I AM ALIVE- Ultimate Rescuer



This is a short game currently being sold on PSN. The game, as explained so thoroughly by the title, is a game based on staying alive.The game is set in a post apocalyptic American city "Haverton"... (nothing new there) and well since most games are based on staying alive this is no new concept either, except now your biggest enemy is your stamina bar, yes there is no need to threat of alien invasion, zombies, marines or any truly dynamic enemies trying to "fuck you up", you are simply more likely to die because you haven't got any more soda cans to increase your stamina bar and therefore choke to death or fall from a building (since climbing is a massive part of this game). This review however is not a dig at I AM ALIVE. In all fairness it is a good game, and since the play through is around 4-6 hours depending on how much you care about others survival (loads if you like trophies), you don't really have enough time to get bored of the game before completion.


Unless of course you have to play twice .... yes twice, because you missed that one victim that you need to save to get the "Ultimate Rescuer" Trophy like me ....FUCK!!! and I wouldn't mind if I could go back to the "episode" that I missed her from,but there is a problem, if you go back to the episode you lose all your data in between the episode you are on and that episode you go back to, yes everything. Sooooo if you wanna wait to finish the game because your on the last episode and go back by clicking episodes later DONT!!, Once the game is finished its finished, you cannot go back, you cannot even load it up, the only option you have is to restart the game ...from the beginning and no you cant rush because you have to re save every victim, so, make sure you save them all on your first play through!! Also play on survivor since this mode really isn't that hard and you will get more trophies that way.


Ultimate Rescuer- Victim Location and item needed.

  • Victim #1 – The first victim is part of the opening tutorial, so you can’t miss him. He’ll need a first aid kit which is just across the street on the ground.
  • Victim #2 – When you are in the mall with Mei, at the top of the elevator shaft on the 5th floor, you’ll find an inhaler. Climb down the elevator shaft after that and you’ll find the old man who needs it.
  • Victim #3 – While climbing the tower to retrieve the medicine from the crate that is stuck, you’ll find a man who needs a first aid kit inside the building, just after you swing across using the hook.
  • Victim #4 – After you give Mei the medicine and you are leaving through the basement of the mall, you will come across a two men arguing and a woman asking for help. Kill the aggressive man to save the others
  • Victim #5 – The first time you enter the subway tracks, head to the far end of the tracks where it becomes a dead-end. In the room there, kill the two cannibals and unlock the prisoners to rescue them.
  • Victim #6 – Down in the sewers, you’ll find a woman on the other side of the bars who needs 2 cans of food.
  • Victim #7 – Down the street from Henry’s place you can climb across a building to reach the next victim, who you can see wandering around outside of the building from the street. Once you get across he will want five items (Meat, Inhaler, Food can, Fruit Cocktail, Soda). In exchange for a shotgun
  • Victim #8 – Head south from Henry’s place and stick to the right. You will find a wooden ramp with a ladder, and a victim who needs a cigarette at the top.
  • Victim #9 – After giving the man a cigarette, keep heading straight, back towards the subway tracks, and you’ll find a woman handcuffed to a bench once you get close a few thugs will pop out and try to kill you. Once you kill them, shoot her hand-cuffs off
  • Victim #10 – On your way to the ship, after you head down to the rubble, head to the far end of that road and you’ll find a victim trapped who needs your help to get out. The battery is on top of the building across the street
  • Victim #11 – On the ship, you will find stairs leading under the ship deck. Down there you will find a victim about to be killed. Kill his attacker and then give him some pain killers.
  • Victim #12 – On the ship, head to the end on the right, and you’ll hear a man asking for help. You have to climb over the edge of the ship at the “Quarantine – Keep Out” sign and come back up behind it. Enter the room and give him hydration salts.
  • Victim #13 – After you leave the ship, on your way back to Henry’s with the transmitter, you’ll find an elderly couple on the roof who want a bottle of wine.
  • Victim #14 – When you enter the hotel, the first room you can enter on the 1st floor should have two women in need of a first aid kit.
  • Victim #15 – On the 4th floor of the hotel, keep to your left and you should find a room where you can see into the room next to you and a man is about to rape a woman. Kill him with your Bow so you don’t attract any attention.
  • Victim #16 – When you reach the basement of the Hotel with Mei’s mother, go left after entering the parking garage and you’ll find a closed-door and a woman coughing behind it. Shoot your bow at it and wait a minute until they open the door. Once they open it, shoot the thug and then shoot the woman’s handcuffs off.
  • Victim #17 – Before you walk across the board to get to the building to set the fireworks off, climb down the giant hole and follow the pipe to give the man a first-aid kit.
  • Victim #18 – Inside the tower where you set the fireworks off and fix the elevator, right outside of the elevator, take a right past the bathroom and you’ll find a woman lying on a bed in need of hydration salts. You will also find the tomato needed for victim #19.
  • Victim #19 – Return to victim #9  turn around and drop down to the street level and head to your left, and you will find a ladder leading up the building. Up here you will find a lady in need of a tomato.
  • Victim #20 – Once you enter the amusement park, head straight and you’ll see a man lying on the ground behind the fence. Climb over and give him the first aid kit that’s right behind him. Now you’re all done and should have all the achievements.

These victims are pretty much in order but be vigilant, you will hear the Victims before you see them also victims 3,4,5,6,11,12,14,15,16,17 and 18 are all time based DO THEM WHILE ON THE EPISODE. (you cannot re-enter buildings)
P.S I missed victim #16
