Did you ever wonder what it would have been like to sail Titanic into New York harbor? That would be serious business and so is this software. The program features various vessels, along with Titanic all then way down to a 35 footer, participating in missions in four different locations with you in command. The ships respond realistically to engine and rudder commands. I found it to be the closest thing to actually being on the bridge out at sea. Young gamers may not have the patience required to handle these missions in real time, reading charts, minding weather conditions and being ever watchful for other ships in the shipping lanes. The supplied documentation leaves a lot to be desired and is particularly silent on editing missions or creating your own which would be fun if they only bothered to explain how. And the scenarios for the power racing boat are unrealistic to the point of being rediculous, with jumps, requiring speed to accomplish, placed too close to spectator boats. But there are plenty of other pre-programmed missions for the other ships to keep you busy for quite a while. Despite a few shortcomings I do recommend this especially for boating enthusiasts who are house-bound during the winter months on land. Try it, full speed ahead.

Easy to use even on a laptop with keyboard controls. Pleasant experience with many ship selections and manoevering options available. Realistic shoreside simulations. Many advanced options. An enjoyable game for those who love the sea and always dreamt of being captain of their own ship. Watch for the icebergs!

As a fan of simulators (Microsoft Flight Sim 2004, Trainz Railroad Sim, Transport Giant), I came across Ship Simulator almost by accident but I'm glad I did. For a relatively simple concept, this game offers a whole lot of fun with plenty to do.

Basically, you are given 8 different types of boats and ships and each have unique controls. The vessels are as follows: The Titanic, Water Taxi, Container Vessel, Royal Yacht, Inland Cargo Ship, Harbor Patrol Boat, Tug Boat, and Power Boat (Speed Boat). These water craft are represented in excellent detail. Some larger craft have bow thrusters and rudder control and some just have rudder control. Large craft also have independent port and starboard throttles to maximize turning and such. It is all easy to learn and eventually master too.

The graphics are very nice to look at also. Besides great looking ships, the water effects such as the wake coming off the stern and the open ocean areas appear realistic. Islands, harbors, piers, and additional supporting scenery are quite well done. The game offers dynamic weather such as wind and rain which can have an effect on your vessels. As far as sound, each ship has distinct motor noise and water effect noise that adds to realism.

The game is mostly controlled by the mouse which is easy throughout. You can also use keyboard commands if you wish. Camera angles are very good and are controlled by the mouse. You can even zoom onto the bridge of whatever vessel you're using and see the ship instruments and the captain inside. I was surprised at the finesse it takes to maneuver the big ships like the Titanic, the Container Vessel, and the Inland Cargo Ship. From what I can tell, the ships respond very realistically.

It seems obvious that this is a first edition. Generally the ships handle very realistically but not being able to save your progress in a particular mission is a big draw back. Since you are dealing slow moving vessels it can take a lot of time to complete one mission. I can't always spend that much time for one mission. You must complete each in turn to continue to the next so I doubt I will ever get beyond mission 26 because of the time it takes.

The Titanic missions are the real treat to play. Being able to walk the decks gives a small feeling of what it was like for size at least.

I would recommend the game to any one that knows a little about that ship.

This game is fun for people who love to drive boats and everything about boating. If you ever wanted to be a captain and not go through the trouble of taking a test and buying a boat then this is your chance.

My son's statement (He is autistic) I have fun with the ships, but sometimes it takes a long to move them. I liked this game so much that I asked my mother for the add-on (more ships). Mom's review: He has played this game nonstop and appears to really love it. It was a good purchase.
