Anyone know of any? The disaster genre hasn't been exploited anywhere near enough as far as I can make out, and I'm looking for something else to scratch that itch.

I know there's a flooded underwater base mod for the original Half-Life that was pretty decent but aside from that and the aforementioned SOS, I'm stuck to think of any more.

I've not even tried SOS, how was it? Always sounded like an interesting idea.

A game like SOS? You mean something with bad graphics and clunky controls?

Try the Wii :)

It's fantastic. As WOPR says, it's very clunky but the concept more than carries it through. As I say, it's a genre that really needs exploring more

Nah, if it was just bad graphics and clunky controls I wanted then I'd play ICO ;-)

Aye, there's that wii game Day of Crisis. And you'd be correct, it does look shit.

It's too hard to link here cause it won't let me c/p the code for some reason and keeps screwing up when I try to type it.

That's a screenshot though. :)

Helped. I think. And yes, definitely not something for me.

There's a few Helicopter Rescue type games for the PS2 but their names escape me.
What about "Exit" for the PSP. That's the "Escape from the burning building" puzzler type game isn't it?

Here's the wiki page for "Survival" games it may give you some pointers.

Survivor's out at the end of this year apparently.

Ah, I'd forgotten about Survivor. Cheers :-D

Another one I know is coming to next-gen is Alive by Ubisoft. Dunno if it's this year though.
