Whenever we pay our little video games we always play the hero don’t we? We’re always the one saving the day, racing to the action, putting out fires, defusing bombs, or capturing criminals in a 50vs1 shootout, that of course is hugely against all the odds. But maybe you should spare a thought for the people behind the heroes. What about those who have to clean up the mess you made in your heroic attempts? Or the insurance companies that have to deal with the many claims after an event? Or what about the humble 911 operator?
911 Operator is available right now on Xbox One, and it will see you charged with the difficult task of managing a range of emergency calls that come in, distributing the details out to the right departments to deal with and trying to ignore the fake or unimportant ones.
With the option to play on through any real city in the world , with real-life procedures and first aid instructions, 911 Operator looks to be highly original and a must try for any wannabe hero – who doesn’t like to be a little heroic from behind a desk?
If you feel that being a 911 Operator is the job for you, then make your way over to the Microsoft Store right now and splash the £11.99 required. Keep an eye out for our review too.
In 911 OPERATOR, you take on the role of an emergency dispatcher, who has to rapidly deal with the incoming reports. Your task is not just to pick up the calls, but also to react appropriately to the situation – sometimes giving first aid instructions is enough, at other times a police, fire department or paramedics’ intervention is a necessity. Keep in mind, that the person on the other side of the line might turn out to be a dying daughter’s father, an unpredictable terrorist, or just a prankster. Can you handle all of this?
