The Hunted: Twilight of the U-Boats, 1943-45
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT1907
The Hunted is a solitaire tactical level game, placing you in command of a German U-Boat during WWII. This is a continuation of the multi-game The Hunters series, picking up the action where The Hunters left off. You command one of many U-Boat models available starting in 1943 and look to successfully complete U-Boat operations until the end of the war. Not only is this a standalone game, but fans of The Hunters will enjoy having the capability to easily combine both games to span all of WWII and experience the career of a U-Boat commander from 1939 until 1945.
While your mission is to destroy as much Allied shipping and as many Capital ships as possible, players will find it extremely challenging to "go the distance" and survive the entire war. The second half of the war has not been sugar-coated; the brutal aspects facing U-boat commanders in the final phases of the war make surviving your attack difficult at best. True to history, your challenge is to accomplish what only a few could achieve — to make it to the conclusion, as happened historically.
Conducting patrols are the heart of the system as you will be resolving encounters against individual ships, convoys, enemy submarines, and aircraft. You will be faced with situations that suddenly appear and make important decisions.
