Your task is not just to pick up the calls, but also to react appropriately to the situation sometimes giving first aid instructions is enough, at other times a police, fire department or paramedics' intervention is a necessity. Keep in mind, that the person on the other side of the line might turn out to be a dying daughter's father, an unpredictable terrorist, or just a prankster. Can you handle all of this? Expand

However, I had made the mistake of getting it for console. Primarily, it was the use of a controller that did this one in for me. If all you happen to have is a controller, please skip this game as it was made for PC. I only played less than 2 hours before I had to put it down, whereas the original PC port I had beat all scenarios nearly twice-over. You control everything using your trigger buttons, shoulder buttons, and even the touchpad. With every button press, either I had to hold it down or keep pressing until the action was finally made. Sometimes you can not fully click off a unit and have them go somewhere completely different by accident, leading to a failed attempt at saving someone's life. Every emergency that popped up, I felt I had to pause every single time to even get a team to make it to that area.

    Voice acting is alright, and can be comical at times. Whenever I get a call with some guy singing in the shower, it's hilarious. The models are almost the exact same, with the UI being tailored specifically for consoles. It's still kind of fun, but not nearly as much fun as one might expect from the original PC version. Trust me, if you have the money to spend, pick up the PC version. Don't waste your time with the console ports. I'm not sure about the Switch version though, since it does offer a tablet-like touch screen interface. So, it might be similar or better than the one for PC.

    If you have picked up the PC version and wish to pick this port up as well, then I suggest purchasing at least at half off. With 211 Operator in the works, I plan to get that for PC only.

    I made the mistake of spending $20 to buy this game on PS4 thinking it would be just like the PC version.

I already own the PC version and figured it would be cool to play with a controller on a bigger screen. Sadly, within only 10 minutes I realized the console version is a rushed, watered down version of the PC game. The controls are difficult and barely responsive, almost as if there is a 1 second delay meaning you are smashing buttons trying to get anything to work. When you are taking a 911 call you cannot do anything in the background. On the PC version I was able to send units to the caller while simultaneously taking to them and at the same time redirecting other units to other calls. You cannot do this on the console version, making it feel like you have to rush through the call just to start sending units. But one of the biggest things for me was the lack of ambient noise. In the PC version while nothing is going on you will hear radio chatter and ambient sirens in the background, it’s repetative but still adds to immersion. As well as when you sent units anywhere, they would audibly copy you saying they are going. None of this happens in the console version. The game is completely quiet unless you call a 911 call. Units also don’t notify you when they clear, so unless you are watching them you won’t notice they are available. This was a major game killer for me as a majority of the time you are sitting in silence. I don’t think it would have been too hard for the developers to add these ambient noises to the console version, but I guess so.

    I love the PC version, but the PS4 version seems like a watered down money grab. I definitely don’t recommend getting this version
