Got this game and am giving it a try.

In my first duel I got a great solution on my Soviet adversarial and shot a torp at him. He also immediately responded and I started maneuvering. Accidentally hit the blow ballast button and went screaming to the surface where I went to all stop and silent running. My torp missed and I thought I was toast, but somehow it reacquired the Soviet and took him out. The crew were rewarded with margaritas and a bit of time to take in the sun. Funny as shit... wished I had recorded it.

In another duel I went up against a Sierra (I believe it was) and had him dead to rights. Shot a torp at him and then began evasive maneuvers. Think the dude fired 4 torps at me and we both ended at the bottom of the ocean. :cry:

Lots of hotkeys to get used to, so this one, which I find interesting, may be a long term project. If I can learn how to play it well, I might start videoing my games.

I downloaded the PDF manual for Cold Waters and printed off the key command page. Beats writing them down.
