First 10 minutes PC Xbox 360 PS3

Sometimes it is difficult for us to make videos, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a good example. One of the most uninteresting games of the old generation to say the least. Here are two videos of the game, do not ask for more, please!
Note: This copy of the game was sent to us by Xbox.

My main reason i gave this game a time of my life to bother checking videos was to see Ryu in action, there is only 1 real fight with him, too bad you dont play as him.

Though the arcade mode is pretty cool, they used the famous NG NES music tunes (original, no remake) as BGM during the levels which was nice for NG fans.

My only hope for Yaiba was for it to have an awesome combat mechanic, but since from every review I've read that's not the case, not worth anyone's time.

Atleast now that this crap is out, hopefully Team ninja can focus all their manpower on NG4 for next-gen :P

Eh actually I enjoyed the combat to some extent; kinda like Dynasty Warrior + NG, tbh. But the godawful camera and practically everything else made playing this game a chore. Pity, this being Team Ninja's debut on PC and all.

They should have released the Xbox and Xbox 360 generations' Ninja Gaiden games on PC, if Metal Gear Rising sold very well on PC, no reason why Ninja Gaiden wouldn't. Same with Platinum Games' Vanquish and Bayonetta. =(

Instead they decided to waste money, time and "creativity" on Yaiba.

I played the first level or two and never touched it again. It's an even more boring version of Dynasty Warriors

Team Ninja didn't develop Yaiba. That being said, considering how poor NG3 turned out to be for most fans, not sure a fourth episode is going to be worth the wait.

No they didnt, but didnt they have some sort of an involvement since i kept seeing Hayashi from TN in some dev diaries?
Also i agree NG3 was shit, but NG3 RE was great (with two annoying issues attached from NG3). If they learned how much fail NG3 was and why they did Razors Edge to begin with, i dont think they would/will do the same mistake as NG3 again.

Ugh NG3:RE was great? No........It is was an improvement tho. Coming up from shit only made it decent in the end. The game needed to be bombed and started from scratch. I don't have any faith in the studio to make the this series great again. As far as im concerned, all the relevant talent within Team Ninja jumped ship with Itagaki. Saying all this, I'll always check for a new NG game. Just won't get my hopes up. And this game Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is mediocre.

It was great "compared" to NG3 vanilla a good/more playable improvement, but no it wasent great as a stand alone NG, but neither was NG2 (outside the combat system).
But as a NG fanboy i will buy NG4 on ps4 regardless lol, i just hope its not as bad as NG3 vanilla lol

Just let NG series rest, Yaiba is an embarassment, even if it's boasting the "spin-off" excuse.

    MrWhite Aye that's a bit of a daft statement. How else are they going to deliver their so called service? They need to shift hardware before they can sell you anything. (12 Hours ago)

    alimokrane one time purchase of a console when they can sell you a $15 to $20 sub each month and keep you for years? They are hitting both the console, handheld and mobiles gaming segments all at once! (15 Hours ago)

    alimokrane Game Pass is an incredible value for money right now and I cant see anyone who is already subscribed to it, not continuing if they keep the games coming. Why would they care about a $500 .... (15 Hours ago)

  • alimokrane

    alimokrane published original content available on Game Pass. Delaying Halo Infinite to achieve that is more important than launching the console itself. Microsoft is playing on a whole other level now. (15 Hours ago)
