I really enjoyed rescue team 1 & 2 so was glad to try the 3rd game. This version is Fast paced and fun. Some of the improvements to the game were positive such as
the better animation of characters, the inclusion of robbers, doctors & firemen. The use of a small tick to register a selected action was an excellent idea, particularly useful when the game reaches a more hectic pace. Having a best time record was also a positive change.
I loved the animal rescue scenarios - rounding up the rabbits and squeaking badgers made me laugh. I think that a purley animal resuce game would be amazing.
Changes to the game that were embarrassingly annoying were the characters and conversations between each level. Trying to appeal only to a male audience I think is also a mistake and may account for the reason why this version of the game is rated lower than the previous games. However my biggest grumble about this game is the fact that the gameplay to achieve gold level is virtually impossible to acheive on many levles and I doubt very much that any of the staff that developed this game actually trialled the game to this level. The time is ridculously short on many levels and even perfect game play will not acheive gold - frustrating and reduceds replay value. I have played Rescue one and two and felt that the levels were set just about right, they gave you a challenge that you could eventually achieve …..this aspect of the game 3 is very annoying.
