Summary: All in all K-1 ends up being mostly
fun but quite a ways from memorable or remarkable. While better than a
lot of the other realistic fighters we've seen lately it is still lacking
in too many areas to be any kind of long-term contender.
Pros: Good counter system and deep controls…
Cons: Which, unfortunately, are slow to respond and feel lagged out. Also sorely lacking in the graphics department.
Excerpt: While it's not the most detailed fighter out there, K-1 World Grand Prix isn't all that hard on the eyes. The combatants are nicely detailed and resemble their real life counterparts well. There isn't much else out there to look at though.
Excerpt: “K-1 World Grand Prix” is the latest entry into the fighting market; aimed more towards the sporting side as opposed to the outlandish side. Konami has taken the actual K1 circuit and given the gamer 20 actual fighters to choose from.
