    Thumbs up Firefighting PlayStation Game

    Any of you video game players out there be sure to check the racks of your stores for Konami's new game "Firefighter F.D. 18" I picked up my copy last night and so far think it's pretty dang good. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest, I'd give it a solid 8.

    Have fun and stay safe out there!

    I got it last week for my birthday and have been playing it everyday since then. It is a good game, challenging. Graphics are pretty good. My biggest complaint is than when you kneel down, you cannot flow water. Other than that, is a good game.

    Thumbs up that looks cool!

    one question though, what's with the "electrical gun" he shoots the fire with at one point?

    Thats not an electrical gun, it shoots bursts of water. Good short term solution to lots of fire. You hit with the gun, switch over to straight stream and march on.

    Bored is an understatment! I wish I could bring my Playstation to work some times... That might be pushing my luck though!

    As for the "electrical gun".... I have no clue either. It really doesn't do much during the game either. This gun and like somebody else said, the fact that you can't flow water while kneeling (duh, don't we flow most water on our hands and knees?) are all that I've found that rub me wrong. All in all, not too bad though!

    Stay safe

    I read about this in a magazine and it looks pretty cool. To expand this thread I was wondering what are some other PS2 everybody likes and/or is waiting to come out. And also does anyone bring their PS2 to the firehouse??

    Some of my favorites are Need for Speed Underground and SOCOM II and the Splinter Cell's and Ghost Recon's. the game im waiting to come out is Grand Turismo 4.

    we bring a ps2 to the fire hall just about every saturday night ( that is when i do duty), we will usually play a racing game such as ATV off-road 2. or Collin MacRay racing. collin macray is a great rally car game. the graphics are some of the best i have seen.

    Take my ps2 to the station... nah, I have one at the station in my locker with 13" TV, and another ps2 at home. It got old dragging it back and forth... so the Mrs. said to get another...

    As for games, I'm not one to buy a whole lot of them, so I'm picky about the ones I get. SOCOM 1 & 2 are still probably the most played. NASCAR thunder 2003, maybe I'll get the '04 one day. Even though I beat it many moons ago, it's still fun to drive around and create havoc in Vice City.

    I've seen the article about the fire game.... still unsure about getting it. I'm waiting for : Shellshocked: Nam '67 to come out... I'll prolly get it.

    Man, it took me years just to figure out Coleco Head to Head Football!! One of my buddies tried to get me to play some shoot 'em up game...I blasted everything in sight, including him!! (He never invited me back to play again.)

    I read a while back that they were making this game a while ago and it was taking to long so they threw together vice city and continued to make this new one. seeing how vice city was very good i think this one will blow all the others away. If you listened to one of the radio shows in vice city they mention something about another city and a future game.
