If you want to play online you need SH 3.

Razor,

after all the glitches...and complete lack of help and "fixes", from Ubisoft...I'm thinking of going back to SH2. I'll probably give it another week or so, but if I don't get some answers to the problems I'm having with SH3, I'm "outta there" and re-installing SH2.

SH2 always worked for me...sound, graphics, gameplay...never anything more than minor annoyances. I wish I could say the same for SH3. Other than graphics, which have been flawless AFAIC, SH3 has been a real disappointment , so far.

Where's the deck gun sound? Why is my sonarman a mute? What is with the simple task of changing a torpedo loadout? Why does a change in navigation result in an "all stop"? (a good way to get dead!).

And these are only after 5 days, a complete re-install and much cussing and lost hair.

Razor...you may not experience some or any of these problems but many have. I would wait and see if solutions are forthcoming before spending $40 on SH3...I wish I had.

Vic

Silent hunter 3 has its bugs now. Sure. But it is dramatically reduced in price and in my opinion, now worth the money.

All you have to do is down load the official patches and then use beery's RUB mod and its a kick **** game.

Too bad a community mod had to do UBI's job. But heck, it costs ubi less that way.

Viciii3, I guess it is time to go back to SHII if all you can do is complain. But wait.... did you ever stop to think it's not SHIII that's causing problems, but your computer and it's hardware? Hmmmmm, I guess not.

I thank everyone for there very informative replies!The reason i asked about ubi was that there is never anyone playing on the ubi game sight?I got these games because they looked really good to play!I have been playing Il2 Forgotten Battles,a flight sim , but now im looking to move into this sub versus boat setup! by the way does SH3 have ships that you can use to hunt subs ? or do you have to buy another game for that too? viciii3 thnx for your reply, im keen to get the patches for SH2 and maybe we may do battle agaist each other sometime lol tnx again.
