  • Summary: OVERVIEW: After a much hyped wait for the XBOX-exclusive sure-to-be-hit, "Ninja Gaiden" has arrived. The story is about Ryu Hayabusa, a ninja (duh!), who lives in a mystical empire. "Ninja Gaiden" delivers bloody vengeance. THE BAD: Abandoning the Player "Ninja Gaiden" is filled with very little tutorial pop-ups.

  • Pros: -Nice Graphics -Fun Gameplay -Appropriately challenging
  • Cons: -Lacking in variety -Poor storyline -May be too difficult for some gamers -Annoying camera

An Insane Game That Recreates The Insane Difficulty Of The NES!

  • Excerpt: Making the original Ninja Gaiden (the Xbox version) better in every way, this is well worth buying if you like regularly punishing yourself! Story: Ryu Hyabusa is the last of his clan and he is on a tale of bloody and grim revenge through a series of cities and environments! Gameplay: Man is this game hard, after many issues with the first game about its difficulty, Team Ninja decided to include a 'Ninja Dog' difficulty (very easy mode), to make the game more open for...
  • Pros: Totally insane sword slasher

A challenging, fun outing

  • Excerpt: If you ever owned a NES, you may well be familiar with the name Ninja Gaiden, for it was originally a stealth action game on that platform, now remade in gloriously slick and shiny visuals for the Xbox. It is also notorious for its high level of difficulty, and is constantly ranked among the most difficult games of the modern gaming era.

The best in its Hack 'n slash genre!

  • Excerpt: Ninja Gaiden 1 is THE one and only hack 'n slash game. It is the best one I have ever played! You take the role of ninja Ryu Hayabusa, who seeks revenge after his clan is massacred by the Vigor Empire. Taking full advantage of three-dimensional space, advance through the story with only your wits, your ninja skills, and your deadly sword-cutting down opponents in the Vigoor Empire as you attempt to beat the Holy Emperor and reclaim the magic sword "Ryuken.
  • Pros: Awesome game play, good looking tricks and combinations, nice environments and weapons !
  • Cons: No multiplayer

  • 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.

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
