Only for the patient few. You have to be pretty fascinated with emergencies to be overbearing, luckuly I am for one. Othierwise you get piled up by frustrations build into most aspects of the game.
On the plus side, you get three games in one (EM 2012-2013 and 2014). As a package the price is ok, but do wait for a sale. Prices have been €5-10, for which it would be an extremely good game.
I like this game a lot, and it has improved much since Emergency 4. Which means it is playable. For 2014 it is simply not good enough. There are things EM could have learned from even the earliest command and counquer games about unit control, which would improve the game a lot.
It is lagging, hard to control, lacks hotkeys (to the best of my knowledge) and had issues with crashes. Basically I wonder if the developers forgot to test the game. Especially since it is uninstructive and without any levels, e.g. easy-hard for campaigns. Because of lagging and other issues I also miss a half speed, or any other way of cleaning up during challenges.
Being an EM geek, former firefighter and all I enjoy the game, but
