"One of the hardest and most enjoyable games on Xbox"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ninja Gaiden is a definite must buy. Its about 15 hours long, is very challenging and has a lot of replay value.

It has stunning visuals, a decent storyline and is action packed. It has plenty of puzzles to solve along the way and plenty of great boss fights.

"Truly breathtaking..."
5 stars"

First of all, let me acknowledge the game from a graphical point of view – this game certainly raises the bar for any game out there. The level of detail is just astonishing on each and every set piece, may that be the sublte ripples on the water when Ryu waddles through it…or even the dry ‘skin’ of that monstrous axe-weilding zombie. Everything looks absolutely fantastic. And that's just for the in-game graphics, the FMVs are another story (jaw still on the ground…)

The controls are very responsive and tight. It really feels as though you're slicing through that darn black ninja that just threw you an explosive shuriken earlier (thanks to that force feedback). Executing various combos or wall-running around a corridor is a breeze.

The sound deserves a high praise as well and really sucks you in. Thanks to it's Dolby 5.1 support, listening to that winged skeleton dinosaur roar in your face is oh-so sweet.

All that said, Ninja Gaiden really (REALLY) deserves all the praise it can get. Thanks to Team Ninja for bringing us the most breathtaking (and challenging!) game to date. If you don't already own an XBOX – it's absolutely worth buying it just for this game and if you DO have an XBOX but haven't decided already on getting this game…WHAT THE HECK'RE YA DOING THERE READING THIS FOR?! GO AND BUY IT NOW!!!
