WolfPack description

Naval wargame on the Second world war.

The game is unusual – this I would like to warn all fans of the genre: it's not a "classic" wargame, there is great graphics and not standard gameplay. A choice of three hand – which is actually three games in one. You can play for German submarines, American warships or the Anglo-American convoys which ply the North Atlantic in the Soviet Union with a cargo of lend-lease. And, of course, the gameplay for each side is radically different, even the prospect of review are different.

What other "different perspective review" wargame? Yes, the fact that you see all over with the first person aboard the flagship of his small fleet of ships (in the game there are no large fleets), so it's understandable that when you play for the allies, in accordance with the foregoing, will see other ships in the game for the Germans – only the dark depths of the sea. Interface scale, but somehow immediately understandable (though takes a decent portion of the game screen). One of the most important options, – display the status of territorial waters of a country (that is, if you went to the enemy – then immediately you should start to prepare for the battle).

After the release of the game scolded – in my opinion, undeserved. She never claimed the laurels of a "real" wargame, on the strict historical accuracy and other details that were, perhaps, someone expected. Yes, in the game there is no campaign and no "career mode", the player-commander is almost completely impersonal. There are only twelve unrelated scenarios and an editor allowing you to create your own.

But the graphics is a success – perhaps in no other naval game that time will not meet this rendering and brightness, and sometimes inadvertently catch yourself thinking that the game begins to seem quest or at least the action of ω, but certainly not a naval wargame. "A step forward in graphics but a step back in gameplay" - perhaps it is true, but still not worth it to judge the game too harshly. Verdict – in their own unique thing, a very beautiful and rare (for the subgenre) easy to learn naval wargame, which suited more to fans of medium complexity games.
