  • Summary: Take command of the city's Emergency Services Division, and direct multiple units including police, K-9, fire and ambulance serivices. Under your leadership, your teams will perform feats of heroism by saving lives in traffic accidents, containing nuclear plant meltdowns, negotiating with hostage-takers and extinguishing raging forest blazes. You are in control of the best emergency crews and equipment available - success is riding on your shoulders. Will the unrelenting pressure tear you apart, or will you become a hero. [ARUSH] Collapse

  1. The intriguing aspect of the game kept drawing me back, and there are far worse ways to spend $20.
  2. You won’t be beating it over the course of a weekend and it does bring something new to the table for you or your pre teen younger gamers who are into emergency and rescue shows or events.
  3. While its missions are complex and often satisfying, Emergency 2 is frustrating at times because of its clumsy interface.
  4. It is not a strategy game, but a poorly designed puzzle game. The puzzles are poorly explained and the solutions obscure and not really logical. The only challenge in the game is avoiding frustration-induced madness. This is just not my idea of fun.
  5. Contains nothing noteworthy and just about every aspect of it reeks of a half-assed budget title -- which it is.
