Good Graphics and gameplay

Wow, you are good. Somehow you got ten words out of "Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic". At least its ten good words.

Do you think you could tell me what I need to know out of my college textbooks just by looking at the cover? That would help a lot! I would be willing to pay a small fee for a service like that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

You need to get back to your text books, this is way above your head. You miss the point like a bad arrow. The cover picture has been released and am wondering what others think of it. Also when new customers see the cover does it sell to them, and what does it say to a potential new subsimmer, stating the obvious is not necessary. Get it or dont sure others will.

Hmm if thats the cover then the U-Boat art is very very similar to the one on the very first edition ...Silent Hunter 1...in fact I'de swear its the same with a couple of torps photoshopped in !

Cover is nice. I just hope the game lives up to our expectations.

I'm personally worried about the whole 1943-issue, but I'm still hopeful that it will be a good game (after two patches or something like that) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Those Silent Hunter boxes indeed bring back the memories...some good some not so.

The first Silent Hunter was actually really quite good, the graphics by todays standards offer no comparison but the game-play had such a unique feeling about it.

SSI did a good job, relatively speaking of course and its one of my dearest memories of PC gaming back in the mid 1990's

I'de love to play the original SH again, its a pity new operating systems make these venerable old games obsolete. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Honestly the cover never has anything to do with the actual game anyway. Look at the past installments, its just art.
