What They Said

"I feel uncompelled by Silent Service. It's disappointing, because with just a little tweaking (and extra bytes, I suspect) it could have had that extra something." (Read Full Review)

"This is a real simulator, with more controls than a NASA Space Shuttle. It's very complex, so only buy it if you intend to really get down to it." (Read Full Review)
