Exactly as the title suggests; what a rip off this game is.  I downloaded it 2 days ago and already I have found more bugs in it than in an established ant farm!

Here are a few I have found;

1. On Pilot Needed (Solent) misson; I reach the first waypoint, get transferred to the next environment, and the pilot boat I am steering starts spinning round making it impossible to control.

2. The P&O ferry mission from San Fransisco to Phi Phi Islands:  Reach the first waypoint beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, transferred to the Phi Phi environment, and the ferry immediately sinks.

3. Rotterdam-Hull Mission: I was sailing up the port when a supertanker passing me just suddenly stood on its nose and sank.

4. Same mission: Twice in a row when I statted the mission the ferry immediately sank.  I had to close down the game altogether and restart it again for it to be fixed.

5. Same mission as above (again) :  I came to the end of the environment and had a window pop up asking me to choose another destination.  I hovered my mouse over the white circles indicating other environments, and sure enough a little description pops up in the window.  However, when I move the mouse away to click on OK, the description of the environment disappears from the window and I am unable to click on go.  I was unable to click on any environment, and had to abandon the game.


I notice on the webpage it gives a list of upcoming functions in the expected update patch, functions such as saving halfway through a mission.  Surely this should have been included in the first release game? 

It strikes me that this game was release before it was completed, and certainly appears that nobody tested it before releasing it.  This game is a joke!  If anybody is considering getting it then STOP!  Spend your money on something else - anything else, just not this poor excuse for an unfinished game!!  >:(

Absolutely certain, and did check first before dissing the product.  I am able to play other, more resource hungry games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator X, X3: The Reunion, and Oblivion, with no problems.  My pc specs are; Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz E6600; 4GB RAM, 256 MB nVidia GeForce 7900GS graphics card, Vista Home Premium 64-bit - so plenty of clout there.

I have to say that I purchased the game as I thought it was by Microsoft:  The font/style that VStep have used in the game's title is identical to the way that MS use for their Flight Simulator games, so I thought it was by the same people  :-[

guys, we are all doing if this game is the biggest **** in the world!

there are also a lot of good points at ship simulator, but we don't see them because we are all focused on the buggs,

and ok, there are a lot of bugs so maybe they need a BETA tester, that would be a nice idea for them, to putt a beta tester in it.

but the only thing that reallymakes scence to me is that ships can not (yet) sink, even it was in the features list.

my advice for the players:
1.take also a good look at the good points of Ship simulator
2.don't listen to others, the one likes it and the other not, so don't think that a game is what others say.

my advice to the game creators:
use BETA testers before selling the product  ;)

No need for that language though. Stuart

I think those who dont like the simulator because of the bugs should wait for the patch and see if the bugs still are there ;)
