    A monotonous one-note brawler. [Apr 2013, p.87]

    There's no escaping the issue of this being a shameful followup to a genuinely great brawler. I like Koei, but I'm the first to admit it can cut corners wherever it feels able to get away with doing so -- and even for that particular studio, this is a notably substandard effort. Uglier, more boring, as stale as week-old French bread, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 is best ignored by fans of both Dynasty Warriors and Hokotu no Ken alike.

    This has to be one of my favorite 360 games! After beating the 'Ken's Rage 1' I was glad to see improved graphics, the characters and textureThis has to be one of my favorite 360 games! After beating the 'Ken's Rage 1' I was glad to see improved graphics, the characters and texture are much more detailed and the game features more varied locations. The story mode is a single cohesive experience that follows through every major detail form the original manga. Instead of playing multiple repetitive campaigns with different player this game is a single campaign that lets you choose which warrior you want to play as throughout the different story arc's. This game is a great refresher for old fans and can educate new fans in a much quicker and enjoyable way then reading the manga or watching hundreds of episodes of the anime. Now it is a Dynasty Warriors game so repetitive brawling is to be expected, the progression system has been changed and may take a moment to figure out but one you do its not bad, I do feel boss battles have been simplified but the game is still really enjoyable and it does have online or local co-op which is a blast!

    Realmente não liguem para os reviews negativos.

    Realmente não liguem para os reviews negativos.

    É assim que um jogo baseado num anime (Hokuto no Ken) DEVE SER.

    Pontos POSITIVOS:
    - Ótima história (seguindo quase a trama toda do anime);
    - Ótimos e carismáticos personagens;
    - Um monte de personagens diferentes, sendo introduzidos aos poucos;
    - Movimentos bonitos e plásticos;
    - Muitos golpes especiais;

    Pontos NEGATIVOS:
    - Muitos loadings;
    - Ausência de um Save a cada rodada;
    - Cenários pouco trabalhados (contudo condizentes com o anime);
    - Personagens inimigos genéricos e muito repetitivos;
    - Falta de um modo ''Theater''.

    Ótima porta de entrada para quem não conhece Hokuto no Ken. Ótimo jogo para quem é fã.
    Ótimo para fãs da série estilo "Dynasty"'.
