Karateka Review - GameInformer

"Simple and straightforward isn’t bad. I imagine some variation of that principle governed Jordan Mechner and the team at Liquid Entertainment as they built the reimagined Karateka. The original Karateka released in 1984, and starred a heroic karate fighter on his way to save Princess Mariko from Akuma’s mountaintop fortress. Players performed timing-based punches and kicks to fight their way to victory. This remake doesn’t diverge from that formula, and the result is a game that feels more simplistic than most modern releases – though it remains relevant through high production values and a smart approach to replay.", writes GameInformer. (Karateka, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 8/10
