Those who like their games nice and easy shouldn't bother with Nightshade, while the rest of us can heartily appreciate it for its monumental challenge and tight, responsive controls.
I loved Shinobi when it came out for the PS2, even with its over-the-top difficulty. It took me 2 years (almost) to finally slay the final boss of the game, which was just in time for Nightshade to come out. If there was... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Gameplay: The gameplay is a strong point about Nightshade. The controls are alot more fluid than they were in Shinobi. The "unique once you've mastered it" mechanic from Shinobi is still intact though if you havn't maste... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful

Nightshade is a promising game. Too bad it's not much more than that. I usually like games with a lot of challenge. But Nightshade is, even in my opinion, not challenging, just plain HARD. I just hate it when a game g... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful

Remember Shinobi. It was mediocre, but it was challenging and fun. Nightshade on the other hand is a poor game. First the Graphics in Nightshade are, well... CRAP. You get lost in this game because every thing looks the ... Read Full Review1 of 6 users found the following review helpful
