Fist of the North Star

Hiya :D

I got this game a short while ago - I like scrolling beat-em ups and have been waiting for a price drop.

This game is pretty cool - the graphics are pretty good and the gameplay simple but fun.

It features plenty of atmosphere and so far I would recommend it to beat-em up / anime / manga fans.

That is all for now - enjoy the games and as always...

Game-On :D

This is golden stuff. Better writing than anything in Fist of the North Star.

I once watched the Fist of the north star movie with my dad, he was not amused at all.

Thats not a wise idea....wait....you are talking about the terrible live action movie?

Or the actually decent retelling of the tv series story anime movie?

Of which both films are available to watch for free in full on youtube. GOOOOOOOOOOOO Piracy!!!

As for the game. I am just needing to have the right amount of money and it to be the right price for me to pop on it. i know it will be bad but....I just want to play it. I simply buy Godhand if a working ps2 existed in my house. *stares at the ps2 games next to his pc* Emulation just dosnt do it.......

Aside from the moves I need to get to the end of Godhand to witness this first hand.

Dont act like you dont like the Ball Busta! BALL BUSTA!!"

I got as far as Shin - he kicked my ass lol - but am still liking the game. This game is actually much better than I expected - and it shows once again its not always best to put 100% faith in games reviews.

Well everyone has their own opinions but yeah I loved the game once I understood how to play it. I've already completed it enjoyed every minute of it, so let me know if you need a hand on some parts (except for getting all seven stars for each stage, which I will try at some point).
