If you crave strategy and realism, Dangerous Waters is a simulation that’ll have you playing for years to come.90Worth Playing
The new non-sub platforms add a tremendous amount of interest and works wonders for the multiplayer mode. I hope to see add-ons with even more surface units. [Mar. 05]90Pelit (Finland)
This title is detailed enough to be used as a training tool for Navy cadets but is still accessible to the persistent player.89Game Chronicles
Deep gameplay overlaid with challenge in a seemingly accurate playground of modern naval combat.88GameZone
A near-ultimate meat-and-potatoes meal for naval simmers. [Apr 2005, p.68]85PC Gamer
A highly-detailed, multi-platform naval simulator, perfect for fans of the genre. However, Dangerous Waters is also quite unfriendly toward newbies, so enter at your own risk.84Gaming Nexus
Easily the most engrossing and authentic sub sim out there. [July 2006, p.92]84PC Format
Leave it to Sonalysts to create a modern-day naval survey simulation that has the breadth and depth of the oceans where the combat it simulates takes place.83GameSpot
Only certain people will appreciate it, but they’ll love the hell out of it.80GameSpy

And even though the game is rich with tension (certainly enough to offset the mediocre graphics), unless you’re at her majesty’s pleasure, you probably won’t have the time.73PC Zone UK
Gives you a lot of things to do, but it’s unlikely to light the old sim fire the way you might remember it. [July 2005, p.64]70Computer Games Magazine
A hardcore sim for the truly hardcore sim fan.70Gamers’ Temple
