Title
I remember playing this ages ago during the Summer break between my Sophomore and Junior year in high school I think. The game is pretty damn hard, I actually had to play this one on easy mode and even then the game would kick my ass many times. But its a pretty solid action hack n slash game, and almost reminds me of Devil May Cry at times. The boss fights are pretty intense and fun, and there is some solid level design. At the same time the game is pretty cheap at times and there will be times enemies will attack you from off screen and you die like a bitch on anything harder than easy mode. Also you play as this one sexy ninja in a skimpy outfit sometimes, I guess they realized if you die a lot they probably should make your character visually appealing. But yeah its a pretty average hack n slash that has good moments, but I wouldn't consider great.

    Ninja Gaiden Black for the original Xbox is THE way to go for this. The Sigma version removes and rearranges content in a very unnecessary way.

    Genuinely considering getting SS just for this one, both MGSs, RDR1 and some occasional new games.

    It makes absolutely no sense to lump NG04, NGB and Ninja Gaiden Sigma on the same entry while other games such as Demon's Souls have different entries.

    I really want to love this game but having no lock on + the worst camera I ever experienced in a hack'n slash game kinda makes it a pretty agonizing experience considering how punishing it can be.

    The sigma version also has Rachel's chapters and those rly broke the pacing for me personally, I think they could've been optional

      I find that the camera really grows on you and I personally love it. Keep fighting through and you’ll stomach it. Not to say there isn’t their problems with it, there is. But it’s not a huge loss that detracts of how good this fucking game is

    Couldn't understand why this game wasn't as revered as God Hand, then I got to the platforming sections :/
