Unfortunately, the most immediately striking thing about Urban Chaos isn't its deep gameplay, its unsettling enemies or even the fact that it actually makes you feel like a hero who helps people, instead of just a trigger-puller. No, it's that the graphics are downright hideous. There's a lot of detail crammed into certain parts of the game - backdraft explosions are awesome-looking as well as deadly, the riot shield shows persistent, realistic-looking damage and the slow-motion hostage situations are just cool. But that doesn't soften the blocky characters, drab textures and rough-looking environments. Even on the Xbox, the visuals don't look much better than they do in the grainy PS2 version.
