Ninja Gaiden review

Reviewed May 26, 2005

careless_whisper says: "Ninja Gaiden is a superior piece of software. It resembles nothing so much as an exquisitely engineered piece of machinery, and that's both Ninja Gaiden's majesty and its weakness: it works so exquisitely, but it often feels more like a collection of well-oiled parts than a videogame.

midwinter says: "The problem with hype and anticipation is that it's pretty much a vicious circle. One creates the other, while the other feeds the one.

Ninja Gaiden review

Reviewed August 18, 2007

Suskie says: "Ninja Gaiden is a mean game. The enemies you encounter are absolute ass-kicking, in-your-face, unforgiving, top-of-the-line butt-whooping badasses, and they know nothing but your demise. So determined are they to bring about your end that I received the impression that the game itself was out to get me. The free-floating sense of hostility I picked up from Ninja Gaiden is so extreme that I’m somewhat surprised the load screens don’t say, “Loading, bitch!” "
