  • Summary: On Nintendo DS, Kung Fu Panda 2 will allow players to command Po using the stylus and unleash awesome kung fu moves against enemies alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, the Furious Five: Tigress, Monkey, Crane, Viper and Mantis. In addition, the Nintendo DS version offers an addictive card game called "Five-Card Fu," which can be played either alone or with a friend. The game is played on a 3x3 grid which contains nine squares. To get started, the player must select five cards from their in-game library and place one card in one of the nine squares. Each card will have a number ranging from one through nine on each side of the card. In order to win, the player must strategize on which square they will occupy first as well as which card to use. Once the player places a card in a square, the opponent will have to place a card on an adjacent square that beats the numerical value of the card the first player placed. The player that occupies the grid with the highest numerical value wins. Expand

    Although Kung Fu Panda 2 is a nice breeze of fresh air for the widely overlooked genre of the turned-based RPGs, the top dogs such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy don't have anything to fear.

    It's surprisingly well made and it's nice to see that the developers have put a bit of effort into putting it together, but the big problem is that it's too easy by half. [July 2011, p.70]

    The Five Card Fu mini-game is a nice addition, but you don't get to play it enough to keep the game interesting throughout the story.

    Only the most fervent Panda fans will bother dawdling through this sluggish RPG-inspired journey. [June 2011, p.88]
