|VSTEP's Ship Simulator Extremes expands upon previous entries in the Dutch developer's seafaring sim series, with new real-world missions, a greater variety of watercraft to control, and a cooperative online multiplayer mode. Virtual skippers can take the wheels of huge tankers, tough little tugboats, fast and agile interceptors, and even experimental hovercraft, among other commercial ships and private boats. Similar to earlier editions of Ship Simulator, the software is built around a sophisticated physics model, which produces realistic weather and water conditions, for authentic performance and handling of each vessel. Ship Simulator Extremes' missions include adventuresome outings set around the globe. Players can guide an ocean liner through a powerful storm at sea, pilot a Coast Guard vessel to evacuate a tropical island endangered by an active volcano, and search out illegal whaling operations in the Antarctic, among dozens of other pre-designed scenarios. The game is licensed by Greenpeace to feature the international environmental organization's real-life ships and activities. Internet-connected players can set sail together in cooperative missions and online events.|

Firstly this game suffers from major installation issues, I had to modify installed game files just to get it to run.
Then the game play just does not impress, overall quality is not what it was promised to be, the details are just not there for a 2010 game, especially considering it is a simulator. Games like Grand theft Auto, which have absolutely nothing to do with ship simulation, in a detailed comparison with water quality and overall ship details, GTA 4 blasts it out of the water literally!
I am sorry to say but I feel it was a waste of money, rather purchase the older 2008 version, the graphics are the same and its alot cheaper.
Very good game to learn about boating. Enjoyable multiplayer mode. Recommend upgrading graphics card if you have anything under a Nvidia 9200.
The ship Simulator works great and is a fun game to play. I will have many of hours playing by myself or with my friends.
Software is exactly as described. It is not an arcade type game. Very good graphics if your hardeware can support it.
