Real Heroes: Firefighter (Wii)

 

Playing as a firefighter in Real Heroes: Firefighter obviously isn't as grueling as facing down flames in real life, but this Wii game is as close as most of us will want to get to donning protective clothing and hauling around a giant hose. Developer...

Real Heroes: Firefighter

 

You are the newest recruit at a busy metropolitan firehouse (you'd think your name was “Probie” from the sheer number of times NPCs refer to you in this manner – presumably it means “on probation.” I can't imagine anyone on Earth actually speaks in...

The concept was good, and different – I’m surprised no one had thought of this before

Unfortunately, the ever popular “Epicenter Studios” are the clowns who actually did think of it, so what you get are atrocious controls and a camera which tends to go completely out of control, regardless of how careful you are to maintain stability ;...

Real Heroes: Firefighter is basically a first person shooter placed in a burning building. The enemies are still being shot at, but this time by water, and requiring a lot more than a simple grenade to take them out. Using a fire hose is a lot of work....

It's no secret that the Wii library is saturated with exploitative shovelware, dozens of titles designed and marketed for the gullible non-gamer crowd. At first blush Real Heroes: Firefighter might look like just another one of those games, but it has...

Real Heroes Firefighter might not look too pretty but it has it where it counts, namely addictive, accessible gameplay. I appreciate the more serious approach to firefighting and the quality voice acting. This is a great family game and a good deal at...

Real Heroes: Firefighter Review

 

Relive all your fantasies of breaking down someone's front door with a great big fire-axe in Epicenter's Real Heroes: Firefighter, without any of the splinters, criminal charges, or legal fees to worry about. Just don't expect ultra-realism.

Obvious puns on fire aside, this game provides a pretty solid experience that tries to go beyond just being one of the few fire-fighting sims on the market. The levels are varied and interesting, the control scheme works well, and this game presents...

No multiplayer options, dated graphics, and somewhat 'interesting' AI scripting bog the experience down. A more open-ended experience would also be nice, rather than being led around by the nose all the time

Real Heroes: Fighterfighter is unquestionably the finest fire-fighting game I've ever played, but that isn't saying much given how this isn't exactly a budding genre. The price point isn't too bad either with the game's average selling price of $40...

Blazing a trail through lesser budget fare

Solid, intuitive Wii Remote controls ; Intense moments amidst unpredictable flames ; Nothing else like it out there

Annoying AI character actions ; Story and squad mates are uninteresting ; Short campaign, no co-op/multi

Not helping matters is the game's rather short length: we burned (pun intended) through the adventure in about four hours - not quite long enough to develop any memorable characters. And considering how much time is spent working alongside other...

Unique, pseudo first-person shooter that's a very solid Wii effort.

I wouldn't put Real Heroes: Firefighter over the Wii's best first person shooters: it's going to take more than dousing flames to trounce games like The Conduit and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. But the Epicenter Studios' game is a nice supplemental FPS...

Don your big yellow hat and venture into burning buildings in this engaging firefighting simulation.

Unique firefighting gameplay ; Lengthy, involving levels with lots of challenges and puzzles ; Good, if cheesy, script and voice acting

Overly sensitive Wii Remote controls ; Can get a little repetitive

Real Heroes: Firefighter (2009) on Wii

 

Featuring Epicenter's proprietary "Thinking Fire" technology, Real Heroes' blazes will seem almost alive as they not only attack structures, potential victims and firefighters, but also cause unexpected changes to the environments that will suddenly...

Unique, pseudo first-person shooter that's a very solid Wii effort.

Hands-On: Real Heroes: Firefighter

 

When Nintendo first debuted the unique control scheme of the Wii, gamers everywhere considered how it could revolutionize a specific genre of games: first-person shooters. And while we've seen a handful of great games that have intelligently integrated...

Pyromaniacs beware!

Unfortunately, the game is marred by a few flaws. First of all, and most importantly, in my opinion, is the sound. The sound isn't terrible but it is only stereo. The game would have been much better served by being in surround sound. Imagine, if you...
