Karateka PlayStation 3 Review - Gamer Chatter

Every gamer has a game that started their love of the hobby. For me, when I was in my early teens playing games on the Commodore 64 there was one game that was almost impossible to beat, Karateka. Eventually I did finally finish the game and rescue Mariko, the protagonists true love. This left an impression on me for a long time. I do have to say that when I saw this on the PSN Store I was floored. As I had thought not too long ago about a remake of this game and along come Jordan Mechner to update/remake his original Apple II game.You play as 1 of 3 suitors, True Love, The Monk and The Brute. This gives you 3 chances to make it through the whole game. You gain points by defeating the guards along the way. Ideally you want to make it to Mariko as her True Love, (Karateka, PS3, Retro) 8.5/10
