I'm glad that I waited for Zorro The Chronicles to get a patch before reviewing it but even without the abundance of bugs, it's still an overall underwhelming adventure. It does show promise, though, so I'd gladly play a sequel.

I wish this game felt better to play; I wanted it to succeed. Unfortunately, there aren’t many people I can recommend Zorro The Chronicles to. If your child is a fan of the show, the game is worth picking up, but if you’re a more general fan of the Zorro franchise, it’s worth waiting for another outing – Zorro always rides again.

A sanitized retelling of the legend of Zorro with simple controls and an innocent sense of humor that largely achieves its goals as a companion game to the new cartoon.

Zorro: The Chronicles is a kid-friendly action-adventure that, despite some limitations, shows that the old fox has a few tricks up its sleeves.

Zorro The Chronicles belongs to the category of games for children and young people, from which most consumers do not expect much. That is probably why some reviewers quickly dismissed and underestimated this game. But, if you immerse yourself a little more, you will find that Zorro is a pleasant affair with interesting content and game mechanics.

All in all, then, Zorro The Chronicles is hard to recommend. There are few, if any, redeeming features here, and anything that’s partially enjoyable – like the simple combat with its humorous finishing animations – is ruined by a dreadful camera. There are far better family-friendly adventure games out there and so, even if you or your kids have a love for Zorro, you should spend your money elsewhere.

Zorro: The Chronicles is a below-average game made worse by a litany of bugs. From an unruly camera to the ease with which you can get stuck in the environment, it tests the player's willingness to stick with it. If you are lucky enough to make it through a play session without any of these issues, you'll find an unrefined combat system that's accompanied by a childish approach that aims younger than the ESRB rating. It has the bones to be a kid-friendly version of the Batman: Arkham series, but the execution is more than lacking, and you'll be hard-pressed to give this a shot unless you know someone who just discovered the series or can find this title on sale.

Once you become engaged in a fight the camera locks into one place until you leave the area that you are in. But as soon as you are under attack again it locks in. This makes for some difficult gameplay trying to figure out where everyone is.

As such Zorro The Chronicles doesn't quite hit the mark. It's a game made for children, which is why having a more simplistic edge may be useful, but the overall level of quality is perhaps not there. Although it gets the tone right, and things like its environmental takedowns are bound to cause a laugh for fans of the show, the overall game isn't quite as enjoyable as it could be.

Zorro The Chronicles is a low stake but also quite competent action adventure game that is fun for both younger gamers and the older generations who grew up with many different iterations of Zorro’s adventures.

In Zorro The Chronicles, you could reenact most of the scenes that aired on its original animation. Players can either choose to face the enemies up front or choose the quieter option to avoid any combat. The signature action of marking the opponents with the Z mark is also possible. Although the basic structure of the game is great, there seems to be too much bugs and the kid friendly auto-interactions disturb the overall experience. The details of Zorro throwing a smoke grenade when he depletes all of his health, and saying that he’ll definitely come back, is one of the key animations which creates the immersion all kids will appreciate.

I was pleasantly surprised with how competent Zorro The Chronicles ended up being. It uses elements from both old-school Assassin’s Creed and Sniper Elite in an easy and forgiving environment, making this game the perfect gateway title for kids to learn how to deal with a stealth game. I never thought I’d play a Zorro game in 2022, let alone one as good as this one.
