A parody on martial arts films from the 1970s, Kung Fu Chaos offers four-player fighting set within six interactive movie sets and an assortment of game modes. Characters can perform exaggerated attacks, blocks, combos, reversals, and finish up with poorly dubbed taunts and dramatic poses. Among the featured cast of oddball characters is roller queen Candi Roll, the samurai duo of Chop & Styx, the determined Ninja Fu Hiya, the vengeful Xui Tan Sour, the immortal Monkey, soulful Lucy Cannon, and costumed wrestler Captain Won Ton.
Kung Fu Chaos offers a total of six play modes for eager combatants, with support for up to four simultaneous players in team or individual competitive formats. As characters advance through the movie sets, which poke fun at such blockbusters as Titanic, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, and more, they will have to battle enemies with their moves and special attacks as well as avoid numerous hazards and traps. Complementing the action is the song "Kung-Fu Fighting" as well as the main theme from the 1973 Bruce Lee classic, Enter the Dragon.
The main mode of play is the Ninja Challenge, a collection of 26 stages introduced by movie director Shou Ting, who also provides pop-up commentary during the six movie sets. The goal for players is to earn a minimum of three stars in each mini-game or movie set challenge, in addition to completing a series of four tutorial lessons on the art of fighting. Players will confront multiple ninjas during each movie challenge, avoid hazards such as falling debris, and partake in mini-games such as leaping over a pipe that swings around in a circular motion.
Other modes of play include Battle Game, a four-player competition against friends or the computer on any of the unlocked stages from the Ninja Challenge; Championship, 12 rounds of kung fu fighting against players or the computer, with each round worth points; Miniseries, a special three-game challenge for each character playable by single players only; Freestyle, which lets players practice fighting for as long as necessary; and Rehearsal, where players can learn specific moves through a series of lessons. Unlockable features such as alternate costumes abound in this chop-socky spoof. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
