Karateka Review - Midlife Gamer

craigieh says:"Jordan Mechner, the creator of the classic Prince of Persia series, has returned to his first game as inspiration for his latest. Karateka is an HD remake of an old Apple 2 game, of which I have no memory or experience, but one which is held in high regard.

It starts off with an eastern vibe, with Japanese string and wind instruments playing over a thickly drawn traditional temple on a simple start screen. It is a nicely calm introduction, and upon pressing the start button, you are greeted with a text scroll introduction. The story goes that you are the hero, The True Love of a princess named Mariko kidnapped by the evil warlord Akuma, and it is up to you to reach and rescue her." (Karateka, Xbox 360) 5/10
