  1. The lack of diversity in crises as well as being confined to a single game map causes it to fizzle out rather quickly.
  2. Graphically City Crisis is nothing special and after a while the gameplay does become rather repetitive as you simply perform the same operations over and over again.
  3. Even though it drove me nuts, I couldn’t put it down. It’s not a must have, but it’s well worth a look.
  4. 70
    Worth a bash if you can rent or borrow it from a friend.
  5. A fun and unique title that stands out from the crowd of sequels and me-too clones. Coupled with good gameplay and fantastic control and it's the first big hit for Take 2 on the PS2.
  6. My other complaint is that the environments aren’t very interactive. There is a giant amusement park that you can’t really do too much to.

    Short-lived but fun. [Sept 2001, p.145]
  8. While the game isn't especially amazing to look at or play, City Crisis scores points for originality.
  9. 60
    Sound fun? It had the potential, but difficult controls and lack of stunning graphics will leave most people wondering why this wasn’t released on the PSOne.
  10. City Crisis won't rekindle interest in the genre, but it will eat up a few days of your time.
  11. 55
    Simply too short to be a worthwhile addition to your PS2 library. Saving people and property is a mild diversion at best.
  12. While it's not inconceivable that someone would find pleasure playing this game, the vast majority of the buying public should wait for Namco's "Ace Combat 4."
