If you dig fighting action and strategy from a helicopter point of view, Urban Strike is excellent. The Strike team strikes again!
Despite this game's flaws, there aren't any war games that play as good as Urban Strike, so if you're on the war tip, get this game.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
Even if you're not a fan of B-grade war movies, you should give Urban Strike a go, 'cause you'll probably get it in no time. If (like Crispin Glover) you're a big Chuck Norris fan, all of your friends will probably start to gets annoyed by the sounds of your shameless gushing.
The Video Game Critic
The first two Strike titles allowed you to blow up targets all over the world. These campaigns take place in the dense cityscapes of New York, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. You get to control two types of helicopters, as well as a ground vehicle, and in some stages you can run around and attack on foot! This is probably the ultimate Strike game, and if you're not sick and tired of this series by now, this should do the trick.
Don't get me wrong --- Urban Strike easily hits the standards set by previous Strike titles and that's more kick than most other games around, but at six levels it's over kind of quick. I have to admit that Urban Strike leaves me hungry for more and looking around for something new to satisfy my gaming appetite.
Urban Strike håller samma kvalitet som sina föregångare men är inte bättre. Jag hade hoppats på lite snyggare grafik och lite mer varierande uppdrag, men man kan ju inte få allt här i världen.
There are, of course, some people out there who absolutely hate the entire gameplay style of the Strike series. They, of course, can leave this one alone. To everyone else? Well, first I'd recommend you pick up Desert Strike. If you love it, go for Jungle Strike. And if you're still not tired of the formula by then? Pick up Urban Strike. The reason I'd save it for last is because, despite how good the game is, there's something wrong – some monkey wrench lodged deep in the gears and machinations of the coding. (No, it's not just the run-‘n-gun drivel.) It's more basic than that, almost more a sin of omission than commission. It's as if the game simply doesn't possess the genius, the inspiration that powered the first two games. But it's still a great adventure and deserves a play…eventually.
