DOS - 1989
Also released on: Mac - Amiga
Description of Harpoon
The best naval simulation ever made, period. Based on Larry Bond's realistic tabletop wargame of the same name, Harpoon not only is faithful to Bond's game but adds many great features only possible on PC: comprehensive unit database, intuitive mouse-based interface, and outstanding scenarios, both historical and hypothetical.
The level of detail, complexity, and nuances is staggering-- you will discover new gameplay subtleties every time you replay the game, for years to come. Not to mention learning a thing or two about classified information . Steep learning curve maybe the only fault here-- but hey, it IS a hardcore naval simulation :) Two thumbs up!

I would pay a large sum for this game if you could get it back on modern computers. One of the greatest games of all time.

It's really beneath you to advertise the original version but only provide a link to the commanders version. They are NOT the same, and the original DOS version is the only one that allows completely manual loadouts and allows you complete manual control to experiment with 'unapproved' tactics.

I would just about kill for a iOS version of this game for my iPad.

I bought this in 1989. I still have Harpoon in my sim-directory today. That's for a reason.

Harpoon - old school Maritime war-game, based on the Board game. Driving one of the parties (USSR or NATO) offer 13 scenarios of a possible world war. The action takes place in real time, so the game is quite dynamic and realistic. Graphics in these games do not count.
