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.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (2 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (3 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (4 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (7 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (9 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I definitely worry about the focus testing approach they take and the appeal to everyone thing, but I'd also love to hear more from insiders. (13 minutes ago)
