The Mark of Kri User Reviews
A hybrid of espionage action and brutal hack and slash combat
A hell of an atmosphere in terms of stealth
Great voice acting
Sound effects sound cool
Storyline, while simple, works well for this sort of game
Somewhat shallow gameplay
Not much replay value to be had
Soundtrack doesn't stick out much, even from an atmospherical point of view
The Mark of Kri is a game not too many people talk about. I mean, yeah, it was one of the more hyped up and talked about games in 2002, but eventually became a forgotten gem. Gee, could it be because of games that rip this off? Shadow of Rome and God of War, maybe? Well, whoever or whatever it was, it made this game slip under everyone's radars, only to be a collector's item. For shame...
The game centers around a barbaric mute warrior known as Rau, and his bird Kuzo. Rau trains in the art of the warrior for...some reason I guess. In the game, he basically starts as a sort-of mercenary who h...
.Tons Of Action
.Provides A Very Decent Challenge For All Players
.Lots Of Extras and Goodies To Unlock
.Provides A Tutorial Before Every Level
.New Style of Gameplay
.Unique Fighting Style
.The Game Is A Bit Too Short
.The Game Only Has 4 Weapons Rau can Fight With
This game overall is very good. It provides a very decent challenge. Though there are only only 6 levels, each level is long enough so to be equivalent to the lengths of other games. The game features several attack combos Rau can use with the 4 weapons: Sword, Bow(No Attack Combos, only Used For Dispatching Enemies At a Range), Taiaha(Spear), and Axe:
.Fua Toko Rutu
.Fua Toko Faahu
.Fua Usu Rutu
.Fua Usu Faahu
*Press R1 to defend against an attack from any direction.
Each weapon has its good and bad.
Good: A very fast attacking weapon, giving enemies little time to block between at...
Innovative and smart controls, stealth kills that would make a ninja take notice, great levels, fun extras and a sweet interesting story line.The bad:
Linear gameplay. Once the axe is gained, kind of loses it's awesome stealth focus. The arenas are poke out your eyes hard. Disarming the fat guy and dropping the axe bomb on his head with his own weapon. Damn that boy is bad.Summary:
Great graphics, good sound, and superb gameplay make MoK a solid game for anybody's PS2 library. The stealth kills alone provide endless amusement and the extras provide lots of opportunities to replay the game...especially the harder challenges involving stealth killing multiple opponents. Just an all around great game with no glaring problems that is fun to play and fun to watch.
Beautifull Graphics, Large levels with interactive invirements. Good framerate. Compelling Storyline.The bad:
Short game, makes you long for more.Summary:
The game takes you through nine different levels, where inbetween each you will learn new skills and gain new weapons.
The fighting system is easy to use and fun to watch, with varied special attacks. You can also lock onto and fight upto 9 enemies at once. Allowing for some spectacular fight scenes.
Each level is far different from the first, and has you only guessing what will be next. They make you think about usefull strategies, while also letting you let loose and slash swords.
The game is definatly a good fighting adventure game, that I recommend for anybody. I also can't wait to see it...
-great fighting system
-nice level mapping
Well the mark of kri is a great game. There is a new style of fighting and lots of killing. Only 4 weapons to chose from but you dont really need more. The levels are really long and there are no real "Boss" fights. The stroy is great and has a good ending(IMO). if you like games where you can chop peoples heads off you should get this.
-unique(in a good way)battle controls
-those hand drawn cinematics kicked ass
-not long enough
-levels are a bit too long
-more weapons would be nice
-sometimes it's hard to move your character
Overall this is a great game.Needs alot more levels and weapons though(only has six levels and four weapons) but still a great game
