  • Summary: Enter the soot-stained boots of an everyday hero as a newly graduated Fire Academy cadet getting their start in a big city firehouse.

  1. There are legions of kids out there that want to be firefighters and this game offers a little look into that career.
  2. This game is one of those, you will either really like it, or your really gonna hate it.
  3. Although it's unavoidable that some players won't be able to get past the graphics, those that do will be treated to an entertaining and worthwhile experience for a system that currently boasts the highest shovelware-to-keeper ratio I think I've ever seen.
  4. Real Heroes: Firefighter shows respect to the real life men and woman who risk their lives to help prevent the unstoppable force of unforgiving fire. The gameplay is surpassingly intense and packaged into a fun campaign as a rookie firefighter learning the ropes.
  5. I commend the developers for trying something new with the first-person viewpoint and for giving Wii owners a decent firefighting game. Unfortunately, it's not an exceptional one, and while this is a well-made game in a lot of ways, it is hurt by its very sterile look, poor graphics, and control issues.
  6. Real Heroes: Fighterfighter is unquestionably the finest fire-fighting game I've ever played, but that isn't saying much given how this isn't exactly a budding genre.
  7. Even for a budget title, Real Heroes: Firefighter is unpolished and sloppy. The experience picks up toward the end, but it's too little too late when you consider the monotonous trudge that leads you there.

    Who said real life was dull? this is a WAY more engaging game than metroid prime corruption that I just finished forcing myself to play for a couple of weeks after spending way too much money on it. firefighters is far more fun and interesting and varied. Expand

    Who would have thought it? sounds like shovelware, looks honestly kind of sub par (at least the water fx imho are sub par), but the gameplay, the dialog, the timing, the reality of it all, the story line and the actual events in the game are all really fun and immersive! This is well worth $30 or more. better than many $50 games on the wii. amazing graphics aren't everything, although these don't suck at all, they're pretty well between n64 and early gamecube release quality. but it doesn't matter, GREAT game! tons of fun.

    This is a taste of how the controls of the Nintendo Wii can really make a game more immersive. Give the guys at

    As always, gametrailers doesn't get it. as a budget title they dislike it? holy crap, have they played wii budget titles before? this is better than many games on the wii that are fully priced! yes their comments, while harsh, are correct, they're missing the point. this is a fun game and blows away the minigame crap all over the wii. VASTLY superior really. Expand
