(Review of PS1 version)
Urban Chaos is an insult to the black community, not because it panders to the black community
with potentially stereotypical (but not negative) characters, but because the game really, really
Then again, does a game with black characters have to be put under a microscope for how it
reflects its audience? Well, I'm not the one to answer that question, but my point is that, if a
black person buys this game because it's like the silicon version of Shaft, and then the game
turns out to be crap, it kind of sends a message that, hey, we're exploiting the black audience.
We'll spend more money for those white-bitch Lara games, but for D'arci, let's just crank it out,
crank it out, crank it out.
Gee, I think I'm reading too much into this. Well, you be the judge. The bottom line is that the
controls are messy, and the mandatory fights are as enjoyable as stabbing your testicles. If you
set foot anywhere near some enemies, you will be locked into an endless, worthless brawl that
often ends in your death. This game is just not fun.
