4.0 out of 5 stars I'm in charge. 6 Dec 2013

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a novice to this type of game and had to ask a friend's young son to show me what to do.
I did enjoy the level of control you get, choosing staff, managing incidents, and trying to be a 'hero'.
Not sure who it would appeal to - there seems to be such a wide choice of games available now for PCs and I am new to these.
Everything seemed to work properly - sound, graphics, etc. so I am satisfied with this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple but fun 5 Dec 2013
By The Kimi-Chan Experience VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game has a simple premise, but the variety of vehicles and the fact that it is easy enough to play with the younger children int eh family make this a game easy to like. The graphics aren't bad, the loading time was acceptable, and the scenarios not too repetitive. navigation could be improved, and the gameplay is simplistic enough that while fun, it's a game I expect to go to for light relief every now and again rather than sitting there engrossed for hours at a stretch.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same... 11 Mar 2014

My review isn't going to be amazingly different from those that have gone before.

The game is very clunky, and strikes as something that although a considerable level of effort was put into the game engine - very little else was considered. Oh sure, its diverse, and as an RPG format for pretending you're a Fire Chief - its right up there on its own. The Emergency series is 'better' in terms of its interaction/AI/graphics/etc, but with Rescue 2013 - you get to manage your staff and their careers. There's more development there - if you try to save money by only having junior firefighters, you get lackluster performance from them - whereas at the other end of the scale, you have 'Leading Firefighters' and they're brilliant at what they do, but cost an arm and a leg to maintain.

Overall, its very simplistic, and very unintuitive. As has already been raised here, during an 'alert', you have a limited time window to respond to an emergency, and half that time is taken up trying to get your people to do things. They also walk far too slowly, taking up precious seconds. For example, on a medical emergency, your paramedics are slow and annoying. Setting up the firehoses might be amazingly accurate - but its a pain in the backside.

I would have to concur with others - this is a game for kids - amazingly bright kids who don't get frustrated at every turn by annoyingly cheap programming problems - but kids none the less. Adults will find this game extremely lackluster, especially as they know that there are considerably better alternatives out there from the Emergency series. I'm a big Emergency 4 fan myself - believing it to be the better of the range, and the more recent stuff isn't as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent For Kids 26 Nov 2013
By Coincidence Vs Fate TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If like me you think you'll scream if you hear the FIFA 14 music again then Rescue 2013 could provide a little light relief.

The premiss is you're the head honcho of the fire and rescue service. You can control loads of different types of vehicles and rescue pesky civilians from burning buildings and that. I thought my son would lose interest fairly quickly but he really stuck to it and picked it up well.

For the adult the game probably isn't as entertaining for the long term but I've had a couple of goes myself and it really is quite exciting.

It has its limitations but it looks nice and has pretty addictive gameplay. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun worth a try 25 Nov 2013
By Zip Domingo VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In my own sad way I am an unashamed fan of Excalibur Games and I think, from the starting point of clearly a limited development budget, they've come up with some pretty good family sim games and they are actually improving all the time, and this is a good example of where they are at the moment. It's good that the content is UK/European orientated and it can at times be rather exciting, with a good choice of vehicles and scenarios. It's particularly good for younger members of the family, but it's equally good for a simple relaxing play for old codgers like me.

Excalibur may have knocked out some howlers in the past and their games are still a bit basic, but I've always admired their verve and commitment to continually improve. For under 20 I think this game is good value, and worth a try.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Excalibur shovelware 26 Sep 2013
By Steven Brown TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Yet another feeble offering from Excalibur Publishing - fast becoming a computer game byword for junk.

This is another title along similar lines of their other products, using the same dud interface and game engine.

Avoid like one of the buildings on fire this game depicts.
