  • Summary: Exclusively for Wii, Emergency Mayhem mixes fast and frantic driving action with hilarious arcade mini games. Take charge of the three Emergency Services, you’ll have to battle the traffic and shoot down shortcuts as you race from crazy catastrophe to daft disaster. At each incident, you'll use the Wii Remote in wacky ways to solve unique crises, from disarming bombs to herding escaped penguins! Then it's on to the next emergency - no time to waste!

  1. Emergency Mayhem throws some wacky tasks our way as we race to reduce mayhem but really reducing panic has never felt so repetitive.

    However if you are a fan of classic arcade driving games like Sega's aforementioned cabbie title then you may want to check Mayhem out. It can definitely entertain even if only for minutes at a time.

    Emergency Mayhem is a me-too Crazy Taxi clone with some added Wii waggle minis. If you can live with that -- and the game's lackluster graphical presentation -- you will find a fast-paced, arcde-style driving game here.
  4. It may be one of the best of its breed, but that's like saying smallpox is the best communicable disease. [Issue#22, p.74]
  5. The game is extremely easy to finish in a single afternoon. Not that you should play it, mind you. There are far better choices out there than Emergency Mayhem.
  6. There’s just nothing here of any real value. Boring, unresponsive, tedious, repetitive mini-games loosely tied together with boring, unresponsive, tedious, repetitive driving sequences.
