I have been playing this pack of games for about a week now, and while i love ship sims and war sims Im a little dissapointed with this one.
Graphically its not as polished as modern games, but zoom in on the ships and the detailing is very good and accurate. The sea however, especially when you zoom out a bit is basically just a blue back ground with a few waves.
Onto the major gripes. When startign a new game you might find some ships decide to steer let when you want right and vice versa while other vessels go the correct way. Next up is the direction of travel... again some ships obey commands and go forwards, on other occassions despite repeatedly clicking maximum speed forward it still goes backwards.
Commanding vessels individually is not possible, say you have 5 vessels some of different classes - some will go faster and some will turn faster, but the real problem is when you engage the enemy.... you can and do end up with ships going off in random directions with no control over how to turn ship A so it rejoins the rest of the column.
