STAFF REVIEW of Kung Fu Chaos (Xbox)

Kung Fu Chaos Box art Kung Fu Chaos is a fun game with a good sense of humor. There are plenty of unlockables (levels, costumes, and a few characters) and tons of play modes to keep things fresh. Both the single player mode and the multi-player modes are solid. I especially loved the 4 player games. It's very unique, it's part Mario Party/Fuzion Frenzy mixed in with a fighting game and a Bruce Lee movie. While I really liked the game, there were a few things that kept me from thinking it was a 5 out of 5. For one, I thought the characters were funny, but not as unique or as diverse as I would have liked. All the characters were "ok", but I found I didn't really love any of them. The graphics were good, but it is one of the few games that doesn't support 480p, and it shows on my bigscreen HDTV. And lastly, getting a 5 star rating on some of the levels seems darn near impossible! But, overall I did like the game, and thought it was a good buy. Lastly, I would like to comment on a few other reviews I read (EGM) that claimed this game was racist because it portrayed Asians as a stereotype. I think that is ludicrous. This is more of an homage to those 70's Kung Fu flicks, and not racist, in my opinion.

The gameplay is solid. I really like that they take you step by step through the levels and introduce new combos and moves gradually. There are plenty of modes, and all of them are plenty of fun. The fighting engine is good, but would not be good enough to support a fighting-only style game.

First on the good side, the scenery and diverse locales is terrific. There is plenty going on, and there is never a hint of a loss of framerate or slowdown. On the bad side, as I said before the game is one of the few Xbox games that does not support the 480p feature (KFC plays in 480i), and when you play it on a larger HDTV it shows as there are lines visible. And, in my opinion, the characters are somewhat bland. I could take or leave any of them.

The sound is terrific in KFC. It supports custom soundtracks. Personally, I will give any game a 5 in this category if they include the custom soundtrack feature. The other sounds are great. I love the "ninja" sounds, and it sounds great on Dolby 5.1.

More unique diverse characters that we can actually care about. Graphics should support 480p.

Overall: 9.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 8.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
