Urban Reign a Namco 3D scrolling fighter in the same vein as Spikeout.

Been after this game for absolutely ages only to be disappointed.

Decided to replace my original PS4 with a Pro model. Ordered today, so should arrive in the next day or 2.
Im glad I updated mine, not sure if its because I'm looking for it but does seem better with the PSVR. Forgot to backup all my saves though so everything is gone and have to start again :roll:

It is a weird game. I went in thinking that it would be a scrolling fighter but it really isn't. You need to master the counters and dodges otherwise you quickly get destroyed. Some of the last fights (there are 100 missions) took me absolutely forever to beat for example because there is zero space for error and you have to find a "flow" where you get in the zone.

I really enjoyed it for the challenge alone (I was determined to beat it!) but I don't think I would go through it again.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I thought it was a scrolling fighter but its basically Powerstone with Tekken fight system. I liked how you can attack multiple people at once, or you can double team enemies with power moves.

Urban Reigns has gone in the charity bag, not a game I will be returning to.

It arrived this morning, so I've gone into work and left it to transfer all my data... it estimated 106 minutes... started transferring and changed that estimate to 5 hours...
