Now that I have this game I have to try it and see if it's really as bad as you guys say it is.

It is! Run away now! Karateka might look good in screenshots or even video but it just controls terribly. Don't believe me? See what Classic Game Room said about it:



The 7800 game you need in your life is this:

Karateka's problem is not in the looks department but with the controls.  That's why I said that it just needs to be hacked to have that addressed.  The lag kills it.

So I noticed on the side of my 7800 there's a big square hole where you can see right inside the console. I wondered what it was so after a little digging I found out on early models there was a expansion port there but when Jack came along he got rid of it to cut costs. I try to keep my consoles as dust free as possible but I have to imagine a lot of stuff can get inside a hole that big. Just wondering if there's supposed to be a cover there or is that the way they came? If there wasn't a cover what do you guys do? Guess a piece of tape would work if nothing else.

Yep, uses the same case design. Don't have it on PAL models though.
