Isn't a map of the pacific just a big piece of blue cloth?

In the case of Silent Hunter, it also includes merchant routes, air cover, and military bases. The first of those being the most fun.

Cutter - Do you also want the part of "Having your sister?" too?

See what happens when you're stuck in a ship for 6 months with only Seamen?

Maybe the Collectors Edition includes some Vaseline (tm) or KY Jelly just for those extra long outings at Sea?

Hmm?

It's a game. Who gives a shit, except for you anal wargamer types. I just want to play my version of Das Boot in a modern WWII sub game.

Anyway, demo???

There were Germans in the Pacific; don't forget they bombed Pearl Harbor.

We won't forget that...

SH4, like SH3, will be a slow paced, realistic submarine game. Don't expect fast paced action most of the time. That's part of what makes it so great and realistic. You'll often spend 30 minutes to an hour (real-time, using time compression) before you even make contact with an enemy ship during a campaign patrol.

Because of this, it is extremely satisfying when you succeed in sinking an enemy warship and escaping unscathed.

SH3 is fantastic, and SH4 will no doubt be as good, but most likely better.

It's basically SH3 with serious visual and game mechanic improvements, and you'll be playing as a US Captain in the Pacific, instead of in the Atlantic aboard a U-Boat (SH3).

"Strangely enough i'm looking forward to this. I upon Silent Hunter 3 and that wasted hours of my life. Brilliant fun. I just hope this is more of the same really."

I am also spent many hours with the last game even suffering threw SF copy protection glad they dumped that!

Is this a fun game or a stupid sim that has 10 million commands to learn. I think I might want to look at this game. Is there a demo coming ?

Well I've always eyed the series but never really tried it out and have enjoyed games like Klingon Academy Bridge Commander, SFC etc. Now I know they are different genre's but basically it's submarine combat.

How easy would Silent Hunter 3 be to get into for a complete noob? Or am i looking at a Derek Smart type manual?

Don't be an asshat. There were German subs in the Pacific. They were sent to teach the Japanese how to build submarines (Specifically, pressure resistance in the metallurgy of the keel and hull to go to greater depths.)

I believe most were Type IXs.

Educate yourself before opening your mouth and showing everyone here what a total dickbag you are.

I know that. Everyone with half a clue knows that German sub tech was very sought after during WW2 because they were the best subs.
He was asking about "playable" subs though. So... is it your idea of fun to drive an unarmed sub from Germany to Japan so the Japs can do tech research? Dumbass.

dickbag, haha thats a new one for me.

Last sub game I played was silent service on the original NES. Had alot of fun with it. I'd like to try one these days, but I find that I usually don't have the interest in simulation stuff that I used to.
