Fighting game fans cheer for your life! As the legendary arcade hit Hokuto no Ken (aka. Fist of the North Star) is coming to your PlayStation2™. Made by the same team as Guilty Gear, this game sports some of the fastest paced action seen on a 2D fighter to date. Play as Kenshiro, Shin, Raoh, Yuda and many other characters from the Hokuto no Ken anime and manga series, and unleash their Fatal KO techniques!Every player has a seven stars gauge that, through various attacks, can be lowered and once empty, a final "death star" will light up and the enemy player can perform a special attack that finishes of the opponent similar to the Instant Kill-moves from Guilty Gear. Unlike in Guilty Gear, where you could boost any number of times, Hokuto no Ken has a gauge that limits the number of boosts a player can perform, however, the boost is much more powerful than the one in Guilty Gear.This game is based on the first half of the original manga (vol. 1-16) and uses the characters as they were depicted in the 1980's anime series. The voices of the playable characters are all performed by the original seiyu from the anime, with the exception of Kenshiro and Rei, who are both played by new actors.これまでの格闘ゲームのシステムを網羅した2D対戦格闘の集大成としながらも、「北斗の拳」の世界観を再現した斬新なシステムで全国のゲームセンターにてプレイヤーを魅了した2D対戦格闘ゲーム「北斗の拳」。このたび、“PlayStation 2”専用ソフトとして遂に登場!

A fine 2d fighter!
Honestly since getting this ( and ordered 4 other games with it ) I have not been able to put this title down, it is just really fun, a nice change from all the snk and capcom fighting games.

It feels really deep to me, I like all the moves and I really can\'t complain about the characters designs, I enjoy the anime also and think any fan of the series should pick this up asap, you really will not regret doing so.

I just hope they make a second game with more characters.

Hokuto No Ken
Fast and furious craziness with fluid gameplay. Historic and genuine finishing movements when the death star shines. A modern mix of rock and neo-classical for the soundtrack, which features the original Ai Wo Torimodose from the television series. The only problem is the diminutive ten count character roster. Anyway, Shin for the win!

Great idea.
This game is great. Though it has a LOT of combos that can really turn the match in a matter of seconds, you can still play it (though some people may not find this to be tourney worthy). There are only 10 characters, but getting past that, the game play is very deep and has a LOT of options when you fight. It may be intimidating at first with the speed, but that is why you have the boost button, or you just learn how to Instant Air Dash. Combos are easy and loose if you look them up and get the timing right. It\'s a great fighter with people around to play, but you may find it lacking after a while by yourself. Otherwise, it is a MUST BUY!

I predicted that a FOTNS title approaching this quality would appear years ago, only I thought maybe Capcom would be at the helm. Thats a moot point though, as Arc System Works has kept at the forfront of 2D fighting action for quite a while now with its superb Guilty Gear franchise. If you are a Hokuto No Ken fan, or a fan of combat games YOU NEED THIS TITLE! There is an incredible amount of attention to detail, both in the graphics and sound departments, and also in relation to references from the anime and comics. Gameplay is quite similar to GG, but considering how good that particular game is that wont worry anyone. Presentation is also predictably excellent and to top it all off the included DVD is also at the same time hilarious AND informative. Truly killer stuff guys.

Good game
Very good game. Great gameplay only thing lacking is a better story mode i feel it would suit an anime game. The other downside is that it doesn\'t have alot of characters but it still includes all the popular ones. Other than that the game is amazing you will like it alot if you are in to fighting games.

I wish more people played fighting games these days.
