Flying Dragon is Culture Brain's contribution to the ever-growing karate and kung-fu game genres. While it shares many things in common with earlier hits like Karate Champ and Kung-Fu Master, Flying Dragon introduces a new form of play where the game actually teaches you the moves you need to know.
With play that progresses through training modes, fighting scenes, and a World Championship competition, Flying Dragon has plenty of chop-suey kicks and martial arts thrills.
Flying Dragon has a very strange look and feel. The colors that are used in the game characters appear washed out, and seem to blend in with the background. The control of the game characters is also lacking. The concept is nothing new, and is further muddled dy a lack of direction.
The kung-fu theme of Flying Dragon is overworked. There is no room for an average karate game which this is, especially when comparisons with outstanding titles like Ninja Gai Den are inevitable. While the concept may have been good enough a year ago, it's just not enough to make it now.
Just another karate game.
Flying Dragon is repetitive and not much fun. The control is jerky as well as the scrolling. Besides these problems, however, it is probably my favorite one-on-one kung-fu kick-em-up due to the ease of play and the way the game teaches you how to become more effective in higher rounds.
