The current version of the original Harpoon game is now called Harpoon Classic Gold is pretty good. It is worth buying from the AGSI website to hold you over till Matrix has a chance to up date it and publish a new version. As it stands right now, they have updated the Game Engine so it is a litte meaner and harder then the original. Things such as submarines being harder to detect, the AI randomly attacking any of your units that were with in range of his air units, submarines going in the for the kill if they were controlled by the AI. On top of that they have created an modifiable database and database editior using Acess 2000. So if you can add or modify just about everything in the game from the bases and thier location to building your own version of a supercarrier. With the new database there also came to be an update to the last battleset called European Campaign 2003. This was one where the US and Europe had a falling out over the US response to a terrorism incident and went to war with each other. The maps had been colorized in the game so to a point it projected what it would look like if you had a satelitte view of the battleset. Just before AGSI allowed Matrix to use the license there was a beta to produce the Western Pacific. From what I saw the map stretch from the international date line on the eastern boarder all the way to just past Bangkok on the western border and included parts of the Bearing Islands and went as far south as Northern Australia. It was still in beta had has some rough parts to it, in this beta they were also testing mobile platforms. I don't know how far they were able to get with them besides creating the icons and getting some of them to work (such as SCUD launchers) like they should.
Most Harpoon players I know thought that the 3-D graphics that were shown by SSI/UbiSoft when they had the H4 license were nice, but really cared about game play. In that could they build thier own scenarios, how aggressive was the AI, since Harpoon 3 had come out during that timeframe the other question was could the modify the data base. After Ubisoft fumbled with H4, everyone retreated to playing either Harpoon3, Harpoon Classic, or both. I have both and enjoyed them both. I really can't wait to see what is going to happen when Matrix picks it up and I wish that Matrix would give us an update as to what is going on.
Take my word for it. You never want to be involved in an “International Incident”.
