Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 review | Thunderbolt

James Dewitt, Thunderbolt writes:
Hard as it might be to believe, the Fist of the North Star series has endured in popularity for over thirty years thanks to its unabashed usage of gore and other endearingly cheesy qualities. Like most titles based off beloved mangas and animes, its videogame adaptations have always missed the mark with the most recent misstep being Ken’s Rage as it tried to fit the material into the tired Dynasty Warriors mold. Ken’s Rage 2 is a more sincere effort that, while clinging to that particular style of gameplay, still attempts to adapt the material into a respectable brawler. (Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2, Xbox 360) 6/10
