Really Bad

Fun concept poor execution

This game wasn't worth playing. It took all the frustrating and not fun parts of ninja gaiden and stripped away everything that made it fun and worth playing.

The game wants you to use combos and block/counter with precision but the controls do not allow it. It is a button mashing game up until the bosses so you get no real practice through out the game.

I have never said "This is so stupid and frustrating" so many times while playing before.

You can beat the game in 1 day if you power through the frustration but it isn't worth it. Skip it, you have been warned!

Straight... Awful...

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.

this game had zombies thats why i rented it. but when a game is too much like a game i get board i like open world mayhem. the levels were too small and the fighting was too much like mortal combat too many combos and no satisfaction.
