Riot City is a good representative of the genre, although nothing special stands out. Here you are given a choice of two characters: the blond Paul - the standard of the genre, and the slower, but stronger dark-skinned breakdancer Bobby. These two tough guys are DEA agents. The investigation led them to the criminal organization "M.I.D.", whose refuge was a dilapidated city on the island, where, apparently, all psychopaths, murderers and all sorts of dark personalities gathered. But the point is also that MID also has a lot of its agents and they do not receive money in vain. So, Paul's girlfriend was kidnapped and is now somewhere in the "rebellious" city. And now Paul and Bobby have two tasks: to save a girl named Katherine and destroy MID. And for this you have to visit the most terrible and dangerous areas of this city.

The game is well designed graphically, as befits representatives of the genre. The proper atmosphere is sustained, one might say, perfectly. There are few blows, but the monotony of the combat system is not particularly annoying and annoying, nevertheless, the dynamism of the action is present and does not let you get bored. There is also the possibility of playing together.
