Ha ha, some review http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

That's a back-of-the-box review, says nothing about the game that has not been printed before. 8 out of 10? Shame! He even used other people's screenshots

Review does not touch upon any multiplayer aspects of the game thus this review is useless. THanks.

Yea! 8 out of 10! That suprized me. Who the heck they think they are. Compaired to what other sub sim anyways? I know Enigma RT could be the only one to come only barely close to SHIII in every feature. They are not true subsimmers like us all. I see a forum review coming up real soon! I give SHIII 10 out of 10! with 5 more stars for extra credit! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Just like all the other toms reviews, filled with worthless dribble from a person that dont know squat.

Tom's hardware contradicts itsself anyways. The fool wrote all positive things about SHIII in the few pages it had and turned around and gave an 8? What a phoney review. Too bad that website doesnt have a public review! I would write one on Tom's to correct him quickly. FOr all we know he may be a hardcore racecar gamer! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

French dont like what Germans did anyways so I think some of it was a bit bias.

Might I add also his website should be called:

Tom's Hardware Back-o-ta-box reviews.

I've said it before and i'll say it again,

You can bet all the Mag's etc will give it 80something percent.

It's not a Shooter!!!

Hell it could have projected a starwar's type holergram into your room,and there still give it 87%.

Taskforce1x1,

I agree at 50 % with you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Tomshardware think the crew management is boring !
What the ... ! It's one of my favorite part, and he also mention that's a shame there isn't any destroyer to play with in multiplayer, but hey ! This is an U-boat simulator right now isn't.
So yes Tomshardware should review his rating up!


But french people in general doesn't hate all what germans did.
Look, me for example, I love Porsches I'm driving a BMW and I like their food and bier http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Poach is right, HL2 got in the 90 percentile, so be a little grounded when it comes to SH3.

Someone mentioned "worthless dribble" haha, thats a laugh, so you waste hours on end reading these forums.....u decide.

And it may be well to hold your 'fanboi' tongue till we get more info. That's the point of the post. SPREADING THE INFO. Don't like it, oh well, keep refreshing and re-reading your own posts.

I would rather read from someone who at least has the "back-of-ta-box" than someone who doesn't. IMHO http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

It's Tom's Hardware, Neal.

Did you really expect anything more? lol

They already have a pretty poor reputation among hardware enthusiasts and everbody else who knows anything about computers.

Hi javdog
I don't think the reviewer by the sounds of it, is into subsims, so 8/10 is not a bad score, Thanks for the link javdog. cheers egoslayer

You will find most of the reviews which come out first are not real reviews. They are just based on heresay ect. Best to wait till real people review the game who have it (eg neal) then go with the guesswork these guys put in just to be first.

Lol, why would I be sour? If I wanted to rush out the "first" review, I could have done than 5 weeks ago. You just got all exited about a "review" that was basically thrown together from someone who doesn't have the game, he just read previews and reviews from other websites.

Btw, you missed a chance for more !!!!!!!

The way I see Tom's hardware is:

-Its Tom's way or the highway.

and

-(a hidden message)Tom's Hardware is best. Buy at Tom's Hardware.(lol yea right!)

What I think of Tom's Hardware is that that
website is like listening advice from a cardealer who is noted for selling lemons to everyone.

Reviews from some websites like amazon or netflix comes from the users of many people not a chosen few. Its a real shame we cant post our opinions on Tom's Hardware. LOL boy I tell you I could say some pretty funny things about that website on there. Funny also I bet they would be deleted quickly too. Dumb politics.
