Fallschirmjager -> Naval War: Arctic Circle (4/10/2012 10:59:13 PM)

Any quick opinions? It looks sort of like the old naval warfare game Janes Fleet Command.

Looks pretty interesting for only $20. But if it is utter garbage I will stay away.

Been following that, if not purchasing it. Opinion seems generally positive, but I haven't really seen any comment from the sort of folks I would take seriously. A Harpoon lite might be fun, but a Fleet Command lite.. meh. Low price is a plus, but lack of an editor is a major downer and you have to question why it was excluded. Probably one to wait for a discount, which seems to happen much sooner than later in regard of Paradox titles these days.




Hertston -> RE: Naval War: Arctic Circle (4/11/2012 10:56:44 PM)

Bought it anyway, of course.. [8|]

Actually rather enjoyable so far. No doubt the Harpooners will crucify it for lack of accuracy regarding this, that, the other and everything else, and probably rightly so, but it does actually 'feel' more like Harpoon than it does Fleet Command, which was pretty much just a glorified RTS click-fest in simulation clothes. Might well develop into something quite decent if sales are sufficient to justify the usual Paradox DLC stream in due course.

There are worse ways to spend 15 quid (or $20, whatever it is over there).

The first patch (1.0.2.3) is out.

Should be downloadable from Steam. Sounds like the demo got patched as well....




Titanwarrior89 -> RE: Naval War: Arctic Circle (4/12/2012 10:30:25 PM)

Is this just a demo, or a full game?

Both are available. You can download the demo from Steam. Both the game and the demo were patched today...




The Plodder -> RE: Naval War: Arctic Circle (4/13/2012 12:07:29 AM)

The demo is actually the complete game but with only a few scenarios unlocked.When you purchase it you get the rest.
