World of Warships? Utter garbage. I wish they had a game like Battle Stations Pacific but with Modern naval and air warfare. High graphics FULL CONTROL of all assets and a fully customizable battle mode
AC: Black Flag was a good game but it wasn't good enough. You can't change the type of ship you have and no matter how much you upgrade you still don't match the high ranking Man O' War ships lurking around. You can destroy them of course but when you're facing 4-5 ships at the same time you realize something Brigantines suck ass!!! You'd think they'd at least let you take the Queen Anne's Revenge.
hey guys, im looking for a game that needs these requirements:
- Naval Battle
- Normal land battles
- Good storyline
- It has to be a bit like assassins creed (choosing between missions on land or going on the water)
- Open world like assassins creed so you can explore
- Preference: Battleships with sails like in assassins creed odyssey, black flag, rougue
- An option to not only change the looks and performances of your battleship, crew and stats but also to enter ships and having the option to use them (example like it would have been with black flag: youd start with a brik but you enter a frigate succesfully, so you get the choice to keep the frigate and use it or sink it)
- An option to use captured ships in a fleet so you can have an npc fleet with ya
Anyone knows such a game? if not... someone should really make it.
WoWS? Seriously? I was all onboard when you started with Harpoon and then again with Pirates, but WoWS? It's a garbage game with great graphics. That's all it has, great graphics. GNB is ten times the actual game that WoWS is. You also skipped Red Storm Rising.
not trying to say that wows is bad but war thunder is a lot more realistic, i know it has all sorts of game modes in it but I'm just talking about the navel section, I'm just surprised how its not on the list
I feel like PTO 4 for the PS2 was a severely underrated game. What other game can you control up to 3 fleets made up from everything from destroyers and subs, to battleships and carriers? And you could make your own class of stupid OP ships with stupid thick armor and massive guns.
Alright, I've played a few of these and my favorite, by far, was Enigma: Rising Tide. The ability to command a submarine and engage in sea battles using only your voice to command your boat and crew gave you a real Captain's experience of the situation and allowed you to experience the true horror of engaging destroyers and battleships while sinking enemy merchant shipping with an eye on torpedo counts and other munitions. Plus, you get the option of captaining a destroyer, battleship and even a PT boat! Still love that submarine warfare though.
Pirates?! Battleships?! Best naval combat game? Are you having me on? Where is "Command: Modern Air/Naval Operation"? Where is "Atlantic Fleet"? Where is "Carriers at War"? And forget this pay-to-win waste at no.1! Mojo has not a clue what a good naval game needs. Only Harpoon is a good naval combat game in this list. And if you take Silent Hunter, than play Silent Hunter III please because the community has fixed most of the problems/bugs and NOT Silent Hunter IV witch is still full of bugs.
"For almost as long as mankind has been fighting people on ships..." That's a rather bold claim considering naval battles have been fought for at over an entire millennium. That would require some ingenious creativity for people around that time.
There is also this greek mythology ship rts. It's like age of empires but all your units are ships. You collect some sort of yellow stones and build for wich a ship has to go near land and a few guys pop out to build it. You can destroy enemy ships by shooting, ramming and entering. Does someone know the name of it? Npcs include cyclops.
I just want one good, modern single player naval combat game. But everything has to be online multiplayer these days. Sometimes I don't want to have to tolerate other players just to blow up some ships.
most of these I have never heard of before, except World of Warships, which I play addictively. there are several other sub games I used to play that didn't even make this list: Sub Command being the top one for me. and I was going to write you off completely if you didn't have WoWs in the #1 spot.
Wow, that nº1 spot… just wow… You think that a game that judges damage by RNG is the best Naval Warfare game out there? Really!?
*Ladies and Gentleman, let me highlight the fact that when they show footage of their “picked” games, there are indications to other peoples YT channels, meaning they dint even bother to play any of these themselves (or if they did, it was only the top 3 or something…)*
Where is “Atlantic Fleet” from Killer Fish Games? *(“Pacific Fleet” is a bit of a stretch, I know but it deserved an honorable mention at least!) (I won’t say “Cold Waters”, because this video is old, I’m not unreasonable)*
Where is Pacific Theater of Operations 2? *(the 1993 PC/SNES classic)* “Who?” you might ask, Oh you know, the game that made you manage an entire nations navy, from individual ship/submarine building, to submarine orders and movement, to fleet composition and movement, to strategy deliberation, objective establishment, weather checking, diplomacy & negotiation, land battles influenced by your decisions as well air battles influenced by your decisions, and so much more!
The 1º “Pick”, is a game where leaving your fleet-mates and “yoloing” into the cap point/into the enemy fleet is the “cool” thing to do. People actively ignore one another. Rarely do you see them take actions to assist one another…
Why is a game where strategic thinking seen as a “Nerd/Elitist” notion, in 1º place? Oh I know! Because its popular and its “hip” and “cool” and all that nice stuff, but let me tell you what World a Warships really is: *Vast as an ocean, but deep as a puddle* That’s all there is to it, it’s cool, it as a lot of ships, a lot of variety, but it does nothing with that variety!
You guys put “Silent Hunter 4” but not “Silent Hunter 3” as well!? Does nobody know GREY WOLVES Mod for SH3? Or the other mods that make these games even more badass!?
Whoever thought that “WoW’s” deserves 1º Place on this list, clearly does not know a thing about Naval Warfare games (I would have accepted Total War Empire(s) to be nº1, because even if the main focus is not Naval Warfare, in that game, Naval Warfare is a very deliberate affair, which can make or break your nation/faction…)
Battle stations pacific with its mods is extreamly good.you can patch it to v1.2 and use version 4 mod cant remember its name.it has the montana class the iowa class battle ships the mustang planes and the 3 types of yomato with the super 20 inch yamota guns with a few nice addons and the kikka and p80 shooting star jets and the bismark german battle ship and a few to mention
