Real Heroes: Firefighter, Firefighting Game For Nintento Wii

    Conspiracy Entertainment and Epicenter released this game August 2009, and it never was a large hit as a top game but it is for some. Many of the fire fighters I know that play video games actually took a interest in this game and have bought it. The game features you starting in a fire house as a probationary firefighter, and you work your way through many different levels putting out fires and making rescues.
     I think this is a great game and have played it myself. I loved it, but then again I also love fire fighting. I think everyone should take the time to play it and they can see what fire does to a home and can see it from the view of the firefighter. One major thing I do see with the game is they left out all types of fire protection. Not on any level did I see a Fire Alarm/Fire Protection System initiated. I believe the coders of the game should have time to put in Fire Alarms on all the levels that are in residential homes, as for the commercial levels they should all be equipped with a building wide Fire Alarm System.
      They should also both have Fire Sprinklers installed in them. Yes I said both, the residential and commercial occupancies should have Fire Sprinklers installed in them, why you may ask? Because they save lives and property. When a fire breaks out in a building the Smoke Detectors initiate and alarm to sound to warn and occupants, so they may get outs safely. With a sprinkler system installed it will be able to control the fire and keep it in one are until the Fire Department can arrive to fully extinguish the fire. A myth about Fire Sprinklers is that if one goes off, they all go off just like its showed in movies. There is a type of system that does work in that manner, its called a Deluge system, but it is rarely used!!! The most used systems are wet type systems in which the pipes are always pressurized and the sprinkler heads have glass bulbs or metal springs that heat up, from the fire, and allow water to flow onto the fire. Another thing many people do not know is that having fire sprinklers installed in your home can help you save on your home owners insurance. They are required in most commercial occupancies, for good reason, so you do not have an insurance break there.

  3. I COULD TOTALLY GET THIS GAME! to make it better they should add like a really strong heater to the bundle, and as you get closer to the fire the heater heats up!

  4. I agree with Potshot. But I think it would be better if he controller got hotter the closer you got to the fire. Until the point where it burns you hands. That would really teach people.
