State of Emergency 2 to Retail for $29.99


State of Emergency 2, the follow up to Rockstar’s 2002 riot-simulator, is slated for a February release on the Playstation 2 and will retail for $29.99.

Although the original State of Emergency got mixed reviews and didn’t quite live up to the legacy of other Rockstar-published action games (GTA Series, Max Payne, etc.), I think that the main reason why many people were disappointed in the original was because it was released mere months after Grand Theft Auto 3 and most gamers were expecting a GTA3-calibur game. Instead of a huge game with dozens of hours of game play, they got a fun action/beat-em up that was high on fun though low on depth.

I honestly enjoyed the original State of Emergency. Maybe it was because my expectations were low, but I thought it was a fun, old-school style beat-em up that had a certain old-school charm that you will find rarely in games today.

A PSP version is also planned for a later release. No word yet on whether its going to be released for any other consoles, though the sales of the PS2 version will probably indicate whether there will be an Xbox or a PC port or not.
