I hear there's this new Silent Hunter game...

Looks like the model is free to play, flash based. How realistic will it be? How will the game manage time compression, transit to base, 3D crew, role-playing options, game saves, upgrades for pay, and many other elements?

Stay tuned.

I'm going to go ahead and just side with Jefmajor on his opinion on this.

(Be warned language!)

My thoughts:

WHY UBISOFT, WHY GODS WHY WHHHHYYY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!?!?!

Oh right, Money.

Or should I start a new thread?

By all means, please do. Somebody may have missed the others.

Sorry, Neal. I know you started the new forum that was asked for, but I couldn't resist. This is a good thing.

I didn't even realise it was in it's own little section. That's a good thing, it'll get people here and maybe into the other games.

Because UBISOFT now the name itself in other terms means (there not a hard company) and what does that remind you off? Exaclty they need some substance to get hard and get back into action.

As of now Rilder they have there head up so far up you know where the sun dont shine.

Enough said after playing SH 2, 3, and 4 which was the last
I had enough of Silent Hunter UBIHard oh sorry it's UBSOFT.

Hi guys I don't Normally like ranting well only a little but here we go I see The first post for this Game was in 2012 about feb time now its June 2013 as of Today and this SH online is nowhere to be seen actually online.

In my View this game is like 9 steps back after SH5 I wont be downloading it even if it is free its a complete waste of time.

got say I know sh5 has lush grafix but Still I find myself miss'in the old days of sh2 and stats and people coming together to play Subs vs dd's in a competitive role to show what Captains got what Glory under there Name.
and Sending many a Merchy to Davey Jones Locker by our Wolfpacks :P

BIg Shout out to the Stat Writers for making the days of past fun

Steed I also miss the SH/DC days when the play was between real man/woman and keeping the stats. I can't reason why they never made updated version of that SH/DC combination. They where the best and most memorable days of playing. I bet if the SH online had the Dc compnent it would be very successful.

Judging by the sparse screenies depicted on ubi's site, it looks like a dressed up Aces of the Deep or Silent hunter 1, minus the awesome campaign structure.

The golden age of gaming has ended.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to post-creative corporatism.

And the worst thing about this whole tragedy? The board members who give the nod to publish this trash are all patting themselves on the back saying, "Good job guys. Our customers will be really excited about this..." They really believe that they care more for customers than for money.

Excuse me, I'm going to be ill.

Just want to say, for a future SH title, i really wanted , except for submarines instead of planes.

This "SH online" is way off the mark. In fact, its a circle runner.

Exactly! Agree 100%. They got the dang thing in reverse.

Oh no Ducimus, on the contrary: That one despite being about airplanes is still probably more accurate as a subsim than SHO

Not to pre-judge the new online game, it hasn't been released yet and no one has tried it out yet to the best of my knowledge. Personally I'm not thrilled about it from what I read, and if UBIsoft doesn't listen to us gamers then I'm afraid all might be lost.

I've been playing SHII and miss the days of playing against Destroyer command. Those days were fun, SHIII was better and even though SH5 has all those bugs, I still enjoy playing it with a little help from the Mod developers. GWX improved SHIII 100% and it's too bad that GWX disbanded because I would have loved to see what they could have produced for SH5.

It is my opinion that if UBIsoft wishes to win our hearts and minds once again, they need to fix all the bugs in SH5 completely and make a new Destroyer Command and make it workable online with SH5.

Just a thought- and my 2 cents worth if anyone cares.

Pete
