Summary: I was very dissapointed with this game. I thought it would be a free-for-all multiplayer game, but only one player!? What are you thinking Rockstar!? This game would kick ass if only you had the technology from Red Faction supporting the "destroy anything" bull crap Otherwise, the missions are very hard, and the first level sucks. Police squads are cheap-they come in huge swarms. You may enjoy it, but dont expect anything GTA3-ish. Rent it first...
Summary: Alright, let's take this from the top. Start with a company like Rockstar Games, the innovative geniuses behind the famed "Grand Theft Auto" series. Add in a new, exciting concept in games, a riot simulator. Then surround the whole thing in a glut of media hype and controversy. You can't possibly go wrong, right? WRONG!
State Of Emergency (PS2): S.O.S.....save me from this mediocrity!
18 February 2011
Summary: State Of Emergency is a 2002 Rockstar game that courted some controversy, as many Rockstar games seem to do, upon its release. Set in a near future dystopian society where The State controls every moment of existance, the idea of the game is to cause widespread destruction and chaos whilst striking back at "The Man!" With each succesive level, you choose to play as one of a set of characters and are given certain challenges you need to complete.
Summary: Following the massive success of Grand Theft Auto 3, it was hoped that State of Emergency might follow suit and be a stunningly crafted game with a great story and addictive gameplay. Sadly, it's none of these things, but it's an alright shoot em up if you're bored, even if it's got not even superficial depth and is in fact a little bland.
Excerpt: "Oh dear....... This game looked o-so promising with the promise of mindless violence and destruction!! but no! Yes i must give this game a huge thumbs up but after a couple of hours of playing those tumbs started to turn down, due to repetative missions, lack of origionality and it just ends up as button bashing mayhem!! All that aside this game has alot of nice little features, for example, once you have blow a random person to pieces you can ...
Summary: I don't know what to make of this game. I think the idea is for it to be serious, but I wound up laughing at this game while playing it. You are going against the corporation and all h*ll breaks loose. For that matter, everything breaks loose. The crowd is all rioting by breaking into stores and stealling. You go around with your trusty baseball bat and club people to a nice pulp. But wait till the cops get a hold of you. You won't be a happy camper for long.
Summary: This game is cool when you see everyone running around. It's kind of funny. But this gets old real quick. You end up doing the same thing over and over. All the people running around are the same thing over and over. Rockstar is an excellent game producer with GTA under its belt and Vice City. But this is the WORST of all the games they ever made. I'm sure San Andres will be Awesome but SOE SUCKS! Sorry.
Summary: When I first heard about this game in late 2001/early 2002, I was pretty stoked. I mean, it was from Rockstar Games (the people who brought us the almighty GTA series), and it was about RIOTING. I figured, it would be like GTA3 (Vice City wasn't out at the time, remember?), and I could riot and cause all kinds of damage to a town! SWEET! Well, I bought the game, and for the first ten minutes, I loved it. Then, it got a little boring.
