Incredible Remake of a Cult Classic

Marcos "proletariat", Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: MY ORIGINAL REVIEW: This is based off of a kind of "underground" NES cult classic. As for the DS version, I think it's really cool that this was released in the first place, given that the original was sort of an lesser known gem and may only be remembered by a lot less people than games like, for instance, Ninja Gaiden - a similar title, or all of the other greats like the Mario franchise or Contra, Zelda, Metroid, Punch Out...

Too easy? Or too hard? Actually, both.

  • Summary: I haven't played the original Legend of Kage, but I did after I played this sequel (I'll make a review of that later). Anyway, I was expected some old-school 16-bit-ish action when I saw screenshots for the game. Being the gamer I am, I jumped straight into it. This game seems like it would've been an incredibly awesome one. The graphics are lush and detailed, the music rocks, the combat was excellent and felt great, and the storyline is epic!

  • Summary: It was fun playing Legend of Kage 2. However it was quite hard. The reason I bought this game was I like Legend of Kage on NES, and I enjoyed the game very much. I finished the game with Kage in normal mode. I tried to collect every item and ability in the game, but I got bored replaying the missions over and over. I don't even know how to gain new ability, though.

Old school simplicity, with a few new twists

  • Summary: I'm a big fan of some of the retro revival going in gaming (HD remixes, modern port anthologies, sequels/remakes, etc.) The GBA in particularly was fantastic for bringing some great games back, and I guess part of me still prefers the more simplistic old school controls and simplicity versus having to deal with fifty button combinations to go with my state of the art graphics. (I use my DSi more than my PS3.

  • Summary: For those who remember Kage from the NES this game is sure to be a hit. Got it for DH last Christmas and it is one of his favorite games.

ninjas rule

  • Summary: Great side scrolling old fashioned ninja fun. I'm on the 7th level so far and I think I've killed about 12,000 ninjas to get there. Its a good game for a grown up gamer like myself who has no desire to be in 1st person, 3-d, virtual reality, or whatever. Run, jump, slash punks with a sword, and take out fools w/ chinese stars. Sounds cool doesn't it? Also a good game for younger kids (my own for sure) because its not too complicated.

Good Old School platform action game...with ninjas!

  • Summary: I loved the original Arcade game and I was eagerly awaiting this release. I grew up in the late 80's/early 90's and loved playing the Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man games for the NES, making this game right up my alley. The gameplay is simple but fun. I love how you can do all the cool ninja things like throwing shurikens, jumping 500ft into the air and climbing walls. This game kind of reminds me of the NES Ninja Gaiden games but set in feudal Japan. Pros: -NINJA'S!
