Ironclads 2: Caroline Islands War 1885 reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Distant tropical islands have become the scene of forgotten conflicts of the fallen empires. The Industrial age has spawned strange ships. These Iron steam giants of cruisers and brisk gunboat can still raise sails. Instead of old pirate cannons with cores-long-barreled ranged guns. Two columns of such ships are Gradually and slowly floating, and from time to times the perfectly distinguishable projectiles are being fired at each other. Yes, this game is not intended to entertain the player. Yes, it requires dedication in understanding the gameplay, but even so it is the best and the only thing that is for the true fan of maritime history. Who doesn't understand, please just walk past. Few Sea Wolves-Welcome aboard!

If you are a fan of sea battles-the game you will like: (7 out of 10) Pros: [+] Nice graphics. [+] In the beginning it seems very difficult but after a few moves and conducted fights, very easy to learn. [+] Historically reliable, all ships present on the map correspond to reality (name, quantity of fleet, stuffing). [+] There are several tactical options, from the frontal destruction of the enemy fleet, to blocking supplies to the islands. [+] The Iscultic Indtelekt behaves quite well, if you look at other games about the fleet (same Total Var). Ships sometimes float zigzags, try to conduct bypass manyvars etc. [+] The Developers have touched the period, which in the games is almost unaffected (only seen Shogun 2: The Sunset of the Samurai) we in this game will see the first armadillos with cannon towers. Price Policy on discounts is great. The game Itself costs more than 200 UAH (500 rubles), on discounts up to 50 UAH (150 rubles). And the whole pack with 10 games, Monjo buy for 150-200 UAH (350-500 rubles) Cons: [-] Saw a number of bugs, but they were very annoying (For example, it was that the ship shoots and the core shells do not fly, although the fire is carried out and smoke from the fire goes. This was seen When changing the type of projectiles) [-] Insufficient information on the guns, and some systems of the ship, which are still in reality. Sometimes the fights are prolonged, up to the hour of battle is enough, in the game there is an acceleration of 2 times or it could be realized three times more scrolling. Note: [!] There is no Ukrainian or Russian language-for me it is not a problem but before buying the game get acquainted with it. [!] As I wrote above the game scares away, the fact that it in the beginning seems very heavy and not understandable, but when already understood that already want to play it, and then more new parts, because the game is really very good, and the subsequent parts as I see are finalized. [!] Developers-contact with bloggers, let them play. Many people do not know about the existence of this game, but the bloggers of the type I do not remove it because it seems heavy in the beginning and scares away. (Be sure to hire about her video-when the turn comes to her)
