* ItsUpToYou: Justifed. Most of the Characters that aren't trying to stab, chop, burn or shoot you are civilians, firemen or paramedics. People that don't have training for combat situations. Not to say that the regular cops can't hold their own, it's just that you have all the fancy training, equipment, and reckless disregard for your own life.

''Urban Chaos: Riot Response'' is a FirstPersonShooter developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos Interactive for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 and the UsefulNotes/XBox. It's Rocksteady's first game prior to hitting it big with ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum''. It is generally well-received for having simple and enjoyable gameplay, moderate difficulty, expansive content, and strong multi-player.

In it, an unnamed American city has been turned into a war zone by crazy terrorists known as the Burners. You play Nick Mason, ace of the T-Zero Riot Response unit, which was formed to fight terrorists and take the city back.

Don't confuse this game with 1999 3rd person shooter ''VideoGame/UrbanChaos'' (even though Eidos published both).

An unnamed American city has been turned into a warzone by crazy terrorists known as the Burners. You play Nick Mason, ace of the T-Zero Riot Response unit, which was formed to fight terrorists and take the city back.

''Urban Chaos: Riot Response'' is a FirstPersonShooter made by Rocksteady (before they hit it big with ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'') and published by Eidos Interactive for the {{Playstation 2}} and the XBox. It is generally well-received, having simple and enjoyable gameplay, moderate difficulty, expansive content and strong multi-player. The few strikes against it could be attributed to sub-par graphics, rather linear levels and [[{{Narm}} very campy dialogue]].

This doesn't come anywhere near the level of the more well-known shooters like {{Halo}}, or even {{Killzone}}, but this one stands on its own by doing away with realism and story, instead giving you a ton of weapons and hordes of enemies to use them on. [[CatharsisFactor Think of it as stress-release]].

Justified - T-ZERO's very existence is extremely controversial, not to mention its actions (total war against criminal hotspots, ''blowing up an abandoned city block with attack choppers to destroy a Burner stronghold'', and so on.)

* ClothesMakeTheSuperman - Nick Mason. All of his equipment is what makes him better then the regular cops. [[spoiler: Subverted in the last level. The Burners think this trope is true and ambush Nick while off duty. He then grabs some weapons and a shield off the Burners and murders their leader.]]
** Could be considered to be a PlayedWith trope. Although it is true that Nick's training and experience help, his gear certainly played a significant role. [[spoiler: During said ambush, Nick survives not just on his own training, but also with [[HoistByHisOwnPetard the Burner equivalents to his own T-Zero SWAT gear]] ]]
