Tirando le somme, il titolo Sega, rimane ancora un bel gioco, e senza dubbio il miglior rappresentante videoludico delle gesta di Kenshiro e soci… se si esclude l’ultimo picchiaduro Sega uscito per PS2 ovviamente.

Last Battle é um bom lançamento para Mega Drive. Aarzak, o herói, parte em vingança às forças do mal. Utilizando a técnica da arte Marcial "jet-kwon-do", ele deve derrotar todos os inimigos até alcançar Garokk, o verdadeiro inimigo, para salvar Alyssa e expulsar os invasores. São 4 fases de dificuldade progressiva.

Eis aí um jogo que vai agradar quem curte games de pancadaria.

Fist of the North Star is only worth playing if you are a fan of the anime/Manga and if you enjoy fighting challenging bosses. Everyone else should steer clear.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Nov, 1989)
Last Battle reminds me of a souped-up version of Altered Beast. The characters are the same size and move at the same speed (at a crawl). The backgrounds also scroll in the same fashion as Altered. There are Boss characters, maps, and more detailed graphics, but the game wasn't that exciting.

It hasn’t aged particularly well, but as a Genesis launch game, the robust sprites and attitude are quality and there’s a kind of nostalgia in the way Last Battle exemplifies that time of transition between the Sega Master System and the Genesis. With 8-bit mechanics and early 16-bit visuals, it’s unquestionably a product of an era, but it’s a great era. For its part, Last Battle evokes the memory of a time when getting buff seemed more than sufficient as a premise and nonsensical box art was the standard. In a time when every premise is shoot the Iraqi or Russian guy and every box features the same soldier stationed in the same exact pose, the rose colored glasses take on a darker tint.

Aqui, o herói precisa salvar a pátria da ameaça que é o trio formado por Garokk, Gromm e Gere - e seus asseclas, Hulk, por exemplo.

Last Battle is still a very good game and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good challenge. My gripes with it are few, the only problem being the music. If it had been better or at least louder, it would have made the game more enjoyable. As it is, you really can't hear it and the sounds usually cover it up. My only other problem is with the difficulty. Some bosses are insanely hard and cheap. Still, Last Battle is a good game and I would still recommend it, even with its few flaws.

The Last Battle is a bad game that could have been decent but is rightfully forgotten. There are no redeeming qualities here, just mounds of frustration. Between the manga and games Fist of the North Star could not catch a break in the US. It would be many years before the license would be done justice in the import only PlayStation fighting game in 2000 and this game certainly didn’t help. Pass.

Egal ob man das Spiel nun in seiner japanischen Originalform spielt oder in der zensierten, will der Spielspaß nie so recht aufkommen, es gibt einfach bessere Sidescroller, wie die Streets of Rage Spiele und selbst Final Fight bot im gleichen Jahr mit Combos und besserem Leveldesign mehr Abwechslung. Auch das gesplatter der japanischen Version sorgt nicht für mehr Spielspaß. Last Battle ist ein Spiel, an dem der Zahn der Zeit mal wieder ganz ordentlich genagt hat.

There's an invincibility code widespread on the 'net for Last Battle. Unfortunately, the code is a fake. If you want to cheat, you've got to unlock the legendary Seal of Codes with a GameShark or Game Genie. Otherwise, you're stuck doing things the hard... and slow... way. With all the mandatory labyrinth-trudging and punch/kick/punch/kick two-move battles, only the easily-amused folks shall find entertainment within!
IGN (Jan 11, 2008)
I love my childhood as much as the next guy, but Last Battle is one of those games that shatters the rose-colored glasses. Because I was so excited about getting a Genesis and beating up enemy sprite larger than my pinky, I was sold on Last Battle from the get-go. But playing it now just leaves me with a wry smile -- and the acceptance that that the phrase "classic" sometimes refers only to a time period. If you want the punishment, fish it off of eBay and see if you can actually push through the whole thing. Good luck, pal.

Last Battle est comparable à Altered Beast puisque ayant vu le jour en début de vie de la Megadrive. De plus, il en emprunte les principaux mécanismes de gameplay : on se déplace d’un bout à l’autre de l’écran, assailli par les inexorables assauts de dizaines d’adversaires. Sauf que là où Altered Beast accrochait le joueur grâce à son gameplay basé sur l’évolution des capacités du protagoniste, Last Battle propose deux misérables attaques tout au long de son « aventure ». À ne conseiller à personne, pas même à l’occasion d’une blague entre potes, quiconque trouvant cette chose drôle ayant sérieusement besoin de prendre l’air.
The Video Game Critic (Apr 27, 2008)
The boss characters tend to have green skin, because as we all know, green people are inherently evil. But the highlight of Last Battle is its unintentionally hilarious text dialogue. Check out this dramatic exchange: Aarzak: "What's the matter!" Gere: "I want to become a hero." Wow, that's deep. Here's another one: Aalyssa: "Aarzak! Save the world!" Aarzak: "I am the only one who can save the world!" Does this guy have an ego or what? When Aarzak isn't strolling through generic outdoor locations, he's trying to survive the trap-laden dungeons with cheap hits and dead ends. The game requires a lot of trial and error, and I seriously doubt it's worth the effort. I'm just grateful that this is the last battle, because I don't think I could stomach another one of these!
