Urban Terror was first released in 1998 and this first person shooter game has received awards for its great game play and storyline. Has time been kind to the game or is it simply too dated to enjoy? Read on to find out.
Urban Terror invited players to explore a realistically created city setting in search of danger and adventure. Fortunately, the realism comes to a hold at the environments and the game provides plenty of crazy touches to make it exciting and diverse. The game is presented with a short tutorial at the start that comes in the form of a video and spells out the basic story as well as showing players how to use the controls.
Fortunately, the tutorial is over fairly quickly and the controls are fairly easy to get to grips with. Players are presented with a few special moves that can be a lot of fun such as jumping over walls, crouching power slides and strafe jumping. As you would expect, the graphics are a bit dated, but they still manage to display the gaming world very well and add a sense of atmosphere and mood to the game that matches the style of Urban Terror well.
Players have a large selection of different weapons to choose from and getting to know how each of the weapons handles is an interesting part of the game. All of the most popular weapons of choice are represented here, from automatic rifles to grenade launchers that really pack a punch. Watching the grenades sail through the air towards their intended target can be strangely satisfying.
Players also come up against a range of different types of assailants that are sure to make sure you keep looking over your shoulder. The snipers are particularly skilled and the attack sometimes seems to come out of nowhere, cutting you down just when you are ready to move onto the next stage.
Despite the fact that Urban Decade is nearly two decades old, it still feels surprisingly fresh and engaging. The game plays very smoothly and the controls are easy to use. There is lots od action to keep gamers on their toes and the wide range of options that players are presented with keep the game feeling exciting even after playing for several hours.
