The first thing you will notice is the great graphic design, including the excellently modeled ships you can see on the horizon. Still, before you start playing the game I would recommend you to spend some time in the Museum section, as it contains all the vessels that appear in the game and an in-depth interview with one of the German aces, Erich Topp. Graphics are one of the best aspects of the Silent Hunter II. All form the smoke on the horizon and the excellent explosions, to the detailed design of the deck gunsÖ all this can be seen in the game. The waves will slowlyÖ wave, as they glisten on the moonlight and crush against the sides of your sub as you dive inÖ The most important thing in each simulation is the verisimilitude of the atmosphere. The atmosphere in Silent Hunter II is setting new standards for all future submarine simulations. Of course, many things will depend on the difficulty level you decide to play. You will be able to choose playing on the easy skill level (with a practically indestructible submarine) or the hard level, meant for true heroes of the deep blue sea.
