I literally changed the channel and continued tapping x, i changed back and the wave of enemies was dead and my health was full. This game is the opposite of ninja gaiden.

No combos, no challenge (to the point of it being absurdly boring) there's no point in playing it. I don't understand how you can ruin such a good formula. It was so simple.

I would have loved if they kelp what made NG1 and2 better mainly NG2 (decapitation, lots of blood and cool finishers ) this game look like NG but don't feel much like it much more like NG lite with zero calories, I have not touched the game in 3 days im done better luck next time.

Lack of Vision

I never post reviews. Ninja Gaiden's lack of vision changed that.
The game has been so disrespected it wouldnt even have worked as a game if it was entering consoles as Ninja Gaiden 1.

Losing the man who created this Franchise really hurt TECMO. (thats an understatement)

The game is basically entering a small area to fight a large group of enemies button smashing x&y waiting for your supermove meter to fill up to destroy all enemies on screen & kill a few more stragglers... enter a QTE cutscene rinse & repeat until fight a mediocre boss. Beyond button mashing, the problem that persists is that you have different types of enemies shooting at you with guns.. some throwing ninpo at you & others even shooting rockets. Your constantly 100% fighting dashing like a mad man HOPING not to get hit (which you will 1000's of times) by those weapons which stun you in your tracks. Also enemies magically grab you & do a devasting move that will take 1/3 or 1/2 your life. SO your just in a flux of hope & luck to make it through most battles dodging the grabs or thrown weapons.

Story is random uninteresting Jappp weird spazzo. Too be expected.

Graphics are extremely bland except for Character models. Sound is Flat, Harsh, & annoying.

I never quit a game. My gamerscore is well over 250,000 legit & i constantly commit to half gamerscore on anygame i play. but this Game is Annoying Despicable waste of Ninja Honor & has become one of the top 10 worst games of alltime in my books. Plus they dissrespect you more by asking you to pay $10 for half4$$ multiplayer!! BUMMER on all levels ;,[ Hope this helps.
