    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.

    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, 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!

    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.

  1. It’s a surprisingly immersive and competently controlling first-person soaker from a completely unexpected source — a budget title with a generic name.

    The Epicenter Studios' game is a nice supplemental FPS if you're looking for a break from the usual and expected, and though the game has a few issues here and there that didn't get cleaned up before publish, it's a solid and impressive effort that's released at a hard to beat price.
  3. Don your big yellow hat and venture into burning buildings in this engaging firefighting simulation.
