IGN: International Karate Review

International Karate was a good pick for the Commodore 64's American launch lineup, because even after 20 years it's still a title with a good degree of name recognition among gamers from the '80s. Much of that recognition, though, probably came from this game's superior sequel -- the imminent arrival of which is a strong reason why you might not want to get this edition right away. Existence of the upcoming sequel aside, though, the original International Karate is fun and even addictive. So nostalgic Commodore players and younger gamers who think they might like a slower, more purposeful and more strategic fighting design should still give it a look.
