    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. A wonderful, must-play action game.

    The game never advances the genre, but its use of a protective riot shield, one that progressively takes damage to the point where it's almost impossible to see through, is certainly a nice touch. [July 2006, p.72]
  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.

    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. 70
    OK, so it doesn’t do anything revelational or new but at least it does it reasonably well in providing an intense and enjoyable experience. If the idea of playing a modern day Rambo and engaging in mass terrorist genocide, this game has something for you.

    If you need a simple gunplay fix this could maybe see you through a weekend... [July 2006, p.92]

    Playing as a law enforcement for once was quite the refreshment. Story may not be the best, but the brutality and action made up for that. Just legendary.

    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 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

The very first game developed by Rocksteady, the studio that went on to make the Batman Arkham Trilogy. Even for it's time, Urban Chaos is a mostly polished and enjoyable experience, despite the graphics looking very poor by today's standards. Though I will personally not buy this game, feel free to get it if you are a massive Rocksteady fan. Expand
