    Killing NINJAs will never get old!

    I actually started playing this game in the arcade before it even came out on the NES. I remember being so excited when it did come out for the NES, and played it constantly in my younger days. The graphics and sound a... Read Full Review

    It was good for its time, but bad by today's standards.

    The Legend of Kage was a fun-to-play game at its time. I remember myself playing it from time to time back when I was a kid. From 7 year old to 10 year old, I just kept on coming back to it at times, but with all those a... Read Full Review

    If you can't stand the heat.......

    The Legend of Kage has long been one of my all-time favorite games. People have dead-panned this game as long as I can remember simply because of how random the gameplay can be. True fans of this title know that you ... Read Full Review

    I never get why so many people hate this game.

    A lot of people seem to hate this game, even though most of them have probulay never even played it. I personally, think it is one of the best NES games ever, and if you do not think so, then read on. First of all, th... Read Full Review

    Now this brings back memories...

    Legend of Cage is one of the first few games I ever remember playing for my NES when I was a kid. The game was in fact repititious and rather short, but addicting nonetheless. I'm not entirely sure how many times I playe... Read Full Review

    Short and repetitious. Short and repetitious. Short and repetitious....

    The Legend of Kage is a basic side-scrolling action game in which the player assumes the role of the title character, shooting and hacking his way through hordes of ninja on his way to rescue his girl. There is little el... Read Full Review

    "Nice, but limited"

    Legend of Kage its one of the first NES titles. It´s a good game, with a different form of gameplay, where you can jump high and to several directions, shoot shurikens and use a nunchakus (i guess). A good arcade t... Read Full Review

    The first tree jumping game ?

    First of all I have to give Legend of Kage credit. The whole flying ninja jumping from tree to tree sporting nunchaku and throwing ninja stars is pretty great. You play as Kage and apparently Kage is a marked man, in... Read Full Review

    A disgrace to games, you better hope you never played this, or will ever have to. . .

    A pathetic game, just another baaaad endorsement for mortal kombat I guess. Why not legend of tarzan? All you do is jump from on tree to another, and fight enemies that look like some failed zebras anyway. Honeslty, what... Read Full Review

    This review is more like a counter-point to the other Legend of kage review...

    I played this game when I was but a weee lad and have played it ever since. This game may not be brilliant, ground-breaking, or have any story at all, but it sure is fun. I love dashing through levels, jumping from tre... Read Full Review
