    The GBA sequel is nearly identical in gameplay as the original title. There's just "more" this year, which definitely works to the game's advantage.

    A strong mix of character maintenance tasks and story-related missions make the GBA's The Urbz an engaging play. [Jan 2005, p.141]
  3. The game's mundane subject matter sometimes overwhelms the experience, since having to frequently rest, shower, and relieve yourself in the game is about as much fun as it sounds. But The Urbz nevertheless provides some surprising depth and lasting value.
