Samurai Zombie Nation Review

The Spoony One | Jan 27 2007 | more notation(s) | 

Click here for a bonus commentary track.

Talk about a bait-and-switch! I got suckered in by the coolest game title ever, only to find that it has nothing to do with samurai OR zombies. Instead it involves the epic struggle between a forty-foot floating head and a greased-up undead Sean Connery. I could not make this up.

    Wow… Even though it Trolled us with an epic plot, it still is made of win. I mean, the win may be totally deformed and shaped like some weird zombie head, but still… A weird game is a good game in my book. this looks like it could have been the Katamari Damacy of its day. Either way, I’ve got to find the sprites for this game now…
    Great classic review~!

    Okay, if you make a game where you play as a samurai taking on zombies, alien overlords, and the Statue of Liberty come to life, you have an obligation NOT to screw it up!

    The kanji characters you see when you die read “munen,” which is the samurai concept of humiliation upon defeat.
    Also, ‘namakubi’ means ‘raw neck’

    Well, the name of the Samurai could be a reference to an ancient monster from Japanese mythology called a nubekubi, which could detach it’s head, which would then fly around in search of victims. So that’s probably why you play as his head..

    Sooo… Zombie Tom Sawyer, Naked Zombie Sean Connery, “Re: Your Brains” and “Thriller”. You covered it pretty well.
    BUT!
    There is one important piece that you forgot.
    The classic annoying rave song, “ZOMBIE NATION”! Seriously! You didn’t just, like, go on iTunes or something and just type “zombie nation” in the search field? To put the shitty rave music into the mind-bending zombie-head shmup would have been EPIC.
    For your consideration, Spoony.

    This will however not stop me from trying. Thanks for raising the bar.

    so let me get this straight…the severed head of what must apparently be a 100 foot tall samurai flies to the US to save us from an evil alien that looks like an enormous naked sean connery and his weapons and vehicle trained zombie army and his ace in the hole, a possessed medusa lady libery…by shooting out what appear to be an endless cache of flying eyeballs and maybe those chattering joke teeth the joker was so fond of and DESTROYING EVERY SQUARE INCH OF EVERY BUILDING, MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD IN THE COUNTRY?!!!???

    double you…tee…eff….?

    from the severed samurai head vs the evil statue of liberty thing alone i have to assume this has got to be one of those games that meant something totally different in japan that had it’s “story” altered for release in the states. also probably why that magic sword he came to get is probably never mentioned again. in japan it was probably called “fuck those stupid yankee shits” or “you think the a-bomb is bad, try a flying giant samurai head you filthy gaijin dogs”

    or maybe just something simpler like “fuck you america” we may never know…

    “you’re the man now, dawg” & “fuck you that’s for zardoz” made me laugh so hard i almost shot my eyeballs out like that samurai head dude…and considering i’ve been reading/ watching your reviews most of the day today, that’s really saying something. hahahaha

    Namakubi in Japanese literally means ‘severed head’, and according to Wikipedia, the Japanese version was originally about ‘tengu’, a figure from Japanese folklore. Suddenly, the oddness makes sense.

  • Ronin_the_Silent

    Oh God! I did not need a naked zombie Sean Connery image stuck in my head. Thanks Spoony.

    Otherwise, quite amusing and it looks to be fairly difficult with all that shit on the screen at once. It also kind of feels like one giant joke or cop out to put an actual head as the main character.

  • The_Hyphenator

    Oh, man! What a cop-out! How the hell do you screw up a great concept like samurai vs. zombies? Such a sad, sad waste…

    Though naked zombie Sean Connery was a riot. And I have heard much worse Connery impressions, Spoony.

  • SpoonyOneLove4You

    Just bought this game at Free Craigs List Ads. The game sucks so bad! The story is just so far-fetched, and the gameplay is well.. I'd rather play through Balamory on the PS1… Anyone else think this game is pathetic?

    Ok the other messege I put down does not seem to want to work because I put a Link but this game really reminds me of Cho Iniki now available on PS3 online Store. Naked Sean Connery and the level design were the first things to tip me off, or perhaps these fucked up shooters were very popular in Japan ? Anyways I honestly think those two games are connected but I could be wrong

      Re: Your Brains =/= L4D2. Yes, it was in L4D2, but it was not created for it.

        Actually – It was. The guy who made the song is the same guy who worked on the portal one and two endsongs, made by the same company, Valve. Whenever you looked at release dates before posting this comment (Since I’ll be a nice guy and assume you did), you didn’t think it was even alittle too coincidental that Johnathan Colton’s song and Valve’s game released in the same week, when it’s known he does for Valve?

          You are a nice guy, because I didn’t. I apologize.

    How can they be so literal about the “head” but lie about everything else.

      meh, it would have been too obvious.

    Why do I get the sense that this whole game was meant as some kind of middle finger to American culture? I love your Connery, Noah! Also, the graphics are actually very lively and colorful for an NES game.

    it has something to do with a view of americans as sheep, or aka zombies… mindless, and under-a-controller, led by popular media maybe … the samurai head, is a japanese mystic man, or so americans can understand “just a samurai” … he yells fire, he shoots mind bullets… because he is a mystic man, he has a more powerful mind than others, and his words and ideas are artfully compared to magic … (as, you can say about maybe a musician…. hmm.. like bob marley, influencing many people with ideas)…
    so, with his ideas … maybe as simply a prayer, he is destroying the corrupted people of usa…
    made in to a video game, because the maker of it had these wishes, but… cant do anything about it, but he can make games…

    this is what i think about it anyway…

    The kanji that appear when you die do…well I guess it could be interpreted as fuck! They’re pronounced Munen, which comes to regret, or mortification. So it’s like “Fuck! I’m mortified about getting T-Bagged by a naked zombie Sean Connery!”

    your Connory does NOT suck.

    ps: your commentary is some of my fave ever and have been watching video game review videos for about 21 years.

    • Jayden Reynolds

      …Since 1990? How the hell were you watching video game review videos since before the World Wide Web?

      • http://recklessillumination.org Spaceman Schmuck

        That’s a good question, Jayden, thanks. They used to do video game review tv shows http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOZ7W94XeeE

        and other video game related features straight to VHS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFiMQav3gVs

        • Jayden Reynolds

          Ah, my first exposure to video game review videos was X-Play back when it didn’t suck – so roughly the early-mid 2000s. I’m only 17 though, so…

    I just had an awakening, or what the english word for it is. This is how disappointed I was about the world. The introduction was awesome but the experience different.
