View Full Version : Returning to the game

About five weeks ago, I played SHIII so much, I fried my graphics card. It gave me a good excuse to upgrade to a X800.

So, I'm returning to the game I love, but I've been reading that the 1.3 patch has ruined the game, so is it worth downloading 1.3, or should I just stay with 1.2?

IMHO, the game went backwards from 1.2 to 1.3. About the only good that I saw in 1.3 was the camera ability to follow your sub automatically without hitting the forward camera button. Porking the sonarman is a major killer in 1.3.

I don't understand what's taking the developers so long in fixing something that worked in the original release???? I'd stay with 1.2 .

Yes, I have sort of put it on a back burner waiting for a quick fix to the sonar problem. Of course, there has been no quick fix. I am about to uninstall 1.3 and go back to 1.2. Otherwise 1.3 is a decent patch-but the sonar thing just blows.
