This game blew me out of the water and I wish Temco would made a a sequel to this wonderful title.The graphics were just insane and I forgot I was playing on my Nintendo DS throughout the game.The original Japanese signs for the elements were very good.
Temco keep up the great work!
Matt9Actual score: 9.5. This is one of the most polished and graphically stunning games to grace the DS. The touch-based gameplay feels much like its xbox counterpart, which is impressive to say the least. Most importantly the game is fun without the frustration that I've come to associate with Ninja Gaiden and any other game Tomonobu Itagaki directs. I consider this game to be something like the God of War of the DS: fast-paced (but well-paced.), amazing to look at, and worth replaying the instant you finish.… Expand
GiancarloGatti8i would give this a 8.5 but definitely not a 9. Good things about the game: cool ninpo attacks innovative combat system that is really really easy to learn
get to switch handhelds weapon which keeps things fresh
boss battles are intense
Bad things about this game:
Graphics remind me of a harry potter game on a gameboy
No ability to buy different swords
some bad camera angles when fighting bosses
once you learn attacks nothing else you can learn should put some really good attacks like disappearing and appearing again walking on walls and then slamming them down and backstab icon should appear when you go behind an enemy press it and they'll od a rouge like backstab awesomeness haha… Expand
JoeStass7Easily one of the best looking games on the DS, NG:DS does not disappoint in terms of graphic presentation. The control system is nearly flawless and the attacks you'll be completing on screen feel very satisfying when mixed with the sound of the slash. This game easily would have been a must buy and a 10 on the DS... if there was just more to it. Paying $35 for a game you beat in 6 hours is not my idea of fun, no matter how great it looks. Also, while the combat does feel very satisfying the whole game through, it also feels very lacking in depth. In fact, if the game were any longer, you'd probably just grow tired of it. This is definitely one of those games where you'll just want to go in with a few friends and take turns playing it. If you get 3 friends to join you, you can all still beat it in one day!… Expand
