The interesting premise of Emergency 3 is negated by often clumsy controls, frustrating mission design, and terrible artificial intelligence.
2 June 2006
Summary: Emergency 3, the latest real-time strategy game from publisher Strategy First, attempts to capture the urgency of life-and-death situations that arise from sudden and unexpected events like train wrecks, automobile accidents, structure fires, explosions, and even failed bungee jumps.
Pros: Interesting premise with plenty of creative mission scenarios, Decent graphics and performance with relatively modest system requirements
Cons: Clumsy, frustrating interface, The trial-and-error nature of the missions will try your patience, Spotty artificial intelligence, Uninformative manual and a limited tutorial will leave beginners guessing as to how to actually play the game
