Ship Simulator

Ship Simulator 2008

Take to the real high seas


  • Very realistic 3D graphics
  • Lots of locations and ships to choose from


  • Highly complex for beginners
  • Can be boring with no gameplay involved

Very good

Ship Simulator is a realistic simulation game that puts players at the helm of some of the most varied and detailed ships on the open seas. Note that this is not a game. It's purely for those that have always dreamt of taking control of a ship.

As captain, you have to perform a variety of tasks within the 3D world. You can take control of a wide range of ships - from massive cargo ships and ferries to speedboats, yachts, water taxis and even the Titanic. The locations are equally varied - from Southampton (including the Solent), to Marseille and San Francisco.

This all sounds fun if you're a shipping enthusiast but if you know nothing about mapping, you'll find yourself stranded in the dock - especially with the bigger ships. You can have a bit more reckless fun with water taxis and yachts. It takes ages just to learn how to read the dials (never mind start the engines) on the bigger ships so you'll have to set aside a considerable number of hours to get the most out of this.

Have you ever dreamt of steering a ship over the high seas?

Then Ship Simulator will delight you on all counts with a range of ships to choose from in some of the world's most prestigious ports.
