Just found out about this game and yes. This is extremely scummy IMO.

I started playing it, but it doesn't run smoothly on my computer. The submarine is beautifully made, but the permanent sequences when you open doors or use ladders annoy with time. Also the control is not so good. These things keep me from playing for now and I hope that this will be fixed with patches.

If they have a complete russian submarine designed in 3D with characters, why do not design a Silent Hunter game style?. Not only a combat game, but with all the experience to repair the sub under water after an torpedo hit, or depth charges attack?

@Penner10000: Oh that wasn't because of your system, the game is stuck on 15 fps even if you have a supercomputer

I refunded it after the first hour, it really is that dreadful. A few notes I wanted to share , rather than wasting everybody's time doing a full review:


- The Kursk is more of a background prop for a spy story, rather than being the actual subject of the game


- The game is basically software technology from the early 2000s updated with graphics from the mid-2000s


- The writing is best summarised as "what if James Bond was written by a 12-year old". It is cringeworthly bad and at times I actually felt uncomfortable playing the game.


- The clickboxes are terrible. You have to stand in a very specific way to interact with an object. This problem is exerberated by the dodgy walking mechanics (it seems the floor is made up of points, and by "walking" you just go from point A to point B, like it was in the early 1990's)

- The facial animations are hilarious, and by far the best thing about this game. Every time the face of an NPC came into view I chuckled.



I really wanted to like this game, since it looked so promising and it IS a submarine game, but it is one of those games you'll have to avoid at all costs. Especially if you're interested in the real story of the people that were onboard the Kursk

That is really sad what happened to this game. I was really looking forward to it but sadly all i experienced in the game were bunch of fetch quests. Go there, bring me this, now bring this to that guy. Now go there and bring this here, but to do so you have to beat my high score at this boring arcade game. This was a point where i just rage quit the game. I was in the middle of another fetch quest but character would not give me this until i beat his high score in arcade room. That arcade room game was so terrible. It was just wasting my time.

The story was dull, i have wasted almost 2 hours running from one end of the boat to another bringing stuff to various people. It took so long because off all the compartment animations and loading new sectors were so slow. This was the first time in my life were i felt that a game just wastes my life. I decided to refund it because i was just under 2 hour threshold.

Now just watching some youtube lets play video of the game with 2X speedup.

this would be too awesome, so I'm sure nobody will actually do it, we will be stuck with the Type VII's (and with luck some of its boring variants) forever

All of the gameplay videos I've seen so far make it look like Alien Isolation, except without the alien and the isolation.

To be honest, Alien Isolation had some pretty good atmosphere. A lot of it had to do with the imminent threat of being attacked by aliens though. What might be the threat in Kursk? Mermaids? haha
