    Console port garbage at its finest. Sure, the action, setting, and graphics are fine. But it all runs at a snail's pace in terms of performance, even to this day with my stellar gaming PC. Keyboard controls are a mess, and it doesn't even bother helping you with QTEs as it shows XBOX 360 BUTTONS on the HUD instead of keyboard buttons!

Another great game to add to my "terrible games" library. If you want to enjoy this game to its fullest, then play it on console or use a controller on PC. Otherwise, stay away if you are a PC gamer with standards! Expand

    Friends say game will not save, but save points come after 45 minutes in a level. The game is annoying due to crashes, bugs and glitches and the quick-time events are so bad.

    Great game for PC gamers looking for some Ninja Gaiden style action. The port does not take full advantage of high end PC specs, but at least it runs pretty well on my mid-tier laptop (i5, 6GB ram, HD 6750M). The game's story is like an impossible high budget b-movie. It's so over-the-top that it feels like a parody. There is a lot of QTE, a little too much for my taste, but the cut-scenesGreat game for PC gamers looking for some Ninja Gaiden style action.

The graphics are generally good, but not perfect as some textures and models feels detached from the rest. Despite the very different gameplay style, Ninja Blade has controls and level design reminiscent of Dark Souls, a much cooler game also developed by From Software. Collapse

  1. Some technical troubles notwithstanding, this derivative action game is a bunch of silly, stylish fun.
  2. Frequent boss fights, excellent cinematics and great animation keep you glued to the screen for the first thirty minutes. Alas, oversized bugs which use the same attacks over and over, tiresome QTE sequences, useless combos and weapon upgrades will get under your skin.
