    Karra-teeka! My favourite! :D

    I’ve been excited for this since I first heard it was being remade. I fondly remember the days of playing the original on the Apple IIe, especially the nasty surprise at the end if you didn’t save the princess the right way haha.

    I just tested the demo
    It is one of the worst game I have experienced since “expendable2″.
    each fight is like some boring repetitive Quick time event!!!

    and then the demo ends!
    is that all?
    I expected far better.

    Kung fu strike make a better job as “unofficial remake” of karateka.

      You are absolutely right. Already deleted the trial. Honestly i wouldn’t buy this even if was priced at 200 msp. It’s awful.
      And yes, KungFu Strike is more Karateka than this. You should learn the game to achieve these S ranks. Karateka 2012 is just like some on rail qte fest.

    Terrible.

    Can’t wait to try this one. The comments below do make me concerned though.

      Your comments on every single thing suck balls

        Unwarranted harassment for the win!

  • kingcrusher

    Wow, not sure why anyone would waste 800 points on this. Putting it nicely, this game bites. I’m just a little baffled at what they were thinking.
