All Star Karate

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The first thing I should get out of the way is All Star Karate will not teach you karate. The characters do perform karate moves, and they look really good. What you the player do is not exactly the same thing. You can however get a nice little work out while playing this Wii game.

All Star Karate Review

  • Conclusion: Creating a worthwhile karate or martial arts sim on the Wii would have been a great idea, but unfortunately, all you can expect from All Star Karate is a bunch of waggling of your hands and shaking of your head.

All Star Karate - Wii

27 May 2010
  • Conclusion: You're also able to choose either a male or female karate novice who gets attacked by a random group of ninjas while on route to a movie theatre. After scaring away the ninjas with your frantic Wii Remote flailing, you attract the attention of a karate master who takes it on himself to train you in...

  • Excerpt: As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him a duck. Turns out, you can't make a fighting game out of All Star Karate, either.

All Star Karate Review

28 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: All Star Karate may shine when it comes to technology such as Kinect, as this will hopefully give the game far more scope than the limitations placed by the Wiimotes. It offers sluggish and random controls which affect multiplayer and make the game more frustrating than fun.
  • Pros: Faintly charming, You’ll get some sweat going and some good content depth for those who persevere, Great for kids
  • Cons: Sluggish controls that render multiplayer unplayable, Weak storyline (unless you like that sort of thing), Picky timing issues

Expert Review

17 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Sorgte bereits "All Star Cheerleading" nicht gerade für Jubellaune bei Wii-Besitzern, verkommt der neueste "Karate"-Ableger von THQs Mitmach-Reihe zu einer langweiligen, fad inszenierten Fummelei, die zweifelsohne zu den Tiefpunkten in der Wii-Geschichte gezählt werden darf.

All Star Karate (Wii)

23 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Historien i spillet er måske ikke den største overraskelse. Du skal nemlig som en ung gut, eller gutinde for den sags skyld, opnå det sorte bælte. Det overraskende er så til gengæld, at din karakter ikke lige havde intention om det fra start af, da han/hun intet karate kan, men dette ændrer sig ved...
