We're talking Streets of Rage meets Street Fighter meets Devil May Cry. It's a modern day take on the classic beat 'em up. Play as Shaquille O'Neal learn hundreds of moves and battle techniques, take on thousands of enemies with dozens of cool melee weapons, battle bosses in dynamic arenas, master cool finishing moves and play with your buddies in COOP mode or against each other in player vs player combat.

    In Shaq Fu, dozens of unique and varied enemies await which require careful use of tactics. The game also features destructive environments, awesome power ups and a series of well-designed, beautiful levels with interesting progression. This is all tied together by what very well might be the story of the century, a performance worthy of an Oscar, by the Big Diesel, in his battle against a villain for the ages the mysterious Black Star Ninja.

    Trying to play the nostalgia chord is risky, because it has its own limits. It shows, in Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn. Despite its hilarious scenario, the game is repetitive and devoid of any attempt to create something new.

    In all respects an uncalled-for continuation of one of the supposedly worst games ever. Yes, the original was better.

    I honestly don’t know why someone thought Shaq Fu needs to be reborn and how the word “legend” fits the picture. [08/2018, p.86]

    This is a bad game. It’s not worth $20 and, in my opinion, not worth $5, unless you’re the kind of person that would get a kick out of Paris Hilton slut jokes in 2018 and can’t get enough lazy, casual racism.

The jokes that Shaq says out of his mouth are cleverly written and will never get old. The game plays like a 90's arcade beat-em-up that will keep you hooked for hours. Shaq Fu; A Legend Reborn is a title you should not miss out on purchasing.

    As more worthless games come and go, Shaq-Fu is here to stay. Shaq-Fu is possibly the greatest experience created by humans, and for humans.As more worthless games come and go, Shaq-Fu is here to stay. Shaq-Fu is possibly the greatest experience created by humans, and for humans. By combining the likes of Gahndi, Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Fred Figglehorn, you are left with Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn.

    If you haven't played the most sunning human achievement of all time that is this game, don't read ahead, unless you want to ruin your life. Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn follows the story of Shaq Fe-Hung from the Chinese town Hung-Lo. He abandons his mother to fight against the demons that Yen-Lo-Weng has sent to Earth. He trains with his mentor Ye-Ye until he is murdered by the minions of of Yen-Lo-Weng. As Ye-Ye utters his last breath, he tells Shaq that Yen-Lo-Weng has sent demons to Earth disguised as celebrities, and Shaq must kill these celebrities and save humanity. All the characters are so in-depth and brought out to the public. They are so bright with personality, whether it's being caring, or being edgy, or determined enough to save the world, Shaq-Fu has all of it there.

    Along with the riveting and heart-wrenching story, Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn also excels in the aspect of gameplay. Shaq is an outstanding choice for the protaganist of this game and it shows in his personality, attitude, and his gameplay style. He can use multiple attacks and use a super attack, which may have drawn inspiration from Mega Man, but done much better, as Mega Man pales in comparison to this masterpiece of all media and enterntainment. The games focus, as I mentioned, is on Shaq's multiple superhuman abilities to defeat the evil celebrities.

    Plus the presentation is stunning running at 12K on all platform including the Atari 2600. Whoops! It seems as though I forgot to mention that this game is playable on every single games console in existence, while being able to play the same high in technicality controls, gameplay, along with the high definition graphics. Consoles from the Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Gamecube to the XBOX One, Shaq-Fu runs like a dream on all platforms and plays with the same controls while being locked at 10,000 fps.

    Overall Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is definitely the greatest piece of media in the history of all humans. This game will soon hang in a museum, in it's own concealed room, away from the garbage such as the Mona Lisa and Starry Night, on it's own, where it belongs, admired by all, old and young.

    Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn
    Shaq is back
    A Legend Reborn is a 3 hour long beat up game where you play a once ordinary Chinese boy shaquille o niel
    however you weren’t as ordinary as you think
    you have the mark..
    the mysterious birth mark of the chosen on
    So you set out to take down celebrities to get one step closer to taking down yen lo wang as the prophecies have for told…
    And this game is just not fun.
    Shaq Fu tries to do the whole Suda51 thing which is really its only saving grace
    its full of pop culture references, one of the boss battles is against what I’m assuming is kim kardashians butt though in the game shes given a different name.. but we know the truth…
    youll be taking on a number of others here as well that I wont spoil, but every level ends in a boss fight..
    These levels though just drag on forever..
    back to the suda 51 thing.. the constant jokes are the only thing that kept me going through this game..
    however theyre poorly delivered by the game..
    not the voice actors..
    the voice acting is fine, the writing is great..
    it just feels so awkwardly placed in game.. there are never smooth transitions such as moments where shaq breaks the 4th wall to tell the game designer to stop with the endless waves of enemies..
    and I wish he would’ve taken shaqs advice..
    all enemies in every level is pretty much the same enemy with a different skin, and youre mashing buttons punching and kicking filling up a meter to unlock a powerful move rinse and repeat until you get to a boss fight, which is the only fun moments of the game..
    but from the beginning of a level to the boss is just a monotonous grind with the occasional fun moments of being big deiseal or shactus slicing through enemies like warm butter while the game slaps you with some pretty offensive stuff and the occasional icy hot patch
    Shaq Fu A legend reborn is a functioning game but that’s about it..
    its playable though a boss fight against paris Hilton stopped working twice forcing me to restart.
    the ridiculous humor is all this game has going for it.. and with the poor delivery of the humor through the game, saying that is even a stretch,
    I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn
    a 4.5/10

The controls are clunky, the terrible hitboxes annoyed the heck out of me. You can knock the game out in no time. A good few hour session would manage it however it just felt like a chore to finish. I would avoid this, even with the low price tag.
