Burning Rangers is a 1998 action-adventure game developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for the Sega Saturn. The game follows a team of firefighters known as the Burning Rangers as they attempt to extinguish fires and rescue people in peril.
The game was praised for its graphics, music, and gameplay, but was criticized for its short length. Despite this, the game was a commercial success, selling over 1 million copies worldwide. A sequel, Burning Rangers 2, was released for the Dreamcast in 2002.
Burning Rangers is a third-person action-adventure game in which the player controls one of two firefighters, either the male Shane or the female Nina. The player must extinguish fires and rescue people in peril using an array of firefighting tools. The game is set on a series of interconnected stages, and the player must navigate these stages to reach the exit. Some areas of the stages are blocked by flames, and the player must extinguish these flames to progress.
The game features a day-night cycle, and the time of day affects the gameplay. During the day, the fires are more easily extinguished, but at night, the fires burn more fiercely and are more difficult to put out.
The player can use a variety of firefighting tools, including a hose, an axe, and a fire extinguisher. The player must also use these tools to break through obstacles, such as walls and doors.
The game is played from a third-person perspective, and the player can switch between the two characters at any time. The game features local co-operative multiplayer, allowing two players to play together.
