"Some much in one small box!"
5 stars"

By far the best WWII sim I have played. Straight out of the box it isnt a bad deal however your a WWII sub nut then you really need to check out some of the mods the community has put together. If you thought the game was good to start with well you havent seen anything yet! The local hang out seems to be www.subsim.com/ check out the forums and mod sections for SHIII it'll breath new life into your sub sim! :)

"disappointing"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Having played this game I am very disappointed. The first mission was a success. After a lot of time managing the crew and bringing an enemy ship into range, I managed to sink it with 2 of the only 3 torpedoes that I was supplied with. That was GREAT. The next two missions were a total let down. An hour or so getting to the target area and sighting an enemy vessel were wasted because I was given ‘training/dud’ torpedoes. I even ‘rode’ one one of the torpedoes to watch it bounce off the hull.
I read the review for SH4 and found that the 2 guys that were invited back to the ‘factory’ to test the game were experiencing the same problem.
The graphics are terrific but, I found it a complete let down overall, and cannot rate it very highly.

Description

The next title in the Silent Hunter franchise will add new dimensions to the simulation experience. The player will engage in a compelling ocean environment, featuring dynamic weather, and experience the intensity of historical naval warfare. Taking the role of the U-boat commander, players will seek their enemy with sonar and periscope, attack the enemy with torpedoes, destroy them with the deck gun, or command their crew to do the job. The all-new 3D engine features impressively detailed U-boat models, both externally and internally, with exact replica WWII technology.

"Silent Hunter III will go beyond current naval simulations and offer a brand-new dimension: a U-boat captain simulator," said Florin Boitor, producer from the Ubisoft studios. "From detailed crew assignment to essential decisions in combat to career evolution, everything will be in the player's control."

In fact, the game reaches even further and recreates a WWII movie atmosphere with cinematic cameras focusing on the most crucial events around the player. Whether they are stalking Destroyers or hiding from depth charges, players will experience the game as their own personal war story. Also available will be a robust multiplayer mode that includes cooperative and top-ace competition game models.

"The Silent Hunter series has a legacy of award-winning titles and Silent Hunter III will continue in that tradition," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing, Ubisoft. "The innovative crew management system, spectacular environmental effects, and high realism will set the simulation standard for years to come."
