My problem with Musou games is that, having played several, I never feel the need to buy a new game at release. So if I'm interested, I wait for a good sale or price-drop.

And when that happens, two new games in the series have come out, usually making the one I initially had my eye on pointless.

Lol yeah sounds about right.

I imported the original Ken's Rage 2 from Japan (Hokuto Musou) as I couldn't be arsed to wait for it to get a PAL release. Decent game but the plus side was when I eventually sold it over a year later I didn't lose any money on it. :D

Eh, what?

Kens Rage is Hokuto Musou.
Kens Rage 2 is Shin Hokuto Musou and not out in Japan...

My bad, it was a typo...notice how I said 'original' and also called it Hokuto Musou rather than Shin Hokuto Musou...christ.

Yeah Ken's Rage was OK, I played through once but it's not the sort of game I'd pay full price for, like Dynasty Warriors, it's a $20 max purchase.

Ken's Rage just feels too slow. It feels like the characters have anchors on there arms and legs. It's not a bad game but I wish it was more like Sengoku Basura 3.

well this one covers season 2 of the anime. I think it pretty much covers all of season 1 too. People wish it played like Sengoku Basara must never saw Hokuto No Ken anime. Ken is a countering master.

I'm currently watching Hokuto No Ken 2 on hulu *hints my avatar*. The game feels really sluggish and would be better if it had the same variety that Sengoku Basara 3 gives to the player. The game gets the signature moves right and that happens to be the best part of the game. Everything between getting the signature moves feels like a chore. I just hope they improved the basic gameplay in Ken's Rage 2.
