Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic is a simulation game in which you take control of a German submarine during the Second World War. You'll need to prey on Allied shipping while avoiding enemy destroyers and other threats. Fans of historical naval combat will find a lot to like here, but this is definitely a simulation game for sim game lovers: the interface is detailed and complex, and the learning curve is very steep. If you persist, there are a lot of complexities to uncover, but you may have to be patient.
