Summary: I never heard of this game before until my homeboy mentioned how it was a mixture of Def Jam: Fight for NY & Tekken. It came in the mail and I been playing it ever since. There are codes to unlock all of the characters (Including Tekken's very own Marshall Law & Paul Phoenix) but nothing to make the fights any easier. The special moves aren't what you think they are, but they will help when others are jumping on you.
Summary: This game is a solid fighter by namco. It has a huge story mode. its a 100 mission deep story mode. the weapons are great. You can use just about anything as a weapon baseball bats beer bottles and just about anything you can think of. Buy this game.
Summary: Urban Reign is one of those game that will appeal to a certain audience and was made for specific type of gamers. Its a beat em up game similar to final fight, death by degrees etc. Created by the same team that brought you the Tekken series it has that Tekken feel to it like that electric sprite you get whenever you hit someone. It has has all the makings of a beat em up urban areas, gangs to beat upc, weapons like bats, pipes, etc.
Great Beat'em Up From the Tekken and Soulcalibur Teams

Summary: Urban Reign is a great game if you willing to accept two things upfront. One its one hard game. And two,the story is pretty much nonexistent. With that said,lets start the review. When you first start Urban Reign (hereafter UR)your greeted to a few nice cut scenes that start to flesh the story out. Sadly after that the story is told via text before you start your missions (of witch there is 100 of).
Summary: I'm a Tekken Lover and just bought this item from Play-Asia. I've played this game a couple of time cause this game like Tekken Force in Tekken Series just "BEAT THEM ALL" with your grab, your combo and many more....
Summary: People should know before buying this game that it has NO 'true' Co-Op multiplayer! Most people playing a 'fighting game' know that having Co-Op is part of what makes a game fun. There are versus modes, of course, but the ONLY kind of Co-Op gameplay is in the 'Challenge' mode which you have to UNLOCK! Take a guess as to how long you have to suffer through the very punishing Story mode (3+ people versus 1 player) just to unlock it?
Summary: A smart and repetitive fighting game that will have you wondering why you haven't played this game yet. A unique set of controls will have you in a trance while you stomp, pile-drive, snap-arms, and run up walls flipping backwards to kick someone in the face.
Summary: Unfortunately, beat-em-up's are kind of a thing of the past. A few years ago they made a one last surge though and Urban Reign, reigned supreme. Back in the day, this genre ruled the arcades and consoles with hits like Double Dragon, Final Fight, and Streets of Rage. But slowly over time, the brawler got left behind and there was a sense that what could be done had already been done and that there was no more left to do.
