It is inexcusable that the same bugs from 3 and 4, and in some cases previously fixed bugs, are still present in this game.

Then there's a list of important fixes like improved AI, shadows, the ability to import SH4 ships and more that mysteriously disappeared from the change log.

Unless I see a radical departure in support and customer service, this is my last Silent Hunter game. These guys have had years to fix big issues and they're still there.
