Real Heroes: Firefighter is at its core a first-person shooter, developed by a team who previously worked on the Call of Duty franchise during the previous console generation. After branching off they decided that shooting Nazis had grown tiresome, and they needed a change of pace. Instead of a war hero you take control of a newly-graduated firefighter put straight into the field. This isn't your normal first-person shooter though; instead of shooting enemies you are dousing fires in different locales and situations. The result is a first-person shooter that a six-year-old could safely play without psychological repercussions.
