  • Summary: Set in the not too distant future, Urban Chaos: Riot Response follows a year in the life of Nick Mason, returning from military service to find his home city ravaged by gang warfare. He is quickly enlisted into the ranks of the newly formed G18 Counter Gang Division; an elite enforcement unit granted special emergency powers over all other public services and tasked with securing the city and its citizens at any cost. With direct control over Paramedics, Police and the Fire Department, you must work together to save lives, property and your city. An innovative, voice activated control system issues orders to offer protection and tactical guidance in the fight for survival. [SCi Games] Expand

  1. It's really a testament to the game's quality that even though I found its politics and implications deeply troubling I was still won over by the amazing gameplay.
  2. Always enjoyable and never dull. It might lack polish in some areas but it makes up for it with loads of character and plenty of kick-ass, laugh-out-loud aggression. [June 2006, p.52]
  3. If you like your game with punch, this is as hard-hitting as they come. Varied missions and non-stop chaos make this a winner. [Issue 81]
  4. It’s not the best FPS ever made, but it is one of the more action-packed and genuinely interesting titles to come out in recent memory.
  5. The graphics are surprisingly impressive, movement is smooth and, despite the occasional feeling of repetition, the action is constantly fast-paced and compelling. [June 2006, p.118]
  6. As-is, playing Urban Chaos feels a lot like listening to a hit pop song. It's fun to hear the first few times, but repetition has its limits.
  7. If you need a simple gunplay fix this could maybe see you through a weekend... [July 2006, p.92]

    As soon as I saw you can taze people and bash thugs with a riot shield, I knew I had to buy this game. Even someone who doesn't enjoy action games will have loads of fun for hours. The huge selection of items and unlockables and loads of missions makes up for every problem the game has. Trust me, you will have a good time if you buy this game! It still holds up well even today Expand

    If you're looking for a highly satisfying shooter with a constant chaotic feeling, Urban Chaos: Riot Response is one very good choice. It may not have the technical perfection or history-value of some other shooters, but when it comes to fun, this game delivery the goods and shows itself as a really addictive experience. Expand
