Summary: We bought this used to save some money and everything was as promised. The disc was clean no scratches and works perfectly! We received it in 3 days which was a huge plus and my husband couldn't be happier with the game the only complaint so far from him are the combos on the game!
Summary: It was back in 1988, at a New York comic book convention where I first saw the japanese trailer of the original Fist Of The North Star movie. Heads exploding, dudes chopped into piscasso art, dazziling motion effects... it blew my 12 year old mind. I remember thinking that it was a Double Dragon movie but the guy running the trailers, said thats that Fist Of The North Star. Been a loyal follower ever since. Enough fanboy talk, time for a review.
Summary: If you played the first FOTNS mousou game, you're probably asking yourself - "should I buy this game?" The answer to that is a resounding YES! But if you're new to the series - should you give this a try? As a fan of FOTNS I say - yes, but only because the Kenshiro universe is so compelling and this is a great way to really enjoy the complete story of Hokuto No Ken on a console (the last game only featured about half the manga's timeline).
I played the first & i heard this one expanded the story...

Summary: the BEST part of this game is that they really show a LOT more story. I only know the series from the movie anime. so i was WOW!!! watching/playing thru the new story. the goons & mini bosses are repetitive BUT if you get a good rank you get better scrolls. the bosses were all pretty good. some more creative than others.
Summary: Ok, first I have to say I'm a huge fan of Fist of the North Star franchise, I played Ken's Rage and it was very nice. This game has some pros and cons, the Legend mode is very good and accurate to the manga (basically it is the entire fist game + new missions and the second part of the anime which is great). Legend mode is not very fluent though, because of the high amount of "cinematic panels" shown every 3 mins (even during a boss fight, several time).
Summary: For people who hate the Dynasty Warriors games and what they offer, you should navigate away from this page now, this game is not for you. This review is from the perspective who is a fan of Hokuto no Ken but more importantly a fan of Dynasty Warriors. This game recycles assets and offers a similar experience to the first Hokuto Musou, but a host of improvements to the core gameplay and the game's structure make it a worthwhile purchase for those who enjoyed the first...
Summary: Very similar to the original, with revamped graphics, a different level up system which in my opinion, it's too convoluted. No jump button unless prompted on screen. Dodge/dash technique that must be used especially in boss battles. Legend mode is quite faithful to the manga/anime. Lot's of dialog from Kenshiro ( so far) and cutscenes are a mix of motion video and slides with voice over and some effects ( sounds lame but is pretty well done).
AAAAAHTADADADADADADADADAAAAH!! You are all ready dead.... again!

Summary: Like any good sequel - it should feel familiar yet different. Building upon the original structure to improve and refine. That statement sums up this game perfectly! Fighting: The major part of the game needs to hold-up as boy, there sure is a lot of fighting hahahahaah! Thankfully, the combat has improved, managing to be fast, fluid and satisfying. It consists of combining light and heavy attacks to create combos which you can now link special moves into.
