Firstly, my computer is up-to-date in every way--software & hardware; as well as, my computer exceeds the requirements needed to run this game.

That being said, I can't recommend this game on account of, the Video options is broken. If I go to the Video settings and change anything, once I press "esc" to apply the changes, the game crashes.

I've tried many of the suggestions I've found to get the game running without crashing after I change Video settings; however, none of them worked for me.

Note: This game did run for me just-so-long-as, I keep the Video settings set at the low default settings; however, I like to turn all my video settings to the highest settings that I can for my system. The game shouldn't crash if I want to change settings that were put into the game by the developer.

Unfortunately, I had to refund this game.

Did you ever think, "Hey I need a game that mixes a bit of Far Cry Blood Dragon with God of War and the art style of someone on PCP? Yeah Me either but I'm glad someone did think of it. Game is pretty solid as a beat 'em up with the humor style of Blood Dragon. Not sure if it warrants a full price but if you can get it on sale do so.

Classic hack-and-slash action in a cel-shaded/comic-book style. Definitely not a traight-up Ninja Gaiden game, but a superb spin-off, especially when you stop and take the time to look at all the humour (breakdancing zombies, ripping off clown arms and weaponizing them as "nun-chuckles", and so much more).

360 Joypad compatible, and features both a side-scroller version of the game, tons of laughs, and most of all, the ability to play through the game (after completion) dressed as a schoolgirl.

Not a bad game but has its issues.

The good:
This is a hack-n-slash game with a combo and counter system, it's fun in the way that you fight a small group of enemies and have some options for killing them. Between areas the story is filled in by brief dialog with other characters over a communications system; it reminds me of early video games back before unnecessary cut scenes were put into games. The story isn't terribly deep but I didn't mind, it's cheap fun. I played through on easy difficulty because I'm trying to cut through my backlog, it was easy but I actually enjoyed it. I guess it took me around 7 hours to complete, but I'm not really sure I completed it...

The bad:
It can be buggy. I'm pretty sure I beat the final boss, but it would crash probably before the final cut scene or whatever was supposed to be shown. I had modified the config to allow higher frame rates and disable intro videos, but I allowed that to be reverted, I checked game cache, and rebooted and the issue persisted. Other than that, if you do run it over 60FPS, there may be some areas you'll get stuck but the game saves so often that you should be able to exit, revert the changes you made to the INI file and continue. In the tutorial (beginning), it stopped letting me block/counter, not sure if that was a side effect of the frame rate mod, but others in the forums have experienced similar issues; fortunately it was early in so I just restarted the game.

If you want it, buy it cheap (less than $10). I didn't have too many issues with it, guess I'll go watch the ending on YouTube.

Nice game, just change the camera to "Wide" in the "Game Options Menu" also check your "Codex" frequently, given that the game does not explain many things, and will explain others in... Not... Such a good way. For example grappling your opponents it's far more effectively if you make sure to HOLD the left trigger, instead of just "pressing it" as the game states.

Other than that i frankly think a lot of the complaints about this game coming from the gaming media weren't more than just the "outcries" of some people complaining about the game being sexist, or something stupid of the sort, it's just a freaking game, reduce it to what it is, the main aspect about this game, it's that the story it's not that good, but it's bearable, and the game can be pretty freaking decent in some parts of it's gameplay.

Still feels like a ninja gaiden game to me. Maybe all the bad reviews are because this game is pretty difficult (I am playing on normal.) You also die due to some bad design at times but I liked NG series and I like this one, not as good but still good.

Well to start off, I picked this game up off of a Humble sale for pretty cheap. I sometimes like to buy and play ♥♥♥♥♥♥ games just for the hell of it. While some are enjoyable in how awful they are, like Legendary, some are just truly bad. This game is one of the latter. It's just bad.

TL;DR - It's bad. If you like awful, ♥♥♥♥ games pick it up on sale. If not, just keep away.

-The cell shaded art style of the game is solid. Nothing special, but it doesn't look poor.
-The game runs well with high frame rates on high settings

-The writing is just god awful (the intended audience has to be preteens when it's probably rated Mature)
-The game is weirdly difficult, but not in an intuitive way (feels more unfair than hard)
-Generally uninspired

While the game looks good and runs well, that doesn't save it from being an utter shitpile. The game is weirdly difficult, which is nothing new to the Ninja Gaiden series, but it's not intuitively difficult. The other NG games made you want to "git gud" and beat the difficult areas/bosses while this game is just frustrating. Enemies are plentiful and you can only take a few hits worth of damage. Then there are tons of gimmick enemies that are super powered and while fine on their own, become annoying and difficult as they send multiple at you at a time. The weapons you have to deal with them are uninspired and feel sub par, taking like 2 light combos for one generic enemy. The more interesting and special weapons are gated behind killing special enemies and you lose them after a period of time. Leaving you with just the normal boring weapons again.

