Submarines..now that would be neat.
« on: December 12, 2002, 10:57:26 AM »
Any good submarine games that you can recommend for the Amiga? (Except Silent Service) present-day and WWII, doesn't matter.

Being an experienced virtual submarine driver it would be nice to take command of a submarine on the Amiga platform..  :-D

I really liked Red Storm Rising. I played it to death on my C64, and recently picked up a copy for my A2000.
There are few problems in life that can not be solved with a sufficient amount of explosives.

I never knew it was released for the Amiga. I had it on my C64 too. :)

Subwars 2050 is the best, but like a flight sim under water. Not a typical Sub game. COOL though!

688 attack sub is nice...
My personal sub-sim favourite is Aces of the deep for PC, though...

Yup, Aces of the Deep...must have spent several months on that one.. :) Then Silent Hunter II came, and stole my heart away.  :-D

Never tried that one.

Seems like I'm going down to the video game store after work today.

If you get SH II then remember to go to www.subsim.com and download the realism-pack, the 1024*768 patch for it, Messerwetcher. (or how they spell it...) as well as the "2nd Kampanje" campaign, since the game out of the box is pretty flawed when it comes to realism. But after adding the above mentioned mod's it becomes a blast to play.  :-D

(even graphically too... ships burning, leaking oil on the surface, and emitting this enormous smoke cloud that can be seen far, far away... eyecandy heaven. :)

I'd suggest the classic Wolfpack, from the makers of the later Comanche series (Novalogic). It even sports a multiplayer option =).
