I've been hooked on SH4 ever since I got it, and in this community I've heard a lot of good things about SH3 as well, so I figured I'd buy it and install it on my lap top which cannot run SH4 very well. I can't find it in the stores, so I have to buy it over the net. I can find a downloadable version available for North America, but I can't find one for Europe. Anyone know where I can buy the game and download it? (Cba to wait for it to ship.)

Just a suggestion, get a hardcopy, rather than a download. Maybe it's all my Flight Simulator experience, but I find myself regularly (once every six months or so) re-installing that. Also, many people have several installs of SH3 on thier computer. One stock, one running GWX, etc.

As for where to get it, I'm in the US and used www.dogpile.com (http://www.dogpile.com) with "Silent Hunter 3" in the search box to find several copys (a fairly large number, really) of SH3 in the US, brand new, in the box. I think they re-directed me to www.Ebay.com (http://www.Ebay.com). In any case, I'm sure there have got to be similar groups that have brand-new-in-the-box versions of SH3 in Europe too.

SH3's a great game. Just be ready not to be dazzled by the graphics, since you're coming over from SH4.

You should be able to buy it in Europe from British Amazon:

Just don't accept the offer below.... (Expansion)

Yeah, after spending about an hour looking around the net for downloadable version without luck (strangely, downloadable versions are available in the US but not in Europe), finding only a site that lets you "subscribe" to games, I gave up and ordered a copy from a Swedish on-line retailer. Quite cheap, and hopefully I'll have the game on Friday.

I only needed to silence the spoiled child in me who "wanna play NOW". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Slightly off topic but Im just wondering if the d/l version is now updated to 1.4 or the same one as before.
