There are so many fighting games these days that you can almost never tell which the best ones are and which are the mediocre ones unless you play. It is often a challenge for game enthusiasts to really get their hands on games that really make their day.
For avid Street Fighter fans, Fist of the North: Ken’s Rage (PS3) should be one of the most coveted fighting games ever made. But like some other game designs, it still has areas of improvement that really have to be dealt with. Read on and find out!
a. Unclear story delivery
In fighting games, you have to really get engrossed in the storyline to get a clear picture of what is really happening. This also gives the players the motivation to go on with the game itself. In Fist of the North, you don’t get the clarity of the storytelling, leaving you clueless of the real deal.
b. No multi-player feature
These days, fighting games should also cater to the multi-player craving of gamers from all over. Being able to interact with other players gives more fun and excitement to the actual game. It could be quite boring if you win in a game and no one knows about it.
c. No good help
In Fist of the North, you could get some help from your artificial intelligence alliances. But sadly, they are mostly useless and you get to bring down more enemies than they do.
d. Slow controls
The controls in this game make you very frustrated because of the sluggishness. It really affects the game momentum when this happens. This is supposed to be filled with quick moves. It is a fighting game, after all.
e. Poor voice acting
Fist of the North has story inserts that has dialogues. These are supposed to add more meat to the game but unfortunately, the voice acting or dubbing is not that expertly done. This dampens the overall mood of the storyline.
Fist of the North is definitely one of the fighting games that could go places if these aspects are improved. Surely Ken’s fans won’t be disappointed anymore once modifications are made for the next release.
