Summary: The original State of Emergency (Xbox/PS2) was nothing more than a mindlessly bloody game, but it was a damn fun game to play. This Playstation 2-exclusive sequel sadly ditches the original addicting formula in favor of a more cinematic experience, that sadly falls flat. This game had a troubled development history. It was stuck in development hell for years.
Summary: State Of Emergency 2 was a very well thought out game, It caught my attention from the gate. I took a chance on this one because part one wasn't so much fun to play. Part 1 was like a 3 star game. With part 2 there's alot more options, and I love the arcade portion. I found myself up til 4 in the morning playing it. Can't wait til part 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: This is the first part of a two part review. First part, rating the demo, second part, rating the game. Okay, when I heard about the game, I thought it might be kinda cool, but when I played the demo, I kept dying and dying. No fun, but it is just a demo, right? PLay the demo first before anything. [part two coming soon.
Conclusion: this is a terrible game i played it for 2 hours and had to send it back because: *it was far to steap of a learning curb *the story line is boring *the game is dull and lifeless try it for urself u might disagree but there are so many better games out there like gta and mercenaries that follow this sort of game line that there really is no need for this powerless sequal!!!
Summary: In State of Emergeny 1, you basically run around a large environment in the middle of a riot. You beat people up. You grab weapons of all sorts including hatchets, machineguns, trash cans. You smash stuff, beat up bad guys, and try not to get killed. It was not an especially complex game, but it was fun. And different. SoE2, on the other hand, tries to be something else. It has more thinking, more maneuvering, more dying.
Summary: this game is merely based on the 'intelectual property' of the first State of Emergency created by Rockstar Games... ie it's based on some of the characters of that game and nothing more... the targeting of the weapons and the game saves are a real disappointment... I'm glad I rented this game instead of buying it... I predict it will sell for 9.99 in a month or two.
Summary: This game is simply not fun. there is not enough weapons to choose from. no auto-aiming. stupid music and awful voice overs. only 3 areas to choose from in multiplayer. missions are far too difficult. bottom line: if you were a fan of the first state of emergency, rent this. i urge you to not buy it!
