    I couldn't help but wish the game was organized into traditional levels with beginnings and ends. The arena combat lends nothing to the story when every level is just a fight to defeat a certain number of enemies, and without the need to move from area to area, there is no reward or even a feeling of progression. Fighting lots of dudes is well executed, but it's not exciting.

    Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise isn't by any means a bad game, but it just isn't fun to play.

    If you're the sort of player who is willing to do without a complex plot if it means you can spend more time brawling, Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise is a pleasant surprise. It sometimes lacks the refinement that you'd expect from a modern release, but the core experience doesn't suffer in the slightest. Make sure that you don't overlook it.

    It's not entirely flawless, packing a bit of aggravation in with its stiff difficulty, and the lack of online play is sort of disappointing, but for $10 I definitely think it's worth picking up.

    It won't win any awards for graphics or sound, but it's simplicity is part of its charm. [Apr 2012, p.77]

    While the combat is fun and satisfying, the game is hampered by its repetitive nature and difficulty as you progress. Anyone looking for some Kung Fu action will certainly find it here, and it definitely is more fun with a friend. Playing in short bursts will increase the longevity of the game.
