Excerpt: Its hard to recommend this game. However its hard not to. It makes me want to cry. Right after I've smashed it to pieces. Buts a bloody good game none the less. In this you play as Ryu Hayabusa who has had a sword stolen, and he is off to try and get it back. You encounter lots and lots of bad guys, who want to kill you. Thats pretty much it for story. You play in third person view, and then hack and slash your way through the levels.
Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden is essentially a beat em up game that sees you take up the role of Ryu Hayabusa as you slice and dice your way through an evil empire as revenge for the brutal slaughter of your fellow ninja and villagers. Over the course of the game, Ryu fancies a large array of opponents to fight including guards, other ninja, zombies and the usual big boss at the end of a level.
Pros: great gameplay - stunning graphics - good sound effects - cheap for pre - owned copy
