UBI SOFT has made such a great game in the Silent Hunter series.So it has made me think...since I have played/seen the "BISMARK" single missions and have watched them evolve thru the EX-Camera. Why dont they came up with a game depicting WARSHIPS in battle? UBI-Soft can obviously doe this. I love watching the shells WIZZ by me and blow the krap out a a ship. I watched the battle of Lyte Gulf on the Military channel a few hours ago and thought how great it would be to own a game that would give me control of a BB or DD ect..ect.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Im sure it been asked before . Im waiting and praying for this to happen .

EDIT: I often try and hunt down a merchant ship that is armed and uke it out with it using my deck gun. Can be very entertaining. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Years ago the now-defunct SSI released a series of surface combat games. Didn't play them myself, but they looked rather detailed for their day [DOS]. Looks like it's time for the surface combat genre to get an update.

There was a good surface Pacific war game that came out a while ago maybe 8 years ago. The name of the game escapes me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif I had a blast playing it.

Kaleun1961 Would the game series you are thinking about be Great naval Battles

Yeah, that was it. I never did get a copy at the time because I had so many other things on the go.

I found it
Task force 1942... I was a little off with the publishing year. The game had great graphiics for it's time.

There is another game like that with better graphocs called Enigma:Rising tide, you can be a Sub, or some surface ships, with 6 different campign option (Surface or Sub for 3 Factions.)

I believe though, that the time frame is around 1936 or so.
