Summary: As a firefighter, I can say that this is the closest you can get to actual fire fighting without being in the heat. I've never seen a game that comes as close to this for being realistic. I had bought it for my stepdaughter (11yr old) but, I played it more instead. She says it's too hard.
Summary: Arrows in objectives can be a little confusing at times and when rescuing civilians they can make some ridiculous remarks. But maybe this is what fire fighters really have to deal with. All in all this game is definitely worth the purchase.
Summary: My eight year old son can't get enough of this game. He plays it over and over, even after winning all the scenarios several times. Highly engrossing for a kid interested in firemen, heroes, and how real life works. I only wish there were more levels or maybe a Firefighter II game.
Summary: Received this game for Christmas. As a middle age firefighter, I thought this game was very exciting and realistic from the start. First like any newbie on the department, you go through your training. It shows you the different tools you can use and how to find them on the controls. It also puts you in different situations. Then the good stuff comes. You then respond to your first fire. Look forward to playing it again when my shift is over.
