State of Emergency is an action game released in 2003 by Take-Two Interactive Software. The game was released for PC (Windows), PlayStation and XBox.
State of Emergency allows you to take part in an armed revolution against the corrupt rule of the omnipotent corporations, which in 2035 took total power over the United States. As a member of the organization "The Freedom", we must overthrow the totalitarian regime and restore democratic rule. The revolution cannot do without casualties, so as one of the five heroes, the players set out to wreak havoc on the streets of The Capitol City.
The gameplay is all about taking active part in street riots. Players with a lot of freedom of movement plunder a city controlled by corporations, waging open war against the services subordinate to it. Opponents practically always have an advantage in numbers, attacking players with entire crowds. For this reason, the heroes have a whole arsenal of weapons, ranging from simple melee weapons to rocket launchers and chainsaws. To level the playing field, players can invite another person to play together and play together in split-screen mode.
