I used to play a lot of Silent Service back in the day (not that that makes me feel old or anything). More recently, my brother had Silent Hunter IV: Wolves of the Pacific; I test-drove it a bit but never got really addicted. Between those two games, I had played other sub-related odds and ends, without ever getting too interested in any one game. Do any other TMPers have a history with submarine simulation games?

I used to play a lot of Red Storm Rising when in college. I tried others, but just could not get the same feel.

Sub war 2050 link
more of an underwater fighter game than anything like modern subs but it did have thermal layers and cavitation to worry about.

Red Storm Rising, Harpoon, and Silent Service 2 (started so many S-Boats on what turned into one-way cruises…)

Silent Service for NES became one of my most favorite games to play back in the day, so much so that my oldest nephew gave me a copy as a gift one Christmas. I could play for a couple of hours stalking Japanese shipping, dodging destroyers, and generally becoming a terror in the South Pacific! I really had some great times with it.

Oh, and the theme music to the game? Unforgettable!

Silent Hunter III is the last version I have. Haven't played in quite some time, might just have to fire it up tonight!

Subwar 2050 was fun.

The original Silent Hunter was my favorite. I prefer Pacific theater and Gatos to U-boats. I haven't played the very newest SH's though. I guess I should look into SH-3.

I also enjoyed the old 688 Attack Sub game from the late 80's, but it was my first.

Jane's 688i was wonderful for the waterfall diagram alone, but I got too frustrated that I was apparently the only one on the boat, and had to turn off the towed array deployment motor myself, etc.

Back in the late 80s I played a lot of Red Storm Rising. A LOT.
