1.0 out of 5 stars Losing Steam, July 7, 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ship Simulator Extremes - PC (Video Game)
I have Ship Simulator 2008 and I was intrigued by this title, so I ordered it and have had nothing but trouble getting it started because of an error activiation code-duplicate entry. It took me numerous e-mails with Steam support to get this straightened out and when I got to the download stage, it is soooooooooo slow it will take hours to get there, if not more. Their steam ship barely moves at 2kts! After several days of frustration, it is not worth it, and Steam support is less than stellar. In this case the steam boiler powering their turbines has fizzled out and sprung a leak, as far as I'm concerned! From now on if I see a Steam sim I'll steer hard turn to port or engage emergency reverse. Loading and running any of the Silent Hunter series on my machine is smooth sailing compared with this.
