There are a number of great beat-em-ups to choose from on Xbox Live Arcade, including X-Men The Arcade Game, The Simpsons Arcade and, of course, the always favorable Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But folks out there might be seeking something a little more contemporary when it comes to beating people to a pulp, and that's where QOOC Soft's Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise comes in.

There's more satisfaction to it than we first expected, but it isn't quite the noble warrior it could've been.

They were there all your life, have always been welcome for Christmas, and once in a while you have a good old silly dispute over playing Zelda with a nunchunk. But down the line, just like a family member, we love and respect them. They have been the backbone of the industry for many years and have influenced it in more ways that we can count.
