The animation series on which Zorro The Chronicles is based was previously published in 2015 to 2016. Now we are six years later and a game has been released that is based on the TV animation series of the same name. The game was released last week for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X. We have given the game a major overhaul and you can read below whether the game is for you.

When you start the game you get a menu that is completely in the Zorro style. With each mission you can choose which character you will play with. You can play as Diego or as his twin sister Ines the alternate Zorro. Both characters play almost almost the same. The difference between the two is minimal. Where Diego starts with an extra KO bar, Ines starts with an extra heart to deal more damage. Then you choose at which level you will start the game. This can be done on Normal level or Hard level.

Unfortunately, the game doesn’t really look next-gen. We were allowed to play the game on the Playstation 5 and the loading times are wonderfully fast, but the game looks a bit outdated. It is very similar to the style of the animated series from a few years ago, so if the intention is to stay true to the source, it is well done. What is also a pity is that not much voice-over has been used in the game. Every now and then you hear some battle cries and the captain Monasterio who very loudly ZORRO! calls.

Where you see the character Zorro jumping and flying in all directions in the series, the best man / woman in the game is rather wooden. The game is not very difficult and can be mastered quickly. Each button has a function such as hitting, countering, sneaking and stun. It feels very much like a game from the Assassin’s Creed series, only unfortunately a bit worse developed.

Another big disadvantage in the game is that you can’t jump. So you are often required to walk past objects, demolish an object or move to a higher surface through the use of your whip. Also, unfortunately Zorro can’t swim so if you fall into the water you are forced to load your previous spot where the auto-save has been and pick it up again where you were.

What’s nice is that once you’ve damaged an enemy enough and your KO bar is up enough that you can use it, you can then use an Instant KO on a character that knocks them out in one go. These are often fun videos that are then shown. These are the nice things that belong to Zorro and make the series characteristic.

If you look at the story of the game, there is very little. You are presented with a mission in which you have to get from A to B, but unfortunately not much of a story is told. There are a total of 18 missions in the game that focus on collecting an item or rescuing a particular person. There are also a number of side quests in the missions that you can do to ensure that you earn more money so that you can use it to buy skills.

Zorro The Chronicles is a game aimed at the young audience familiar with the animated series. The game is quite simple and you can figure it all out in no time. Be careful if you do everything too fast, the game can sometimes crash due to the speed you use. For example, I regularly had a crash when I went through a level too quickly, which meant that I had to start all over again from an auto-save point.


Zorro The Chronicles is a game that, as I mentioned earlier, is intended for a young audience that is familiar with the series. If you are not familiar with the series, you will not find much use for the game. The game borrows a lot from Assassin’s Creed, but unfortunately it doesn’t work out as well.
