  • Excerpt: Once upon a time, Taito created The Legend of Kage . Ironically, the game was anything but legendary. It featured a horribly bland story about a kidnapped princess and the generic ninja that set out to save her. While chopping up countless enemy ninjas and performing physics-defying platforming might have sounded like a good premise on paper, the actual gameplay was laughable at best.

  • Excerpt: The Legend of Kage 2 pays homage to its 22 year old father extremely well, with a traditional feel that should really excite fans of the side-scrolling genre.

Nintendo DS Review: The Legend of Kage 2

Video Games Reloaded
14 November 2008
  • Conclusion: The Legend of Kage 2 is incredibly disappointing, repetitive and just not much fun to play. It lacks any challenge, has dull combat and is very, very easy and short. Possibly the worst Ninja-style game I’ve played in some time.

The Legend of Kage 2 Review

GameSpot
30 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Raise your hand if you've spent the last 24 years waiting feverishly for a sequel to The Legend of Kage, an arcade game released by Taito in 1984. Now, keep your hands up if you were an avid-enough fan to know that it's pronounced "kah-geh" and not "cage." For the both of you with your hands still up, good news! Taito has answered your prayers with The Legend of Kage 2 for the Nintendo DS.
  • Pros: Challenging, rewarding boss battles, Simple but brisk action bolstered by tight play mechanics, Achievements that unlock bonus art are a nice touch
  • Cons: A few stretches of filler bog down some levels, Kage and Chihiro don't play significantly differently from each other, Can be beaten in around four hours
