Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as Yaiba, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyborg arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over the top abandon. Step into a stylized living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by Yaiba's willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyborg arm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead or just rip off an opponent's arms to use as zombie nun chucks. Both possibilities fill Yaiba's heart with twisted laughter in this upcoming collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and concept's Keiji Inafune.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The Ninja Gaiden series has a reputation for being fun to play, with a balanced level of difficulty (in which, if you invest the time, you can get past any part of the game) and a fulfilled sense of accomplishment (especially those who platinum'd Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2).

However, this spinoff, which puts you in control of Yaiba (and whose mission is to kill...Ryu???) is so plagued by baffling level design, sluggish controls and the mother of all sins in 2014; horrible camera control, that this game quickly becomes an exercise in how much of this you can tolerate to see the end.

In "basic" terms of picking up and playing, it's a hack-and-slash at its foundation. You've got 3 styles of attack, and you'll have overwhelming numbers of enemies thrown at you. Hack, slash and repeat. The graphic style is much different than the Sigma series, taking a cel-shading/artistic view, and it's all very pretty.

Where this game falls apart is the incredible spikes in frustration, mainly do to a few things:
- There's no regenerating health, and even the sub-bosses can kill you in 2-3 shots (let alone the main ones). If you've killed all their cronies (as is standard fare for most of these fights) you cannot get additional health or power-ups for your bar.
- Then, when the boss/sub-boss eventually kills you, you go back to the beginning of the level, as the checkpointing in this game is absolutely atrocious. So guess what? You get to hack and slash through the same enormous groups of enemies until..
- ...you get to the ones that are on the other side of the screen and can relentlessly hit you with lightning. That you cannot block...

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent button masher with a few too many issues July 27, 2014
By D.G.M.
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
I went into Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z with a fair degree of caution and I was prepared for the possibility of it being rather bad due to the overwhelming number of negative reviews, with the only positive reviews here on Amazon proving to be largely unhelpful. Still, my "video gaming OCD" prevented me from completely passing on this one since it's part of a series of games I like. Surprisingly, I found this game to be better than the horrible abomination other reviewers made it out to be. Sure it has issues, but they're weren't quite so bad that I felt the game deserved to be hailed as one of the worst games of all time...believe me, there are far worse games out there. This game opens with an impressive intro showcasing the titular, foul-mouthed ninja, Yaiba Kamikaze, in a duel of blades with main series protagonist, Ryu Hayabusa. After managing to hold his own with the famed Dragon Ninja, Yaiba and his sword are both cut down and he ends up like most who dare to challenge Ryu...dead. Before he knows it, Yaiba is revived as a cyborg ninja with the left side of his head and his whole left arm replaced with mechanical implants, then he's suddenly dropped into a zombie outbreak in the Ukraine. The one who rebuilt him, the full-figured Miss Monday, guides Yaiba through a radio uplink and along with her boss, Alarico Del Gonzo, they convince Yaiba to help them deal with the zombie threat in exchange for getting a chance to kill Ryu Hayabusa, who is also making efforts to deal with the zombies. The story is cohesive and makes sense, but it's not really all that interesting, and the "twist" in the later mission revealing who is responsible for the presence of the zombies is far from surprising. The main focus of the story was simply to give gamers a good laugh... Read more ›

The reason I give it 2 stars is game worth it no it not! Fun game but not very interest it at all so it not worth getting and most of all wait for the prices to drop.

While the overall entertainment won't reach that of the Ninja Gaiden Z the game gives the gamer what they want good action and good gameplay. The game graphics are one of the few that uses cell shaded effects rather then usual graphics and that actually adds a little to the games charm.Expect a lot of gore and plenty of spectacular gory death combos from our main game anti-hero as he is resurrected to a point after having a pretty severe run in with our more well known iconic ninja Ryu Hayabusa and now seeks a rematch with the famous hero though he now is forced to work for the slightly dubious company that brought him back.

The controls and abilities of the character Yaiba are ones we've seen in past Ninja Gaiden games as well as DMC and GOW also expect a great sense of deja vu if you've ever played Resident Evil as you'll get more then your fill of the undead here.

For the price the game turned out to be worth getting but as said by a few others don't expect it to match up to the Ninja Gaiden games if you are then all that you're going to feel is a small bit of disappointment.

I don't know what they were thinking releasing this as a full retail $40+ game.

You can tell it was rushed & the characters & enemies & ai & music
hit detection is off & the comedy is just dumb etc etc
well everything is AWFUL.

this is a spinoff & a "big name" was attached to it just to get people's attentions, but even he recently said he shouldve been more on hands with this.

this was just some bizarro indie game that should've been downloadable for $10 AT MOST.
paying more than $10 for this is CRAZY.
