This is the first Ninja Gaiden I have played. But, I can say the game was great. I am not usually interested by this type of game. The bosses were difficult compared to all the games on the system. The problem with the game is it does get kind of repetitive after a while. But, it is a must play.
I have to say, it's about time. At first, it does seem like mindless button mashing, but the further you get, the more difficult it gets, and mindless button mashing is no longer applicable. You'll actually find yourself using various techniques provided as you progress. They made sure to include many cool attacks and they made sure to make the woman character very lifelike, if you know what I mean, haha. The story is kinda cliche, but the gameplay should take your mind away from that as many mysteries come about and become unraveled. This game is a sure rent but I don't think it is a must buy. So rent it and prepare for the journey!
