Review: Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
24 November 2012
  • Summary: : Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior’s Rise borrows some basic ideas from games like River City Ransom and Batman: Arkham City in an attempt to build a complex modern beat-em-up, but the end result is as frustrating as it is fun, and it’s hampered by some less than optimal decisions.
