TurboGrafx-16The Video Game Critic
China Warrior doesn't play as good as it looks, but it looks pretty damn good, so give it a whirl.

That's not to say The Kung Fu is a classic. Well, maybe it is. It's a crap classic and if you can live with that then that's good enough for me. It may have jerky sprites, unresponsive controls and a definite lack of length and variety, but at least it's not Deep Blue

A game that doesn't quite meet average standards. The 1/2 screen-sized characters are a refreshing change from the normal action contest, but this game is far too predictable with hazards approaching from only one direction. More variety would have been better.
Auf den ersten Blick sieht das Spiel relativ gut aus, nach einer längeren und intensiveren Auseinandersetzung möchte man es aber am liebsten mit Lichtgeschwindigkeit gegen die Wand knallen lassen. Die nette Musik kann da leider auch nichts mehr retten.

The difficulty was extremely high, but it's not like you'd want to continue your gamer after dying anyway. While the sprites are large, there is no other reason to play China Warrior. Away with it.
Yes, the game looks amazing – even today the size of the characters is quite impressive, and they animate pretty well, too. Unfortunately the gameplay is as shallow as a puddle. You have a couple of offensive moves and that’s it. It’s pretty challenging – frustratingly so at times – but also painfully repetitive and things get dull incredibly quickly.
China Warrior's insultingly simple take on the side-scrolling brawler formula just serves to elevate the appeal of other TurboGrafx fighters – see, Vigilante really is passable compared to this trash. Its enormous sprite graphics were mildly impressive two decades ago, and its music actually isn't all that bad. But the gameplay is just far too restrictive, unoriginal and boring. Don't go anywhere near downloading this stinker, as absolutely any other game currently available on the Virtual Console service is more worth your money. Yes, even The Legend of Kage.
Your towering Bruce Lee lookalike minces across the screen, and you prod the buttons to punch or kick approaching enemies out of the way. Monks, wasps, fireballs - the usual everyday obstacles when out for a stroll. Yet the whole thing is so stiff and monotonous that you'll grow bored way before the end of the first level. While such shortcomings were papered over by the OMG factor of the graphics way back when, such basic trickery falls flat in 2007. Download this at your peril.
