EMERGENCY 3 reviews and comments

The control is rather questionable and hardly playable I would not bever even if that is already bit old ...

With Emergency 2, Emergency 3 is one of the Best Parts of the Emergency series. Not as demanding as the 2-man, but still better than the new Parts of the Series.

download Emergency HQ on your Smarti. It feels better, looks better, and the usability is much better. This game is not really worth the 5 bugs anymore... perhaps 15 Years ago... but not now.

The game is quite entertaining, in its time was a great game and today is not left behind, fully translated from texts, a gameplay that does not give to spend hours and hours played, is acceptable if you just want to hang out.

Unlike in newer emergency games, the Challenge here is not "what Unit should do next?" But "How on earth do I get this Unit to do what it's obviously supposed to do?." I don't get clear with The Operation (even after the Tutorial).

Emergency is one of the Games that is played not only in 5 STDS, but in, what do I know, for how long. Emergemcy 3 has many Missions and long Gameplay. But because of the Stakes, that can change. On my PC with (GTX-1070), the Game just stops for 10-15 Seconds until it continues for a few Minutes or it stops again afterwards. That, of course, excites. However, It is no longer possible for today'S PC's, because the Requirements in the PC's are usually greater than those of the Game's. What I mean by this: The PC is too good for the Game (Requirements). That was my Opinion. Not recommended For today'S gamers. Recommending for slightly older PC's

Oh yes, the good old Emergency 3...The Graphics are a bit old, but it is sometimes very demanding tactically And sometimes you need several Attempts until the Mission is in place, but that has the Charm and Excitement of the old Emergency Parts 1. , 2.3 and 4 accounted for ... And to that, gabs in Emergency 3 for the first Time in the Series walkable houses, which significantly increases the Fun of The Game! Is somehow incomprehensible to me how you couldn't build on the predecessors in 2016 with the Most corked Emergency 5 ...!!! No walkable Houses, Wayfinding Problems etc and somehow hats just don't have a Soul ... In Terms of Programming technology, all this should be feasible, when it was possible as early as 2005! Conclusion: Still a great Game with exciting Challenging Moments that does everything right that unfortunately can no longer be implemented in Emergency 5. In my Eyes, is definitely worth more Than 4 Eur.
