Naval War: Arctic Circle reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
A very simplistic maritime strategy. In its simplicity there are both advantages and disadvantages, which are greater. Advantages-The interface is intuitive, I confess, for this reason, I did not even really lie in training-and because of the same, perhaps, something missed. Available orders a little, the list of weapons and means of detection of each subordinate unit is clear and obvious, the map is minimalistic, but understandable, cute such graphics external camera (but cute after Fleet Command, of course), And hence the disadvantages-there Sense of limitation in actions (though, as far as I remember, Fleet command is not much in this sense and differed). After the same Fleet command and Sub command/DW interface is Alaskan and "non-serious", there is no handbook, the appearance and armament of the available Ednitz (which, incidentally, a little) are periodically surprised, TDR only one. There are questions on AI, and periodically it is unclear at all what is happening-suddenly something destroyed their ships, suddenly arising contacts, there is distrust of the simulation of the effectiveness of weapons (although who knows it, as it really is, but still). I can recommend if for someone Fleet Command is too old, and Command: Modern Naval/air operations is too complicated, and in other cases-a couple of times to play and all. And Yes, having read the reviews, add-the game may seem "simplistic" only if the player before that even a little interested in the fleet and sea weapons.

DO not buy this game! I have paid for it 118 rubles, the Russian language in the game is disgusting, in the right Gameplay places not that the translation, there is not even the text, the name of the technique in English, the name of guns and sonar in English, descriptions of their purpose is not, than one plane Different from the other is unclear, in the game planes before launching can be equipped with different rockets and equipment, but what is not to disassemble it, in RUSSIAN TO PLAY is IMPOSSIBLE, in English the same, the game is demanding! Despite the graphics, but the hell with him, it's not in the chart, the bugs are crazy! A lot of them, Bugs Razslaves, the game on the level of VETA version, and the developers of the Nesobrayuza to fix it, the plot is disgusting! It would be better to just not be! The presentation of the plot is surprisingly d_ebil, after a while you start to get lost who said what and in what order! Missions and techniques in the game a lot, clear training is absent! While the teaching of the TUeV is so, it looks like it is a kind of training, then you play a career and in the coach pass another training, if I did not watch the video in the internet about the gameplay I would be a string to understand how to play it, despite the fact that this genre I wish! IF THE GAME WAS DRIVEN TO UMA IT WOULD BE A TACTICAL MASTERPIECE, AND NOW IT IS AN UNFINISHED PROJECT OF AMAZING COMPLEXITY AND UNPRECEDENTED GLUINESS, I PLAYED IT, I HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT THIS GAME, BUT TO ADVISE HER NEBIRUS, SO KA IS CHEATING, I SPENT 118 RUBLES, I REGRET THAT THEY HAVE SPENT, THE PRICE OF THIS GAME 20 RUBLES WELL 25 IF THE DEVELOPER GATHER TO RELEASE THE PATCH AND LOCALIZERS FINISH THE TRANSLATION! Good luck!
