  1. It's way too short, but the game does go over the top in both the action and the premise, and it is fun.

    A tried and true beat-'em-up, and it doesn't offer the stunning replay value or depth of some other Rockstar titles. It's very different...[yet] the addiction level in this game is extremely high.
  3. This new "bad boy" of the video game industry is extremely fun to play — for those old enough and mature enough to purchase it — as a campy stress releaser at the end of a bad day.
  4. Despite its limited depth, State Of Emergency is a lengthy beat-em up that truly shines in short bursts.
  5. After the blood-soaked honeymoon is over, you'll see the game in the harsh morning light and wonder if it was worth it.
  6. If you’re looking for depth, look elsewhere, but those who miss the style of games made popular on the Dreamcast should welcome this with closed fists.
  7. 20
    It’s like on your 16th birthday where you’re expecting a set of keys that will unlock a brand new car but instead you get an all-season bus pass. Except multiply that disappointment by about fifty times and you have what it feels like to play State of Emergency.

    my review for the PS2 game state of emergency

    SINGLE PLAYER (STORY)- 4/10. the story is strung together very poorly. in fact, there isn't
    much of a story at all. it is just about blowing things up.
    GRAPHICS- 9/10. great for the time, especially with the loads of NPC's and explosions.
    SOUND- 8/10. nothing special here. explosions and shooting.
    GAMEPLAY- 8/10. a mindless shooting fest that is a great stress reliever or a time killer. no control problems.
    FUN FACTOR- 8/10. very enjoyable yet simple game.
    OVERALL- 8/10.
