If Grand Theft Auto made you pull the hairs out of your head then prepare for another hair-cut. Urban Chaos is sooo frustrating on the control side of things, but the style of gameplay will be a massive hit with many of you. It covers many genres. It is a beat-em-up, shoot-em-up, platform, action, adventure... Jack of all trades... Master of none? Possibly. This may not be the best game on Playstation, but because of it's nature and content it could easily become one of the biggest.
When all is said and done and the pros and cons have been thrown in the mixer together, Urban Chaos is a brilliant game to play. Sure, the graphics could have been better, but the depth and entertainment combined with the freedom you have to do as you please are awe-inspiring. There are hours of play to be had with the different CPU-controlled aids and some dodgy scenes to look out for - for example, there is a very suspicious-looking scene where two officers are standing over a half-naked body of a dead girl - and they look very nervous indeed. The overall verdict? An engrossing title that will give hours of pleasure to all types of gamers.

Om det hade varit lite bättre utfört så kunde Urban Chaos blivit en riktig PlayStationklassiker. Bortsett från problemen så är det ett av de mest spelbara erbjudandena den här månaden.
Urban Chaos is een spel dat je zeker in de gaten moet houden want het belooft een waar schiet- en beuk festijn te worden. Een absolute must-have voor iedereen die graag met wapens loopt te zwaaien.
L'adaptation de Mucky Foot tient sincèrement bien la route. Bien sûr, la foultitude de petits détails croustillants disparaît et la finesse est nettement réduite mais l'aspect général est tout de même bien joli. Grâce à du bon travail d'optimisation, le brouillard cachant l'horizon a été repoussé à l'extrême limite de la machine et aucune gêne n'est présente lors des déplacements. Peu de ralentissements, un clipping tout à fait honorable et assez d'effets lumineux et de petits détails (les feuilles qui volettent partout son toujours là :) pour donner un rendu très correct.
Un jeu varié qui mélange les genres c'est toujours intéressant. Dommage que la réalisation technique ne suive pas et que la jouabilité ne soit pas au rendez-vous.
Mucky Foot and Eidos should be congratulated doing something that nobody else has done in a videogame -- starred an African American woman as the lead character. Hooray, somebody is thinking. She's tough, she's slim, built with muscles, smart, and she can fight as good as any of the guys. As for the game, well, poor D'arci could have found herself a better game to appear in. Urban Chaos takes a lot of elements from other games and cobbles them into a 3D beat-'em-up with limited success. I wouldn't recommend buying this game, but on the other hand, some of the gameplay -- discovering the city by jumping from building to building and getting into gang fights -- is worth checking out. The other weaker aspects -- the frame rates, the camera angles, the graphics, and the generally bad implementation of the fighting -- just don't buttress the core of the game to high levels of pleasure.

Eidos has some decent games under their belt, but you have to wonder why they would taint their reputation with a game like this. Everything about this game is just WRONG. Suddenly, Eidos looks more like Acclaim back in their 16-bit days. Can you imagine working for the marketing department and trying to make this game look appealing to a consumer?
The PC version of Urban Chaos really had a lot going for it, and at its core, it was already a very console-style game. However, Eidos simply chose the wrong console, as the PlayStation version of Urban Chaos is ugly and almost completely unplayable. If you've got a PC capable of playing the original version, check it out, and try to forget that the PlayStation version even exists.
