User reviews for Urban Reign
6.2 / 10Combined Score
No multiplayer Story Mode, repitive gameplay, incredibly difficult
Urban Reign takes you through a storyline that puts you into the shoes of Brad Hawk, as you attempt to clean up the streets by stopping the gang wars and destruction. While the storyline is somewhat interesting at times it doesn't really matter, as in any beatem up you find that your only objective is to beat down enemy after enemy.
The game employs a very good combat system that lets you do more than your average punch kick and throw. You can also reverse grapples and strikes as well as hit multiple enemies at the same time and do various special attacks that you learn throughout the game. The fighting may seem boring at first, but one you get farther into the game, and get better at the game you'll notice that the fighting scenes can actually be a blast to play as well as watch, and you'll see something new each time.
