I can remember playing this game many years ago on the SEGA Megadrive (Genesis machine for you yanks). I can’t say i’m really a big fan of sub games or simulations in general but I found 688 attack sub to be a very playable and enjoyable game.
The plot is simple fare, you are the captain of either an American or Soviet sub and must play through a series of increasingly difficult missions. Graphics-wise the game was quite good for it’s time, some of the fractal effects especialy were impressive. Those who like to tplay things at a slow, tactical pace will especialy like the game, and with many ways to complete each mission it’s likely that you will through the game again when you finish it.
Overall an enjoyable game, although maybe not one that will appeal to everyone.
