    I have reached in a later part of the game and the problems are starting to appear, but anyway I do think this game still is pretty great. It could be better yes, but it is still a fun experience.

    The game itself is punishing difficult for beginners who attempt to play it on Normal. After getting to the second level I changed to easy and started having a lot more fun. It's still challenging, but not in the punishing way Normal difficulty was. After playing, learning the mechanics, especially the block and counter. I really did like this game. Not sure it deserves a 20 by otherThe game itself is punishing difficult for beginners who attempt to play it on Normal.

    It's a diffcult game. But I think this game is too simple because you really only can be two skills, dodge an attack and attack with your weapon or magic.

    It may be overpriced and too short, but Ninja Gaiden Z has a few thrilling moments.

    Getting your arm chopped off might actually be a better option. Just avoid this. [May 2014, p74]
