About The Game

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is a naval simulation that places gamers in charge of a mosquito fleet of the Allied Forces, Russia or Germany during the height of World War II. Torpedo and storm-boats, trawlers and patrol ships plough the seas. Their advantage is speed and maneuverability. Suddenly they appear in front of the enemy with devastating firepower and then vanish in the morning haze. They are hard to spot and difficult to catch. Mosquito fleets were widely used to escort and attack convoys, bring down aircraft, land troops in the rear of the enemy and perform special diversionary operations. PT Boats: Knights of the Sea allows players to take command of a boat and control each member of the crew. Shoot down aircraft using machine guns and anti-aircraft guns, torpedo hostile destroyers and supply ships, "entertain" uninvited guests with cannon fire or plan strategic group attacks.

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea Review

By Vanessa Martineau

My dad was on a PT Boat during the Vietnam War. Sure, PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is based on naval combat and patrols in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II, but I couldn't help to look forward to this game; maybe it would give me a taste of what my dad went through and what he may have done.

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea is developed by Akella, an Eastern European development house, and published by Battlefront. You can only buy the game through Battlefront's web site either as a digital download, a hard copy shipped to you, or both. Battlefront uses their eLicence system for digital rights control. That gives you a key to enter and unlock the game. You can have the game installed and licensed on two machines at a time. I believe this system works well. You can un-install and re-install a license as much as you want; the only downside is that to license you must have an internet connection. Once licensed you can play without an internet connection.

The box copy comes with a fully printed game manual (24 pages) as well as the unique “Ship Guide” book (56 pages).

PT Boats: Knights of the Sea support DirectX 9c and DirectX 10. 10 of course has better graphical effects, but I have noticed a slight drop in frame rates using DirectX 10 over DirectX 9c. PT Boats: Knights of the Sea works with Windows XP SP2, Vista, and 7. The title requires slightly more than 2 GB of hard drive space, and an average PC.
