While you must pass each challenge until you can go on, it does repeat alot of maneuvers, but helpful in the later stages when the actions come as second nature in battling fires, rescuing workers, and turning off gas valves, etc. We liked it so much we purchased after trying out (for two weeks) on Gamefly!

In most shooters, players blast the enemy with bombs that start fires. But in a twist, players in Real Heroes: Firefigher have to put out blazes caused by something (not likely a bomb.)
This is a shooter where you are a firefigher and it’s your task to put out certain fires, lead people to safety, carry people/animals to safety and break down doors and other barriers.
There are eight chapters in this game, and most players will get through it in about four to six hours. Problem is, after going through the game the first time, I have no reason to give this game a second go.
Another problem with Firefighter is that there isn’t much variety in the tasks you have to perform. You put out some fires, rescue people/animals, hit switches, and bust through some barriers. And you repeat the process in the next level, and the level after that.
The level design here doesn’t help; in the Museum stage has me going from one exhibit room to the next and putting out the fire in that exhibit room. Also, I feel like I’m being herded from point A to point B; there’s invisible walls, fires I can’t put out, and doors I can’t bust through - even when I should be able to.
Real Heroes: Firefighter is a unique look at a shooter, but it needs more creativity in the level design and gameplay. RENT IT

For one the graphics are good, they haven't made any games lately that are realistic as being a firefighter in a long time, With my husband being a firefighter he says this game is great, only thing is he wishes there was alittle more action in the movement of the trucks and equipment but its worth a buy and rent
Hope they come out with more games like this