What makes the game the most difficult is the lack of camera control. Not being able to move the camera at all is the worst decision you can make in a game like this. Enemies get in the way of the camera and it's way to easy to lose your character after getting knocked around. No camera movement plus enemies that obscure the screen make it nearly impossible to see what's going on in certain situations. I feel like most of the difficulty stems from this awful camera which just makes the game more difficult in general.

Poor controls + uninspired weapons + terrible writing means I cannot recommend this game. I tried to as hard as I could to play it thinking 6 hours (howlongtobeat) was doable, but I just can't do it to myself anymore. Just save yourself the bad feelings and skip this one.

I had read reviews before even considering buying Yaiba so I should know better right?
But with "Ninja Gaiden" in its title I still hoped for some decent amount of quality. You could have fooled me.
Repetitive gameplay, repetitive combos, embarrasing "jokes" and really frustrating stupid camera.
This is not worthy 30€ not at all, no way sir. But the cel-shaded stylization makes Yaiba eye-candy.

Ich hab lange überlegt, welche Worte das Spiel am besten beschreiben und Hack'n'Slay tifft es einfach am besten :D
ich war am anfang verdutzt warum man den Comic-look und Zombies für das Spiel gewählt hat, aber nach einigen stunden spielzeit weiß ich warum. Es wäre andernfalls ganz klar auf dem Index :D

Man metzelt sich durch die Zombies und finished sie reihenweise á la Mortal Combat. Stereotypen und ein sehr infantiler Humor tun sein restliches um ein wunderbares Zombieblutbad anzurichten.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z ist zurecht nur ein Spin off des gewohnten Ninja Gaidens, denn die Story um Hayabusa wird hier nur periphär behandelt.

Mir persönlich macht es spaß. Wer ein spiel sucht wo es um "pures auf die schnauze" statt "deepe story" sucht. sollte sich nochmal ein paar videos zum spiel anschauen :D vieleicht ist es ja das richtige

Erstmal möchte ich sagen das Ninja Gaiden Z nichts mit allen anderen Ninja Gaidens dadrußen zu tun hat.
OK kommen wir erstmal zum Positive Teil: Das Spiel sieht schon aus und lässt sich auch gut Spielen.
Aber jetzt zum Negativen: Zu anfang ist das Spiel noch leicht und man kann sich gut durch die riesigen Zombie horden kämpfen...Aber desto später es wird desto schwerer wird es. Aber anstatt neue gegner einzubauen nehmen sie die ersten Bosse und klatschen sie überall rein. Es gibt algemein nicht viele verschiedene gegner es werden einfach nur sehr viele starke gegner in massen in irgendein Level reingepackt.

Fazit: Wenn das Spiel im Sale ist kann man es sich ruhig gönnen aber für 50€ finde ich es zu viel. Um sich noch ein Besseres Bild von dem Spiel zu machen könnt ihr mein Let´s Play auf Youtube gucken oder irgendein anderes ist mir auch wumpe

This game ♥♥♥♥ing sucks, but you know what sucks more? The fact this will probably sell like ♥♥♥♥ and we'll never get a good Ninja Gaiden game on Steam.

EDIT: I love you guys, too. Let's just say this, if you're looking for a bad God of War game, you've found it. Right down to the traversal QTEs. This game is shallow as ♥♥♥♥ in terms of combat. You've got nothing close to "depth" beyond using different elements to hard different types of zombies. You've seen everything the game has to offer within two hours max. The bosses are worse than DmC's. The counter is OP and makes the game way easier. The only two things the game has going for it are the art style and humor. The majority of the humor was already shown in the trailers. So yeah, if you wanna waste $60 or get your friend a joke gift, then this is the game you want.

i don't get why the bad reviews !
the game is really lots of fun and even funny too.

the game is an action/beat them up (Devil may Cry..etc) but with a sense of humor, the jokes might not be for everyone but they made laugh. the gameplay is really fun though the upgrades could be better, it isn't as deep as Ninja Gaiden or Devil may Cry in terms of combat but it is a lot of fun. the game ran perfectly fine at max settings at 60+ fps from start to finish.

