Description

Urban Strike is the third in EA's long running series of helicopter action games. An evil genius named H. R. Malone has started a cult and managed to gather millions of followers. Malone is using his influence and wealth to build a super weapon with which he will overthrow the government. You will once again suit up and take control of various types of helicopters to stop Malone's evil scheme.

Urban Strike is the first, and only, game in the Strike series to feature non-vehicular combat. In some levels you will leave your helicopter and proceed on foot.

Trivia

Cutscene

In a cutscene, shown before you begin the New York level, is a scary scene that seemed like it foretold a piece of history. When it starts, Malone's laser beam shoots out a beam and then it hits the south tower of the World Trade Center towers! Scary is that the game's date is 2001, the year of the terrorist attacks!
