 Silent Munter - Curse of the Pandemic Hacker Attack!

| | See all GordonTGopher's reviews (24)

Firstly let me state that i have been an avid silent hunter game fan from the dawn of the first Silent Hunter, right through to Silent Hunter 4. Now Ubisoft have brought out Silent Hunter 5 i was, like most fans, awaiting a fantastic game, how disappointed was i.
The graphics are on a par to Silent Hunter 4 but the major thing that lets the game down is the paranoid vision that Ubisoft have about Software Piracy, and the fact that you have to be connected at ALL TIMES to their server to play this game.
Now i know that not everyone has a 200Mps internet connection, but i live on Anglesey and the internet speed at best is 512kbps, when the wind is blowing in the right direction, theres a full moon etc etc. So sometimes my internet connection is down or very slow at best. Ubisoft...you have made a massive goof in my eyes and i just hope either you will redeem this and get rid of the ridiculous idea of constant online connection, if not then you might well loose your fan base for this game, i will not be buying this game until you sort this out. Other buyers beware...You have been warned!

 Without patching the holes, this games going to the bottom

Firstly I played and loved SH 3 & 4.
Good Points:
- Better graphics / water effects / light effects etc.
- Can walk around sub / interact with crew.
- New Story campaigns more involving.
Bad Points:
Buggy to the point of unplayable / unenjoyable:
Examples:
- Crew don't man deck gun.
- Torpedo system seems random copared to prevois games
- Can't enter sub pen on return
- Rock flost a few meters above sea bed
- Walking round sub becomes annoying (ladders)
Other points:
- Manual is more of a leaflet
- No tutorial to speak of
-Interface is much worse than previous.

In short needs about 10 patches to become playable, just is no fun as yet, but despite all that underneth does have that potential.
Should have been released 3 months later, big dissapointment.

 Top game - but let down by DRM

| | See all MrLee1's reviews (4)

The DRM system in this game is draconian.
You have to be online at all times to play it, even after starting the game. If you lose connection, or the UBIsoft DRM server is unavailable, you won't be able to play the game. And the UBI DRM server has already proven to be susceptible to Denial of Service attacks...

Great game, just let down by insane and really over the top DRM

 Excellent U-Boat Game.....When it's finished!

| | See all Numanoid64's reviews (1)

Have played this game quite a bit and my conclusion is that it'll be great when it's finished.
Lots of things in the game seem broken or unfinished. It's hard to use the Target computer as this feature is broken. So, torpedo shots feel like guesswork. Only 2 or 3 subs to choose from (All Mark 7 Uboats!

You can walk around the Uboat, but why would you want to?
You can go on long patrols but you'll run out of torpedos very quickly. (Not like the larger/later uboats)

This game will be great when they release the required patches, but for now it's unfinished and annoying. The problems with internet connection have not been apparent to me.

Graphics are very cool.
Sound excellent.
Gameplay broken!

Shame this does not live up to the high standards of Silent hunter 3 or 4

 Enjoyable sinking feeling

My main genre of game is strategy although I haven't really played many games on the PC for years. I thought that after playing a bit of the game, I would purchase it. The downside to this game, is that you have to be connected to the internet every time that you play this game, meaning if you have a laggy connection that disconects all of the time, then really you need to think twice before purchasing, or indeed god forbid you are still on dial up. If you have played other versions of Silent Hunter, then I do not think that you will be too dissapointed with this game, I have only just closed the game down, and already feel like having another go. A highish learning curve on how to sink ships, but once you get the hang of it, then it gets quite easy. The manual is not much help really, and contains very little information as to the finer details of things, it merely covers the very basic information. Overall you need the patience of a saint and a decent broadband connection to really enjoy this game.
