Invincible Tiger is an entertaining game, but one without a ton of variety. It can’t really be considered a button-mashing title, because, if you take that approach and just start hammering on the face buttons, you’ll take a pounding. Just the same, you might get something out of it—especially if you’re looking for something to test your skills—and at an 800 Microsoft Points cost (about $10), it’s not a big outlay of cash for you to give it a try.

If you’re a hardcore fan of side-scrolling brawlers from the NES era and you’re looking for something to scratch that nostalgic itch, definitely give Invincible Tiger a look. You may not be blown away by its straight-forward combat, but it’s a decent, albeit a bit too expensive, tribute to a genre that hasn’t gotten much love in recent times.

In conclusione, Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao è senza ombra di dubbio un titolo divertente sulla breve distanza, ma che non riesce purtroppo ad intaccare i palati più raffinati a causa di un’azione breve e spesso troppo ripetitiva. Certo, nel panorama dei prodotti “indie” un titolo del genere è sempre ben accetto, considerando anche il suo stile 2D condito con arti marziali e combo a profusione, ma è anche vero che non si spinge oltre i confini tracciati dai suoi padri putativi. Fatelo vostro, quindi, solo se siete in astinenza cronica di titoli side-scrolling ed amate particolarmente le atmosfere “Kung-Fu” alla Bruce Lee e soci. In quel caso, i 1200 Punti Microsoft necessari all’acquisto saranno decisamente ben spesi.

Invincible Tiger is a stylish, fun and frantic brawler. It has no great depth to it, but enough challenges and content to keep you playing until you feel like you're in your very own 70's kung fu movie.

Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao is a gimmick game. Its most unique feature is its ability to display fancy pants 3D visuals, and the experience is indeed impressive. But take that away and you're left with a generic beat 'em up. And 99 percent of us will have to take it away, because we don't have a specific type of television that will display in 3D, nor do we have the expensive 3D goggles. Punching and kicking endless hordes of enemies is a very retro game design. Retro isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course, but I expect a bit more out of a $15 game. Is Invincible Tiger worth the same amount as Shadow Complex? No. To put things in perspective, Invincible Tiger is about as deep as the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game -- which is available on XBLA for $5.

You can go through Invincible Tiger with a friend, either locally or online, but you better be at the same skill level or it gets mighty frustrating. You cull from the same pool of lives, so if your buddy is more apt to die, it can make an already challenging game exceeding difficult. Co-op is fun when you get into a good rhythm, and like the clever boss fights and eye-pleasing scenery, it shows that this 2D beat-'em-up had a lot of potential. But the repetitive, mindless combat and clunky controls largely derail the experience, adding little excitement and way too much aggravation to the mix. Invincible Tiger adds a gimmicky 3D layer to the visuals, but the gameplay is what really needed that extra depth.

Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao is a perfect example of style over substance. That isn’t to say there is no depth to the experience; in fact, there are a number of different combos and various other maneuvers, such as successful dodging, that you’ll have to master if you want to even stand a chance against your adversaries. The problem, however, is that the game expects you to tolerate wave after wave of boring, frustrating, relentless ninjas and sumo wrestler-types as you sort through what might work best against them. It often doesn’t seem fair, and when you die, there’s no incentive to try again. It’s challenging, sure, but it’s also about as fun as repeatedly slamming your head against a gong. Let’s just say that this is not the type of kung fu that Peter Gibbons would appreciate.

After playing this game, it would be a real stretch for me to recommend Invincible Tiger at any XBLA price level. When I saw that this game is a $15 title, I strongly recommend taking a pass. If you are craving to try out Invincible Tiger, I'm confident the demo will provide you with more than enough time with the game.

3D graphics may be the future, but this dull beat 'em-up is unlikely to convince you of the fact.

Despite the appearance of finesse, it’s surprising how quickly everything devolves into frantic button mashing and rote flailing. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of your adversaries, who chase you around with a hunger for blood. They’ll often whittle down your meager appropriation of lives in seconds, and dying too many times forces you to re-play all of the chapters in the current level from the beginning. Sacrificing your score to buy increasingly expensive extra lives can only sustain your killing spree for so long. Invincible Tiger has great spirit but poor implementation. As a result, even the most diehard Kung-Fu fans will find disappointment in this brawler.
