    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

The fact that it is free has me considering shelving my hatred for this game and giving it a shot. 

Is it worth it for someone who has no plans to purchase DLC?

Absolutely, just been playing it for a while... it's not so bad :D and I feel no need to buy DLC.

I have no first hand experience but a friend of mine was telling me earlier that all the DLC is just skins. So yeah... should be worth trying.

Man I’ve tried and tried to enjoy it. A lot of my friends play it on PS4. I cannot stand it though. Although the way they have avoided a whole pay to win scenario by only visual DLC is admirable and a step in the right direction for gaming in general.

Well, I downloaded it. However, I have to admit, it is unlikely I will ever play it. 

If I were to queue up my games, it would be behind Hyrule Warriors, BotW, Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, Resident Evil Revelations, Skyrim, and FIFA.

Couldn’t have said it better myself

A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y!!! I mean even though it's free I wouldn't get it straight away especially given the low storage on the Switch SD card. I'd be too busy with BofTW or Odyssey to be playing Fortnite. Still I don't have a Switch so I shouldn't worry about this stuff too much.
