  • Summary: Play as Nick Mason, an ex-US marine and part of T-Zero, the elite counter-gang unit. Specially trained in all areas of urban combat and armed with the very latest high-tech weaponry, T-Zero is all that stands in the way of total anarchy.

    Some will take Urban Chaos at face value and feel good inside with the game's many nods at the every day heroes of Americatown, USA. Others will take in the game's blatant sensationalism and wonder if it's not-so-subtle satire. Regardless, Urban Chaos: Riot Response is lots of fun, and merits a look from anyone who enjoys shooters.
  2. Urban Chaos brings together some solid gameplay that integrates the gimmick as well as can be done. Over that lies a layer of old school sensibilities and a feeling that'll have you jamming to Team America's infamous "America, **** Yeah." Put all of that together, and you've got a killer game.
  3. But it more than makes up for that with a smoking-hot single-player adventure sure to provide one last summer sizzle on your Xbox.
  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. It's goofy, satisfying, and unapologetically drenched in hilarious M-rated cussing, blood and ragdollery. [Sept. 2006, p.81]
  7. If you need a simple gunplay fix this could maybe see you through a weekend... [July 2006, p.92]

    Heavily underrated game. The missions are presented very well, the weapons are a ton of fun to use, and the optional cheats are good for a few laughs (squeaky voices anyone?). It's immensely satisfying killing the baddies in this game, the deaths are sometimes comical and sometimes gruesome. Headshots are beautiful, with the camera view flying right to them as their head explodes. I'd recommend this game to any Xbox owner, the only downside is it isn't backwards compatible with the 360 :( Expand
