This is just blatantly disrespectful to the people who died on Kursk and also for their families, some of whom are more that aware this game is out there and for them to have the thoughts that someone is having enjoyment out of their loss and suffering is to me just totally unacceptable
To be fair, you can say the same thing about the Silent Hunter games, where you actively kill merchant sailors.

Not quite the same in one sense yes you could however the Silent hunter games were set in a war time scenario and as harsh as this sounds the people who lived it have passed on and enough time has passed for it to be acceptable

Kursk was a peace time accident more over recent and living memory where the families of their loved ones are still very alive and well and the feelings are very raw and upsetting.

The Silent hunter games also have a big element of fiction while boat numbers may be correct and types of ships correct the reality is the Silent hunter series is not based upon any one submarine story like this one is.
