The key to surviving this site is to not say something which ends up as someone's tag line - Steelgrave

"their citizens (all of them counted as such) glorified their mythology of 'rights'...and lost track of their duties. No nation, so constituted, can endure." Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers

Damn, that's old. :)

I remember having an email exchange with the developer and he loved the review, calling it a "blow shit up" kind of game. Wish I could play it again today, it was a lot of fun. The "big" reviewers of the day (e.g. IGN, Game Spot, et al) gave it poor reviews but they don't know what the hell they're talking about.

Never heard of it, but it does look like fun. Got to love any game where you can sink the Scharnhorst.
