    Ken's Rage is an atrociously repetitive game that bafflingly remains entertaining in spite of its best efforts at self-sabotage. But don't let the low score fool you - you should pick this up when it hits the bargain bin. Just be prepared for the video game equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage is so terrible that it can't even satisfy an established template.

    Playing games should be fun, but you'll find absolutely no joy in Ken's Rage. The mindless battles and atrocious combat are a sad mockery of the source material. If you're foolhardy enough to bite on this, you'll find yourself quite literally able to relate to its furious protagonist.

    A bland beat 'em up plagued by monotonous gameplay and an extremely inclusive story.

It's trying to accomplish something that people used to enjoy in games, having fun. Remember when a game that was just plain fun was all that you needed to have to enjoy yourself? Well this game not only accomplishes that but also remains extremely faithful to to not only the source material, but also the game Koei has become synonymous for. So if you're a fan of the series or you just want a game where you can kick back and blast people into puddles of intestines (Love you Roah), then please rent/buy this game. It may not change your life, but it will definitely make it a little more entertained. Full Review »
