Looks very good. Just a couple of observations:

1. I hope you can't con your sub from "outside view," as in the trailer. I recall a sub sim from a few years back where the trick was to navigate through minefields via outside view. Not, uh, exactly realistic. That being said, the underwater views were pretty fantastic here. I just hope this doesn't veer too far into the "arcade" direction, as opposed to a sim.

2. One torp taking down the "KG V?" I'm assuming (hoping?) here that this won't be the standard damage model. Probably they just wanted to show off the "sinking ship" graphics.

I'm guessing... um, make that "hoping".. that all realism settings were off. External views, exaggerated torpedo damage, and no way a sub would survive meeting a ship like that when they're surfaced, they'd be full of holes in no time. They wouldn't even dare having the periscope up...

Head on over to SimHQ and read the review.

The development team is from Romania and they have done a superb job. As far as realism settings go, you can tailor it to whatever your heart desires.

Jeesss... SubSim.com gives it a 100 score. Don't know if I've ever seen a game get a perfect score before.

Hello,
read reviews etc. over at Subsim.com or at the Silent hunter 3 forums. There are lots of trailers, you'll be stunned. In a way it's the Pacific Fighters for submarines :-). Realism is from ok to really hard, depends on the settings. Prepare to do some mathematics in REAL mode ... and quick, that is.
Yes, the sim is impressing and you do not need a top end rig: 1,3 Ghtz proc, 512 RAM, 128 Graphic - the sim has a good engine !
Greetings,
VII Cs :-)
