As a HUGE HUGE fan of the series since its 3D debut, I gotta say, I have really zero reaction to this video, aside from absolutely HATING Ryu's voice.

And it's better this way, believe me. Probably one of the worst brawlers I've ever played. I can say absolutely no positive thing about it. Everything about the fighting engine sucks (timing, counter system, hitboxes, hitstun, feedback of attacks, visual cues etc. - oh and don't expect it to play anything like NG. has nothing to do with it gameplay wise), the locations are bland and repetitive as are the enemies. Story, characters and dialogues are painfully stupid and try so hard with their toilet humour that you get annoyed really fast by it. I'm amazed that anyone could approve and release something like this in it's actual state.

Warning, this is game is 3hours long with cutscenes, it's not worth $60, (Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was 10h+) and the game design in Yaiba is not good, few variety in enemies, and only 3 bosses in the whole game, so cheap, and for people who hate hard games like me, this is hard on easy, I regret buying it, never again, please reviewers don't give this game more than 3/10, I give it 0/10 seriously.

    Megido I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (2 Hours ago)

    Megido @Melmoth: Yeah, but MGS1 has a good balance, 2 and onward doesn't. IMO. (2 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @Megido: I think i'm the minority on this, but the VA for Snake (forgot his name) didn't click with me. (6 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I ca suspend my diabelief for walking tanks and cyber ninjas. Bomb planting fatsos with rocket powered rollerblades is a step too far. (8 Hours ago)
