Not horrible, but not great

Summary: A game most will immediately look at and call mediocre. In some ways I agree. The story is bad and there are some things that make absolutely no sense. Characters aren't very likable and the villains are pretty lame. The stealth aspect is still there though. If you've played the first game on PS2 or any of the Tenchu games then you know what to expect. Sneak up on enemies in various ways and kill them. It works and it works pretty well.
Great spiritual successor to Tenchu but controls hurt it.

Summary: This game is developed by Acquire the same one's who did the original Tenchu games beginning on the Playstation 1. If you are familiar with Tenchu then this is basically what it is. For those unfamiliar, its basically a 3rd person Ninja stealth game where the gameplay involves a lot of sneaking and stealth kills. This game also includes mixing components to create items to help you on your missions.
Summary: If you like Tenchu, add another star to the score. Shinobido 2 is a stealth action game very much in the same vein. The game is set in an area called Utakata that is in the midst of a civil war. However, oddly, it isn't actually all that focused on the warring factions, but instead centers around Zen the Spider Lily and his quest for revenge against a rival ninja known as Shu the Cypress. As far as stories go it is functional, but certainly more could have been done.
Summary: This game is very okay, the story is servicable and the gameplay is pretty solid. The game uses a mission based system where you choose missions from three different warlords, and occasoinaly villagers or even bears,and the occasional story mission. After about an hour of play you've seen pretty much all the enviroments in the game, minus one or two towards the end. The missions are fairly varried, but they also start to get repetitive.
Excerpt: Não sei vocês, mas eu fiquei completamente decepcionado com esse título da Acquire. Com um enredo fraco, péssima inteligência artificial e um monte de quests aleatórias e muitas vezes sem sentido, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen está longe de ser digno de levar o nome da empresa. Trocando em miúdos, existem títulos melhores para gastar o seu rico dinheirinho.
Summary: Ifall du gillar ninjor eller japansk mytologi så tycker jag helt klart att du ska ge det här spelet en chans. Om du däremot föredrar skjutspel eller spel med mycket humor så bör du skaffa något annat spel till Playstation Vita.Av mig får spelet 3/5.Det är inte det bästa spelet till Playstation Vita men det är fortfarande underhållande.
Summary: Videospiele mit historischen Setting haben in den letzten Jahren vermehrt Beliebtheit erfahren. Auch im Land der aufgehenden Sonne ist dieser Trend nicht vorüber gegangen, wobei vor allem jene Zeiten als Kulisse genommen werden, in denen in Japan noch Samurai und das ShÅgunat das Sagen hatten. Eines dieser Spiele ist die Fortsetzung eines durchaus stimmigen, wenn auch nicht ganz fehlerfreien PSP-Spieles: „Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen“.
