If you are looking for Hokuto no Ken nostalgia, then you can safely skip this game. That interactive CG movie action game on the PS1 was way better in this regard. In this game a lot of the famous scenes are re-enacted poorly. The voice acting of the JP version was not that good. I know most of the original TV cast are either dead or in their 70s, but they could at least used the new cast from the movies. No idea how it will work out for the English release. If you are after a Hokuto themed action game to kick some post apocalyptic thug ass then this one is reasonably good.

This game is indeed rage inducing if you are playing as Kenshiro. Makes you think "WTF?! Is that guy on the screen really the Hokuto Shinken Denshousha Kenshiro? He's so WEAK".
Compared to other playable characters, Kenshiro lacks economical AOE attacks to effectively deal with the swarms of thugs. So you end up doing taunt => fly kick => taunt... rinse and repeat. However Kenshiro is truely fearsome for 1 on 1 boss fights since he has infinite loops.
Personally I find playing as Raoh or Rei very enjoyable, and Jagi-sama's illusion story mode is hilarious. Also the Heart-sama DLC was probably the best 800 yen I've ever spent.

Should I get this game or not? I am a fan of FOTNS but... if you guys are saying it's not that good, well I am gonna skip this game. I like my fellow gamers point of view on games rather than publications and internet websites views. Gamers 1st...


Download the demo and make up your own mind.
