Côté réalisation, Urban Champion laisse apparaître des personnages au graphisme peu soigné et le décor reste assez morne. Toutefois, ce jeu sait se faire apprécier et les amateurs de combat l'adopteront.

Urban Champion is a Famicom game from the pre-Super Mario Bros. era, and thus released during a time when standards for depth and scope were low. Urban Champion's entire worth as a game is to show just how blah games of that era often could be. There's a two-player mode that's no more fun or interesting than the single-player mode. Maybe you can get together with a friend and laugh at how boring Urban Champion is, but there's basically no reason to play this game beyond nostalgia. Don't bother.

Certainement le jeu le plus niais de la série Nintendo. A n'acheter qu'en cas de manque pour les « accros » du joystick.

I can't really recommend this unless you're really, really, really interested in Nintendo's history. Beat-em-ups have thankfully come an awfully long way since the dark days of Urban Champion and I would go so far as to say that almost any fighting game made in the last 15 fifteen years is more enjoyable then this. Old doesn't always mean gold!

Power Play
Urban Champion ist eine stumpfsinnige Angelegenheit, die zudem weniger vom Können, als eher vom Glück entschieden wird. Es ist mit Abstand das schlechteste Nintendo-Spiel, das ich bis jetzt gesehen habe. Ich würde jedem davon abraten, sich dieses Modul ohne vorheriges Probespielen zuzulegen.

The Video Game Critic
The sheer monotony of trading punches with the other guy is only relieved by the occasional police car driving by, or a lady dropping a flowerpot from a window. It's somewhat comical how the fighters strike innocent poses until the cop passes, but that novelty wears thin in a hurry. Once you push your opponent to the edge of the screen, he'll roll off, letting you progress to the next screen. Urban Champion's backgrounds are uninspired to say the least, with generic storefronts that cycle endlessly. You can duke it out against a friend or the computer, but I strongly recommend you don't. Personally, I prefer to play a game with more depth - like Pong for example.
