All in all, this is a more measured and cerebral game than it might appear at first glance; each of the opponents has a distinct set of behaviours and responses, which gives them a good illusion of personality, and as such the game is often more about strategy than reflexes as you match wits with the AI. Like all the best beat-em-ups, "International Karate" rewards dedication and planning, and, once mastered, will provide many hours of entertainment. But yeah, the sequel is better.
