    Other Ninja games suck compared to this.

    Ninja Gaiden produced by Team Ninja is one of the best games I've played in a long time. Besides the fact that this game will make you break a few controllers, this is one of the best. With graphics that are almost life-... Read Full Review

    I haven't had a experience similar to this in years. It is almost too perfect to believe.

    Very few games can really provide intensity, challenge, fun, and enviornment at the same time. Ninja Gaiden, however, excels in all of the categories. Although challenging, the game is possible. Gameplay: 10. Action ... Read Full Review

    This is the kind of game that leaves you speechless from the very beginning to the very end, and when you finish it you will want to brag to everyone who hasn't played it that you played one of the greatest Action games ... Read Full Review

    Easily the best action game...

    Even though I'm not a great fan of action games this one overpassed my expectations. When trying it I just bought it for its amazing images. Anyway, this game is a lot more than some stunning visuals. Even though the sto... Read Full Review

    There is one word that sums up Ninja Gaiden as both a game and technical achievement and that word is 'Stunning'. Games of this quality and sheen come few an far between so make sure you play this game. Your support will... Read Full Review
