This could have been something grand; a chance to create something fun, fresh, and play off of how bad the first game was – much like the trailer tells you it will. Instead what we get is bad 90’s humor that didn’t grow up, slapped with a fresh coat of paint and told it’s edgy. I wanted this game to be a success, I wanted it to be as fun as the trailer made it out to be, but I don’t know the last time I played a game which made me prefer the option of turning off my console and going outside.
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, like Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back, is a nostalgic joke taken too far. Though there are postivies in the presentation, the gameplay is laborious, even draining. Shaq Fu outstays its welcome, despite its meagre run-time, which is far more offensive than its juvenile attempts at "edgy" comedy. Shaq should've known better than to put his name to this, and everyone should've known better than to put money into its creation.
Shaq’s various kicks and punches are remarkably not fluid either. He moves with the same lack of grace and rhythm that he did in his prime years in the NBA, but without four championship rings to show for it. At the end of the day, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is a cautionary tale. Jokes are not funny just because you say them.
