Silent Service reviews

Computer and Video Games (1987): "Silent Service is extremely playable and fun, whilst giving an accurate account of submarine warfare, a must for every simulation addict."

Computer Gaming World (1991): "A tactical simulation of submarine warfare in the South Pacific during World War II. Detailed rules, historical accuracy and layers of complexity made this simulation a necessity in every gamer's library when it first appeared. But it has been rendered obsolete by time and superseded by Silent Service II."
