Haha! Nice one, Marc. This game sounds right up my alley. I played the NES version, but I don't recall what my opinion of it was. It was a rental ages ago and pretty much runs together with the other 1245453478647 NES and SNES games I rented at the time.

If you've played any Hudson game from the period, you'll know what to expect in terms of graphics: kaleidoscopic colours and cartoonish black outlines. If you’re in the mood for lighthearted adventure, the striking hues will do well to draw you in. But colourful cartoon backdrops are old hat for these guys, the creators of Bomberman -- the awesome music is the real surprise here. The orchestration is far more complex than you might expect, and many of the tunes are extremely infectious. Jaunty and distinctly Asian-flavoured, they’re fitting for a game named after the all-time Kung Fu comedy king-cum-superman of stunt work.

I liked this paragraph because it succinctly summed up the audio-visual aspects of the game. I think this is something other publications struggle to do.

Again, great review!

Thanks Joe. I only wish I could find the time to be more productive. Right now, if I write one review for every 27.5 reviews you write--well, that's downright prolific by my standards. ^_^

Great review! This isn't the first time since I've been reviewing games that I've read something that made me want to play this game, but I can't remember for the life of me what the other thing I read could have been.

Thanks, Rob. The game is surprisingly fun. I hope Hudson releases it on PS3 so I can play it on my PSP on the way to work!

Emp: flying Jackie? You've outdone yourself.

Good job on this review.

That score description is the best thing I've ever seen. Finally, someone has outdone the "Tumble Weed Of Boredom".

Haha. This game sounds awesome. Great review. I kind of wish I had a Turbo now so I could play it, which is funny because I'm usually not much of a fan of action games, but this one sounds epic. Haha.

Fun fact: whenever I think of Jackie Chan, I think of the cartoon, not the movies (as I've never actually seen them...). This game reminds me strongly of the cartoon, though Jackie didn't have any crazy energy techniques there, haha. I think I briefly played one of the GBA Jackie Chan games once and also found it similar to the cartoon. Of course, this could have just been the art style, which wouldn't be surprising since many portable and older games have cartoony graphics to begin with, but still, I find the comparison amusing.
