Thanks for the heads-up Kramer.
I would never have paid full price for this but the gold version for £3.39? That's a steal for me.

Steam is kickin' my arse with all these sales. Over the holidays I bought the following:

Dirt 3
Hearts of Iron 3 Collectors Ed.
Memoir '44 (free)

I had my finger on the trigger ready to pull on the following but held off: Shogun 2, Magic collection, GRID

I dont have time to play all this stuff, but I keep making these purchases!

I am assuming it uses the standard STEAM DRM instead of whatever the original used, but I don't really know. Haven't even installed my copies yet...along with most of the other stuff I was coerced into buying over the holiday break by crazy good sales.

Got this after reading here about the bargain download on Steam, Have to admit, while it has the quality appearance of Russian sim software, the game play and depth is rather poor and dissapointingly arcade like (even with the settings ramped up). Near miss for me, dont think I will spend much time with it. Shame, if they took the fetters off, and had more space on the field of play and a more indepth torpedoe targetting system, I think this would be pretty darn good. 6 out of 10 from me

Russians just don't know how to make a fun sim "game," at least from a western standpoint. Most be some sort of cultural thing.
