Conclusion: From the makers of Mortal Combat, Tao Feng Fist of the Lotus is a very simple fighting game. Fluent martial arts moves combinded with good graphics and sound which makes this a good beat em up game. The Storyline is very basic good vs evil with some interesting characters with good combinations and moves.
Summary: There is alot of good points to this than most of you are naming. First I love the diffuculty in preforming combos as it makes you feel like you are experiencing the diffuculty the fighters have when they had to learn it. Also I take Kenpo/Karate and believe me that combos are the only way to go, why bother for a game that involves 1 or 2 hits when you can do combos.
Summary: Previous reviews on the game kept me from purchsing this game. Unsuspectedly, I received it as a gift this x-mas, and it is better than I thought it would be. The only thing is that the voices sound weird, but not the music, the music is good it is the voices of the characters which sound echoed and like they are coming thourgh a metal tube. Other than that it is pretty decent game.
Summary: this one is so much fun. i guess im not a geek who sits around all day fantasiing about fake cartoon girls and is upsessed with combos and specials but.... i lovedt his game. the characters look great the are some of the best i have seen. multiplayer is such a blast and one player is actually fun. the challenge is there but welcome. the one player campaign doesnt feel like homework and the levels are truly awesome.
Summary: The learning curve for this game is extraordinarily steep. Pressing the joystick forwards and a punching is different than standing still and punching or pressing backwards and punching. The combos are somewhat canned, though you can change them up a bit. FIghting against the computer isn't very fun--the computer is either very easy (just stands around) or impossible (combo after combo after combo, never missing a beat). Definitely room for improvement in the 1P game.
Summary: The graphics for the game are terrific. The characters move fluidly during combat while executing various moves. However the general set of moves becomes old after you play for awhile. Once you find a couple of combos you just sit back and wait to unleash them. I like the Chi method for awarding special attacks. More characters would add a bonus as there are not enough in the game. Also, the mature rating must be for the physical violence.
Summary: I do remember having this game when i had my X Box. The whole idea about the game was fantastic! everything was perfect apart from a few minor flaws. There just wasnt enough of it! only really a few characters with no over amazing special moves and with limited levels the game play wasnt amazing. But it was one of those games that you can pick up with those big chunky kevlar controlers and smash to peices.
Summary: *** I bought this earlier this year and paid a tenner for it and it's OK. Not the best game we have, but not the worst either. Well worth the tenner and at that it was a good buy, but it is hard to say if we'd have paid much more. A good addition to your collection if you can get it at a good price.
