    Emergency 2012 can be frustrating and demanding, but is still a very entertaining game. As soon as the campaign ends however the fun ends too.

    The as of yet best game of the series. Varied missions with cool settings and fairish graphics make Emergency 2012 a fun game. The downside is horrible interface and handling.

    A real time strategy game without armies or war is a neat idea, and the premise of fighting fires, natural disasters and other emergencies is downright clever. However, the game is hampered by clumsy and overly elaborate controls, meaning you end spending just as much time working out how to use your units as you do actually rescuing people.

    If they made it in 2011 graphics and gave players more freedom in the missions Emergency 2011 could be a truly enjoyable game. [Issue#200]

    The cumbersome gameplay and completely unrealistic settings and character movement provide quite the opposite of an immersive experience, and within an hour or two, you'll be exiting to Windows and filling your time with more entertaining games.

    Not new but still an interesting concept that is being perfectly killed by its design, even after several installments of the game – startling technical flaws, confusion over combined missions, barely no artificial intelligence and on top of that problematic pathfinding. The game just totally wasted its good potential.

    Wer die Vorgänger mochte wird auch diesen teil lieben. Allerdings find ich die Neuerung das man selber keine Fahrzeuge mehr fordern kann sondern am anfang seine eine bestimmte Anzahl hat sehr Gewöhnungsbedürftig. Desweiteren ist man am Anfang einer Mision ziemlich überfordert da man eig an 2 stellen gleichzeitig sein muss. Der Free2play teil ist genial und fordert den Spieler! Expand

    Some of the missions are fun but other missions are so difficult that it is almost impossible to complete the mission and that makes it very frustrating. The controls hinder gameplay and the pathfinder doesn't always work the way it should. There is no editor which is another negative thing about this game. Expand
