IGN:With more time, money, and effort, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 could have been an entertaining, if basic brawler. You hear the mantra of “good concept, poor execution” with nearly absurd frequency these days. Ken's Rage 2 doesn't just exhibit poor execution, but poor understanding of what it's attempting to accomplish. Simple does not have to mean shallow, but that's precisely what it boils down to here. It truly is a sad day when you start with a character known for punching people so hard they spontaneously explode, and you manage to end up with something that's not only bad, but boring.
