Right, my computer can't even run this nonsense. My dreams of being a "Recovery Search & Rescue" person have been flushed down the toilet thanks to this monstrousity.

All those years spent toiling over my dream job of becoming a "Recovery Search & Rescue" person were in vain as I found myself unable to access this top-of-the-range, realistic and lifelike simulation.

Probably the best part about this game is undeniably the price: I paid only $97.99 for an Uzbekistanian copy of the game, and really, who can put a price on saving the life of another human being? Even if they are only imaginary.

My wife left me, she took the kids, the house and my computer - quite frankly I don't even know how I'm writing this review down currently. But, alas, it was not to be.

I'll be damned if I don't get this game working with the roll of toilet paper and the stick I am currently holding.

I would rather die than see another virtual life perish.

Would absolutely recommend, as a professional of the trade, great for beginner "Recovery Search & Rescue" persons about the place, looking to getting started: you'll be a pro like me in no time (the secret is you press W to move forward).

A/10

my computer is able to run any game on ultra with no lag or graphical errors. This game lags on every setting whenever I turn it jerks the camera and I hate it and it makes it unplayable for me. It looks a fun game but is ruined by poor performance even on really powerful machines.

I'm really not quite sure what the developers were aiming for when they designed this simulator. What is claimed to be a 'Search and Rescue' simulator is more like a 'chase the red dot, and find the tiny objects hidden in the grass' simulator. You'll spend mission after mission traversing the countryside, searching for asthma inhalers, inflatable crocodiles, baseball caps, boots, and if you're really lucky, an immobile human being. Although the people looked more like broken animatronics slowly thrashing in the grass than any kind of real, injured person.

You have two modes of transport: your feet and your trusty bicycle. Although your bicycle seems to tear across terrain at the speed of an F16 Falcon fighter jet. Furthermore, your character seems to suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, and has trouble traversing the landscape for more than a few minutes at a time. Whether you're on foot or on bike, you'll likely become exhausted before you can complete your arbitrary mission. Once you get exhausted, your boss blessedly will end your outing... "You're in no condition to continue, Ranger."

You'll encounter all sorts of wildlife that meander around aimlessly, oftentimes with their hooves slicing through the air and failing to come into contact with the ground. They do not mind your presence, until you come within spitting distance, and then they'll leg it like a bank robber on methamphetamines. I approached an alligator, largely because I was bored out of my skull. I expected it to lurch forward and tear me limb from limb, a fine diversion from the monotony of collecting lost miscellania. But it did not even turn its head to look at me; it scrambled away like a frightened rabbit, and disappeared into the opaque water of a nearby river. There was nary a pixel shader or transparent surface to prove that there was ever an alligator there.

Graphics wise, the game is not particularly acceptable. Don't expect graphics along the lines of theHunter 2013 or Crysis. I turned the graphics quality up, and my hefty gaming rig experienced repeated stuttering and pausing. The grass became so dense I could barely find anything, and it even began poking up through the solid floor of my ranger station and through solid rock. I turned the graphics quality down, and it felt like I was playing on my old Nintendo 64. And in the default graphics quality midpoint, the object and grass pop-in was so obvious and awkward that I began to feel like a mystical druid from a discarded fantasy novel, causing plants to spring up and grow in seconds, whereever I tread. I also noticed z-battling issues on some of the textures (flickering between two textures for two objects occupying the same physical space), particularly on the battlements of the fort.

The boss of the ranger station, who only appears in text messages and never actually seems to appear in game, makes the attempt to be a lighthearted sidekick and ally, and the primary source of the weak 'stories' that might exist. He makes 'quips' when you find the wrong objects during your missions, and makes lousy excuses as to why he is not taking the missions himself: "I'd do it, but I've... uhh... I've got a migraine." One particularly strange mission requests you to find a little girl's diary, and a couple of emphatic comments are made about never, ever looking inside. Presumably she keeps her plans for world domination within.

The game might be fun for people looking for a very simple hunt and click game, and who are willing to overlook the aforementioned shortcomings, but I could not tolerate it for long. Perhaps worth the price for a few dollars, but not full price.

This game is outright horrible. Apart from the epic title music, there's no other music in the game. The sound effects are minimal. The interface is unhelpful and the mission progress is baffling. The game is nearly unplayable.

The most frustrating element is that the tasks are incredibly vague and difficult to locate. This game is mostly about finding small things like watches or footprints, but the graphics are so poor that these are nearly impossible to locate and the game does not make it any easier to identify. To make things worse, the game doesn't even tell you what to look for. Mission 5 involves searching for a red hat, but when you get to the area you waste time looking for a hat, but you're actually meant to find footprints that lead to the next clue area.

The stamina system is unworkable. You get tired from running or riding the bike - which is fair - but there are only two ways to regain stamina: either wait, or buy energy bars. Waiting is unfeasible because you only have a few minutes to complete each mission. Energy bars cost points, which are earned by completing missions. However, EVERYTHING you buy and use is persistent. If you use an energy bar and then abort the mission, the game saves that, which means you lose both your points and your item even though you left the mission. You could literally make the campaign unbeatable and you have to start another one from scratch.

The game is also buggy. On mission failures (very common when you're not told what to look for), the game may not take you back to the menu and you cannot quit the game, forcing you to force-quit the game.

Presentation is mystifyingly poor. There is NO ambient noise. No birds, no animals, no wind, no water. The visuals are downright lazy. There are perhaps five tree models and the same tree has clearly copy/pasted into an area to save time. The items are often plain models without any skins rendered. Then there are invisible walls everywhere. Don't touch water by the way: water is death!

The worst thing is that the title is an outright lie. Except perhaps "Recovery", since you spend most of your time finding lost hats and mp3 players. This is certainly no simulation. You go to this vague waypoint, look for something undefined, click on it, and done. There's no rescue or first-aid or any interactivity AT ALL.

The game basically allows you to cheat in order to get through the levels. You can call in a helicopter to take you ANYWHERE on the map at the cost of points, which is desirable and less expensive than having to ride there and consume energy bars. And if that doesn't excite you, by aborting the mission, you unlock the next mission anyway.

There are 40 something missions and they are literally all the same.

I'm a sucker for these cheesy little buys, but this isn't even worth the low cost. You are buying a headache. Playing this will necessitate a search & rescue for your sanity.
