    Urban Chaos Riot Response doesn't try to be something it's not. The graphics are average and the gameplay is simple. What this game is though is fun. Simple and fun. In Urban Chaos you play as a riot response officer in a unit called t-zero that has been orginized to take back the city from the gangs. The story isn't much to speak of but once again that is not what makes Urban Chaos Riot Response doesn't try to be something it's not. The graphics are average and the gameplay is simple. What this game is though is fun. Simple and fun. In Urban Chaos you play as a riot response officer in a unit called t-zero that has been orginized to take back the city from the gangs. The story isn't much to speak of but once again that is not what makes this game good. This game plays like an average fps with a few cool twists. First of all the riot shield, which you recieve early in the game, is an essential tool and a lot of fun to bash people over the head with. It protects from litererally anything the enemies can throw at you but it you make invulnerbale as enemies tend to attack from all sides. You have a pretty large arsenal and can carry as many weapons as you please. You'll get a very handy pistol and tazor to start and get other such weapons as shotguns, assault rifles and oh chainsaws to use at your leasure. Though most of the weapons aren't essential they are a whole lot of fun to use. The main draw of Urban Chaos is the arcadic styled gameplay. The gameplay is chaotic and there is rarely a break from crazed mask wearing "terrrorists" charging at you with a meat cleaver or a chainsaw. The game doesn't shy away from the blood and it is every so satisfying to blow off an enemies head in mid-air and watch him crumple to the pavement with a steady stream of blood squirting from his neck especially in slowmotion. In every level you are tasked with trying to complete goals such as 10 headshots or 10 arrests and taking a gang leader alive. Completing these tasks helps you get medals and there a hell of a lot of medals to be won and they unlock new items and upgrades for your weapons. Throughout the game you'll also help out fireman and paramedics. Overall Urban Chaos is a perfect game to get your blood going during the slow ass summer season. Expand

    I love this game - because it's a 'game', not trying to be an 'experience'. It's packed with collectibles and that gives an infuriatingly addictive feel. I don't get why people think it doesn't look that hot - I think these reviewers must be looking at too many Xbox 360 games in between their PS2 sessions.

    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

    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.

    Great shooting, epic-set pieces, regrettable sewer level. This is a satirical, heartfelt love letter to the kind of police force we'd like to join. [May 2006, p.74]

    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]
  3. PSM2 Magazine UK

    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]
