Red Storm Rising was the name of one of Tom Clancy's most famous best sellers, taken from the codename of Russia's military plan for an armoured assault on Western Europe.
The novel was set in a number of scenarios with a number of main characters, but this game focuses on the part of the book about underwater warfare. We'll have many options when setting up a game. First we choose a year, and depending on that the existing technology will vary, both for us and for the enemy.
Specially in the later scenarios there are many weapons we can arm our boat with: The weapons, along with all the sensors, water conditions, etcetera, make for quite a lot of stuff we must know before we can master the game. This isn't one of those World War II sub simulators, in a sense it's a techno-thriller just like the novel it's based on. In this respect I must say that the game's a good adaptation of it: We can play a separate encounter at a time, which is good for getting the hang of the game, but eventually we're supposed to play the full campaign.
In this mode we're given one mission after another and we'll be responsible to move our boat across a strategic map of the Norwegian Sea while we're fed intel about the enemy forces, to try and hunt our objective down. There's a bar at the bottom that will fill up in blue the closer NATO is to win the war, or in red the closer it is to lose it, and every once in a while we'll get news about war events, all depending on our actions in the all-crucial Norwegian Sea scenario.
Whether we play a separate encounter or we have one in the campaign mode, the game is all about the tactic mode. Here we'll see, along with all the other controls we need, a top-down display of our boat and any contacts we've made with varying degrees of certainty. What we must do is no easy task: I really liked this book and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good long read. This is an old favorite, I have read it cover to cover many times. The feel of the story is very much how I remember life in when the Cold War was in full force and the events of this book were a real possibility and fear.
Those of us in our prime draft age at the time knew we could be living this scenario at any moment and revisiting this time period evokes a strange feeling of nostalgia. When this novel was written the world was a much simpler place, we knew who the enemy was and we could understand what their goals were. In terms of the military events portrayed the novel is accurate in most things. The only amusingly wrong thing was the expectation of what a small 'stealth' aircraft would look like and be capable of.
At the time the F was the deepest darkest secret technology of the American military and the speculative F stealth fighter bomber imagined by the author is a not unreasonable attempt to describe a weapon system no civilian had ever seen and estimate its capabilities. All in all Mr. Clancy did a masterful job of creating a machine that while looking nothing like the F is able to preform the same bombing missions that real world aircraft can accomplish.
Clancy also paints the war in a realistic fashion, neither side has a runaway victory overwhelming the other with vastly superior technology, commitment, or tactics. Both sides start out over confident of what they can accomplish and both sides make mistakes which the other tries to take advantage of.
In some cases they succeed and in others they fail, but the events have a very real world feel to them much like reading a novel set in either World War where the same pattern progressed. This book was fantastic.
After years of putting off Red Storm Rising I finally got around to it and regret not doing it years earlier. Precision in his military writing that is often lacking in many authors, yet does not try to bog you down in the details. This is perhaps the best Clancy novel and definitely has that rare quality of both quality and quantity. Despite the rather hefty tome that it is, I found myself wishing it hadn't ended after finishing it.
I found this book difficult to become excited about.
The initial underlying account of a terrorist attack on a giant Russian oil refinery that resulted in long-term energy short falls seemed to present a weak, illogical basis for the rest of the plot. The politboro decides that it can't wait the months that are necessary for the repair and restart of the refinery, so , hey, let's go to war.
Very simple, and somehow much more convenient than purchasing oil temporarily from countries that might refuse us or actually charge us in currency that we don't have much of well, we won't bother to ask; no, better to go to war; after all, we will win in record breaking time because we are so clever at deception. This beginning defies common sense and the historical record. No matter how corrupt, brutal and incompetent the politboro was at any given time during the Cold War, no matter how many times they may have actually been severely tempted to attack NATO, no such direct conflict occurred due to a reluctance to have themselves and their country engulfed in a nuclear nightmare from which there could be no recovery.
So instead, proxy wars, a much safer alternative, were fought between the two nuclear- armed super powers. Clancy's initial premise, then seems so divorced from historical reality that I found it difficult to take the rest of the plot seriously, although it was wrapped up impressively with mounds of technical information.
This book wasn't nearly as exciting as I had anticipated. See all reviews.
