A fast-paced combat game with an imaginative look and feel, Ragdoll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic focuses on fun with exaggerated ragdoll physics action and charming HD visuals. Featuring accessible and intuitive controls, novice players can orchestrate impressive attacks with ninja-like precision, while offering hardcore players an intense combat system, use-of-weapons and strategy. Success depends on mastering basic Kung Fu moves while sharpening their acrobatic skills to swing off platforms and somersault through the air. This action builds up Chi Power, which can be conjured to perform spectacular SIXAXIS wireless controller-triggered special attack moves and combat sequences. Players can even taunt their opponents with the Free Pose system, ensuring the battle is infused with lighthearted fun. Perfect for any social occasion, Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic offers frantic multiplayer action for up to four players locally. [SCEA] Expand

  1. It’s engaging, unique, humorous and hugely polished, and earns its place as one of the top original titles on PSN with ease.
  2. An accessible, and crucially, fun scrapper. [May 2009, p.96]
  3. Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic is a $10.00 downloadable game that gets most gamers a good looking eight stage beat-em-up that has some similarities to Little Big Planet.
  4. Both refines and expands on the ideas introduced in Mark Healey's adventurous pet project. [June 2009, p.121]
  5. This should be a must have game for $9.99, as it is, with a missing online capability, it is a possible have, depends on what floats your boat.
  6. It's clear that the team is trying to provide an accessible, fast-paced scrap-'em-up that can be enjoyed by all the family, not just autistic puppeteers. In that sense, the game's a modest success, offering a shallow but sometimes riotous playpen for up to four players to scrap away in visually interesting ways. But the slightness of the package means that this polished after-pub game will provide some short-term laughs but only minimal long-term nourishment.
  7. Shamefully, Fists of Plastic won’t have you reliving your childhood memories for long, as the tiresome challenges and lack of online execution will have you beating yourself up quicker than you can fling your joypad across the room with dragon-punch shaped irritation.

The "professional" reviewers seem to This game is just pure joy, I haven't had such a blast with four friends since micro machines. The "professional" reviewers seem to forget that this is a $10 downloadable game and bashes it for not having online when the truth is that this game is THE bang for the buck -Infinitively more so than a movie ticket at the same price. It´s super polished as well as balanced. If one word could describe it, it would be FUN. Get it, and as long as you have friends you won't regret it. Expand

    I downloaded the game today and it was amazingly fun! The controls where very dynamic but still with sharp precision. It is hilarious comic I downloaded the game today and it was amazingly fun! The controls where very dynamic but still with sharp precision. It is hilarious comic and i felt emerged in the character. Basically a very slick control! It's hard to explain, and i guess one has to try it out for him/her self. This is the ultimate party game with friends, and the great single player with online rankings that want you to experiment with the controls in order to sqeeze out everything from the precious challenge seconds.

    Finally a game on ps3 that invites to quick accessible fun when you have friends over, something that the ps3 really needed, and with four Finally a game on ps3 that invites to quick accessible fun when you have friends over, something that the ps3 really needed, and with four players too which is a very rare sight nowadays. Easy to get to grips with for both casual gamer friends as well as my more experienced gamer friends, we had a blast all night! Great graphic design combined with ultra smooth controls makes this game the best I've ever purchased from psn. Easy to get to grips with and great ragdoll feeling, it's just instant fun. Slapping around with a floppy fish in your hands is unbeatable fun :) The ability to upload your funniest fights to youtube is also a huge plus. Warmly recommended! Expand

    Having played the first RDKF on the PC, I expected this new one to be a blast as well. It's fun, but this game is missing a crucial Having played the first RDKF on the PC, I expected this new one to be a blast as well. It's fun, but this game is missing a crucial element: ONLINE PLAY. This game begs for duking it out online, but all you can do is get some friends over to your house and play. If RDKF had online play I'd definitely give it a 10, but without it this game will get old for you fast. Expand

    Harmless fun for a temporarily free game. Kind of un-rag doll like physics, but what can you do?
