I take you aren't much of a fan of the source material? The art style and

are two of the biggest aspects of the whole Fist of the North Star series. 

 

I really enjoyed this game as a fan of the series, but would ultimately I agree I like most of the Yakuza games more but this is without a doubt the best Fist of the North Star game to date.

I'm really just unfamiliar with the source material.   Anime I'm guessing?

 

It just wasn't for me.  I'm all for supporting the releases of these kinds of games though.  Big advocate for other localized releases of sega's (Persona and Valkyria Chronicles).  This just wasn't my cup of tea.

Yeah Fist of the North Star is a manga and anime series that started in the 80s. I could definitely see not enjoying the game much if you aren't already a fan of the series since most of my enjoyment came from being a fan.

GameStop still hasn't gotten the memo yet. I want to see the used price.

It's not really secret that people die in bloody chunks, it's why we're there. This game is for the spectacle instead of respectability of Yakuza.

I enjoyed it a lot but each to his own. Yakuza with a FOTNS coat of paint = win to me.

I beat it. At its core it's a great game but god damn did I hate running back and forth constantly in this small city always tripping over yakuza style street fights, and forget about the driving parts since its horribly boring and isn't even like there is anything to explore out there. 

 

 

The basis of the story was good but it wasnt good in how it was told. The violence while amusing wore off after a while. It wasnt like vats in fallout 3 where I could watch that shit for 50 hours of game time and not get tired of it.

 

If they made it so the game only lasted 8 hours I'd probably have liked it a lot more.

This is one of those games that makes me wonder if there's just way too many games being made if something like this can be published by a company as large as Sega and still just fly under the radar, get a bunch of critical acclaim and still not apparently manage to sell all that well. 

Maybe its a situation where people don't get that the gloriously over the top nature of it, bordering on stupidity is the charm of this game, and it's not supposed to be super-serious edgy grimdark fodder for emo teens?

Different publishers have different approaches to their games post release. Sega titles hit $20 pretty quickly by design rather than desperation / failure.

Not a bad game, but the level of repetition and re-use of enemies and locations makes it hard to recommend. I guess it would be great if you were a kid or teen with a limited budget who wanted a relatively long game, but it didn’t capture my attention beyond being decent in the beginning.
