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: The multiplayer game consists of team-based Counter-Strike-style objective-based missions; one team plays T-Zero, one plays the terrorists; protect T-Zero vans, or VIPs, or suchlike, and it’s great… The only problem being that during this review we only ever found other people to play it with online twice, and the most we ever managed was 2 versus 2 – some of the maps are quite expansive and the maximum 8 players would have been so much better, but no one seems to be...
Pros: A bit of an unexpected gem, Bloody, violent and action-packed, Cool weapon set that does loads of damage
Cons: Could have been longer, Not the prettiest Xbox game out there, No one playing it online, Not currently 360 compatible
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.
