Harpoon 3

Review by James Allen: Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare is a good game for those players who won’t be scared off by the outdated graphics and initial learning curve. If you want flashy graphics, go play some mindless console game (which is every console game…HA!). If you want tactical depth and a range of scenarios, play Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare.
