Conclusion: Unfortunately, I was wrong. Full of offensive, juvenile, and flat-out bad jokes, Yaiba is a lot less funny then I thought it would be. And the gameplay ranges from slightly enjoyable button mashing, to infuriating cheaply designed brawls against hordes of tough enemies.
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...
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?
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...
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
Excerpt: Серия слэшеров Ninja Gaiden всегда была эдакой «законодательницей моды» в своем жанре – таковой она была даже тогда, когда игры сериала были еще платформерами, и выходили на 8-ми битных приставках.
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.
Excerpt: Euch war Ninja Gaiden zu lahm? Nicht genug Blut? Kein Problem, denn Team Ninja legt mit Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z eins drauf. Oder sogar zwei. Diesmal aber spielt nicht nur als Ryu Hayabusa, sondern als Yaiba, der auf einem Rachefeldzug gegen Ryu geschickt wird.
