Summary

Set six months after the events of the previous game, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen lets players step into the shoes of Zen, a master assassin, as he slips through the darkness in a story of betrayal and intrigue set in the once peaceful region of Utakata, now in the grip of a vicious civil war. Betrayed by his companions and left fatally wounded, Zen chooses to live the life of a ninja and sets out to find those who wronged him, stopping at nothing to unleash the full fury of his silent yet deadly revenge.

Regarding story—well, it's there. The writing is not particularly engaging and the translation is, at times, unwieldy. However, it serves its purpose, and conveys the important events of the game reasonably well. The voice acting is passable and the sound is fairly satisfying. You'll cringe when Zen walks near an enemy, each footstep so loud it seems it could bring your foes around at any moment, and the piercing of sword through flesh is appropriately aurally brutal.

Putting a $40 price tag on something that could easily both bore and frustrate a normal player seems like highway robbery, but I personally know some gamers that love any game taken straight from Japanese development. Shinobido 2 lacks polish, it lacks pizzazz, and it lacks substance, and high-adrenaline moments, which are extremely rare indeed, don't make up for its shortcomings.

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 Vita, I can't recommend it. The desire to quest in Shinobido 2 is washed away by its numerous flaws.
