this is one of the hardest games to review, it has fun platforming and good swordplay, but as soon as you enter the ninja temple in the first level, things get really hard, and I mean it's brutal. you also have to go into the start menu to use items. but, this does have a lot of strategy to it and it's a fun old xbox game
This is still one of the most awesome games, made for the first Xbox. It is playable if you have Live on your 360. The graphics are awesome, the combat is fun, if extremely hard, and the story holds up well, in terms of coolness. If you're a hardcore gamer, looking for a challenge actually worth your time, pick this up. If you're an action/adventure fan, pick this up. If you like ninjas, pick this up. If you fit into any combination of the above-listed types, GO TO THE STORE, RIGHT THIS MINUTE, AND BUY THIS GAME, IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND OUT YOUR HEAD AND REPLACE IT WITH AN ACTIVE GRENADE, WHICH WILL BLOW UP, CREATING A NEW BRAIN!!!
This game is good and annoying!
This is a pretty good game but depending on what level of difficulty and the type of gamer you are this game will definitely annoy you off! Im a experienced gamer and im replaying the game on hard and it really irritating! my last problem is you cant save whenever you want to! But it makes you a better gamer and ninja! Overall good game! Dont die or your screwed!
This game is one of my favorite games for my xbox. I play it all of the time and it never gets old. The only problem with the game is that you can't save on demand and it's way to hard. I got stuck like a few minutes into the game. but other than that, the game is outstanding. the graphics are really good. It looks like an xbox 360 game. The other thing that made this game great was the blood. when ever you strike someone with your sword or whatever, blood just comes out of their wound like crazy. it's kind of unrealistic how blood just jets out of the enemy, but it's so funny. this has to be on the top of my favorite games. I definitely recommend this game to anyone whose a hardcore action/adventure fan. whenever I'm playing the game, I get kind of mad at how hard the game is, but it's defiantly worth getting.
"Great game and great franchise"
Ninja gaiden is awesome it's hard and it's fun and to me it is pretty addicting. The cutscenes are great it's like watching it on a xbox 360,the gameplay is good too. But what really blows me away is the cutscenes their great. You can pick it up and play just like clapping your hands. Also I like how I proved people wrong they said the game is to hard and I can't beat it and that I am way over my head but I'm not I bought it and I am almost halfway through so if any of you guys read this review TRUST ME!!!!!!!!!!! anyone can play this game if you like a challenge,if your patient,and if you really like to play video games. Again don't pay attention to the people that tell you it's to hard for you. And again buy this game because you will like the graphics,gameplay,and all the excitement packed in. One more thing if you like number one get your hands on ninja gaiden 2.
Well, I haven't finished the game yet (since I got it about last week) but I think it is a true challenge. Now I'm not saying if you think you aren't that good at games you shouldn't play it, but I would consider looking into it, seeing how the story goes, and then possibly buying it. What got me into the whole ninja gaiden franchise was when I was playing the ninja gaiden 2 demo on my 360. It seemed so cool, and the enemies were pretty easy, but once I got the original gaiden, I was in for some chop. But to me the game can be very *frustrating*. I mean I'm not even halfway through and I encounter at least 3 bosses, maybe more! But all I'm saying is to go out and buy it if you're a fan of NG and other related games. But I don't know, I'm more of a fan of shooter, but this game has some pretty good graphics, however skill and patience is a MUST!!!
