The ninjas of Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen

A key to successful ninja-ing is that silence is golden. It's all about walking softly and carrying a sharp sword. Shinobido 2 fails at this most crucial element because silence is rather unnecessary. Yes, you still have the piercing katana blade that cuts human flesh like Thanksgiving turkey, yet you could wield a dull butter knife and the enemies in this game would barely put up a fight. If feudal Japan was anything like this, we're not sure what all the fuss was about. You play as a freelance night stalker willing to fight for he who pays the highest, but the numerous cutscenes that help drive the story do little to keep you interested to see the conclusion.
