PC Gamer - It’s a certain sort of vicious bastard that enjoys the tough submarine simulations of the Silent Hunter series. I’m one of them. You’re not only fighting on the side of the baddies, you’re a Bond villain; a sneaky baddy attacking civilians with underwater steampunk bombs. The more hardcore the mode, the crueller it is to the player. At the highest levels, you’re setting up the clockwork in your torpedos and manually working out your position from the innumerable dials and charts. Silent Hunter Online is no different.
