Impossible to run on Vista 64, difficult on Vista 32

Rob Marciello, Amazon
19 December 2010
  • Summary: It was hard to give this software stars, since the game itself is a great simulation. The trouble is: Ubi is still selling it, but the software only works on XP. XP is a great operating system - probably Microsoft's best ever - but when it's over it's over. And, unlike XP, Vista's backwards-compatibility is sketchy at best. There are workarounds to run SH3 on Vista 32 bit.

  • Summary: game play and graphics were good. sound was good. a few days into playing the game the game went into a game pause mode which i cannot get out of making the game unplayable. found out it was a defect from the factory that is a common problem with this series of silent hunter. to bad game had good promise.

Good Idea, pitiful execution...

D. falconer, Amazon
29 August 2005
  • Summary: Beware of the copy protection software. You need a gig or more to run this game. On a W2K platform @ 2 GHz with 2 GB of RAM and a 256 MB video card; it crashes constantly. Beware clicking on the "submerged cruise" button, as that will freeze and exit the game. Un-saved... Save your games regularly. Career mode is boring... Patrol after patrol after patrol...

Legally installing this game harmed my computer

Greggbek "gregbek", Amazon
16 August 2005
  • Summary: This product contains starforce copy protection which is supposed to keep people from making illegal copies. The bad thing about starforce is that for legal purchases it does things to your comptuer which are permanent and possibly destructive. Do a search on starforce problems and you will see what I mean. I installed this software and when I first tried to run it, it installed some DEVICE DRIVERS on my system and windows asked me to reboot.

Constantly Crashes !

Jeffrey G. Nestler, Amazon
27 July 2005
  • Summary: Great concept..... Install copy protection that causes a legally purchased game to crash randomly. Owners of the game are forced to save game every 5 mins. to avoid having to completely start over. A lesson in frustration! Avoid any game that uses Starforce copy protection!

Gutes Spiel schlechter Kopierschutz

Gunter Stosch, Amazon
24 May 2005
  • Summary: Silent Hunter ist von hause aus wert gekauft zu werden. Was ich ja bei den Vorgängern auch schon gemacht habe. Ich kann mich allen anderen da auf jeden Fall anschließen. Nur was die meisten hier vergessen anzusprechen ist das Ubisoft hier dasselbe Problem hat wie zum Beispiel bei Siedler V. Durch den Kopierschutz läuft es auf kaum einem DVD Laufwerk. Bei mir zum Beispiel nur auf dem Laptop, welcher dann natürlich die Grafik nicht leisten kann.

Ob das Spiel läuft ist Glückssache!

D. Medrzycki "mauser98k3", Amazon
4 April 2005
  • Summary: Das Spiel ist nur was für psychisch sehr stabile Menschen! Wenns mal läuft ist die Grafik ja wirklich schön, aber 1. Bis es soweit ist, dauerts ewig, die Ladezeiten sind Weltrekord! Da kann ich in Ruhe die Wohnung putzen oder einen Kaffee trinken gehen. 2. Wenn ich Pech habe, stürzt das Spiel am Ende der Ladezeit sang und klanglos ab, "konnte nicht von Speicheradresse 0x0000 lesen". Und ich habe in ca. 2/3 der Fälle Pech.
