Naval Combat

Naval – Best Commercial Release

Reader’s Choice Poll:
Winner: Silent Hunter III

Staff / Moderator’s Choice Poll:
Winner: Silent Hunter III

Comments: The Naval Combat genre isn’t a large one, but despite its StarForce woes Silent Hunter III was a solid title that has with its high quality graphics, innovative features and game play have set a very high standard for naval simulations.

S.C.S.-Dangerous Waters

Naval – Best Freeware Release – S.C.S. – Dangerous Waters

Reader’s Choice Poll:
Winner: LuftWolf and Amizaur’s Weapons and Sensors Realism mod

Staff / Moderator’s Choice Poll:
Winner: Crazy Ivan’s Russian Voices

Comments: With such a high level of realism out of the box, game enhancement mods are predominant over the realism mods. However as with all naval sims realism is the most sought after item. It is especially pleasing to see the high quality of mods being produced by the community.

Real U-Boat Mod

Naval – Best Freeware Release – Silent Hunter III

Reader’s Choice Poll:
Winner: Real U-Boat Mod

Staff / Moderator’s Choice Poll:
Winner: Real U-Boat Mod

Comments: RUB has gone from strength to strength on the back of the community’s desire for greater realism. Hopefully Ubisoft will take this on board for Silent Hunter IV.


GT Legends

Motorsports

Motorsports – Best Commercial Release

Reader’s Choice Poll:
Winner: GT Legends
Runner Up: GT Racing (GTR)

Staff / Moderator’s Choice Poll:
Winner: GT Racing (GTR)
Runner Up: rFactor

Comments: SimBin really came through for the motorsports crowd this year, with two great titles. Yes there were support problems for GTR, and there was that StarForce thing (again), but overall these are two great titles, lovingly crafted by a team that loves racing sims as much as we do. Of all the games listed as winners or runners up, it’s noteworthy to see that ISI’s game engines power every one of them — not that there’s a lot of options in this year’s motorsports sim marketplace.

GPL 1969 F1 Mod

 

Motorsports – Best Freeware Release

Reader’s Choice Poll:
Winner: 1969 F1 Mod (GPL)
Runner Up: No other mod came close to being called a “Runner Up”

Staff / Moderator’s Choice Poll:
Winner: 1969 F1 Mod (GPL)
Runner Up: Porsche Carrera Cup (rFactor)

Comments: GPL is still the benchmark by which all other racing sims are measured. And the mods made for it, so far, have re-affirmed the title’s dominance and longevity in the racing sim world.
