Description of Das Boot: German U-Boat Simulation

A quirky action-oriented sub simulation that's disappointing given Three-Sixty's expertise in realistic wargames and reputation established with Harpoon. Although Three-Sixty obviously tries to imbue the game with realism, the game comes across as an arcade/wargame hybrid that can't decide which kind of game it wants to be. Bright VGA graphics and lots of gameplay options, including some inventive scenarios, help elevate the game somewhat.

The developers thought of everything, including dud torpedoes (an actuality during the first years of the war). This is not an action game for those who want to kill everything in sight, but a strategy game for those willing to live the experience. My particular version came with a poster sized map of the North Atlantic (used to locate your area of patrol) and the ability to use a microphone/headset for simple voice commands.

Nice game, good graphcs considering the era. Unfortuneately, there is little to no documentation left. Figuring out the keyboard stuff is impossible.
