Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise – Combat Gameplay Trailer
Oct 1, 2018Fist of the North Star feels like the perfect anime adaptation. It has the looks, the bloody combat sequences and the free roaming through the wasteland, with many collectibles, minigames and some surprises for Sega fans, although it doesn´t feel as polished as a Yakuza Game.
Oct 1, 2018When it comes to making you feel like the coolest person around, Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise succeeds on every level. While its structure may borrow a little too heavily from the Yakuza series, combat is the real differentiator with unforgettable techniques that’ll really leave a mark and combos to finish off even the most foreboding of enemies. Those looking for their next dose of Japanese flair will most certainly be hooked, because Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is everything we were hoping it would be.
Oct 11, 2018Ultimately, Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise feels like a more ridiculous entry into the Yakuza series, but with less content and a smaller budget. As a result, it’s a fun excursion, especially for fans of the Fist of the North Star franchise, but it never truly impresses.
Oct 22, 2018I loved the mini-games, and found a lot of the substories delivered the quirky humor that I adore from the Yakuza series. I also enjoyed the combat for the most part, even if the various execution animations get a little tiring after the first dozen or so times you see them. But everything else surrounding those things is just a slog to get through. And the story takes some really weird, nearly non-sensical twists towards the end that I definitely had issues with. So I can’t say I would suggest this whole-heartedly, to either Yakuza or Fist of the North Star fans. Maybe check this one out via discount or rental, otherwise you should probably just go back and play more Yakuza.

Even if you aren't a fan of the anime i'm positive you''ll enjoy the story and game-play. The story doesn't really have to do with the anime so anyone can play it and get what's going on. OH and the game-play is exactly like Yakuza so its safe to say its very nice :). I say its a very good game to pick up if your in the mood for something crazy and gory!… Expand

Oct 2, 2018One of the most fulfilling Fist of The North Star games yet. It runs on the Yakuza 0 engine, but often times doesn't feel like it. KenshiroOne of the most fulfilling Fist of The North Star games yet. It runs on the Yakuza 0 engine, but often times doesn't feel like it. Kenshiro flows between enemies more fluidly and overall the action is more exciting. The minigames are stupidly fun, but I won't go into great detail to avoid spoilers. If you are a yakuza fan, definitely grab this when you can. If you're a Fist of The North Star fan, then this is a MUST. Here's hoping to more and improved games in the future. Ryu Ga Gotoku studios do not disappoint.… Expand

Addictive minigames, excellent free-roam, awesome substories and cool racing mechanics. The story was great. As someone new to anything Fist of The North Star, it was a perfect introduction. This is a Yakuza title with a Fist of the North Star lore.
My only critique of this game applies if you're interested in getting the trophies - the grind is real, to a fault.
I want to make a special note of the massive replay value of this game as there is an optional area with really powerful enemies and rare materials exceeding the difficulty of the main story - you are well-rewarded for your curiosity.
As usual, Ryu Ga Gotoku studios impressed and to fellow Yakuza fans, you will feel right at home with the Yakuza mechanics and the voice cast - yet you will be playing a different kind of adventure. This is what a good spinoff is.… Expand
Oct 17, 2018Being a fan of both the Yakuza games and Fist of the North Star, this game was pretty much a must buy for me.
First of all, I think this isBeing a fan of both the Yakuza games and Fist of the North Star, this game was pretty much a must buy for me.
First of all, I think this is the first game since the original Yakuza that has a dub...but I couldn't tell you the quality of it, since when I heard that voice actors of the Yakuza games would voice Fist of the North Star characters that had roles that were similar to those of their Yakuza counterparts. (Takaya Kuroda as Kenshiro, Hidenari Ugaki as Jagi, ect.). So I can at least say that the Japanese version is up to snuff at least.
Anyway, on to the review. For those worrying about not knowing the story of Fist of the North Star if you got into the game because the trailer looked cool or you enjoyed the other works of the Yakuza studio, don't. The game features a new storyline set in the city of Eden, a place where civilization still exists. You'll still meet the characters from the original manga and anime, but they are introduced at different times and their fates might be different from their manga and anime counterparts.
Like in Yakuza, the combat feels great. Maybe even better because Yakuza at least tried to have *some* realism. Here you can juggle enemies in the air and, of course, make them explode with Hokuto Shinken. That being said, with Secret Techniques being the easiest way to dispose of enemies fast it *can* get a little annoying to watch them over and over again. Fortunately, you'll unlock Perfect Channeling too at some point, which means you don't always have to watch those if you press the circle button at the right time.
Overall, I also enjoyed the story a lot. And both the original manga and anime characters and those created by the Yakuza story were handled excellently. That being said, I did wish the original manga and anime characters got some more screentime. Because usually, it felt like they just kinda showed up to remind people that they still existed in the Fist of the North Star realm, have a fight with them and then they'd disappear. Even Raoh shows up but isn't the main threat. Hopefully that gets rectified if we ever get a sequel, but I'm not so sure if that'll be an option.
Aside from the main story, the side activities and substories were great. Mostly I got a lot of laughs from seeing the serious Kenshiro, who seems even more serious than Kiryu, acting silly. I didn't, however, finish all substories. For one I had to gather 100 million through working in the Nightclub. Which was just too grind-y for my taste. Otherwise, I had a lot of fun.
My biggest gripes, aside from the ones I've mentioned, is that it feels like you get the runaround a lot in both the main story and substories in the form of: "Oh, go over there to speak with him. What, no he was there the whole time! Nevermind, he's back there anyway."
There also the fact that the game is very...brown. Understandable, considering the setting. But it's still dull when you're driving around the Wasteland. Eden also seems to be the only settlement that any effort was put into. You spend the most time there, so I get that. But it's still a little unfortunate to get a, rather open world when compared to the Yakuza games, and have it be so brown and dull...
Overall, I'd definitely recommend the game. Especially to those that enjoy the Yakuza games or Fist of the North Star with the characters, combat, side content and the story being the biggest selling point and even with the complaints I have about the game I'd still say it's worth a solid 8.… Expand
Oct 14, 2018FotNS: Lost Paradise is mix between Yakuza and a post-apocaliptic scenario with bizarre situations and funny moments.
-Graphics: runs inFotNS: Lost Paradise is mix between Yakuza and a post-apocaliptic scenario with bizarre situations and funny moments.
-Graphics: runs in the old Yakuza engine at 60 fps but using a cell-shading style that tries to imitate cartoon-like graphics rather than realistic. It could have more detail in some moments and the desert area need more work.
-Story: its quite simple and a bit similar to Yakuza 2 in some aspects. A more martial art focused story and a better character development could have delivered a better story even including Yuria
-Exploration: similar to Yakuza, with more minigames rather than metagames, some like Manager Ken should have more explanations and a similar system to Yakuza.
The buggy has to mechanics: races (minigames) and looting materials to improve it. The last one kinda boring and bartering not always gives you what you want.
Coloseum works better here than in Yakuza.
-Combat: the best combat system since Yakuza 0, fast and with a lot of opportunities to perform.
The burt mode (Extreme Heat Mode) works really good and its more useful than in Yakuza.
-Conclusion: if you are a Yakuza fan or llke martial arts, this might be for you.… Expand
