Like most other releases from underrated developer Simulations Canada (SimCan), Red Sky at Morning lives up to their normal complex gameplay and high realism. The game is a simulation of a hypothetical world-wide naval war, including a potential nuclear release. You can, naturally, play as either the US or the USSR, each with an accurate array of ships and nuclear weapons at your disposal. One of the first SimCan games with graphics, it was awkward in execution (the graphics are presented in separate screens instead of with the other information... perhaps a result of them being added later after the whole game was already coded in ASCII), but is still impressive for the tremendous amount of background research.

Overall, the game is a worthwhile challenge for naval simulation fans who are interested in the Cold War, although it could have been made much more interesting with more diplomatic options a la Balance of Power. Two thumbs up!
