Karate Champ for the NES is based on the arcade hit from 1984 and one of the first classic 1vs.1 fighting games on the NES. Too bad that the controls and especially the hit detection are rather bad. It felt to me that it is pure luck whether you hit your opponent or not. The game plays different (in a negative sense) than the arcade version. The background graphics have a mixed quality, the animations are unspectacular. On the positive side I could mention the little speech samples when a fight begins. Otherwise I see no real good points in this overall disappointing game.

An attempt to port the arcade game to the NES that fails miserably due to terrible graphics and control.
