  • Excerpt: Look, I'm not about to lie to anyone - I know little to nothing about the source material for Koei Tecmo's new platformer, beat ‘em up Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage . After playing it, I'm still not sure - I just know there's a lot of gruesome killing...by fingertips.

  • Conclusion: Out of the numerous North Star games in existence there are two which standout. The first is the Fighting Mania arcade game from Konami which asks players to punch six illuminated pads with rubbery boxing mitts, and the second is the 2D fighter created by Arc System Works for the Atomiswave.
