It is so hard to understand Jonathan, some times! I think maybe if he were to just sllllllllow  down a little, just a little!

From the demo seen it has all the essentials of NG game i.e. over the top violence, combo driven gameplay and an interesting story premise. What's not to love?

Ninja Gaiden  was and is one of the best games I played on the 360 it was hard but rewarding at the same time. When I beat ALMA I believe that was her name it felt like I just bust 100 nuts at once. that bitch know she was hard to beat but man it felt good to finally get past that part. they need to keep that first Ninja Gaiden formula and bring it out on the X1 .

What the F*CK is with all the zombies in games and movies these days? PASS.

It's going to be time to move to the Himalayas and meditate with the tigers soon. I'll stick around for one more generation of games then I'm gone. LOL

Wow, I can see this game not attracting a lot of Ninja Gaiden fans.

the tiny bits of gameplay I see look cool but I wouldn't doubt it's not so great

Give Ninja Gaiden franchise to Team Meat...

Then you'll see a good NG game.

Is this game going to suck as many genitals as Ninja Gaiden 3's original version did?

Why the sudden shift from realistic graphics to the over-done, contrite papyrus-watercolor-art style? Seriously.

Soft action and more zombies? We seriously have enough fucking zombies in games thanks. We want a hardcore challenging Ninja Gaiden game. But hey the kiddies want something easy and mass market, so we won't get that. Remember, gamers don't want to play game anymore apparently, they want to play "interactive content experiences".

softened action? Sorry, but I like my Ninja Gaiden as hard as possible. I don't want no flaccid Ninja Gaidens, thanks.

I love Ninja Gaiden 1-2-3 on NES over the reboots

Ninja Gaiden 1 on Xbox was perfect. NG2 was a step back but still ok. NG3 was so bad it should be melted down and used for litterboxes.

With a record like that... NG:Z gives me little hope.

@meatz666 At first I was like Team Meat? wtf? thought about it for a bit....actually, not a bad idea, bring it back to its roots and such

@meatz666 No.... They need to outsource the next Ninja Gaiden game to Platinum Games. THEN you'll see Ninja Gaiden at its finest.

@SoljaD2005 The reboots eat the originals for a snack. 2D platformer was hard, 3D rape your face in half and then do unspeakable things to you ninja gaiden is better.

@Adavanter They redid NG3 , Razor's Edge, it's supposed to be much closer to real NG but I haven't played it yet because I don't care. It sits lonely on my shelf with it's friend NG2 and no Xbox case because they never released one on 360, which they should, it's the same damn game as it was on Xbox.

@Adavanter Alot of modern games now are meant to be streamlined and simpler and less gamey for modern and younger fans, it's pretty fucking tragic. It's happening everywhere. It's all about looking pretty, and playing well is a very distant second.

@Grenadeh No.... Get it straight. Ryu was killed in a duel with Doku and was then brought back to LIFE by the falcon. That's not the same as being undead.

@Grenadeh @keldarironfist Don't forget that they use their greatest powerup........Daddy's Credit Card to finish the game, without actually playing it!

We definitely need more of those! :/
