Let's Play Ken's Rage

Ken's Rage is a character action game that came out way back in 2010 for the PS3/360. It's a faithful adaptation of the show/manga into interactive format, and it makes excellent use of the license in both its presentation and game mechanics. Really, it's just the best.

The best?

There are countless mechanics dedicated to making you feel like the most powerful wall of righteousness that ever was. Plow enemies over with heavy physics objects, explode their faces off with muscle-propelled warheads, slam them against crumbling walls, and smash them into showers of gore using Hokuto Shinken. The game also sports a stunningly powerful leitmotif, which is just a small part of the emotional wrecking ball that is the entire heavy metal soundtrack.

It's not all about the spectacle either, as everything from the RPG-lite nuances, down to the smallest strikes of your mightiest combo leave plenty of thought for the player in how to approach a situation and come away with maximum bloodshed. And maximum points! It's an exercise in absolute brawling satisfaction, using a license that couldn't have been more appropriate.

How's this gonna go down?

We'll be playing through "Legend Mode", which predicatbly follows Kenshiro's massive story to its conclusion. We'll also take a look at the unique levels of the unlockable characters.

Let's get started.
