beyond all hope of practical rescue. Then I discovered the Open Horizons 2 mod, which, heavens above, makes the game playable, something Ubisoft wasn't capable of making their game. I have this feeling that both myself and Ubisoft owe the creator of Open Horizons quite a lot of money.
And I discover now that Silent Hunter 5 is actually quite a fun game. The UI and controls (and you're not allowed to rebind keys... what the fudgeknuckles?) could use a massive overhaul, but hey.
There's nothing like sneaking past the guards into Grimsby Port, crippling the only defensive vessel in the bay, and surfacing amidst the piers and sinking a dozen defenseless tankers with the deck gun while the guards blunder around outside like buffoons.
