Will keep the game in the "to buy list" on Steam, hope you can add playable Soviet subs at one point.

At the rate things are going, modders will beat them to it! The game is incredibly moddable, and some folks are already having mixed success with playable red subs as a mod.

Has anyone done the 1984 campaign? I finished my first today. It took... 15 days smile Commies lost of course. I accomplished 7 missions, sunk 22 ships (11 subs, 7 warships and 4 merchants). A bit to fast and short IMHO. I absolutely love the game but heard that sometimes war takes more than a year. So how come mine ended so fast? I was very succesful at completing everything that was expected, focused on orders, avoided random encounters, but still....

Will start another one and see how it goes.

And it was cool that I was given a command of first LA class sub - USS Los Angeles SSN 688 smile

It sure does. It has this awsome Hunt for Red October vibe. And the audio is amazing. Both game sounds and music.

How easy/hard is it to get into and play? I have zero prior experience with naval simulations...

It's on the level of Strike Fighters. We wanted to make an accessible sim.

IMHO it's very easy to get started. It's a lite sim. There are nice tutorials, very good and not so long (50 pages maybe) manual. The game is heavy on keyboard shortcuts so need to learn these but after playing tutorials you should know all of them. There are nice single missions with lot's of randomness so you can play them many times and learn stuff before diving into the campaign.

I also strongly recommend watching tutorials and streams from Jive Turkey on YT. He's done tons of them since release. He's an ex Navy (subs to be exact), knows his craft. His commentary is very informative. I still watch it regularly. It's a huge help for beginners.

Me neither, and I can safely say I'm having more fun with this than I have with a sim in a long time smile

It is Red Storm Rising with a graphical gloss (and some unrealistically high situational awareness due to torpedoes etc being drawn in the (optional) 3d environment for weapon avoidance (as long as you can detect them on sonar)).

While there might be a handful of differences beyond that I haven't seen anything substantial so far.

Yes Bisher, the Kresta - the nightmare. You can't sink him fast enough. Even after he is dead, his ASW chopper is still up there like a severed arm from a horror movie. smile


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

Was playing a new 84 campaign today. Still having problems completing mission but I got a little bonus today,,,The Kiev! biggrin

Made it back to Holy Loch with like 50% hull, a leaky reactor room and about 3 mk 48's left. Over 9 days I got the Kiev, a couple of escorts, 3 subs and some transports. Next up stop the Spetnaz landing from subs.

Then it was indeed a bad day for Soviet Naval Aviation, as they lost two Kievs to the silent service...
