Who could ask for a better game?

State of Emergency

From Rockstar Games, the sick and twisted minds behind Grand Theft Auto and its sequels have unleashed their second salvo onto the general public.

You're starting riots and causing a revolution in this one, and having an unbelievable amount of fun with this one. You can even beat someone while they're down.

From the Ministry of being a morally devoid sociopath in this one. Mr. Tall, Vinder, Galactic Phantom and Jeremy Jive can attest to my inhumanity and sick amusement in blowing a riot cop's head off literally with a minigun.

That's part of the appeal. I like the fact that I can go anywhere and do what I please, and can wander from the script.

Senseless carnage is worth it for me. Esp. the Kaos playstyle

From the Ministry of going to play it later today.

exactly. once the initial thrill of killing corporate security enforcers and ripping peoples arms off and beating them to death with them wears off you are left a fairly boring game.

much like GTA3.

Understand they it gives you lots of 'room' to manuver throughout the game, it just seems like a glorified version of final fight.

Again, the open ended story line and the ability to wander from the script is part of it's appeal. I like the fact that you can do what you please, explore the game to your heart's content and not be bothered with a constricting "there's-only-one-way-to-get-through-this-level" kind of game play. I don't necessarily dislike it, I just find a game like this refreshing, since I can do what I like and indulge myself as much as I like.

Okay, so then what makes for a good game and purpose for you?

From the Ministry of you're telling me the problem and not suggesting a solution. :)

-a well thought out story line(plot)
-strong characters
-innovative use of the technology

Don't get me wrong I like the ability to explore a game and run around in it but from what I've seen and heard of it, it just looks like any other 3d arcade beat'um up.

Though you are right it's not the typical beat'um up game, you're not saving the kidnapped girl, avenging a fallen friend/family member, you're fighting an 'evil' corparation.

GO TEAM MARKETING!!!!

It's a PS2 game that just came out on Friday. But there's going to be a PC version, I'm sure if the game takes off, and already I've found that the buzz surrounding the game as well as the (IMHO) spectacular gameplay are good indicators that it will happen. GTA3 is coming to the PC this spring or summer I believe.

From the Ministry of FYI

There's a similar game to this for the PC called Hooligans which is much more similar to the Command and Conquer style of play, only you're controlling Football (soccer) Fans and going on a rampage with them. Not quite the first person rush you can get with State of Emergency, it's still kind of funny in a sick way.

From the Ministry of was thinking of picking this up too, just to see how it is.
