I discovered by accident that if you rum up against a detroyer it will sink after awhile, like 2 cars trying to run eachother off a road, and you will take no damage.... But Ramming with sink you quick.

You know, I've noticed how these shots are beautiful and like looking at paintings.


The game looks "painting-like" as well. I know its the developer's style to make things look like they did in color WWII film and 90% love it... it's just that for me it looks weird. It's a little TOO much like WWII film you know? Maybe after a few patches it will look a little more stabilized. Just my two cents.

I must admit that this is the most uniquely colored and presented naval game I have ever seen.

Just a few shots...

Not really sure how it was able to get in this position since not much of it is under water..



Random plane fell up the sky after I shot at it...then soon after it fell back down to earth..


Just got back from my 3rd trip out..96k tons down at the bottom of the sea..

Actually, yes. Also, paid visit to San Fransisco to see the Golden Gate, Galveston hust for the fun for it and New York to see how it is. Too bad there wasnt the Moltenort memorial in Kiel, it was marked on the map tho.

i have yet to come across a naval battle. i sat in the loaction of the midway single battle in my campaign and nobody showed up. i made it to the invasion of borneo too but only found some ridiculous waves in about 100 feet of water and a task force that wasnt travelling. the waves were so big at periscope depth id go from not being able to see a thing to having my bow exposed. took out three takao cruisers tho















she never sank...i had to put her down with another torpedo. and those destroyers somehow never saw me? water looks glorious but it doesnt work like water sometimes...

Not much of a storyteller myself but I'll give it a try

So after my 3rd trip out I got offered a new sub. I accepted commanding my new home, the USS Drum. It was a upgrade to a Gato. My mission seemed to be stuck on repeat as for many others. I was to ship an agent somewhere north in China or close to China at least.

Before this trip I haven't really been getting much action. Just done my mission and maybe taken out some randoms in enemy harbors. Maybe taken out a few things on the way there and back.

This time I get to my destination as the other times. I toss the poor guy off the sub, and as always his little raft rubs against my sub which makes the sound of a battleship trying to get inside. I pull out as the sun set. Just before the sun is gone I get a report of a convoy pretty close. I rarely manage to get to these in time. I rush south to intercept. Slow down to 2/3 and go to periscope depth. I head straight towards them but make sure I approach my targets at least in an angle. I go through the convoy smoothly taking out 2 x Small, 1 x Medium and 1 Large freighter. I add a Mutsuki Destroyer to the list as I head for home.

...now what, another convoy is heading straight for me before the last destroyer hits the bottom of the ocean. It's perfect..just the way I'm heading to get back home. I know I won't have enough torpedos left for much but I can't just let this chance go without trying. I go straight in like the last time. I start going after the large freighters. This time I end up with 1 x Small, 1 Medium and 2 x Large freighters. The medium freighter was the last one and didn't go down so easily. Thought I'd finish it with my deck gun after the destroyers left. After they were some good distance I surfaced only to see they speed up and came right for me. I went down to periscope depth again. I was only 50 meters or so from the heavily damaged freighter at this time. Figured they would go away again...but oh was I wrong. They kept circling me throwing out depth charges all over the place, but seeing I was so close to their freighter they couldn't hit me. At this point I was out of torpedos and they wouldn't do anything else then that. I had to try to run for it...and I did...without going deeper. Of course they came after me but it didn't end the way any of us thought. Both of them died from running me over. I didn't get any damage... Apperantly the sub is razorsharp..maybe even coated with explosives because it makes things explode for no reason.

After that my crew finally got some rest and looking forward to getting home for some new shiny medals. USS Drum will soon be back on new adventures. Lets just hope I don't get the same d**n mission.
