  • Excerpt: It’s impossible to fault “Ninja Gaiden Black” on any level. It’s a masterfully professional production that does what it does about as well as it can be done.

Ninja Gaiden: Black

Game Over Online
14 November 2005
  • Excerpt: It calls you. It owns you. It slaps you down, kicks your ass and makes you its dog (its Ninja Dog) and does it in the most unapologetic and matter-of-fact fashion imaginable. It is also the most exciting, frenetic, and rewarding gaming experience in recent memory; the kind that comes along so rarely and keeps you coming back to it time and again for one relentless beating after another.

  • Excerpt: It’s beginning to really grate on me now. Picture the scene. I’m sitting in a dark room with only the warm glow emanating from the TV as my sole source of light. My teeth grinding through sheer frustration and my palms, sweaty from the numerous encounters I have guided lead character, Ryu Hayabusa (from DOA fame) through. However, my progress has come to a complete standstill, I seem to have hit that mythical brick-wall.

  • Summary: Ninja Gaiden is undoubtedly a fantastic game - but flawed. Everyone will enjoy the game and should definitely try it but how long they are willing to commit to the game all depends on how short their fuse is due the inconsistency of several areas of the game. It should be taken into consideration however that no game is perfect and Ninja Gaiden is far from bad. It provides an exciting, fun and very challenging gaming experience true to it's roots.

Ninja Gaiden

Gaming Evolution
8 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Over All, A very good game. Those who wanted a full on assault Ninja title disregarding the over-used stealth aspects, this is a must buy. The intricate combat, the wonderfully fluid techniques to keep it motivating, the special effects, the difficulty, the graphical nature, the atmosphere and settings and wondrous characters in this fantasy world distinguish this as one of the best action titles around. Very recommended.

  • Excerpt: The game is fast paced and strategic, not a button masher but rather one that makes you think before you attack your enemies.

  • Conclusion: Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden: Black will test your reflexes like no other game. This new edition is 100% worth your money at it's low price. Gamers who already own the original without Xbox Live, this will also be a sure thing just for the Hurricane pack add-on. Just beware that you have to run through the game to unlock the new mission modes, but if you're a big fan, you will probably welcome the idea. Overall the final product. is pretty unbelievable!

  • Conclusion: Ninja Gaiden is everything you could want from an action game and more. The repetitions in gameplay can be slightly annoying and the difficulty could put you off but don't let it. Buy a copy, no, buy two copies so you can hang one on your wall.
