The lights are on
Odds are, you have never heard of this game. If you haven't, this Replay is for you. Rising Zan: Samurai Gunman was released in 1999 for the PSone, and to this day is one of the most ridiculous games ever made.
You play as Zan (formerly Johnny, now "Johnny No More"), an American cowboy who travels east to learn the way of the samurai. When he returns to the west, he uses his newfound skills to murder ninjas, Russian nesting dolls, sumo wrestlers, and evil crucifixes made of hay. Watch below as myself, Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, and Bryan Vore play through this brilliantly absurd title. And just try to get the unbelievable theme song out of your head.

Lol, this is mental.
One of the funnier replays.
Truly and obscure gem. One that I actually owned for some time. So much time spent playing this *** thing. Such nostalgia.
zomg it stops when you behead karnov! wheres the rest of the replay?!?!?!?!? i need my fix :(
"Oh my God! You killed Push Man! You ***!"
Anyone else catch that fantastic South Park reference?
Not gonna lie, Rising Zan seems like an amazing idea.
Yeah, Rising Zan was kind of like Bayonetta meets Wet. A next gen version might not be so bad, as long as it didn't actually take itself seriously.
Also, that Spice Girls game looked terrible. I had no idea what was going on.
haha that game looks pretty sweet...I love how every Replay video you guys seem to talk about the fog in the nintendo 64 games! haha
never heard of it
This was so hilarious. I was laughing the whole time at Rising Zan and Spice World. I also think that they should do a remake of Rising Zan. Great episode as always.
Wow this was a great replay and it actually looks like a lot of fun! I would buy it.
great replay Dark Cloud
ahhhhhh ineed a docter my ribcage exploded from laughing at the dude in the back in spice world
i want rising zan for my psp it looks awesome!!!!
Guys, that spinning sword move did take off--sort of. It was in I-Ninja for the PS2 and Xbox. You should do a replay of that ridiculousness.
play mystical ninja for the n64!!!
That was hilarious!
Rising Zan replay = awesome; Spice World = worst "game" ever.
I'd never heard of Rising Zan, but it looks hilarious. The swordcopter is amazing.
Spice World is obviously the best game ever. The offensive burgler in the background makes it even better.
