Body temperature and health decrease when players are wet or in cold weather too long - they must find places to warm themselves and scrap together meals from whatever they can find. In the end, players must run, climb, jump, and crawl their way out of this devastated city, while constantly trying to piece together information from emergency broadcasts and other victims of the disaster.

  1. I don’t want to oversell this low-budget PS2 action/adventure. However, it does have a lot going for it: putting the player in a dangerous yet unusually real situation, meaningful story choices, and lots of replay value. You might be surprised how much you end up enjoying Raw Danger.

    Some scenarios really capture the perverse freedoms of navigating an abandoned city. [July 2007, p.106]

    Zettai 2 strains under the weight of its own ambition, but is a cracking achievement nonetheless... We'd far rather a game reached for the stars and didn't quite make it than was happy to drown in the seas of sameyness. [JPN Import; Aug 2006, p.70]
  4. Just as unique and potentially engrossing as its predecessor, Disaster Report. Unfortunately, we have to say "potentially" because several glaring flaws continually bog down the game, not the least of which are those hopelessly lackluster technicals (the graphics and sound are both major drawbacks).

    Raw Danger is a decent, if somewhat slow-paced, adventure, and its "real-world danger" aspect makes for some truly fearful moments. [May 2007, p.60]

    It's a compelling concept, but the slow loading times, chunky controls, lackluster graphics, and easy puzzles sap the adrenaline right out of the game. [May 2007, p.85]
  7. Poor camera angles frustrate the player as they desperately try to figure out ambiguous objectives which usually involve carrying things, crawling around, and drowning.

    This game has all the character dynamics and graphical polish of a PS1 title, and the opening stage has you playing a waiter fetching waterThis game has all the character dynamics and graphical polish of a PS1 title, and the opening stage has you playing a waiter fetching water for people. You will be tempted to change the disc after about 10 minutes of slogging through the setup... and if you do, you will be robbing yourself of a unique experience.

    The setting gets very interesting soon enough, and the game's mechanics (managing body temperature) really shine when the titular danger kicks in. The map searching gameplay can occasionally get tedious if you can't find an item or decipher a pathway, but the environment is never boring... it's very rough around the edges, but it moves and shakes with the best PS2 games.

    It's just a fun, one-of-a-kind game that looks like the graphics department walked out during production.
