  1. Whilst Invincible Tiger looks great it really offers nothing new other than a mode that most of us cant play and with games like Turtles on Live it will soon be forgotten.
  2. Play UK
    Great fun, but not on par with Blitz Arcade's amazing Droplitz. [Issue#185, p.87]

    Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao is a gimmick game. Its most unique feature is its ability to display fancy pants 3D visuals, and the experience is indeed impressive. But take that away and you're left with a generic beat 'em up.
  4. The visuals are fancy, but this kung fu game suffers from uninspired combat and unresponsive controls.
  5. Playstation Official Magazine UK
    Likeable at times, but the lack of variety will have you reaching for the bottle long before the end. [Feb 2010, p.115]

    After playing this game, it would be a real stretch for me to recommend Invincible Tiger at any XBLA price level.
  7. Despite the appearance of finesse, it’s surprising how quickly everything devolves into frantic button mashing and rote flailing.
  8. Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao's price tag is far too high for the quality it brings, and the difficulty level is off the charts. There are just far too few positive traits in this fighting game to make it worth purchasing.

    The game is istantly an arcade classic, fast, challenging and fun.
    The figthing is simple at first, yer it's hard to truly master:
    combos, dodges, rolls, counters are all tools of the trade you'll have to understand to get a change.

    While the action is fast, you'll need to think before acting, different enemies are vulnerable to different kind of attacks, and many will parry or dodge while surrounding you and following you around.

    The zen meter is the pivot of your stratey, its two sides gets full when you dodge or hit, when they meet you get more points and can anleash a a temporary bonus.

    At the same time, when you meditate (wich heal yourself) you'll drain the zen meter, and will be open to attacks.

    The more successful your attacks, the more your rank will rise, and will score more points.
    Points are needed to buy new lifes, and you'll need them if you don't master your moves.

    The levels are beutifully rendered, and act like movie sets in wich you'll run around making your way throu enemies, and at the same time giving you multiple ways of escape or interact with.

    If you manage to get a pair of 3d glasses( even the old red blue) the graphics get's even better, the illusion of prospective is really well done, and the game runs nice and smooth.

    The musical score is really good, funky style and free to download, check it here

    Added bonus is the cooperative multyplayer.

    I'm surprised that big names in game reviews are so unproffessional about this game, looks like they didn't even try to play the game, and discarded it at the first difficoulty. shame on them.
    Don't be fooled by the low scores, try the game and learn the mechanics, this is a really nice game.
