1-4 Players (Multi Tap Adaptable) Vibration Function Compatible 1 Disc Includes 3 Exclusive Wu-Tang Music Rap meets raw combat in Wu-Tang Clan: Shaolin Style, a violent fighting game that plays a lot like a '70s kung-fu flick--with a little Mortal Kombat thrown in. Members of the rap group Wu-Tang Clan are present and ready to mix it up. RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Method Man--they're all here, each with his own special shaolin fighting abilities. The soundtrack, which is sure to score points with fans of the rappers, provides background music for battle arenas set in Staten Island, New York, and ancient China. Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style also features three new exclusive Wu-Tang tracks. The cantankerous Wu-Tang Clan members meld perfectly into the video game world, and each character has some truly flashy moves. GZA wields a microphone on a chain-blade chord. Raekwon's specialty is cooking up opponents in a large boiling vat. Other members use a more traditional approach with swords and acrobatics. Although the game is a little slow and repetitive at times, it's dripping with raw street style and attitude--which should be enough to keep Wu-Tang fans happy while appeasing fighting game fans in general. Up to four players can fight at once. (Parents should note that this is one of the more violent fighting games on the market.) --Bill Hutchens Pros:Wicked combos with devastating effectsGood mix of pulsating rap rhythmsInteresting interactive arenasCons:Control is sometimes slow and clunkySlightly unbalanced; some characters easily overpower others Product description This posting is for a BRAND NEW FACTORY SEALED - "WU-TANG: SHAOLIN STYLE" game for the original Sony Playstation (or PS1).

Review From Midway's 1983 arcade game based on the band Journey to Sega's Make Your Own Music Video series on the Sega CD, companies have been trying - usually in vain - to tie the recording industry and the gaming industry together in ways deeper than merely featuring an artist on a game's soundtrack. Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style takes the concepts of the Wu mythos, rife with influences from tons of 1970s kung-fu films, and turns it into a four-player arena fighting game with supernatural powers and bloody fatalities. The game's story is told through a few prerendered cutscenes. It seems that the last living Wu-Tang master, Xin, is hiding out on Staten Island, where he has nine pupils (the Wu-Tang Clan - or Rza, Genius, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, Master Killa, U-God, Ol' Dirty Bastard, and the Method Man, in case you forgot). Mong Zhu, an evil warlord, feels that he could rule the world if only he knew the ancient secrets of the Wu-Tang discipline. So he heads to New York and captures Xin. It's up to you, as one of the nine members of the multiplatinum-rap-group-turned-martial-arts-masters, to give chase and stop Mong Zhu. The one-player mode puts you through numerous levels, but more important than completing levels is earning all 36 chambers. Each chamber is achieved by completing a specific task, such as performing four throws in a match, using a new fatality, executing a tech roll, pulling off a ten-hit combo, beating several levels in a row without continuing, and visiting bonus stages. As you put together strings of related chambers, you'll unlock secrets, such as hidden characters, extra fatalities, concept art, and bonus costumes. The bonus costumes are really strange. ODB turns into a clown, Method Man turns into a guy holding a Final Fantasy-sized sword, and Genius becomes a leather-clad woman who, of course, still speaks in the Gza's gruff voice. The 36th chamber is earned by beating the game's final boss, but you can't face him until you've earned the first 35. Some chambers (blocking six hits in a row) are really easy to complete, but certain characters simply aren't very good at getting eight-, nine-, or ten-hit combos. So it's not unheard of to get 28 or 30 chambers and have to spend hours trying to jugg
