Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

911 Fire Rescue. Man, where to begin?

So pretty much, you're a fireman, right? How hardcore is that? You know it's going to be a badass game if you're a fireman, don't you? Think about it. What did you want to be when you were a little kid? Damn right, a fireman.

To put a long story short, this game delivers.

Basically, the entirety of the game is putting out fires. Which rocks. I don't want to deal with some story behind everything that I do. I picked up Fire Rescue to do just that. Rescue people in fires. Which brings me to my next point, the people in the house that need to be rescued. This is what I like even more. Instead of going all dramatic, the people just disappear. Which rocks, because I'm not slowed down by the person or something. 

Your hose has infinite water, which is exactly what everyone needs! This hose is cool though because there's no hose behind you. That would be totally in the way. I'd have to watch over it or I'd trip on it and fall into the fire. Nobody wants realism. I'm on a mission, I don't need a hose tripping me up.

I can't even begin to tell you about the graphics either. Get this, after the fire, the furniture is totally intact. How cool is that? My awesome skills made it so that fire didn't even harm anything. Oh man what I would of done if my furniture was burnt after a fire. If that fireman doesn't save everything I own he fails and he should lose his job. Immediately.

The music for this game is top notch. The boys down at the lab must of spent months cooking these hot jams up. Instead of deep intense music, we're given heavy metal instead. Hell yeah! I don't want to hear something dull and boring. I want to head bang while I put out my fires.

But, and this is truly the best part. Sometimes there's different kinds of fires. There will be your normal fires. House fires and other such nonsense. Then there's chemical fires, which you have to shoot foam at, rather than water. It's pretty intense.

911 Fire Rescue deserves nothing less than an A+. After all, the brave men and women who put out those fires are depending on you. This game will teach you everything you need to know about being a fireman. End of story.

+ Great graphics!
+ Top notch gameplay. (No pesky hoses or limited amounts of water.)
+ No disappointment, since no furniture burns.
+ Rescuing people has never been more intense!
+ Different kinds of fire.
+ I'm done with this review.
