Interesting to anyone?

I have had my eye on this since before it went early access, it reminds me of an old board game called Wooden Ships and Iron Men (I am definitely dating myself with that).

Has some bad reviews though, not sure about those.

I remember "Wooden Ships and Iron Men" but never played it. I was into naval sims for a while but then kinda lost interest in the genre since nothing came out that grabbed me like Silent Hunter 4 or Dangerous Waters did. Interestingly, some of the most immersive naval combat I've experienced is in Total War: Napoleon. It was very well implemented.

I forgot to add that my fundamental problem with "Naval Action" is that it is largely focused on MP. I just want a solid SP experience with realistic physics modelling and an in-depth campaign mode.

For my part, I love MP. Some of the bad reviews say it is unbalanced in favor of clans, which i do not like at all. I am not sure if you do online coop if you get your own instance, that is pretty close to SP. While the game is attractive to me, I will probably not get it due to lack of available time and some of the controversy, even though it is on sale.

Hammer, I know this is off-topic, but I also posted that Voice Comms is on sale on Steam too, in case you're interested.

The Ultimate Admiral series (two games) might be a better bet. They are on Steam.