P.S. the main menu's music is a killer, i can't stop listening to it

Obligatory header to the review: I focus on four primary areas whenever I review a game: gameplay, story, graphics, and sound/audio/general things that go into your earholes. Gameplay and Story get a rating scale from 1 to 10, and the AV stuff gets a rating from 1 to 5. My philosophy on this is that there are some instances in which a game may not necessarily have that much in the way of gameplay (take Amnesia for example), but the story/atmosphere/whatever it may be is reason enough to pick it up. Also, take the cumulative score with a grain of salt; it's just a numerical feeling about the game as a whole. That's part of why I do these subscores. Also, keep in mind that I'm not going off of school grade based rankings. A 5/10 denotes what I feel to be an average game. Likewise, 7/10 is a game that I think is pretty cool, and something that gets a 2/10 is near-abomination level. Pinning scores to an even further obfuscated rating scale is kinda senseless, but for the sake of my backloggery, I'll repeat again that 1.0-2.7 is a one-star game, 3.0-4.7 is a two-star game, 5.0-6.7, 7.0-8.7, and 9.0-10 are three, four, and five stars, respectively.

Gameplay: I really don't get the hate surrounding this game. Yeah, sure, it's not the same quality of game as the Itagaki-produced games, but it's still a load of fun. The gameplay is best described (in my opinion) as a cross between Devil May Cry and Rise of the Triad (actually, that's fair to say in more respects than just the gameplay). Rather than going with light attack/heavy attack/grab, the game has three different types of attack: shortsword for fast face fu- I mean wrecking; fists for punching things dead hard; and flails, which are essentially the Blades of Olympus. Along with that are some special weapons that you get from executing stronger enemies. These lead into the Element system of the game, which is really vital to grasp so that you don't launch your controller, chair, monitor, PC, and desk out the window. However, even more essential is learning how to counter.
Admittedly, countering is somewhat finicky, but I found it to be a godsend against the later bosses of the game. My biggest complaints, honestly, are the finicky countering and the camera, which can be a huge pain at times. However, those didn't really ruin my day all that much. After beating the game, you unlock Ninja Gaiden Z mode, which is essentially a "Yaiba-lite" version that plays more like a beat-em-up game like Streets of Rage than an actual classic Ninja Gaiden game. This was disappointing, admittedly, but it's still a good bit of fun. Also, no, I haven't beaten it. I'm not good enough to do about an hours worth of gameplay on one continue. But hey, this review isn't about my gaming abilities; it's about the game, and this game is simply fun. While it's not as engaging as Ninja Gaiden Black, I still think this game is a load of fun and will definitely play through it again on higher difficulties in the future. 8/10.

Story: The Ninja Gaiden series has never been well known for being the most well-written, and I think it's about time that they embrace their incredibly camp nature. Spark Entertainment felt the same way, too. The writing most definitely got plenty of laughs out of the 12 year old inside me. The Engrish in the Arcade mode was pretty great, too, even if it is a bit of an easy joke. Unlike gameplay, there really isn't much here to talk about. If you've got an immature sense of humor, you'll probably enjoy the cutscenes and dialogue. Just don't go into it expecting Shakespeare. 7/10.

Graphics: Definitely the most striking aspect of this game. It's got that ultra-cel shaded style in the ilk of games like Madworld, Killer7, and No More Heroes, and it looks pretty dang good when you crank the settings to max. It ran near-perfectly on my GTX 760 at 1080p, max settings, and 60FPS, so if you've got a similar card, you should have pretty similar results. As for the actual art design of the game itself, some of the areas get a bit boring to look at again and again, but if you're spending that much time looking at the scenery, you're not playing the game right. Now, don't think I made those comparisons earlier in this section without intent. This game, much like the prior three mentioned, is pretty dang violent. Absurdly so. However, this helps feed into the campy nature of this game, so I don't mind it at all. Again, this is more proof that art style trumps ultra-high polygon counts most any day of the week. Your eyes will most definitely not get bored, presuming you're actually playing the game. 5/5.

Audio: This game has a pretty rad soundtrack, I must say. The "hard encounter" theme is a bit meh, but there is some pretty good battle music throughout this game. They're songs you probably wouldn't mind working out to, if that helps give you an idea of the kinds of songs in the game. As for the voice acting, it doesn't get in the way. Nothing really that remarkable. Sound design, once again, doesn't really get in the way or make itself known all that much. For some pretty good songs, but not too remarkable anything else, the audio portion of this game gets a 3/5.

