Urban Chaos

Description official descriptions

As the 2nd millennium ends, the cities are over-ran with Apocalyptic violence. Is this down to urban frustrations, or a sinister cult controlling everybody? You are either cop D'Arcy Stern or former soldier Roper McIntyre, and have to find the answers, but more importantly put a stop to the carnage.

This involves a succession of action-packed non-linear missions. The environment incorporates shadows, rain, fog and a day/night cycle. Police cars, motorcycles and ambulances must be controlled during some missions. There are many ways to 'settle' the enemies - car chases, hand-to-hand combats and action movie-style shoot outs for example.

Cancelled Sequels

Development company Mucky Foot had signed a sequel to Urban Chaos with Eidos, but they could not agree on the course of the game and the design document was rejected three times before Mucky Foot gave up. They believe Eidos was never interested in a sequel, but eventually the name was used again for this Rocksteady title, although both titles bear no resemblance.

Gameplay Change

Urban Chaos was originally conceived as a Double Dragon-style game, with the environment-as-weapon flourishes of a Jackie Chan movie, but at the last moment, it was pitched to Eidos as an open-world-combat-driving-everything game.


As of April 2008, according to the developers, about half a million copies of the game were sold (platforms not specified).
