Silent Hunter 3, Superb !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, March 6, 2005
Reviewer: Mark Burnett from Basildon, Essex United Kingdom
I am writing this brief review after being one of the lucky 12 fans to be invited down to UBISOFT's UK headquarters to play the 'completed', (yes I did say completed)game. We were allowed free unrestricted access to all of the game types and the mission editor.
The game is simply outstanding, I wish I could do justice to the graphics, but words simply can't convey just how spectacular they are. The developers have clearly taken the technological advances in software and hardware to prodcue something special.
Gameplay is very atmospheric the sounds effects are well implimented with each vessel etc..
Once hit surface vessels can and do sink in a variety of ways: stern first, bow first, breaking up etc.... all in relation to where the torps hit. The explosions are breathtaking complete with water plumes, smoke and secondary's. The ships react to the damge infilcted i.e. hit the rudder and the target can no longer alter course !!!!
The games AI has to be seen to believed escorting warships use teamwork in hunting you down.
Finally multiplayer allows players to recreate the 'wolfpack' type tactics employed during the so called happy times and adds yet another dimension to what is surely to be a flagship title (pardon the pun.)
Thank you UBISOFT and the developers for providing a first class product for an often overlooked group.

A lot of amazon reviews are complete nonesense. I was a beta tester for a game once and between the game going gold and being released some 'reviews' came out. They were completely inaccurate - not just about subjective things that people have different opinions on but even straight facts such as saying things were in the game that weren't and vice-versa. I'm not saying this particular review is made-up like those ones, but still you need to take it with a pinch of salt. Also reading the text above, I could write a review like that right now based on stuff I've read on websites so it's hardly very useful.

Still not long to wait now before I get my pre-ordered copy complete with printed recognition guide :-)

Have fun
