    Those who are able to look past the less than stellar visuals and a few awkward line reads will find a beat 'em up that stands with the best on offer in 2020. While Streets of Rage 4 is the king of the simplistic arcade style it helped create, Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues feels like a genuine effort to create a beat 'em up with the length and substance of a modern console game. While it does get repetitive, it takes far longer than most to get there, and that's a big victory for some game based on a nostalgia trip.

    Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is a unique surreal arcade scrolling beat-em-up. For me, it has mixed success as it does have cool characters with unique skills and some cool ideas. But as the gameplay is not robust this game will struggle to pull players in outside of fans of the film and series. I fell that some some features, like powerups, could have been cut if it meant the combat ended up more refined. It is fun to play with a friend and I’m sure fans of the series will enjoy the tie in, but it just leaves me with the feeling that this was rushed out before it was done.

    Cobra Kai is a fun game that falls victim to a lot of the genre’s downsides. I enjoyed it for what it was, but have a hard time recommending it mostly due to the $40 point of entry. The game has enough content, but it drags at times. This leads to a game that would have been an easy win if it was priced a little lower. I understand why with having the actors portray their roles, but this game could have done better with soundalikes and a lower price point.

    Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues on Xbox One gets about as many aspects right as it manages to mess up. There’s a surprising amount of depth to the movesets, the enemy variety is smashing, and the RPG-like skill trees are an added bonus. When the hit detection and technical accuracies are lacking though, it’s very annoying and off-putting. Throw in the phoned-in voice acting, budget graphics and bang-average story, and you find that most of the good work comes undone.

    It is difficult to objectively rate this Cobra-Kai in an industry where this type of game has completely disappeared from the shelves. The idea of honoring the series in a beat'em up tribute to the 80s was good; unfortunately, the developers did not take advantage of the many generations that followed to bring the wind of freshness and novelty necessary to the quality of the title. We end up with a game that could very well have been released many years ago despite some undeniable qualities that provide a certain playing pleasure. For this result, it is difficult to want to spend forty euros on it. Cobra Kai remains a far from unpleasant vent that might suit fans of the genre or series. It's up to you to see if you want to pay the price.

    An unpolished beat ‘em up that’s somewhat enjoyable in shorter bursts, Cobra Kai’s biggest sin is showing mercy to its unnecessary filler.

    If you’re a massive Cobra Kai fan, you’ll find enough good here for it to provide you with some hours of entertainment. It’s just not quite the game that it could have been. Thanks to Streets of Rage 4, the side-scrolling beat ’em up bar has been raised this year, and while Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is a fuller, more feature-packed entry in the genre, its core gameplay isn’t quite up to scratch. Maybe it’ll get patched and fulfil its potential? Until then, it’s an experience that most will find annoyingly mediocre.

    Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is a side-scrolling beat 'em-up video game based on the American web television series Cobra Kai,Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues is a side-scrolling beat 'em-up video game based on the American web television series Cobra Kai, developed by Brazilian studio Flux Game Studio and published by GameMill Entertainment in North America and Maximum Games in Europe. For those unfamiliar with the show, Cobra Kai tells the story of typical bully Johnny Lawrence decades after losing in the tournament at the end of The Karate Kid. While the show starts with the character extremely down on his luck, the game is set around the second season, which has Johnny established as the leader of a revived Cobra Kai dojo and in fierce competition with Miyagi-Do and the LaRusso clan. Flux Games made a great decision by having Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues step beyond the realm of the show and present over-the-top moves that would only make sense in a video game. The game is side-scrolling but you can also move up and down on the screen and occasionally the camera will change direction so it doesn’t look like you’re just going down one long street or road which is interesting. Outside of the main action, you have your dojo screen where you can use the coins collected throughout the level to purchase skills and stat upgrades for your characters. These are vital to progression and you can redo some of the levels if you wish as some of the upgrades are costly. There are also challenge milestones you can hit Expand

    Typowy średniak. Tytuł budżetowy i bez większego pomysłu. Graficznie słabo, ale kicz pasuje do tej gry. Muzyka całkiem niezła, choć powtarzalna. System walki to totalne drewno i choć później da się go znacznie rozwinąć, to i tak szału nie robi, a szkoda, bo to mogłoby uratować tytuł. System rozwoju bohaterów i Dojo jest najlepszym elementem gry i jako jedyny wygląda na zrobiony z głową! Powtarzalność rozgrywki również jest udręką tytułu. Ogólnie da się z tej gry czerpać przyjemność, ale nie jej zbyt wiele.
    Gra oferuje kanapową kooperacje.

I also had a lot of fun with this game, beating up everyone in the city with outlandish and over-the-top combos and abilities. But the game’s story is laughably bad, it seems that only Macchio and Zabka lended their voices to the game, there are glitches everywhere, and there is virtually no replayability factor here. If I weren’t such a fan of the show and the movie, I would have given this an even lower score. Expand

From it's wonky combat, tons of glitches/bugs, lackluster/ho-hum storytelling and with no other incentive to replay this game again, (ignoring the shockingly bad graphics) this is a game that belongs in the bargain bin and should stay there for all eternity. What a piece of sheep. And did I mention that GameMill Entertainment wants $40+ TAX FOR THIS?? With better beat em ups out there including Fight N Rage, this is just INEXCUSABLE! But yet, it is a guilty pleasure of mine. Expand
