Default I almost thought this was an old Microprose title!!!

I was about to post - Do people still play this game? Little did I realize it is actually a DW add on!

I use a an Amiga Emulator to play it
Makes much of Fun to engange a SAG with a Broadside of 12 Tasm..... then Features like the Listening Conditions map.

The Best in the Game is the Dynamical Campaign... No modern Game have reached thisat Time. Then i asking Why is this so...??

i had Red Storm Rising by Microprose on my Commodore Amiga back in the day, lol i was in the navy at the time and would spend my days as AB gunner aboard HMS Ambuscade and then by night i would be the commander of a hunter killer sub.

i had all microprose's games and RSR was one of the best, i was gutted when they were sold to hasbro and run down

I don't know how popular it is today but I'm quite sure people are still playing it somewhere. I still have mine for my commodore 64 and almost wore out the disk flipping it over endlessly to "engage the enemy" The manual that came with it was supurb and taught me things that were very useful in later games. Maybe someone should reproduce it, making S/C and D/W more understandable to most folks.... BTW, what ever happened to the sea lance asw missles and the swimout torpedoes??

I have the title on my Atari ST. The game had it's good points, but the mouse interface was so poor it was almost impossible to play. When a few feet from a canyon wall and it took the mouse 4 seconds to respond to a command, death was certain. I actually made it to the rondevous once.

Victims of the peace dividend. The Sealance as a sub-launched weapon was canceled, and the technology rolled into an updated, verticle launch version of the ASROC (VLA). The swimout torpedo tubes... I'm not sure if they got those through or not, I'll have to look into it.

Loved that game, as well. Did anyone every encounter the Ohio-class SSBN that the manual said you might come across?

In all the game runs I did, I never once saw her. IIRC, her sound signature was in the databank and I was curious to see what she would look / sound like up close and personal.

I played it on my old Tandy 1000 EX from 1990 to 1993. Put it on my laptop to college and played it until my HD fried out on an airplane. I had 4 torpedoes heading for the Kirov off Norway. I remember freaking out the weird guy next to me shooting the torps with the sound on in the plane.

Loved the MicroProse stuff...

I remember a favorite tactic of mine was to swim out my torpedos and wire guide em a safe distance away from my position then turn em toward the targets and go active. They'd launch all sorts of countermeasures and torpedos in the direction of that first active torpedo sonar... ah good times... good times. :hmm:

Didn't exist. You couldn't find it... that was the trick.

I loved this game... i played a lot with my 486 and DOS

Great dinamic campaign, i sometimes was ambushed by diesel submarines, very quiet and difficult to detect.
