Description from the packaging.

The target thinks. The target feels. The target wants you dead.
This is the simulation that resets the standards in color, realism and 3D graphics; that puts you in command of a top secret billion dollar Los Angeles class U.S. attack sub; that pits you and your crew against deadly fleets of submerged, surface and airborne targets around the globe, that unfolds the dangers of espionage, evasion, and destruction.

This is the simulation that forces a showdown with enemies so cunning, so resourceful, and so incredibly human, that in the heat of battle you will ask yourself a most disturbing but ultimately thrilling question:

"Is this really happening?"

This is 688 Attack Sub. Welcome aboard, Captain.

Delegate to your crew or master all the responsibilities yourself. Control sophisticated weapons systems like harpoon encapsulated missiles, wire guided torpedoes and lots more.

Choose command of the quite US 688 or the faster Soviet Alfa sub and experience the real-life tradeoffs.

Cutting edge technology like 3D sonar contour mapping helps you hunt and evade enemies.

Enemy vessels are smart and unpredictable whether you play by yourself or against another player via modem.
