  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This is without a doubt one of those most underrated and unnoticed games of all time in my opinion. The graphics alone stand to be what is a benchmark for all modern games to stand by as well as fluid gameplay and entertaining thrills along the way.
  • Pros: Sublime graphics, Excellent gameplay and replay value, Skillful modern makeover of a classic game
  • Cons: Extremely minor camera issues
