If You Love Beat em up Fighting games and Multiplayer Mayhem Then This will Indeed be one of the funnest Games for you. Its a great Game and I think if you have your friends over it would be even more fun! Even if you play by yourself its still fun because there are 100 missions in the game. The only thing that this game is missing is a Co-op Story mode. Even though you can play the challenge with another partner or an AI, It still would have been even better if you able to play with a real partner in in the story. It's Awesome - Collin

...you might want to give Urban Reign a try. Because, that's exactly what this is. A *FIGHTING GAME*. Many official reviews I've read online seem to be missing this crucial fact.

Urban Reign was not meant to be about intricate plotlines like an RPG...or freely roaming cities like Grand Theft Auto...or crazy side-games...or transparent distractions. It's emphasis is on the *FIGHTING*. And, there's a lot of fighting to be had in Urban Reign...after all, this is a tribute to the old beat-em-up days of Final Fight and Streets of Rage.

The best part is that you can get as involved as you want. You can button mash like a zombie if you wish, and I suppose that will get you a certain degree of success. However, if you are interested in going further, you will find a surprising depth typically lacking from the beat-em-up genre. There are special reversals, juggle combos, and (dare I say it?) STRATEGIES you must adopt to ensure victory. If anything, I believe the gameplay in Urban Reign takes this dormant genre in a promising new direction.

The single player experience will keep you busy for a while; unlocking many of the goodies requires you to familiarize yourself with the story mode. A warning: check your ego at the door. Story mode will own you. Period. The 1-on-4 whoopings will be frustrating, so if you fear challenges, steer clear.

However, the multiplayer experience is where the game shines. The action is fast paced and fairly intelligent...if you learn the nuances of the game, it probably won't get boring anytime soon. Especially with the library of characters, moves, and modes. Think Super Smash Brothers, but decidedly less cute...

Or if you don't feel like beating up on your friends, Challenge Mode allows you and a buddy to take on a series of computer controlled teams. It's not quite the co-op story mode we all wish for...but, it's a start...

Bottom line: Urban Reign is a FIGHTING game, first and foremost. All other aspects of the game play minor roles. No massive cities to explore...no intricate tasks to perform...nothing. Nothing but the fighting, that is. And, as fighting games go, it's a pretty dang fun one.
