This game is such a great game to own for the DS. What this game is, is a ninja on the search for gold and goes to the highest level of extremity to get what he wants and escape safely. While dodging mines, bombs, turrets, all kinds of drones, machine guns, missile launchers, and many others, you have to keep moving, jumping, sliding, strategically falling, hiding, and keep thinking. As it says on the back cover of the product, "One moment of hesitation and you're history". Everything about this game, except for a few mistakes, really kept this game afloat in its game play. The first mistake or thing they should've found a way to increase was the amount of levels you get to create. I don't remember but I think you only could create around 8 or so, which was pretty pathetic. I don't know about others, but I like a game where you could create a lot. Another thing I noticed was that you could only create one file, which stinks when you have older and younger brothers (They erased my files twice). There also wasn't that big of variety over the music selection, and each song or beat (since that was all it was) was VERY repetitive, which drove me mad. It’s not that bad when playing the single player puzzles but when creating a level, hearing the same song over and over is annoying. Also, the touch screen for the level editor is a bit non-responsive which could cause unwanted mistakes on your map.But that’s enough for the negative side and now on with the positive. The game is probably somewhat high in its replay value yet immensely large in its length. There are over 40 episodes each containing 5 puzzling levels, which equals to over 200 levels. There are 12 tutorial levels where they show you the basic techniques and strategies of the game. For multiplayer game play, there are around 105 co-op levels, 50 domination maps, 30 tag maps, and 70 Blitz maps, which all contribute to the length of the game. There are 7 different colored ninjas that are unlockable, which was neat. You could also choose from the new plus mode, where the graphics are more detailed or play in pure mode, which has the less detailed graphics. Online play is really awesome. There are currently almost 7,000 levels created from other player to play from which is amazing. But some of them are unbeatable due to lack of testing, while others are plain ridiculous such as having a huge amount of turrets, laser drones, etc. just maul you and completely take away the strategy in the game. All in all, this game is a complete must buy for the DS.
