  • Excerpt: SOS: The Final Escape is a survival game for the Playstation 2 created by Irem in 2002. You play the role of Keith Helm, a reporter who makes his way to the man-made Shriver Island in order to start his new job as a newspaper editor in Capital City. However, upon his arrival an enormous earthquake occurs, leaving him trapped in the city as aftershocks occur and buildings and structures collapse all around him.
  • Pros: Exciting, good story and gameplay
  • Cons: Little slow at times

SOS: The Final Escape - A great disaster game.

  • Excerpt: Age Rating: 11+ Also known as Disaster Report. Can be bought new or used for £7+ on ebay.co.uk. There is no multiplayer. I'm a big fan of disaster movies and books so I was thrilled to discover there was a game where you had to escape from a disaster happening at a city built on an island. It's quite a unique idea although a bit more could have been elaborated on with the storyline.
  • Pros: Great storyline, game idea, gameplay and original .
  • Cons: Voice acting, camera angles, game length .

  • Excerpt: June 21st is a very long day for Keith Helm. As he heads into Stiver Island for his first days work as a Journalist for the Town Crier Newspaper, a massive Earthquake hits, derailing the train he is travelling on and leaving him on a bridge that's crumbling at an alarming rate. Things are no better in the city; he can barely move for collapsing buildings and flying debris - escape becomes the number one priority.
  • Pros: Original ideas, cinematic story, some replay value
  • Cons: Slight control issues, no combat, short and easy

  • Excerpt: SOS: Final Escape, a.k.a. Disaster Report (USA), a.k.a. simply SOS (Japan) is one of those crazy Japanese games I read about in PS2 magazine, take ages to find, and then play it whilst shaking my head at the inventiveness and sheer surreal delight of it all… then I finish it that night, and sell it the next day.
  • Pros: gripping, tense, original gameplay
  • Cons: poor replayability, shonky graphics

  • Excerpt: SOS: Final Escape is a very original game. The basic story is that there is a new man-made island metropolis, and you are on your way there to start your first day at work. But, on the way there is an earthquake which you get caught in, and you must escape. The gameplay involves avoiding falling debris (and buildings), escaping from dangerous situations, and helping other survivors along the way.
  • Pros: Original idea, not like other games
  • Cons: A bit too short and easy

Sans intérêt

  • Excerpt: Jeu ayant très peu d'intérêt, graphismes moches et ternes, scenario simple bête et prévisible, dialogues plats et ridicules. On passe son temps à sauvegarder ou faire boire de l'eau au personnage qui meurt s'il se déshydrate toutes les 3 minutes, plusieurs fins possibles oui mais c'est tellement ennuyant qu'on n'a pas envie de recommencer: je ne conseille ce jeu qu'aux débutants de moins de 10 ans.

Tolles Spiel, wenn auch mit technischen Schwächen

  • Summary: "Disaster Report", in der PAL-Version "SOS-The Final Escape" habe ich dreimal durchgespielt. Es ist so aufgebaut, dass man mehrmals im Spiel Entscheidungen treffen muss, die teils starke Auswirkungen auf den Spielverlauf haben. Die Orte, die man besucht und die Menschen, denen man begegnet, sind also zum Teil nicht die Gleichen, wenn man ein zweites oder drittes Mal von vorne anfängt.

  • Excerpt: Bon jeu ps2 assez unique dans son genre étant donné qu'il nous met dans la peau d'un personnage assistant à la destruction de son pays à cause de tremblements de terre. Un survival donc en quelque sorte nous offrant plusieurs choix influents sur la suite de l'histoire. Le tout est prenant et se joue avec plaisir.
