Default Jutland Pro free weekend

Jutland Pro edition + both ship packs are free to play this weekend till monday. All you need to do is get their Stormpowered client and install the game (~800mb), and you're good to go. You can give the campaigns etc. a try.

I gave it a chance and am hugely disappointed. Bought the SES Divorce Pack, Distant Guns + Jutland with all the DLC included.

After six-months or so of playing, even free and even for just a weekend SES' Jutland is still over priced.

To each their own I suppose. I've been playing Distant Guns since 2007 and I'm certainly pleased, though not without reservations. Big ones, even. Been more than worth my money however, and trying it free... don't got much to lose.

You never get back the time sucked out of your life by SES so to some extent there is something to lose but as you say, to each his own.

Am looking forward to Steel and Iron though:

I can live with a naval game that is graphics-poor provided it can replicate most of the factors affecting naval combat in the era being modeled. Jutland and DG cannot, hopefully Steel and Iron offers an improvement.

And sadly Steel and Iron seems to be graphics-poor

For me game graphics are largely irrelevant so if Steel and Iron captures the essentials of WW1 naval combat better than Jutland it will be an improvement regardless of how ugly it might be on your screen. Not too difficult since with the SES offerings it is virtually impossible to replicate the historical factors that affected both sides in a reasonable manner.

If it's all about graphics, go with Jutland and enjoy.

I recently got the old Great Naval Battles series working in DOSBox without using the original CD-ROM's (my seldom used CD player has issues) and compared the features in the GNBNA campaign with the Jutland and DG campaigns. For all its flaws and chunky DOS graphics, the former has some really excellent features that the latter lack entirely. Things like the ability to shadow and set fleet speeds, both of which SES has made impossible to do.

However, the graphics vs. realistic-play debate is unsolvable and it seems rather odd that developers cannot seem to deliver both.
