Critic Reviews for Zanki Zero: Last Beginning

Zanki Zero's strange blend of roguelike exploration, survival gameplay, and sci-fi character drama is truly unique, but lousy combat and a rough beginning stretch keep it from greatness.

In the end, Zanki Zero: Last Beginning is a credible and entertaining adventure, but its potential to stand alongside its developers' best works is hampered by its systems and story's inability to come together and elevate the experience beyond the sum of its parts.

An interesting story and concept that may be too hardcore if you are not an RPG fan, but that may fullfill your wishes if you are that kind of gamer.

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning is a surprisingly good RPG with survival elements, a mature video game able to keep on their toes those who'll have the patience to tame a rich but demanding gameplay.

Zanki Zero is a really entertaining blend of visual novel and survival RPG gameplay. The story is just as eccentric and zany as the Danganronpa series and features that grittiness fans have come to expect. The combat system is a little simplistic, but the human cloning makes it a really unique experience. However, the title doesn't quite hit the same deliciously dark heights as Danganronpa.

7 / 10.0

Zanki Zero’s unique premise and the way it connects to the various mechanics surrounding the game is noteworthy for its ambition and creativity. However, the shaky foundation of its overly simple combat engine and level designs holds it back from greatness.

Zanki Zero drops the investigations for average survival RPG gameplay and explores themes of life, death, and rebirth with a sadistic story that goes places that Danganronpa wouldn't dare explore.The links above are affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, may earn from qualifying purchases.

There’s a time and a place for that stuff, but as a reward for tenacious grinding, I’m not buying what Zanki Zero is selling.
