Shinobido 2: The Revenge of Zen

Just a quick reminder, Shinobido 2 was released today for the PSVita. Some ninja stealth action while waiting for the next Tenchu can never hurt. If you get the game let us know what you think!

  1. Got it day one along with my PSVita.Here is my opinion:
    Well i really enjoy it!It is very fun.I just completed it.But prepare to be dissapointed for something.The Story is so-so,the cutscenes are bad and the VoiceActing sometimes horrible.The Storyline really needs work.On the other hand I didn’t have any problem with the controls and the gameplay is really fun.But ofcourse Tenchu is wayy WAY better!

    • Maybe the main problem is the game is terrible short and one pattern.
      I heard from Japanese review site that you can beat it in 15 minutes, if you know the enemies pattern.

  2. I bought it day one as well. It’s actually my only Vita game at the moment. It’s not a bad game at all. Camera gets wonky, combat is mediocre at best, and the camera is iffy but other than that it’s a great experience.

    But in all honesty, I like the first game more. This one is short and unlike the first game this one doesn’t give you any reason to actually manipulate all three of the fuedal lords. They actually seem to discourage it. The alchemy system is thankfully simplified but there is no real reason to use a majority of the stuff you can create.

    Still, it’s a fun game and should give anyone their ninja fix. There are 17 unique stealth kill animations and beautiful maps. There are also something like 13 mission types. The two characters have 4 costumes each and there are 46 unlockable skins. Getting all of the unlockables can take some time.

    It can get a bit repetitive since the game uses a day to day system instead of a level system like Tenchu. But like I said, it’s a fun game. In fact, it’s great when it comes to stealth. If you can get past the shoddy combat then there really isn’t a reason Tenchu fans wouldn’t get a kick out of it.

  3. It’s no Tenchu to be sure, but it’s not a bad substitute. I suppose if you look at it as a game by itself it’s not that great at all, but for people like us who crave that stealth-action fix, it does the job.
