Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage was a great game, at least if you liked the Dynasty Warriors series and had an affection for the punch-happy manga upon which it was based. Kenshiro's post-apocalyptic wanderings worked remarkably well with the brawling, one-against-all gameplay Koei is famous for. Koei is also famous for masses of sequels, and a follow-up was inevitable.

  • Summary: Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 is basically the first game with some subtle changes. If the first go was enjoyable, then the second one will be the same. If not, there's nothing missed by passing it by.
  • Pros: Authenticity to the series is exemplary, Visually impressive battles
  • Cons: Repetition, repetition, repetition, Lack of variety in game modes

  • Excerpt: Tecmo Koei once had its place among the most respected developers and publishers in the gaming industry with some of the best fighting games around in the Dead or Alive series, a great new action series in Ninja Gaiden and plenty of other fun releases such as the Dynasty Warriors series.

  • Excerpt: Hard as it might be to believe, the Fist of the North Star series has endured in popularity for over thirty years thanks to its unabashed usage of gore and other endearingly cheesy qualities. Like most titles based off beloved mangas and animes, its videogame adaptations have always missed the mark with the most recent misstep being Ken’s Rage as it tried to fit the material into the tired Dynasty Warrior s mold.

  • Excerpt: Is the series already dead? As the resident Dynasty Warriors expert, a title I wear with pride and shame, I reviewed the original Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage and deemed it as one of the best games to be influenced by the series. It took the basic Dynasty Warriors premise of beating hundreds upon hundreds of enemies into a bloody pulp and made the combat deliberately grounded.

  • Conclusion: The audience for this game is clear: fans of the manga/anime, the first game, or maybe Dynasty Warriors should definitely check this out. I think those folks will be able to more easily overlook the game's flaws. For everyone else, you could do worse with your money and time, and if you do try it, give it a few hours to grow on you before you cast it aside.

  • Summary: Koei's sequel challenges the meaning of "sequel" itself in this eerily familiar follow-up.
