    I didn't expect much from this game, but it really surprised me. There's a lot of dark humour, and crazy situations that are right up my alley. I love the gameplay too. The graphics aren't exceptional, but it has nice diversity and great looking fire & explosions. After reading the EGM review, it sounded like they were talking about a different game. This game is great, and worth buying for sure. Full Review »

    The x-box systems days are numbered but it's games like Urban Chaos that breath little bit of life to the console. Urban Choas is a simple game but it manages to constantly keep you entertained with over the top violence, chaotic fps action, lots of fun weapons, some nifty gameplay mechanics, and a ton extras to unlock make the game worth a few hours of your time. Urban Chaos is by no means perfect but it's a simple and often repetetive game but most of the time the simple nature of the game works to it's advantage and the shield mechanic is simply awsome. Not quite worth 40$ but once it drops to say 20$ it's worth every penny. Full Review »

    This game is brilliant, Its perfect for everyone that just wants to be able to kill criminals in various ways including cleavers, circular saws, or battering them up. The shield makes this game stand out as other than Counterstrike (if im allowed to say that) its not in any other game...(or if it is then its not that good). For me, this is the perfect game as your a member of T-ZERO Anti Terrorist Riot Response (NOT G18 like the review says) and you get to do a variety of situations...and hit people with your shield. Granted, the game does get a little repetitive but you can earn different T-ZERO weapons through EMERGENCY missions which you can use for earlier missions just to make the killing a little more intense. To be fair....the only thing that I dislike about this game is (this may spoil a slight part of the game) that your riot shield can stop RPG shots....VERY unrealistic...Your shield also gets beaten up with bullet holes and cleavers get stuck in it. If your shield can withstand an RPG shot...Im sure the cleavers wouldn't even make a mark...But in all...THIS GAME ROCKS!!! well worth the money. Good job Eidos! Full Review »
