Hokuto no ken fans need this game

The game gives a good role model (though I think this may be unintentional). For long time fans, this game is great. The battles are satisfying and fun. The game can even be fun if you have never read the manga or watched the anime. Kenshiro is a good role model and what he does in the game can teach a lesson (not killing the bad as a lesson but trying to do the right thing) However him being a good role model is something some people may thing and others wont. Overall: fun and great over the top gameplay mixed with a storyline.

Great role models
Too much violence

You're wrong about the positive role model thing.

Kenshiro is a good role model and of course he has to kill because its set in a post apocalyptic world. He only kills evil people and protects innocent people (heck he even gives them food and water when they are about to starve or die from thirst). Just because a character fights evil doers does not make him a bad role model. Also the post apocalyptic theme like others with that theme don't have that much law so of course the hero has to kill the baddies to protect the innocent. Also if you keep criticizing the heroes fighting bad guys you're going to make your self look like a villain apologist.
