Shaq-Fu….Just don’t play it…

Just don’t play Shaq-Fu…

The title screen should be bad enough..

Ok you have been officially warned. This game is bad, very bad. I wont go and say it is unplayable because its isn’t. It just suffers from slow play, unresponsive control, and the fact that Shaq is under powered compared to the other opponents. The easiest was I found was to try to get Shaq in close, push the dpad toward the opponent, and keep hitting b. Sometimes you will get lucky and win. He has 2 special attacks, but both are worthless. The flaming kick has no range, and with the shuriken throw it seems like it takes ten minutes to actually throw it. You also better get used to Shaq because he is the only playable character in story mode…

The other characters are much faster and will keep just using their special attacks. All of which are better than yours. I gave up about halfway through as it just wasn’t worth continuing on anymore. I was planning on beating it for the review, but it was just so unbearable. It would be different if the graphics were at least decent.

Just look at Shaq's face...

All in All, just skip this one. If you don’t believe me, there is a whole episode of ABC’s tv show Fresh off the Boat devoted to how bad it is. I wanted to do a non mainstream game as the first Genesis post so it doesnt seem like all we do are popular and great games.

I have to give it a 1/10 just because it is physically functional

If you really have to have a copy it shouldn’t be more than 5-10 bucks.
