I thought Fire Fighter's graphics were pretty good and it controlled well. But that's where the positives end.
I've always been disappointed in this game, because I've always felt it would be a great game if there was just a little more to it. I'm not exactly sure what that "little more" should be, though.
The little fireman is animated so well and has that nifty little "sproing" noise when he jumps and I just wish you could do more with him than just run back and forth under the windows and to the truck.
Maybe a second screen showing the inside of the building, turning it into an exploration game where you have to put out fires as you go, climbing up and down stairs and searching for the person you need to rescue. That might have been more complicated than the 2600 could handle, though.
