Way of the Passive Fist starts out strong with an interesting concept, but that interest soon wears off thanks to poor execution. Once you've played the first chapter you've pretty much played all 10 as there is never any variation on offer. Combine this with the fundamental flaws of basing the gameplay purely around blocking and dodging and you have a recipe for a promising and unique but ultimately disappointing game.

Way of the Passive Fist is an interesting title that offers a great deal to those who fully get on board with it, but its repetitive nature and demanding difficulty means that they will be few. Its 16-bit visuals and pumping soundtrack will take gamers like myself back to the glory days of the side-scrolling beat 'em up genre, but its gameplay proves to be much more progressive and divisive.

But despite a reimagining, this genre shows its inherent limitations. It can get quite repetitive, even with the occasional boss battle to break up the monotony. Finishing the Story Mode unlocks Arcade Mode, but that's simply a score attack and challenge mode that just demands more of the same. Way of the Passive Fist is a fun diversion for an afternoon, with the Story Mode coming in at about four hours, but there isn't much reason to keep wandering beyond that.
