The years of the Amiga, my top game together with pinball dreams and pinball fantasies.
Only flaw was that targets were always hostile, so that it became a little bit too shoot ′em up.
To prevent this, try to go through the war without reloading the tubes in combat. Figure out what you need in your tubes and go with it.
You will have to figure out how to get those amphibious landing ships without be able to sunk all the escorts. Same with the Moskwa or Kirov. And then escape the escorts. Or only be able to damage the Kremlin carrier, before escaping.
With this handicap I had campaigns which lasted up to 4 years instead of the few month of warfare, which you normally play till victory or defeat.
I would so much whish they would make an improved version with friendly and neutral contacts, and be able to steer also British and Soviet subs.
Hello, Thanks so much for your site. I enjoyed playing Red Storm Rising some 20 years ago and would like to play again. Obviously, I could download the game, but can you tell me how actually play? I am running Windows 10. Will it my in my browser, do I need a special app or file, or do I need am old computer? I would like to play PC rather than atari or commodore.? THanks BigTom2323 I am at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is my favorite computer game of all time. I played it first on the C64 and later on the PC. I would get completely immersed in the game and frequently found myself quitting at 3-4:00 AM. I′m going to try to download and run this on one of my older (pre-windows 10) computers. I really wish Microprose would release a new windows version with better graphics.
I can′t believe that I found this! I got a PC when I graduated High School in Dec 1988 (486 DX2-66 suckerz!) and bought this game the day it came out. Then I lost a year of my life! I only made it all the way through once (played in real-time of course) and then I put it away for ever... *until now*
My brother and I both played this game, and (not as a result) later joined the U.S. Navy. The close accuracy of this game to late-20th-century naval combat is highly instructive and challenging, yet engaging and fun. Anyone who likes simulators or strategic+tactical combat should check this game out.
I played this game when I was 4 & 5. It was AWESOME!
