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.

    Disaster Report 2 recoge el testigo del primero e implementa nuevas ideas como tratar de mantener nuestra temperatura corporal a un nivelDisaster Report 2 recoge el testigo del primero e implementa nuevas ideas como tratar de mantener nuestra temperatura corporal a un nivel estable, evitando la humedad y que está descienda hasta caer en una hipotermia que nos haga perecer. Creo que es más acertado que el sistema de supervivencia basado en la hidratación del primero, lo que aporta un poco de realismo y credibilidad. En está ocasión se interconectara las tramas de diversos personajes a través de los capítulos que protagonizaran cada uno de ellos. Tendremos guiños como la ladrona de joyas del primero. Genuinamente hace cosas mejores que el primero, pero se queda a medio camino. Disfrute mucho con la experiencia original, pero este me ha dejado insatisfecho en comparación, a pesar de intentar recrear situaciones más tensas y más variadas, tiene sus puntos de apogeo en algunas escenas, una es censurada, ya que era muy gore, y solo se mantuvo en la edición japonesa. Aun así aportan drama e intentar que haya un vinculo más emocional entre el jugador y los personajes para que empaticemos y los apreciemos o aborrezcamos. Pues en la primera parte esta parte estaba muy descuidada, era casi anecdótica y aquí se nota que intentaron elaborar una trama con más trasfondo más pulido. Al menos esa es la intención, creo que la banda sonora aquí si gana puntos.

    En esta ocasión nuestras decisiones cobran más peso y desembocaran en diferentes finales. Incluso el protagonista de la primera parte tendrá su papel en este juego aunque sea más en un plano secundario. También tenemos un sistema de cocina improvisado que nos beneficiará proporcionándonos calorías y aumentar nuestra estamina.

    La curva de dificultad ahora es más exigente ya que el modo normal es algo más complicado. En la primera parte podíamos escoger el modo difícil desde el principio, aquí se desbloqueara tras la primera partida jugada.

    Prefiero el primero, pues genuinamente me gustaba más el ritmo, la tensión, era más experimental y se tomo ciertas licencias que lo hacían más fresco e innovador. Aquí se atrevieron a experimentar con algunos leves cambios pero realmente se sientes nimios e insignificantes. Buen juego pero no del todo recomendable.

    De todos los arcos argumentales me quedo con el de Amber Brazil. Si alguien quiere jugarlo sin censura ni ningún tipo de modificación es mejor la versión japonesa.
