Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Review - All Things Xbox

Kevin John Kennedy of All Things Xbox writes: "What happened to the Ninja Gaiden franchise? Back in 2004 when the franchise was revived, it felt like such a breath of fresh air. It was difficult, rewarding and original. The sequel may not have improved anything, but was still a fun addition to the series. Ninja Gaiden 3, the first game not directed by Tomonobu Itagaki, was also the first major fumble with repetitive enemies and design. For Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, instead of looking at what was wrong with that entry and improving upon it, Team Ninja, along with Spark Unlimited (Lost Planet 3) and Comcept (Might No. 9) decided to fumble the series even more with this joylessly repetitive and unrewarding game which proves that the series left the true tenants of the franchise behind a long time ago." (PS3, Xbox 360, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z) 4/10

Not as bad as it's being made out to.

I'd put it in a similar camp with Deadpool.

Jeez, game is not great but it's not THAT bad... at least not on the PC version. The humour is definitely right up my alley and the kills are quite satisfying so really, it's not GoW but it's fun... and super difficult!

I played the game and even though it is frustrating and has childish humor it wasn't that bad and once you get Yaiba powered up and his combos down it actually becomes very enjoyable.

The 2D beat-em up extra game is awesome too.

I give it more of a 6/10.

Whomever dismisses this game has no idea what they are talking about. I'll leave it at that. This game is fun to play and its funny. Blazing fast and adrenaline filled. Its simply not worth $65, bring it to $20 and winner it is!
but these 1 and 4 out of 10 are bonkers.
