best FotNS game I've played which isn't saying much.

  • Summary: Fist of the North Star has a long held tradition of being turned into awful video games for your home console. The best ones that have come to America were renamed and altered. Last Battle for the Sega Genesis and Black Belt for the SMS are secretly Fist of the North Star games. The other games on the NES and Gameboy that remained FotNS in America were genuinely bad.

Fun, but not great?

  • Summary: Basically how I saw this game was this: Dynasty Warriors with Martial Arts. Now I know this game is LOOSELY based on the Manga and I know people will probably whine and complain that "it's not this" or "it should be this way". But if you're just looking for some beat 'em up fun, you'll find it. There's plenty of game to play. Perhaps even too much. There a lots of levels, although they begin to look similar, and multiple modes to play as well.

At sub $20, worth the price, any higher price and it isn't worth it

  • Summary: To clarify my review title, if you are a fan of Fist of the North Star, as I am, you probably don't care that the game isn't a technical masterpiece and just want to play it. For those who are diehard fans, you would likely give it 5 stars even with the faults. FotNS: Ken's Rage is a game from Koei/Tecmo based on the same engine used for current generation Dynasty Warriors games (including DW: Gundam games).

Not great, but not bad if you feel like gambling with a new game.

  • Summary: I usually stick to games I have done a lot of research on to avoid disappointment. But, at the store's game rack I felt like a gamble on a type of game I usually don't go for. This game offers some decent, yet repetative, fighting through endless waves of minions, and some challenging level boss'. The standard moves are the definition of "button mashing" X,X,X or Y,Y,Y, take your pick, mix it up, etc. The effects on the enemies when you kill them are cool, at first.

  • Excerpt: This review will will help you to consider trying out this game because it is a game well worth playing. Fist of the north star Kens rage or also known as Hokuto no Ken is based on an original japanese manga comic and anime series that came about twenty years ago. For all those who had no knowledge about the history of this franchise, like myself, be at ease you can play this game and understand the plot with no difficulty whatsoever and furthermore if an intrest sparks...
  • Pros: Simple game witha a good story
  • Cons: Sometimes lacks challenge, sometime to much of a challenge

Not as good as i was hoping

A. Brookes, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Difficult title to review as the game does have its good points but it still gets pretty boring. The gameplay feels very slow which is a shame because the story is half decent and with the excellent character game this game could have been so much better.

Bien mais peu mieux faire

C. Couturier "Toff le fan de Sf", amazon.co.uk
17 February 2011
  • Summary: Le jeu est sympa graphiquement, on se sent vraiment dans un monde post-apocalyptique, Le jeu est sanglant a souhait est le mode histoire est assez fidèle, se qui rend le jeu très fun a joué. Mais si qui est très énervant, c'est que certains personnage sont mou. Le pire est kenshiro, le perso principal qui est d'une lenteur inadmissible pour un jeu où le but est le pétage de gueule de masse a toute vitesse.

  • Summary: Un jeu pour les fans de la série... Fidèle au manga. On reprochera cependant des lourdeurs dans le gameplay et des graphismes souvent en dessous du potentiel de la machine...
