Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Strategy Informer
21 April 2014
  • Conclusion: And that's just the tip of the ice berg. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is practically a parade of irritating design choices and programming. From the horrible fixed camera, to the aggravatingly generic techno soundtrack, this is a game that does absolutely not deserve the full price tag it has been released with. This is disgusting, not only because the game is about 5 hours long, but because those 5 hours are also too long.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Review: Hayabusted

GameZone
19 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The modern Ninja Gaiden games have always been billed as punishing, controlling-throwing experiences, yet even after my tenth or twentieth attempt to defeat a boss went sour, I didn’t curse or kick a hole in my TV. I laughed. Yes, I was mad, but it wasn’t because the game was unfair, it was because I had made mistakes. I tried again, not out of pride, but because I was having a good time getting outplayed by Team Ninja and their crafty AI.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Thunderbolt Games
15 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Yaiba is dumb. You play as the titular antihero who’s out to kill normal series protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. But make no mistake, this is a Ninja Gaiden game in name only, save for the punishing level of difficulty and an absurd plot. Realistically, Yaiba is just the latest misfire in a long line of idiotic Japanese games – Yaiba was developed by the Western studio Spark Unlimited but co-designed by Team Ninja and Keiji Inafune’s Comcept – designed to pander to a Western...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Cheat Happens
9 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I like the think that there's a glass "In case of emergency, break glass" box somewhere in every video game studio used specifically for when a franchise starts to grow stale. Inside is the box is a piece of paper with only two words - "add zombies." It worked for Call of Duty right? Unfortunately though it doesn't for the Ninja Gaiden series; but it could have.

Team Ninja Gets Around To The Zombie Trend

Game Informer
18 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Concept: A Ryu-hating cyber ninja battles zombies Graphics: The cartoony art style sets it apart from the main Ninja Gaiden series Sound: Dialogue is essentially all pervy one-liners Playability: The battle system works well, but it can be easy to lose track of your character in larger battles Entertainment: Don’t be afraid to crank it down to easy mode for a dumb, fun first playthrough.

Review: Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Press-Start
10 April 2014
  • Conclusion: A complete disgrace to the Ninja Gaiden franchise, Yaiba is yet another wonderful notch on Spark Unlimited's reputation as one of the worst developers in the AAA market. The visuals are neat but unoriginal, and I cannot think of a single reason to bother playing or purchasing this mess.
  • Pros: The cel-shade looks nice for about a minute, It's playable I guess?
  • Cons: Pathetic story writing and humour, Gameplay is completely devoid of fun, An utter disgrace to the Ninja Gaiden franchise

El ninja del más acá

  • Excerpt: Hay varias formas de analizar Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z . La más obvia, y quizás la más erronea es hacerlo con cualquiera de los Ninja Gaide n anteriores en la cabeza. Mal. La propuesta de Team Ninja , Tecmo Koei y Spark Unlimited no pretende seguir precisamente esa estela, sino marcar su propio camino con un nuevo estilo de juego a medio camino entre el beat´em up exigente y el machacabotones de cualquier Dynasty Warriors .

Vilipendio di cadavere

  • Excerpt: C'era una volta un ninja di nome Ryu Hayabusa, formidabile guerriero di una stirpe millenaria nonché principale esponente del nobile Clan del Falco: un eroe mascherato dal fascino ieratico, più a suo agio nel parlare con la sua implacabile katana che non con le parole. C'era una volta Ninja Gaiden, action game dalla reputazione leggendaria nonché paradigma di un genere intero: un franchise riverito e rispettato per la sua giocabilità chirurgica e per il suo combat system...

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z - Análise

Brasil Gamer
10 September 2014
  • Conclusion: Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z é uma boa proposta, mas poderia oferecer cenários mais acessíveis e exploráveis, gráficos mais elaborados e um sistema de combate mais equilibrado. Os quebra-cabeças são muito fracos e desnecessários. Apesar desses problemas, o jogo diverte com seu senso de humor e hordas de zumbis para serem dilaceradas. Algo suficiente para passar algumas horas com o jogo, improvisando armas com peças de adversários mortos.

Expert Review

Everyeye Network
10 April 2014
  • Summary: Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z debutta ufficialmente all'E3 2013. Allo stand Tecmo Koei abbiamo prima provato con mano uno dei primi livelli di gioco, quindi abbiamo incontrato una delegazione di sviluppatori. Il gioco ci è parso dotato di una spiccata personalità, ottenuta dall'incontro tra i comic americani e la tradizione ninja nipponica: Yaiba è trasformato in cyborg dopo essere stato passato a fil di spada nientemeno che da Ryu Hayabusa.
