Easily the best third person action game i have ever played. So fun, and extremely challenging. The cinematics are wonderful, even if the story is pretty insane. The in game graphics are beautiful. The boss fights are really tough, especially after level 3. In fact, the first three levels sort of feel like training for the rest of the game. Once you get into the city on level/chapter 4 the game becomes incredible. No mashing the x button to get through the level. You have to use ever combo you can, and switch up your attacks since enemies recognize patterns. So very very awesome. Run towards four enemies using the wall, jump off decapitating two, immediatley block and roll to avoid some exploding shurikens, and slice the hell out the last two. If you have an Xbox get it. At least rent it.
On another note, is anyone on Live besides me? I have Rainbow 6 and Project Gotham 2.
I was told by the Best Buy here (in Iowa City) that they wouldnt get the game in until Friday. I am on live (as Doc Whiskey) and I have Top Spin, Unreal Championship, and Mechassault
Wiggum: There's more bootleg tapes in here then..uh..Lou? Lou: A Chinese Wal-Mart? Wiggum: I guess that'll have to do. But whoever owns these tapes is in more hot water than.. Lou: A Japanese tea bag? Wiggum: Why don't you lay off the Asians Lou
My God, is this game ever sweet. I've never been so happily pissed off by a game ever. It's extremely difficult, but you keep wanting to play over and over because it's so fun. I played it for about 3 hours last night and have only made it to the beginning of level 3. Good fun.

If anything could lure me to buy an XBOX, it would be Ninja Gaiden. It's no surprise that it is hard as hell. The NES games made me scream, bite my controller and kick my console on occasion...especially during the Bloody Maalth stage where one bat is positioned PERFECTLY to hit you just as you jump across a chasm. I never did beat those games.

I'm not the poorest game player out there and have no problem saying I can finsh almost any game I play. I was so looking forward to this game when it was announced. The game is great to look at, plays great, and level design is awesome. But this game is seriously unfair and cheap.
The solders and ninjas "respawn" when you return to areas, you can literally throw over a 100 stars into solders and they don't die, I save my game with none around me. I reload me game and all of a sudden those black dynamite ninjas are all over me just as the level opens and I can't even move and I get killed. They werent aroudn when I saved so why they there now?
I understand they wanted replay value and wnated a challenging game but things like this are very fustrating and serious turned me off the game real quick.

That specific bat was the cause for the first time my dad heard me swear. I'm in the living room, playing the game, get to that area as my dad walks by, die there for the 5th straight time, and shout at the top of my lungs, "YOU SON OF A BITCH!"
Obviously, they don't have final hardware yet, but AnandTech (anandtech.com) got some hands on time with the 360, and it's the most I've seen of the system yet. It looks like a very well designed piece of hardware.
