Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2

Total Xbox
1 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Let’s face it — the original Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage was weak even for a game in Koei’s well-worn Dynasty Warriors formula, disappointing many fans of the violent post-apocalyptic manga classic it was based on. So it’s encouraging to see the drastic improvements in Ken’s Rage 2 . For starters, the game moves at a much faster pace, with its predecessor’s jumping (and accompanying obnoxious platforming) scuttled in favor of quick runs and a dash-dodge maneuver.
  • Pros: + Covers much more of the original manga story than the first game, with much better movement and combat controls., + Enough extra content, missions, and characters to keep you playing for ages.
  • Cons: ? Where’d all the gangs get those shoulder pads? From what remains of Sports Authority?

  • Conclusion: It's extremely difficult to recommend Ken's Rage 2 to anyone. Even hardcore fans will struggle to grasp any enjoyment from this disappointing furore into a licence that holds great potential. Tecmo Koei have tried to be sneaky with this one, but we're not fooled. The company's repackaging of Ken's original outing amounts to nothing more than an ugly twin brother. Unfortunately, this sibling was obviously punched lots at birth.

Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 review

14 February 2013
  • Conclusion: In summary dear beloved reader (more so for reading this far) Ken’s Rage 2 is perfect for Dynasty Warriors fans that can see through all the games flaws and see the potential reward in attaining full stats for your character. Casual gamers and those curious of the Anime, stay away. It won’t frustrate you per se, merely make you question yourself constantly whether you have been reliving the same five minutes over and over and over.
  • Pros: Loads of blood. Lots of head explosions.
  • Cons: Broken record style gameplay. For the first two hours, only one button is needed.

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 - Review

GAME Group plc
14 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Although most gamers will be familiar with popular animé characters like Goku, Tetsuo and Naruto of Dragon Ball Z , Akira and (surprisingly enough) Naruto fame, Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star has to rank as one of the most brutally badass creations in the history of Japanese manga.
  • Pros: Over 20 North Star characters, Fighting styles feel more varied, The whole unbroken story
  • Cons: The combat isn't very challenging, We miss the two player co-op, The missions are all very similar

Test : Ken le Survivant : Fist of the North Star sur Xbox 360

XBOX MAG
7 February 2014
  • Summary: L'arrivée d'une adaptation vidéoludique des aventures de l'homme aux sept cicatrices a toujours quelque chose de particulier. Entre nostalgie et crainte de voir une nouvelle fois ce prestigieux nom se fendre d'une production morte avant de le savoir, c'est les mains moites et le corps tremblotant que l'on se lance dans Fist of the North Star : Ken's rage.
  • Pros: Certains personnages intéressants à incarner, Le mode Fiction pour les amateurs de Dynasty Warriors et assimilés, Les voix japonaises, Bonne durée de vie, Respect du scénario
  • Cons: Ce qui n'est absolument pas le cas pour Kenshirô, Rythme trop lent et haché, Palette de coups limitée, Trop peu d'ennemis, Manque de moments épiques

Test : Fist of the North Star Ken's Rage 2 (PS3)

Gamekult.com
4 August 2013
  • Summary: Sans être la roquette qui nous rapprocherait de la Grande Ourse, Fist of the North Star : Ken's Rage 2 a au moins la décence de corriger le tir après un premier épisode bien naze. Mieux construit, mieux rythmé, plus riche, le beat'em all de Koei se maintient au niveau de flottaison, à condition d'être fan et de savoir à quoi s'attendre.
  • Pros: Toute l'histoire est couverte, Pas mal de personnages inédits, Les voix japonaises d'office, Ken enfin sympa à jouer, Enorme durée de vie
  • Cons: Conceptuellement répétitif, Toujours aussi hideux, Les cut-scenes statiques, L'IA en carton, Système d'évolution moins bien pensé

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2

Everyeye Network
2 June 2013
  • Summary: Quella di Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 è una produzione con troppe ombre per uscire dalla mediocrità in cui ancora giace il suo predecessore. Bisogna però dare atto al dev team di aver lavorato in maniera interessante su alcuni aspetti del gameplay e della struttura ludica. Questi elementi si scontrano purtroppo con lo scarso coraggio nel distaccarsi dalle caratteristiche meno amate del Musou, e renderlo così più interessante come ha recentemente saputo fare One...

  • Summary: The Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 – это нишевой продукт, сделавший серьезный шаг на встречу фанатам благодаря развитию персонажей, подаче сюжета, обновленной графике и боевой механике, но так и оставшийся игрой из мира царствования PlayStation 2 .
