Once the enemy is engaged, the game of cat and mouse – roles that flip-flop throughout the course of the battle as submariners strive against their Destroyer seamen and pilot counterparts. A skilful U-boat captain, can infiltrate under the cover of darkness, let loose his cargo of carnage and then slip off into the night. This is part of playing such a game; much of the action is in avoiding action.
  • Pros: The atmosphere, the spray in our hair, the endless horizon, juxtaposition with a first person view of life in a tin can., Genuine tension, fear and claustrophobia when evading detection., Satisfaction when a plan comes together., Crew RPG levelling raises the feeling of comradeship., Museum option that showcases military hardware of the era.
  • Cons: Frustrating bugs, some minor, some that say �hello desktop�, some that break missions., Steep learning curve for new Captains, no helpful tutorial to guide and a manual equally rudimentary in details., Waiting for the mod community to �finish� the game.

Silent Hunter 5

2 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Silent Hunter, was zu deutsch „Stiller Jäger“ bedeutet, wurde 1996 das erste Mal von Mindscape veröffentlicht. Das Spiel handelt in der Zeit des Zweiten Weltkrieges, wobei bei jeder Fortsetzung ein neues Einsatzgebiet vorhanden war. Viele Spieler behaupten ja, dass das Spiel an Qualität verloren hat, je mehr Spiele in dieser Reihe veröffentlicht worden sind. Auch die Fachpresse hatte in letzter Zeit kein gutes Haar an diesem Spiel gelassen.

“Het verhaal van de U-boat”

6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: De Wereldoorlogen zijn in games al regelmatig aan bod gekomen en hierdoor hebben we al meerdere malen als soldaat de geschiedenis kunnen herbeleven. Maar toch is er een onderdeel wat we zo goed als nooit tegenkomen in games, de gevreesde U-boten van de Duitsers. Deze onderzeeërs waren een ware nachtmerrie voor elke Engelse, Franse of Amerikaanse kapitein en hebben menig slachtoffer gemaakt.
  • Pros: Geweldige graphics, Realisme op meerdere niveaus, De kick als je een boot tot zinken brengt
  • Cons: Het vele reizen, Houterige besturing in je onderzeeër

Silent Hunter 5: Битва за Атлантику

games.mail.ru
28 February 2011
  • Summary: Серьезно рассматривать Silent Hunter 5 как симулятор пока невозможно — его тянет ко дну жуткая недоделанность. Хотя игре не откажешь в некоторой атмосферности. Сделать из него полуаркаду, покрутив настройки сложности, конечно, можно. Но смысла в этом мало — был же не так давно куда более аркадный и в то же время более удачный и захватывающий «Морской охотник». В общем, на словах проект казался довольно интересным и свежим, на практике же — жалкое зрелище.
