We're not sure what it is with all these rappers thinking they're kung fu experts. It would be patently ridiculous in any other musical genre.
Imagine Willie Nelson extolling the virtues of capoeira, or Mumford & Sons taking up mixed martial arts.
Actually, the thought of England's bland-rock champions taking an elbow to the windpipe is rather appealing.
Anyway, here we are with Way of the Dogg, which features none other than Snoop Dogg as a kick-ass kung fu guru.
It's a Dogg beat hoodlum world
This isn't a beat-'em-up, though. Rather, it's a rhythm-action game where the actual fighting is simply the backdrop for some phat beats from Mr Dogg and plenty of rhythmic dot-bashing from you, the player.
A competent and polished beat-matching game in which the core action isn't quite snappy or compelling enough to make a dope impression
