112 Operator may not look particularly exciting to an observer, but to put yourself in the hot-seat and actually play is exhilarating.
Overall, 112 Operator is a fun game for anyone who likes to play management sims. Unfortunately, when the easy control system and preset stories wear thin, there’s nothing to keep this dispatcher from changing careers. I know the developers are planning to release more content, which will help, but I don’t think that will be enough to completely salvage the experience.
The game is great and keeps you on your toes. I love the variety and how different units play their parts. It is challenging but ultimately fun and rewarding. With a good flow of updating and maybe even mod support, it can continue to be a great game.
Despite its repetitive call cycle and crowded map, 112 Operator is a stressful yet enjoyable simulation/strategy game that truly shows the hardships of working as an emergency service operator. Plus, it helped bring closure to a childhood event that I didn't know I needed.
112 Operator is more of a spinoff than a sequel. It adds a few things, but also carries over all the problems of its predecessor. While there's still potential here for an enjoyable micromanagement game, it gets lots in the shuffle of bad design choices and repetition.
Being an emergency operator is probably not as fun or exciting as this 112 Operator shows us, but luckily, at Jutsu Games they have not taken that into account when offering us this excellent game of units micromanagement. Also, we may end up sending a police car to arrest a thief who is breaking into our home, who can say no to that?
