  • Summary: In an effort to fill the gaps in its 2009 Spring lineup with something (anything), Microsoft brings us Ninja Blade. As a calendar gap filler, Ninja Blade does a fine job of filling a slot on a release list and taking up shelf space.

Ninja Blade

Fragland
8 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Ninja Blade trailer promised improbable and impossible over-the-top action going from swinging between buildings to surfing a missile in mid-air. In other words an abundance of acrobatics, but does the trailer really show what the game is all about or are we going to be playing yet another Ninja...

  • Conclusion: At the end of the day, Ninja Blade may not be the biggest or brightest game to hit the 360 scene lately, nor even necessarily the best, but it’s still worth getting. The combination of combo-slash and QTE action, the regular boss fights, and just the sheer OTT nature of it all can be quite...

Ninja Blade Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The QTE moments in Ninja Blade are so superfluous, in fact, that at times I felt like I was playing Dragon’s Lair instead of a third-person action game. Unfortunately, the story of Ninja Blade ’s Ken Ogawa and his mutating gene fighting team is as cheesy as the tale of Lair ’s Dirk the Daring, too.

Review – Ninja Blade

  • Conclusion: The reason Ninja Blade lets us down is not because it is Imitation Ninja Gaiden(tm), but because it takes ideas from other games in order to create something unique, and still ends up being pedestrian.

  • Excerpt: Games are supposed to be fun right? The minute players start to rate games based on visuals or gameplay alone, it’s no longer about the fun anymore. This is perhaps why Ninja Blade is doomed to fail.

Ninja Blade

Game Over Online
4 October 2009
  • Excerpt: There's a game in here somewhere that I like quite a bit, concerning ninjas working for military task forces, trying to destroy alien monsters in modern Tokyo. Unfortunately for Ninja Blade , that game is buried underneath a dodgy combat system, and that's buried under several tons of quick-time...

  • Excerpt: It's unlikely you'll have ever played a game as bizarre as From Software's Ninja Blade. This is the Xbox 360 exclusive that was rumoured to be Microsoft's answer to Metal Gear Solid.

Mediocre Swordplay and Godzilla-Sized Craziness

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: This ninja doesn't lurk in the shadows and wait for the opportune time to strike. He kills everything?even towering titans and godlike beings Graphics: From Software has a keen eye for framing action in both the gameplay and cinematics.
