Exploitable enemy AI and finicky physics spoil Shinobido 2's stealthy aspirations.

Gliding in with the wingsuit for a kill

Easy to peer behind the AI curtain ; Combat is simplistic ; Inconsistent physics ; Levels are frequently reused

There is certainly some satisfaction to be had in stealthily eliminating a whole camp of enemies, but Shinobido 2 delivers very little of it. Instead, it favors quantity over quality. The reuse of environments and introduction of a second playable...

Remember Tenchu, that series of ninja-stealth games which began in 1998 with great reception in the western world? I think many of us fondly recall those games all the fun times we had dropping from rooftops and slicing open the throats of our enemies...

Don't let this sneak under your radar.

Sneaking and killing are well done; Great atmosphere; Faction system makes no two adventures the same; Endless amount of missions for those that want them

Terrible AI on both allies and enemies; Camera is troublesome at times.; Controls have a sharp learning curve

Gamers who can take the time to learn how to work with Shinobido 2's controls and camera will be met with a deep, satisfying stealth adventure. With depth to spare, a passable story, a very intriguing faction system, and all the stealth fun you could...

Let me make one thing abundantly clear: in rare cases, a title gets a mediocre review score while at the same time, a select group of gamers are likely desperate for such entertainment. Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen isn't worth more than the 6.5 you see...

The Ugly: “Never thought stealthy assassinations could get repetitive.”

The sequel to a game that never came out in North America is here, but should you buy Shinobido 2?

Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen is just a bunch of poorly controlled quests weaved together with a very thin story. If it was only a few bucks, it would be a decent distraction for people looking to be ninjas on the go, but as a full price PlayStation...

Upon completion, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen throws up an interesting question -- does the fun one has with a game justify the fact that it's a glorified port masquerading as a sequel? What if the original game is seven years old?

All things considered, Shinobido 2 is still fun, and would make a worthwhile purchase once the launch period is over and gamers find themselves in need of some solid action during quiet release periods. It is by no means a must-have launch title, and...

Acquire is certainly no stranger to stealth action, having developed the seminal Tenchu series. Now, they're back to ply their shadowy trade on the PlayStation Vita with Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen.

Some neat ideas present here ; Stealth kills are OK ; Lots of mission types

Camera and Controls are clunky ; Repetitive gameplay ; Sub-par Graphics ; Paper-thin story

Developed by the team behind the Tenchu series, Shinobido 2 has you guiding a betrayed ninja named Zen in his quest for vengeance. Zen must skillfully assassinate those who wronged him in feudal-era Japan. Played from a third-person perspective behind Zen
