not Dynasty Warriors

I got excited for this game when I heard it was similar to Dynasty Warriors only to be disappointed. This game moves at a much slower pace than Dynasty Warriors and the large pack of enemies only serve as an annoyance rather than a fun slaughter fest. Since you only use your fists which have little range there are only a very limited amount of combos that you will actually find useful for dealing with crowds. I put in about ten hours of this game before sending it back and I used the same combo XXYY pretty much 99% of the time because I didn't want to go around punching each enemy three times.

Fist of the North Star is an interesting game; it's 'sold' as somewhat tongue and cheek but the game seems to take itself quite seriously. This is not, however, not what makes this game less than great; the game lacks range, not in gameplay but literal, attack range. The game is constantly throwing semi-large groups of enemies at you but gives you a limited range based on the characters arms instead of weapons like similar games in the genre (i.e. Dynasty Warriors). It's this 'feature' that makes the game a bit tedious as you kind of have to hit and kill each enemy specifically to move on instead of being able to do one sweeping attack to take out several.

Other than that the game is okay, pretty much hack and slash action but the story seems to be decently interesting.

Fist of the North Star is like many of the games in it's genre but doesn't have the greatest execution among them; you may find Ken's Rage to be fun but there could be other similar games you'd probably like more.

This game isn't exactly bad it just could have been better. if you are A fan of the fist of the north star universe then you should rent it or if you enjoy dynasty warrior games.
