Despite what the review says, this game is here. I forgot all about this thing and am surprised as anyone that it even exists, let alone that it's on GOG.
Fond memories of the early entries in the series, but I've heard mixed things about this one.
Anyone have any thoughts on it?
I'll probably be the lone king of this board for awhile...
I've been looking forward to this one in English for a while on PSVR. The game was cancelled due to the actual Earthquake in Japan right before its release, back in 2011. The story behind this one is actually fascinating as the original creators of the series purchased the franchise from Irem Software and have been working to restore it ever since. They were disappointed the title was shelved permanently instead of temporarily. They actually made a spin-off to the franchise as well, titled City Shrouded in Shadows, which is about Kaiju attacking Japan and plays just like Disaster Report. Its been a long road for this game, and I am really happy it finally got a release Stateside. It's been a blast to play in Japanese, but that's not my native language by any stretch so I don't understand a lot of the dialogue between people without needing to stop and translate important bits. I highly recommend Disaster Report 4 if you liked the older ones, and City Shrouded in Shadows (if you can get past the language barrier) if you like Godzilla, Evangelion, or Ultraman; both are unique nowadays and without support we wont see games like this.
