Urban Chaos (VG, 1999)
23 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

This is a very good action game from late 1999. As suggested, the graphics aren't the best (let's consider though that it was made in 1999), and the storyline might border on supernatural, but it is really fun to play. You play most of the game as D'Arci, a rookie cop cleaning up the streets of Union City, a city loosely based on New York, at the turn of the millennium (1999/2000). You play a few stages as 'Roper' - a retired bomb squad expert and vigilante who comes in handy at times. He's not as fast on the beat as D'Arci, but he's much stronger. It's a typical cop game, you solve murders, crack cases, arrest a lot of wildcats (the local street gang), try to find evidence, and talk to witnesses for clues.

Of course, this all leads to the big picture, a corrupt mayoral candidate who wants non other than to make Union City his own. It also contains a very unique twist at the end of the game. There is nothing too special about it, but it has fun gameplay, is enjoyable, and at times can be humorous with the various quotes in the game.

For it's time, the gloomy streets, dark alleyways, fog, puddles, rain and mystic music all make the atmosphere of this game very impressive. I find this game would've been a great seller back when it was released (99/2000) had it been marketed better, but I still rate it very highly as I was lucky enough to come across it.

10/10
