911 Operator Deluxe Edition comes packed with content. It suffers from fiddly controls, which hamper your success rate, but the audio work is good, and there is tonnes of detail to pore over.

The single greatest thing about PC gaming is that it's a medium which will explore every niche, and I was glad for a brief nose at this one. It is a bit crashy in its current form through, and that paired with the feeling that it needs a little more meat on its bones makes me more inclined to suggest waiting a month or two.

911 Operator really misses the mark. It's a good attempt at showing what a 911 operator may do, but you're effectively playing a mobile game on the Switch for the cost of a PC game. That $22 price point is a bit excessive, especially since various bugs and quality-of-life issues you'll get are really frustrating to deal with on the Switch.

911 Operator is a game that most would assume to be a laughably bad title. However, the game proves that wrong as it takes itself seriously and tastefully addresses the pressure that emergency services no doubt feel in reality. Approaching situations strategically will generate the best results, and handling emergency phone calls is an exciting concept.

If you fancy challenging your mind for a few hours with something that isn't too frenetic, then you might want to give this a go.

911 Operator successfully taps into some addicting resource management gameplay and effectively combines it with a unique emergency call center scenario. This foundation is solid, but repetitive mechanics combined with a lack of content and relative ease of progress leave this simulation feeling lackluster.

Overall the game just doesn't have enough going for it. The concept is interesting but the execution is lackluster to all but a very niche audience.

A wonderfully executed arcade game, slow yet quick paced, keeps you on your toes. An enjoyable point and click.

The price is a bit hefty, but it’s a clever idea that most definitely teaches you the way of the world, never letting you take things for granted. Unfortunately the awkward control scheme and the hugely repetitive nature will see you getting frustrated once the initial draw has worn off.

911 Operator is an interesting game which truly shows what it is like to be the person at the end of the phone who has to direct emergency crews around cities. This won’t make you envy the job but hopefully, give empathy. The game suffers from the repetitive nature of the missions, but I don’t think anyone is an expecting fast high-octane action. For the price, I imagine fans of strategy and simulation games will get the most out of this title!
