    Graphics are improved. But sound is pretty much the same (except for 3 new BGM tracks). There are only 200 single player levels, where as Nv14 (the freeware game for PC) has 400. Multiplayer requires more than one copy of the game (not worth it) and Wifi Online Capabilities have been terminated... leaving us with a nearly pointless level editor. Controls are very impressive and it fits the DS well. But the levels just aren't as challenging as Nv14. If you want a real challenge, then download the freeware. If this game had more replay value, working WiFi, a longer campain, and single-card multiplayer, then all would be good. But "would-be" just isn't. Expand

    If you are into Ninja games, you'll most likely enjoy this game. Really addicting and somehow challenging, non-linear story mode. I wish Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection worked for this game, it doesn't.

  1. The easily frustrated should probably stay away, and for what it is, the game's MSRP of $29.99 seems a bit steep. [May 2008, p.89]
  2. The gameplay is simple and easy to master, but it is also challenging enough to keep gamers pounding themselves in disgust because of whatever mistake they're bound to make in the game's 200+ levels.

    This is an extremely polished game that fits the DS like a glove. It's got style, grace, and attitude, and it feels good to play. The physics are great, and almost every level is fiendishly clever.
