You start out with control over a small part of one of eight European cities, and must manage your resources, such as fire trucks and police officers to respond to emergency calls, gradually gaining responsibility for more of the city. You engage with people via phone calls and select your response to the information you are given, be it a murder, wildfire or terrorist attack. Once you have completed the career element of the game, you can attempt the many challenges or replay the story on a higher difficulty.
The situations are based on real data for the area, adding a sense of realism, and the continual unfolding of events underscores the immediacy of your responses and the impact they will have, as well as the prevalent themes of responsibility, management and coping under pressure.
911 Operator Deluxe Edition
You can select the difficulty, and at higher difficulties, some options are taken away, like pausing and manual save.
The entire game is played on a map, which clearly displays what and where an emergency is, but some of the text is a similar colour to the background. Flashing lights are occasionally present. Important elements are outlined clearly with white, making them stand out from the background.
In emergency calls, all the dialogue is voiced, but some key information on the map is only displayed as text. None of the game's audio is necessary for play as it can all be displayed as text.
