About This Game

You have command of paramedics, fire brigades, police and disaster relief. Send your teams out on tense real-time missions to deal with disasters in Europe's major centres. In the series' most absorbing game yet, you will extinguish major fires, track down buried victims and save whole cities with their populations and landmarks.
Develop your own strategy and remain in control of the situation at all times on sandbox maps.

There are four new single player missions where meteorite strikes threaten the population.

It is 1890. Asteroid Caligula passes the Earth’s orbit, coming so close to the planet that fragments breaking off it (meteorites) impact the Earth. A farmstead is struck and destroyed by a meteorite in the Rhine province of the German Empire. The conflagration threatens to spread to nearby towns. In this unique historical mission, the player takes charge of historical units (a pumper and firefighters) to get the situation back under control.

About 100 years later, Caligula is approaching the Earth again. Only this time, it is on a direct collision course with our blue planet. Once again, its coming is heralded by meteorite impacts. The player with his forces and vehicles attempts to contain the local disasters and protect the civilians at three different locations, including the city of Pisa, in which the famous leaning tower is destroyed in a spectacular meteorite strike.

Emergency 2014 includes the entire content of Emergency 2013 and Emergency 2012 DELUXE, and adds countless eventful hours of gameplay, new spectacular videos and new units such as fire helicopters and the historical horse-drawn pumper to the popular series.

Protect! Rescue! Salvage! – Be where you are needed most!

This is a good game, but it is almost the same as 2013.
You must see it as a DLC.

My advise is to wait for a sale.
I bought it for like €7.00, which is not so much.
I don't think it is worth €30.00.

This is a very interesting concept of a game, and the missions are quite interesting, and there's a rather nice freeplay mode... the problem is, the controls are rather... awkward. Your emergency personnel have almost no independent initiative whatsoever - for instance, in order to recover a casualty, you need to order your ambulance to move to them, order your paramedics to get out of the vehicle, order them to pick up the casualty, order them to return to the ambulance, and then (if in freeplay) order them to return to base. Generally, unless given explicit orders, your units won't do anything on their own... and complicating things, the interface for selecting and controlling your units is awkward.

Civilians are even worse. Its not that they panic upon seeing danger or anything, they just don't notice. They'll happily walk into a fire or a poison cloud... or, popularly, an electrified wire. You're supposed to be able to order police to establish a cordon, but this requires so much handholding it's almost pointless.

That said, if the concept appeals to you, the game is quite fun. It just has quite a few rough edges.

Great game, lots of potential, but constant bugs ruin the experience. Just basic things, like having dual monitors, cause Emergency 2014 to crash to desktop. Many bugs like this, which often cause crash to desktop, have been present for years, back in the Emergency 2012 days, right through to Emergency 2014 and the vendor never fixes them. It's very frustrating when mid game you are forced to watch a cutscene, which 50% of the time causes the game to crash. Basic software testing would make this game so much more enjoyable.

Emergency 2014 is a great game that holds the content from Emergency 2012, 2013 and new content for 2014. While the 2014 content is just new campaign missions, they are pretty cool.

For those new to the Emergency series, the game has you running the role of a dispatcher, dispatching fire, EMS, police and engineering classed vehicles to various emergency situations, such as heart attacks, fires, prison breakouts, or broken railway crossing sites.

Many bugs in the 2013 and 2012 content have been fixed in this release, which increases the playability of the game.

This game is no longer supported by the publisher. Even though I still play this until it crashes often, it is really not sellable to the public in its current state. If you buy games often then you can scribble with this one, but I wouldint recommend it.

Whatever you spend on this, assume it will be burned away.

This is a DO NOT BUY at over $5.

DO NOTpurchase under the following circumstances:
You have an MSI video card.
You are running windows 8 or 8.1.

If you already have Emergency 2013, this is not worth it full price. The campaign consists of only 4 mission.

It's a good game, but if you own any previous titles, wait for a sale.

Get this game if you love the concept of controlling emergencies and saving lives. It is absolute fun! More fun than it should be in fact. Espically in free play mode, yeah you can't mod the game. But big deal, the game is very fun on it's own. Challenge mode can get very hectic as there will be mulitple events you will need to control. Like in one section of town, there will be a massive fire that you will need to put out. A nasty traffic accident in another, and a bank robbery/bombing of a public area. These are events that you are in charge of handling. But man, when you do. You feel like a hero and when you fail it is the worst feeling in the world. Because usually it is due to a mistake on your part.

Overall, very pleased with my purchase. Recommend it to the fullest extent.

Emergency 4 aka 911 first responders was my favorite game for a long time. While this is a newer version of the same game, They left out one vary key feature. 2014 is unmoddable. If I could play the LA mod with this game I would love it. Unfortunately for me, the European type emergency vehicles kind of ruins the game. If that's not something that bothers you then I could recommend the game, if you're like me, I would wait for Emergency 5. I hear it is suppose to support modding again.

While this is a deep and well-built emergency sim, it has too many fatal flaws for me to recommend it. You are regularly given far fewer personnel than you need to deal with the rapidly escalating threats. The map is almost pointless, being tiny and difficult to orientate. The announcer will call out that something else has happened but only rarely will the game show you where this is. The tutorial also ommits key information that is necessary for future missions. You'll be told to 'use the ladder' and 'set a roadblock' in a split second without knowing how to do this. When you have 3 doctors and ambulances to deal with around 7 fire casualties and 11 sickness casualties, very little indication on how to evacuate buildings, rescue suvivours and deal with at least 3 things at once, it's not much fun. The difficulty reaches extraordinatary levels very quickly and it becomes a stress management game, not an emergency response management game. Better controls, a clearer tutorial and a little more leeway would've made all the difference.

It's likely I'll come back to the game and may persevere to learn it's unexplained complexities but the fact remains that within an hour of purchase I'm already frustrated and confused.

Apart from the minor glitch while rotating the camera view, this game is very fun! I have hooked on to this game since the day I bought it. There are very few games that will get me addicted but this game is an exception. This game has realistic units and different types of emergency vehicles at your disposal! A great game to have in my opinion....

Weirdly compelling fun for a while, and there's certainly something nice and different about an RTS where you're not trying to blow stuff up. I like the level of detail involved but there's just too much multitasking to really appreciate it. The absence of being able to pause to give orders makes it worse, hobbling the player's ability to play strategically (chopping down trees to slow down a forest fire for instance, instead of just spamming water tenders). Those with the reaction speed for this game will find it disappointing and those without will find it frustrating.
