Hi all, am new here and to sub sims in general. Just a quick question, I'm assuming most here have probably played SHII, is it worth getting while I await SHIII? Thanks

I disagree, if you can get sh2 at a cheap price i say definitely get it because it will really help you appreciate sh3 once it comes out.

for 45 bucks ya i say the game is dissapointing
but if you could get it for say 20 bucks or less, then i say your on the fence when it comes to value. It just doesnt have replay value.

Get it,its well worth it,
you know what some people are like,the wouldnt say something good about a game if you paid them to.

I recommend you don't get it. Instead go on eBay and invest $5-$10 in Silent Hunter 1, a much better game.

Buy SH2, go ahead..........with some adds-on it is a good sim, specially after the high hardcore level it had reached with this adds-on.

But you could never fix that stupid AI no matter how many great add-ons you had. THAT was the deal breaker for me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Agree with you............

It is true the SH2 AI is not so good.......

But we must to be ware about some times it is due to the knowed "save game" bug, wich become stupid DDs after save game.......

Any way the SH2 AI is bad, in example in SH1, when you was detected by escorts, some of they run over you, but the capital ships run away from you inmediately...... escorted by some few escorts.......

If you are detected your attack is ruined.......you can not reach shooting distance ........

In Sh2, when you are detected, DDs run over you, but capital ships do not run far away from you, they remains on course, this not ruins your attack, capital ships continue to approacing to you......... but it is so unreal...........

Any way with some adds on SH2 can be considered to be buyed.......... do it.

I just bought one on e-bay for 99p 2.65 all in with postage. You download the mods and it€s a good wee game, I just wish I could work out how too torpedo ships manually without the Auto settings but then again I€d be there all day working out the settings. I just started the campaign on hard so it should do me for the next few months.

The only problem I had was my video driver conflicted with it but once I got probably the best one for my old gforce3 card it works a treat.

The explosion mod that€s a real explosion is fantastic.


You cant beat it for just over 2 now can you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There are a lot of good things that can be said about it too though.At times it was believable.

I'm just about to start it on a harder level too,i figure i gotta toughen up for SHIII.
