Summary: This is a Strategic Simulations game. It is very dated, being an old game. Works ok on my Windows 7 PC. Not spectacular. But there are no really good submarine games out there right now, so it is better than nothing.
Summary: I have always wanted to okay this game. I finally got it and I was really amazed at the over kill on details that were involved in this game! To a degree I can understand why but OMG its just insane what you need to do just to move the sub let alone try to survive.
Summary: I've played Aces of the Deep and found that game more engaging. Silent Hunter 3 has better visuals and options. But the game does have several functionally problems that distract from the game play. The ability to report and receive messages to HQ is disabled in the game.
Summary: Hi my silent hunter 2 stoped working So I bought Silent Hunter 3, Good Game however not as real or should I say not as much as a simulator, I prefer a simulator type of realism over gaming quality.
Summary: Without its severe flaws, this game would be a 9/10. Worth looking at if you are a mature, very patient gamer willing to put in some serious time. Still worth picking up 2012+ as there has been no really good sub-sim game since.
I am not too happy with the quality of this product.

Summary: When the action of the game is to its' highest level and one has to make faster moves the pointer on the screen goes haywire. Sometimes it freezes and sometimes it is uncontrolable. Just when one needs the controls to work, they don't work properly. Other than that I love the game.
Summary: Silent Hunter III is a World War II submarine simulation set in the North Atlantic. You can captain various German U-Boat models at any time during World War II. It is a very well-done game and can completely consume you. The game as sold is pretty good.
