Au delà de l'immense respect de l'oeuvre originale, Fist of the North Star : Ken's Rage n'en reste pas moins un mauvais titre. Blindé de défauts, lent, mou et totalement inintéressant du début à la fin, le titre de Koei stigmatise à lui tout seul ce que peut donner un magnifique ratage basé sur une franchise malheureusement sous-exploitée. Dommage d'autant que l'idée de départ était parfaitement adaptée au manga original. On pourra toujours se satisfaire de la bonne durée de vie, des nombreux personnages à incarner et des débordements gore mais il va sans dire que cela ne sauvera pas notre pauvre Kenshiro du naufrage. Comme dirait l'autre, tu ne le sais pas encore mais tu es déjà has-been.

If you like to play games that make you want to either fall asleep or pull your hair out in frustration, then Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage is the right game for you. Most of the action will lull you to a false sense of infallibility, until you reach the boss fights. Then you go from being nearly invincible to fighting someone that feels nearly impossible to beat. This wild swing in difficulty would be forgivable if the game were actually fun. It is anything but. Save your time and money on something else.

Koei’s done what it did with the Gundam series: try to mix a popular anime series with their tired formula to try and fool players into thinking they’re playing something other than the latest, billionth installment of the ever unchanging Dynasty Warriors series. Something like Fist of the North Star deserved something better than just a blatant copy/paste job. Ultimately, all the buckets of blood in the world fail to hide this is the same thing players have grown disenchanted with a generation ago.