Overall: An absolutely gaudy adventure both in style and in substance that I overall had a pretty good time with. However, I'd hold off until this game becomes about $30 or so. Any higher is a bit too much in my opinion. 8/7/5/3; 7.7/10.

I want to clear something up before I move on here. This game is NOT a traditional Ninja Gaiden game, if you couldn't already tell. I feel as though some people were looking for a Ninja Gaiden 4, a true sequel to Gaiden 2 (because 3 was definitely a different, less satisfying beast). So Yaiba. This game is the extreme opposite of a true Ninja Gaiden game in many ways. However, it is also like those games in many ways as well. Let me explain.

I've played Ninja Gaiden 1-3, beginning from the original xbox. I was never great at them, constantly getting punished just like every other regular joe, but I beat all three. I've read from others that this isn't a true Ninja Gaiden, that it's easier, that it's more or less terrible. Sure, if you were amazing at the first two, maybe this one wasn't that next level of challenge you were looking for.

But let me tell you this. If you are used to the blocking/counter system of games such as mad max and batman, this game will toss you around like a baby back ♥♥♥♥♥. There is little to no leeway in your counter timing, and on top of that the moments when you can block/counter are random and unpredictable. Even the enemies that are predictable are so quick to react it's hard to gauge when to counter. Even on the first level I had a few moments where i found myself getting killed simply because I couldn't react to my opponent's attacks quick enough. Very Ninja Gaiden to me.

Moving on, in terms of the series itself, this is not a progression of the Ryu Hayabusa story, at least as far as I can tell. Quite the opposite. You play as the antagonist (the bad dude) to Ryu in this game. You play as the man who wants to KILL Ryu, and will do what he has to in order to find and defeat him. So no, in that way this is not a typical Ninja Gaiden. This dude is foul mouthed, generally uncaring, sarcastic, and everything that Ryu is not. A large depature from the original series.

The graphics and artwork in this game certainly depict this departure. Instead of a crisp, realistic graphical style, we are given a more vibrant, comic book graphical style. I personally love how this looks and it fits wonderfully with the overall theme of this game. Plus it just looks bad ♥♥♥. This doesn't detract from the gore and dismemberment the series is known for, however. If anything, the game is more gory and vicious than the games before it, and it is super satisfying to watch.

This game is, at its core, a big hack n' slash game. Is that a bad thing? Well, yes and no. In the original games, you were faced with a fair amount of enemies, but they were pretty skillful. If you didn't play just right, you would be dead in a matter of seconds. In this game, the amount of general enemies is basically tenfold. You will be fighting mass hordes of zombies, and you WILL be cutting up said zombies in hordes as well. That being said, you will still get torn up. Why? There may be 20 or more enemies on screen. Although you may be cutting some up, it is almost guaranteed that there will be others that will come at you from all angles, hitting you with stupid little attacks. Some you may be able to counter, but the counter symbols come so quick and randomly that its more than likely the average joe will not be able to stop them before they are hit.

This is where the difficulty comes in. You miss a counter, get hit, turn to focus on that enemy, only to have this happen from another random angle at a random time, within a split second. Let this happen a few times, and you're done. Dying in this game does not come from the fact that you are fighting gigantic random hordes, but from the fact that in these masses you will be hit randomly by one or two enemies enough times to where you will die. In this way it is no different than the original games. The only difference being that those deadly blows now hide in a massive crowd.

At its core, this is still a Ninja Gaiden game. If you've never played a Ninja Gaiden game before, I will tell you now, this is not how the original games were, and you will be sorely disappointed if you go to the others after having played this. The gameplay is still the same, allbeit in a much more "dense" form, but the rest is very much a different story. As an impartial gamer I would take this game as a very over the top, comic, gory, sarcastic hack n' slash romp with a rather tough/tight countering system. As a Ninja Gaiden fan, I take this as being a very interesting view at the other side of the Ninja Gaiden world, with all of the jokes, changes, sarcasm, gameplay tweaks, and graphical changes that come with it. This isn't a "bad" game. It's fun, it's crazy, it's brutal, it's cool. But if you're looking for an advancement in the original Ninja Gaiden series, this isn't it. This is more of a rebel yell from the developers than anything else. Enjoy!

I finished this game today and for being a game where you don't play as Ryu Hayabusa...this game is extremely fun to play. Sure this game has flaws like being extremely easy as heck then getting harder as you progress through just like any other Ninja Gaiden game but for me it was hard to put down no matter how many times I died. So if you like slicing up many enemies and solving many puzzles..then this is the game for you.
