Reception[edit]

The review aggregator website Gamerankings gives the game a score of 46% out of 100%, basing its ranking on three other articles found about the game.[1]

Game Chronicles Magazine released a review of the game, calling the gameplay missions "mostly forgettable", adding, "you can only play as the Germans, and the game does not offer multiplayer. The developers get credit for a robust mission editor that allows you to choose the location, weather conditions, and size of convoy you want to fight. However, I can still only recommend this game to the most hardcore naval sim fans who value authenticity over gameplay."[2]

The Washington Post review similarly was critical of the game, stating, "If you are a hard-core submarine simulation fan, you might give Shells of Fury a fighting chance, but other gamers will probably want to look elsewhere."[3]
