"Stay clear - worst support experience"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I pre-ordered, paid and cannot use the product as it insists that I do not have an internet connection. I will scan the internet for a solution for 1–2 wks and then return the product. Customers should not have to be ‘techie-geeks’ in order to have enjoyment in the little leisure time one has and not spent weeks on the internet to trying to find solutions and be disappointed by non-responsiveness by UBISoft. I have SH3 with GWX3 and the IL series. One generic advice by UBIsoft was to de-install internet security software completely – what is one to say? A very sad state of affairs. Otherwise with more thorough testing and taking a customer-centric approach this could have been a great product. I hope you have more luck. Regards, Mike

"Good News!: DRM removed, no internet connection to play now"
5 stars"

Ubisoft have removed the always on connection now. You apparently need to untick cloud saving and select force offline and it works without any internet connection needed.

This has been confirmed by people with the game.

"One simple word for this - "BAD""
1 stars"

I have been a Silent Hunter “Nut” since they first came out and was so excited to hear about Silent Hunter 5. I pre-ordered a copy and installed it the day I got it. Well, I've played a bit of it and now will put it back in the box. Its very buggy and with the DRM this makes the whole game not worth playing. I've got so far in a few missions just to have the game shut down without warning or saving – loosing all my progress just because my internet connection reset for a second. This whole game feels more like a Beta version than something that was meant for the open market. Even the good old short-cut keys of the other versions have gone, now if you want to man the cannon or anti-aircraft guns you need to walk there and do it yourself. I do admit it was fun to begin with and being able to move around the u-boat, it does bring a little life to the game but I'm sure that they could have left the short-cut keys in for those that just want to sink ships. I MIGHT play this again if IF UbiSOFT patch up the bugs and problems with it.

Silent Hunter is the most award-winning submarine series of all time, with nearly 1.5 million copies sold worldwide. This franchise's previous release, Silent Hunter: Wolves of the Pacific, made a lasting solid impact on the franchise's growing fan base after it was released to worldwide critical acclaim, including being named 2007's "Simulation Game of the Year” by PC Gamer.

  • VIEW AS A CAPTAIN: Walk through highly detailed submarines in the new first-person view and access every part of your U-boat.
  • BECOME A REAL LEADER: Interact with your crew, watch them perform their daily jobs and experience the tension and fear inside the U-boat through the new advanced order system.
  • WAR STRATEGIES: Choose your own strategy and select your targets with a new objective-driven, dynamic campaign.
  • ENEMY REACTIONS: Open new locations, upgrades and resupply possibilities, while the Allied ships adjust dynamically to your approach. Your actions will directly impact the evolution of the campaign.
