This is a game that is aimed at a younger audience and I reviewed with kids in mind. There isn’t a lot here for the seasoned, more mature player, but I really think that if kids can see there’s more to gaming than blowing stuff up they’ll really get a kick out of Matchbox: Emergency Patrol. There can be no question that the Game Boy Color is on the way out. Its capabilities just don’t hold a candle to the Game Boy Advance. But if Emergency Patrol is any indication, there’s still some life in the old boy just yet.

Gameplay becomes more time consuming as the missions progress, but as each mission is completed players are promoted through the ranks, from rookie up to chief. Advancement is a simple accomplishment and hinges mostly on gaining familiarity as the game is played. Even young children will have no problems controlling the game and most will be excited at the premise. In Matchbox Emergency Patrol, chasing bad guys, fighting fires, and patrolling the neighborhoods is all in a hard day's play.
