Urban Chaos: Riot Response
15 December 2006
Summary: The excellent shooting and non-standard setting set this game apart and make it worth your time and money. The story may not be all that, but the presentation is pretty good and the graphics certainly aren’t shabby, especially the outdoor environments with the bloom lighting. This game has rekindled my love for shooting enemies and I’ll never get tired of the rewarding squish of an enemy’s head popping from my gun.
Pros: It’s not a military FPS, shooting is great, aiming is precise, it’s just fun to play
Cons: Story is fairly poor, some bad level design, could use more enemy variety
Summary: Urban Chaos is one of those games that while it's good and fun to play it had the potential to offer a lot more and be a lot better. The overall game is a lot of fun, you'll play through it and enjoy what's there but more variation in the missions and the objectives within them would have put the game up a couple more notches, it's not particularly long and if you're not able to play the online multiplayer or system link then after completion there isn't much to bring...
Excerpt: Rocksteady is unlikely to win any awards for its no-holds-barred ultra violent FPS Urban Chaos: Riot Response, but they have created a genuinely fun experience. It's not a game you'll want your kids or your disapproving partner to see, as it'll only reinforce what they think is bad about videogames, but for anyone who plays video games to be entertained, Urban Chaos is a nice slice of over the top fun.
Conclusion: Unterm Strich bleibt Urban Chaos jedoch ein klarer Geheimtipp für Shooter-Fans, die es gerne mal wieder klassisch mögen. Wer mit Duke Nukem oder Sin aufgewachsen ist, sollte dem Eidos-Titel dringend eine Chance geben.
