Is there a SHIII Demo anywhere? I really wanna see what this game is about, I'm gettin real interested, but there doesn't appear to be one on the official website. Anybody know if/where there is one?

There were plans to release a demo after the game was on the market, but I guess the dev-team is buisy with yet another patch and SH4 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

My personal recommendation: Get it.

There are plenty of movies about the game, but honestly, they're all just poor examples, as sound and gameplay make the game more immersive than most other games I played. If you're only a little interested in WW2 subs, get it.
There are also plenty of mods and missions available, that make the game even better and the ongoing support is great, so far. After you sailed the Atlantik in a thunderstorm or spot the ships of your first convoy-encounter, you know you won't regret it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Sorry, BushRanger . . .

What the Capt. said.

Here's the page to dl the videos: http://www.silenthunteriii.com/uk/videos.php

And yes, the game looks much better in real time on your system than it ever could in a motion capture video.

I am/was completely never into anything naval. But after I watched the SH3 E3 trailer, it started to stay in my mind. Those U-Boats look pretty cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif Don't like the look of any other naval boats/subs. I don't have any money, and having a demo woulda helped me decide wether to cough up what was needed. Bugger.

PS Are there any Allied subs? In all the screens and videos, there is not any mention of Allied subs. Do they appear in the game?

I do not think there are any playable allied subs in Silent Hunter III.But I am not 100% sure.

There is a Dangerous Waters demo.it is a modern day sub sim.I do not know anything about subs but it seemed you needed a phd. just to target and fire the torpedoes.Looked pretty good though.

I understand it has evolved from the Janes line of games.

I've just spent a few hours dodging a couple of destroyers and eventually surfacing to torpedo a still burning tanker. Just like the film http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You think you've got away, then ping.....

Just like IL-2 you can lock yourself into the sub with the realism settings.

Looks like the community and dev team are going to keep cooking up updates etc.

All WWII U-Boat types are represented - no Allied subs (yet?).
