The long awaited sequel to Shaq-Fu... his Shaq-Fu is unstoppable. Why am I excited about this?

When I saw ShaqDown in the new releases panel, I thought I was on the beta site and people were just screwing around.

Was this made in association with Shaquille or is this some bootleg game ?

How did Shaq Fu even start, did Shaq actually learn Kung Fu?

Shaq always knew Shaq Fu. It is a secret art known only to him.

Shaq Fu is so good you don't need a Genesis to play it. Just let your imagination fly. Or should I say... dunk? Eh?

Nah, probably fly.

I ended up buying this, it's a runner and should have been called Shaq of the North Star. It's pretty damn good for a runner, but it's still a runner.

Shaq is the majority shareholder of the publishing company, One Spear Entertainment.

It's kind of a stupid-runner type game, but oh my good gravy, the introductory cutscene makes the dollar purchase completely worth it.

So worth the 99 cents. So very worth the 99 cents.

Wow, games starring basketball stars are more relevant than ever! Now where's that Chaos in Windy City 2?

I remember renting the original and even as small child the intro to the game made no sense, but I had fun. I remember questioning why going through the back of the room suddenly put you into some unknown world. I mean I died a lot and everytime the beginning scene happened, I would realize more and more that it made no sense. I also remember thinking Shaq (I didnt know who he was back then) fighting with a basketball sucked.

Precisely. It's just another example of shameless exploitation from Western vidcon "developers" (and I use that term loosely).

Shaq is way too old and fat now to be a good fighter, we need some new blood up in here. Blake Griffin-jitsu. Carmello-kwondo. Something like that.

if nothing else, this picture is amazing.

Just pray there's no level where the zombies challenge Shaq to a free throw contest or we are all doomed.
