The game is not as fleshed out as Yasai Ninja, but I did have fun with it as I worked on my Kyurinaga’s Revenge review. I liked what the game did with this new game, and hopefully they’re hard at work on a new entry in this universe.
Despite all of its shortcomings regarding the levels design, Kyurinaga's Revenge is an original game, in a well realized world, that will challenge you until the very end. It is difficult, its trophies are hard to get, but the variety of the worlds and its varied gameplay makes it an experience worth playing.
Kyurinaga’s Revenge is a broken mess of a platformer. With unresponsive controls, demanding platforming, and frustrating boss battles, this game is proof that some vegetables just aren't good for you.
To summarise, Kyurinaga's Revenge has aggressively bland level design, flawed mechanics, and the only purpose its few bosses serve is to put expensive HDTVs and controllers at risk. Although the backgrounds show some creativity and the combat mode is a serviceable distraction, they do little to stem the tide of misery that is this game.
