Product Description

This is an expansion for Silent Hunter: Wolves of the Pacific and requires the original game to play. It is compatible with the digital and cd versions of the original game. Experience the thrill of the hunt! Prowl the waters as the captain of a German submarine in a never-before-seen theatre of operations – the Indian Ocean. Take part in the war against British supply lines off the coast of North Africa and support the Japanese war against the U.S. Navy. Developed by Ubisoft Romania, Silent Hunter: Wolves of the Pacific U-Boat Missions is an add-on that extends the gameplay experience by focusing on the historically accurate but largely unknown German U-boat campaign in the Indian Ocean during World War II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine on my machine running Window 7 November 13, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've owned (and enjoyed) Silent Hunters III & IV for years. Decided to spend the whopping $10 to check out the German side of things in the Pacific.

My understanding is that you must have Silent Hunter IV installed on your computer and updated to version 1.4 (think that's right) for this to work. I believe you can get all the updates from Ubisoft's website for free. I believe the u-boat addition is considered 1.5. I'm running Windows 7 and everything went off without a glitch during download and update.

Have been playing for a week or so and operations seem smooth. Nice new features and ships. Controls are very similar (but not exactly the same) to the US boats so the defection to the German side is easy.

My only concern is that it doesn't come with a reference manual for the u-boat (torpedo info, slightly different controls, etc.). Looked for one to download but couldn't find one. Oh well...

If you love Silent Hunter IV and want to see things from the opposite side of the war I highly recommend the download. Well worth the $10!

Almost changes it to a whole new game. Wouldn't want to play without it. Graphics are more appealing and the missions and playability are enhanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! August 9, 2012

It does work for Windows 7. You just need to have Silent Hunter 4 to play. It adds a new update and German u-boat missions. i have a mod that adds the Russian Typhoon class nuclear ballistic sub, and I launched nukes at enemy shipping. So much fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars I really do enjoy this game November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
I really do enjoy this game. My only critique is that the A.I. (artificial intelligence), is erratic in it's behavior. What I mean, is that the Destroyers when looking for you, will sometimes show idiot behavior, and act like incompetent buffoons, and yet at other times, they will be unrelentless, and will destroy you no matter how silent, how perfect you are in avoiding them. other than that, it's a great game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works quite well May 30, 2014
Verified Purchase
I've played all the Silent Hunter games and generally prefer the Pacific theater ones. This allows you to play some U boat missions on the Pacific and also provides the final patch for the Silent Hunter 4 game. That is why I got it.

The game is very playable except that it does occasionally have malfunctions such as the batteries not charging while running on the surface or the CO2 accumulating while on the surface. The solution to this is to save frequently.

I still give it four stars because there is no other game that addresses the Pacific submarine theater of operations as well as this one. Silent Hunter 5 is Atlantic (that is U-boat) based and, in the interest of cuteness, the interface appears to have been ruined. So, this is the only game in town. Had there been a good game to compete with this one I would only have given it 3 stars.

Excellent graphics! Like a whole new game when using some of the surface vessels. I found the mission maker a bit troublesome and "buggy".

its good, the product updated the game what was much needed. I'm just not impressed with enemy air coming in as much as it does. seems excessive.

2.0 out of 5 stars not worth money
Love the main game but the add-on is kind of lame. broke sonar on American subs, and did not really add anything to the game. Big let down.

This completes an already great game. Silent Hunter is the best submarine game ever made, in my humble opinion. Get it.
