It would seem this iteration of Ninja Gaiden was deemed a bit weak by it's creators. So much so that they added in MANY long and mostly pointless cut scenes to bore us between somewhat repetitive battles.
Overall it's still a somewhat decent game, but quite short and lacking the variation of it's predecessors.

There is something kismet that had me playing to the end but it really doesn't hold much water. The game is classic stage oriented, the graphics aren't terrible but their gaining some date, and the spread of options for beating up baddies is average.
Average isn't bad. It's just not great.
Easy mode will give you all the normal difficulty but when you get down to critical you become super blocker/dodger and can handle anything.
Normal to Insane is ridiculously hard. I think they used a robot or the Korean tourney winners to build this games difficulty because if you are not on, like kong you are going to have your butt kicked over and over again.
If you want a romp, and to see an--ehh--ok story, then grab the title for a 4 day play through and send it back wondering if you should have spent that time elsewhere.
