Being a fan of ninja games, I picked this up, it wa a bellow the radar game for sure. I enjoyed it quite a bit, it was very over the top. It's not a easy game, but not as hard as say Ninja Gaiden II. Ninja Vision is a neat ability that lets you slow down the action.
The graphics are OK, not super, but not horrible. There is a ton of quick time events, so be warned.
It is a hidden gem as stated and worth a play through or two.
This game has everything
This game was awesome, i like ninja games , they are fun. This gets a real high rating because its graphics are crazy, the weapons are upgradeable, and the storyline is pretty good, Plus you get to fight some big creatures that arent hard to beat. I reccomened this to anyone its great
the game is so boring. it has no story. it is a waste of 40 bucks.
Good and Bad at the same time
this is an okay game but its one of this games that should have a big sticker on the front of it that says Dont buy this go rent it first.If you do buy this game i VERYVERY STRONGLY recommend you finish the mission you are on and then stop dont be playin the mission and let it say autosave and stuff like that it dosent autosave it just saves the mission ur on and makes you restart the whole mission.Whats cool about this game is you can customize the way your ninja looks.This game its kinda hard to get into cause i think if you get hit by a minion person and you lose like 10 percent of your health and you get like 100 health orbs it gives you like 1 percent of your health back.They gave the Bosses WAY too much health especailly the spider.This game is good and terrible at the same time.
AWSOME GAME !!!!!!!!
I don't know what these other guys are talkin about the game is super easy to learn. the bosses are not hard but are a challenge to beat so its fun! its like ninja gaiden but has it own style. I think this a good buy! Its been out for a while and the price as not went down. That is a sign that it is a good game. If you like ninja games this game will please you! I can't say I got upset at all in this game! It is a well made game.It has a awsome game play you have to punch a series of buttons and if you miss 1 it stops and backs up so you can try again. makes easy to learn. If you have ever played god of war you know what im talkin about. you have to press the buttons as they are prompted on the screen. over all I would give it a 8.5 out of 10.
THIS GAME IS HORRIBLE
Do not waste money on this game. The bosses are hard and there is saving or checkpoints in any level. If your in the middle of a mission and you leave you have to start the level ALL over again. This game is also repetetive. This game is hard and a waste of money trust me do not get it. The first mission boss is impossible and no checkpoints. You die easly. One thing thats good about this game is that you can upgrade your swords and customize your character which is sweet. If your not good at action games do not get this game its way to challenging. The swords are cool though when you hit someone. The storyline is ok, its kinda like Prototype because of the infected. Your not infected your just a human being. If you like challenging games and like Ninja Gaiden get it, but if your new to action and sword games dont get it.
Nice Little Treat
Ninja Blade is a fun beat-em-up game but is nothing special. Now many people would see this as a Ninja Gaiden ripoff but really it's not expect for the fact that both games have Ninjas. Now as I was saying the two games play nothing alike. In Ninja Blade the focus is to get as many kills in one combo string when in Ninja Gaiden you are racing to get to the end while getting multiple combos. Ninja Blade also has many, many, MANY QTE (Quick Time Events). In fact the only reason I don't like most of the boss fights is that you preform many of these QTE's through out the whole battle and you don't feel like you have much skill. Also your weapons all have their own use, for example your heavy sword breaks down walls, you stringed knifes help you jump over gaps, and your Ninja Star is used for putting out fires, conducting water, and moving objects. Also you have "Ninja Vision" which slows down time and adds more damage to your attacks. As for the music...it's nothing special and the voice acting is god awful. But Ninja Blade is a fun game and is worth the money it's priced at (**$).
I played the demo for this game and was impressed with the fun factor of this game. I hesitated to purchase this game but a few weeks after the release I finally picked it up. I ended up kicking myself because I waited so long to get it. The graphics are unbelievable at times I didn't know if it was video or gameplay cut scenes. Upgrading the weapons is a plus. Maxing out your weapon and taking it to the creatures creates its own adrenaline. The storyline keeps you on the edge of your seat anxiously awaiting while you progress through the game. The replay factor is excellent. Normally after finishing a game you forget it and move on to the next. With this game you try to obtain the additional weapons and ninjutsu while using the newly acquired power to destroy the creatures faster and more scintillating fashion. Also the levels are long no 15 minute levels here folks prepare for the long haul with these levels. Verdict- I Highly Recommend it.
A really great game that everyone should try. A surprise and joy to play
The game is a very good game. Don't know why it got some bad reviews. It is pure adrenaline, it takes some aspects borrowed from other games (that is the truth), but the game itself it is really good and challenging with some of the best boss fights ever seen in any game. Good Fast action paced Great graphics Fun gameplay Awesome bosses Easy to learn controls Great combos Length of the game is OK Cons Save system needs to get checkpoints in the middle of a mission (there are checkpoints), but if you turn off the console, you need to start that mission again. Need to finish the mission to get a real save game. Missions take a little bit more than an hour the first time you play (average) No multiplayer, only uploads your stats to compare with others on the leaderboards Anyway it is an awesome game and you should try it :)
Ninja 21st century
I’m usually a rpg guy , so i usually don’t buy these types of games however I was glad that i did. No it is not like devil may cry or ninja gaiden. so please don’t compare. The misinformed guy below about how’s there is only one combo for each sword is wrong!!! You must lv up the weapon via killing enemies in which you will receive red orbs like god of war each weapon has 4 levels. there are 9 acts which each stage lasting somewhat between 20-45 minutes’ long, so on a second time around on easy u probably could beat this game within 4 hours it took me almost entire day. The one thing i like about this game is the fact that you can customize your character appearrance. and you can find costumes as well, not to mention the different ninja head band emblems you can find. Also like all ninjas the main character can use ninjutsu in fire, wind or thunder. the game has excellent replay value to find all the costumes ,emblems and hidden extras and they have a leader score board to track the time and combos you perform. the boss battles are massive. Got to love it- don’t want to give anything away so just play the game already.
