VGW Review: Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen

VGW: The Shinobido series is a strange beast. After Aquire gained fame for Tenchu and the rights were bought by rival developer From Software, the company sought to keep its fans of ninja stealth action by developing a separate series centered on the same gameplay mechanics and principles. As a result, Shinobido: Way of the Ninja was born, but both the original for the PS2 and the PSP sequel never made it to North American shores. Now, with the launch of the Playstation Vita, North American ninja fans finally have the chance to play a Shinobido title with Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen. But was the wait worth it? (PS Vita, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen) 2.5/5

Huh, from the demo it seems really fun... A little rough around the edges, but it really satisfied my Tenchu lusting lol (as it should based on the developers).

Let the demo sate your appetite. You'll be bored with the entire game. (and I say that as a big fan of Acquire)

Ouch, that's too bad... I always loved the original Tenchu games and have been a fan of Way of the Samurai despite its general low scorings. I guess I could always pick it up when it's cheaper later on down the road.
