    Those are this month's Club Nintendo rewards games.

    Pictobits seems to get fairly decent reviews, but Urban Champion gets severely panned pretty much across the board. Pity. I would have preferred the 3D Classics Kirby.

    Your thoughts?

    Pictobits is thoroughly winning video game software. ^_^
    This is the second time I've bought it even though some of the colors remind me how colorblind I am. : \

    3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure was on CN another month IIRC. Not sure.

    Got 3D Classics: Urban Champion though (On CN), and it's not that bad of a game at all. Sure, it's not extremely advanced, but it's still fun, and the 3D is nice.

    Pretty sure it wasn't a rewards game you can get with coins. I'd have snatched it up immediately if it had been.

    It was the gameboy version of kirby that was offered on club nintendo.

    I'm looking forward to know more about urban champion. By looking on youtube, it looks boring, but I could be wrong. If any of you gets the game, please, give us a quick review :)

    IGN gave it a 2.5/10: http://ds.ign.com/articles/118/1189110p1.html

    Metacritic composite is 37/100: http://www.metacritic.com/game/3ds/3d-classics-urban-champion/critic-reviews

    Seems like one to take a pass on.

    If you are looking for anything in depth regarding Urban Champion's gameplay, look elsewhere. It's a mindless brawler that even Bad Dudes is a step above.

    If you have the coins to burn, you might as well. After you've gotten Pictobits, that is. If Urban Champion hadn't been a real game, I would have assumed it was just a 3D tech demo.

    I also got Urban Champion...it's a little crappy.. I can't think of a person that would purchase this game.. (the 3D is nice but not *that* nice...).
    the gameplay is too simple...low punch when he defenses up, high punch when he defenses low.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Nintendo should be paying us coins to download urban champion, lol

    I keep saving all my points for something good, but then I just end up buying the stuff I want from eshop anyways. So something good does happen ill probably already have it.

    I'm sort of tempted to get Urban Champion just because it's in 3D.
    I'll be slightly upset if 3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure comes on CN because I already bought it.

    I remember playing urban champion on nes.
    Bad, bad choice for 3d classic. Hell, it's not even a classic in any sense other than being old imo.

    :(

    Already own Pictobits, which is a great game, by the way, though I'm no good at it. UC, though? Ugh...guess I'll still be holding onto my points again this month.

    I used some of my coins that have just been sitting there and got Urban Champion and boy is it cheesy. I love old games, but Urban Champion has to be one of the worse ever.

    Just downloaded Pictobits, and I can say it's worth the 150 coins :)

    Oh boy..~
    I was waiting for Urban Champion to show up in the free shit category; so I guess what I'll do (Even though I've got the coins) is get Urban Champion for free, and buy Pictobits. May as well give them something; I wouldn't give more than five cents for Urban Champion. xD

    But if they come along with Balloon Fight, I'd be all "Shut up and take my money!"
