Like its second-fiddle protagonist, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z resides in the shadow of many other better third-person action games, but it’s not terrible if you’re specifically looking for a schlocky Saturday.
Harsh critics,you can say what you want about the storyline but gameplay is extremely fun. I really enjoyed the game and highly recommend anyone who is looking for a cyberpunk ninja hack and slash game.
A gaiden to the Ninja Gaiden series, which takes some getting used to, but this is an action game that has the play feel of the old Devil May Cry games with a new face. It also has loads of zombie comedy which are quite hilarious if you go into the game acknowledging that the game is meant to be different from your average Ninja Gaiden. This is the type of action game that classic gamers should drool over. Whether or not a fan of the series it is definitely worth checking out.
To fully enjoy the game you need to get through the game once and power yourself up to use the vast combos available for a second play through.
My only real vice with the game is the Trophies are far from creative or interesting.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z does some decent things right like the cel-shaded comic book narrative… and well, that’s about it. I wouldn’t suggest this for a fan of the Ninja Gaiden franchise or for someone who enjoys speedy action platformers.
There are some decent things going on in Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. The cel-shaded art style is appealing, the dialogue and cutscenes are occasionally entertaining, and even the combat is fun at times. But the frustrating camera, aggravating controls and a nonsensical story that only briefly touches upon the themes of the series, weigh this spinoff title down too much for it to be enjoyable.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a dismal waste of a good idea. Painfully unfunny, graphically abhorrent, and straight-up disheveled in the combat department, this manages to be one of the worst games of the last generation, right at the very end of it.
+ Cool badass characters, nice cutszenes+anime style, very bloody, a lot of moves/skills, short but good entertaining story
- Unfavorable camera angle, hard to master for beginners, sometimes laggy in fights with hoards of zombies
Conclusion: Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is not so bad as most of the reviewers scored it. It´s a very violent game, with cool characters and a short story of retribution with 2 members of a ninja clan (one of them is a sociopath). Also the next characters works good in this piece of violence. The sound is good with nice voices of all actors/enemy and the score is techno based, all around a good Ninja (Cel Shading) Gaiden in my eyes, who earned more than a 7.0 Score.
The game itself is punishing difficult for beginners who attempt to play it on Normal. After getting to the second level I changed to easy and started having a lot more fun. It's still challenging, but not in the punishing way Normal difficulty was. After playing, learning the mechanics, especially the block and counter. I really did like this game. Not sure it deserves a 20 by other reviewers. But if they were having a hard time they could just switch to easy. It does take some time to learn the mechanics but afterwards I had a fun experience.
Intento de dar una vuelta de tuerca a la saga, tal vez valiente y muy precipitado. Cell shadin muy sobresaturado, la historia no vale nada. El juego es cortísimo, unas 4 horas, creo, pero eso si, tiene una dificultad muy elevada hasta en los niveles bajos de dificultad. A mi me resulto muy aburrido.
Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z was the worst Hack'n Slash zombie style-action game. It was really bad! And it's like you play pretty much the same game every goddamn year, just like Call of Duty. No inspirations, no nothing!
SummaryThe ninja are the most elite of warriors, exercising unparalleled skill, precision, and lethality for centuries. Only the most deadly candidates are given the rare and coveted opportunity to join the clan. The final test of a ninja
