ABSTRACT
This article provides information about several computer games. Wu-Tand: Shaolin Style is pretty much like Mortal Kombat, Wu-Tang Edition, with the individual clan members bringing the ruckus to each other. Characters were indistinct, moves were so over-the-top violent that the end of a fight looked more like a badly pixellated dissection than a triumphant finale. Button-mashing beginners could hammer the daylights out of anyone silly enough to try and master any kind of complex strategy. The Warriors seems like only yesterday that the last gang movie to feature realistic white bad guys was in cinemas. Okay, so it was more like 25 years ago. Details are tighter than a coiled spring, but the easiest route would be to make the game a stage-based succession of mass combat bouts as the Warriors battle to get home from a gang enclave that goes horribly wrong. In Def Jam, people take a generic wrestler and battle some of the finest stars in random, including Busta Rhymes, Method Man, even Public Enemy's Flava Flav.
