Weak

JUST NO.

I played this game an hour, maybe less. It just did not grab me. They only lure this had was using Ryu Hayabusa and the name NINJA GAIDEN, but this is NOT NINJA GAIDEN....NOT EVEN CLOSE. Its fast action fighting, but that's about there is to this. Its chaotic nonsense with an almost non existence lack luster story. The cell shading graphics didn't add much to the excitement either. The controls are wonky, and the upgrade UI is confusing. I packed this up and put it back in the mail the same day.

The thick lines and heavy colors give the game a pleasant art style but quickly becomes overwhelming when the action gets intense. A collection of mediocre ideas executed with a minimal amount of effort. Try this if you are bored or curious but don't expect anything special. Just go play Bayonetta instead.

Really Bad

Fun concept poor execution

This game wasn't worth playing. It took all the frustrating and not fun parts of ninja gaiden and stripped away everything that made it fun and worth playing.

The game wants you to use combos and block/counter with precision but the controls do not allow it. It is a button mashing game up until the bosses so you get no real practice through out the game.

I have never said "This is so stupid and frustrating" so many times while playing before.

You can beat the game in 1 day if you power through the frustration but it isn't worth it. Skip it, you have been warned!
