Horrible

Failure mechanics Ruin a potentially fun game.

There is no reason a boss fight of three stages with a camera angel that looks like it belongs in a PS1 title should be released in this day and age. The game's final fight is unnecessarily complicated, with no hint and even when you do figure it out the enemies will simply stun lock/chain combo you into a never ending loop that you cannot counter and is not able to be blocked. Once your health has been depleted you are forced to start back at the previous checkpoint, which means having to do the entire fight and it's broken mechanics over again. When firing the bile bombs at the final boss during laser eye sequence he will have invulnerability frames and if he moves at even the slightest angle then you will lose the target thus making that entire round of waiting on him to fire the lasers after acquiring said weapon useless. Let's not even get into some of the other detection and recognition mechanics that this game has failed to yield proper results, in short remove from your gameQ or send it back ASAP so that you do not waste time or part of your monthly subscription on this game.

This game is probably the worst hack n slash I have ever picked up. It's like Lollipop Chainsaw mixed with the worst God of War formula ever. No flow to the fighting what so ever and you don't even get the feeling that you're hurting the zombies. You just mash X, Triangle, and Circle until Yaiba randomly stops and press L2 when you see a tiny exclamation point above an enemy's head. Disposable weapon system is also really dumb because of the way you obtain them. The game tries to be a mix between funny and bad azz but it just comes off as trying too hard. The old Ninja Gaiden's were amazing, but this spin off is just trash. No wonder Ryu killed Yaiba.
