With over 80 classes of ship and hundreds of ports there are a multitude of playing options. Will you build your fleet around the terrifying firepower of the battleships, sneak around with a submarine wolf pack or look to dominate the skies with carriers?
A combination of sandbox elements and the deadly combat of RTS naval warfare ensures a vast number of possibilities. Slow the action down or speed it up with the time slider, allowing you to command multiple ships quickly and effectively during huge battles.

Think of the gameplay as like a Mount and Blade game but set in WWII and with ships instead of soldiers. There's two sides to the gameplay, in campaign you manage your fleet, you build ships, attack ports, raid convoys, and such on the campaign map all in real time. Once two fleets clash you then pick out the ships you want to fight with and ones you want to keep in reserve and duke it out as an RTS. Highly recommend the game.
Victory at Sea is a game in which you are controlling a fleet of ships, to destroy the enemys and win the battle. The game is very intuitive, and makes you feel like you are a real commander, who can fight enemys in the World War 2. The game itself is very simple, so the graphics are not so good in my opinion and neither are the sounds in the game. Overall it is a fun kind of game to play when you do not have anything more to do or to play. I would recommend this to younger people, especially kids, since it is very simple, and for people with a lot of time and patience.
Victory at Sea is an interesting little naval RTS that stands out in it's woefully underrepresented genre. That being said, I can't help but think that it only scratches the surface, and would better serve it's fanbase by being less mobile action shoot em' up, and more simulation. The game is decent enough looking and sounding, and easy to pick up. The reasonable fidelity to real world units and battles serve it well. The game allows you to play on different sides, play single battles or campaigns, and generally has the expected features. Even so, the game is really not a simulation type of game, and just doesn't fill the hole in a genre that hasn't seen a decent surface warfare sim in over a decade. A fun distraction game, Victory at Sea just doesn't go far enough.
