Game description

"It's nowhere near as accomplished as the genre's heavyweights, but anyone able to see it as the roller-coaster ride it is should have a great time." - Videogamer.com


Ninja Blade is set within modern day Tokyo, where parasites known as alpha-worms have mysteriously appeared, unleashing a wave of human destruction as they rapidly spread east, reaching the shores of Tokyo. With the future of humankind hanging in the balance, an exclusive and elite team possessing highly specialized skills is formed to eliminate the enemy onslaught, and ultimately save mankind from complete obliteration.

To help defeat the genetically mutated monsters, players will have the special abilities of "Ninja Vision" and "Todome" at their fingertips. Enabling "Ninja Vision" will allow players to detect and analyze potential enemy weak points, secret paths, and hidden information within the environment. Beware though, while using "Ninja Vision", characters become susceptible to excess damage. "Todome" is a special attack that destroys an enemy characterï's core (heart), by dealing a fatal wound. Balanced and calculated use of both these abilities will be critical to progressing through the game.

A variety of weapons, tools and 'Ninjutsu' specialized Ninja powers offer an enticing array of options. Varied environments force players to think strategically about which set of weapons and tools will be most effective at conquering their way through different levels. Everything from dual wielding swords to huge great swords each have distinctive features and characteristics, so choose wisely! 'Ninjutsu' is a special power that results in an explosive electrical force to either stun enemies or protect oneself from attack. Only true Ninja Masters can achieve this technique. Interactive Quick Time Eevents - Scattered throughout integral parts of the storyline, characters will come across various quick-time events where players will have the opportunity to directly interact with in-game cut-scenes. Quick reflexes will be rewarded as players interact with controller buttons as directed on screen during intense battles.

Ninja Blade offers a fresh twist to the classic ninja saga by basing all 3D gaming maps directly from the actual skyscrapers and building tops in modern day Tokyo.

Great Ninja Game

This game is a great alternative to Ninja Gaiden. I would not recommend it for keyboard players, as I struggled a lot through that control method. If you have a controller though, the game plays great. It's very fast paced, has long boss fights, and a great combat system. Like Ninja Gaiden, the game is very over the top. There's a lot of quick time events though, so that might be a turn off for some. Other than that, you have your standard sword gameplay, wall running, jumping puzzles, range attacks, magic, etc. Being as how Ninja Gaiden isn't available on PC, I would highly recommend this game in its place. You will have a blast from start to finish and likely come back for more.

Nin-nin-nin...

I really liked this game. True, it doesn't have high levels of polish, superb-platforming-game-mechanics and the like, but it's fun, action packed and offers a lot of ways to kill the baddies. Fans of old-school action games will appreciate the simple console like interface/options and straightforward swords and stars gameplay. Don't go in expecting an a-list game here: the gameplay in NInja Blade matches its own aesthetic of a SF/Horror B-Movie. It does that really well and playing through is a lot of fun.

A nice Hack'n'Slash to play mindless.

If you miss some game close to the Devil May Cry saga you might consider this little gem made by From Software. The story is quite nothing new, the game points more on the "relaxing" smashing monsters with three sets of weapon: Katana, double daggers and dual-handed sword (the three of them upgradable 3 times). Along with these weapons you'll also be able to use a giant shuriken with the power of the elements like wind or fire, useful especially to face the scenario to continue. The games honestly reminds me of Devil May Cry, ok, but also God of War as the game is full of Quick Time Events where you have to press the button at the right moment while your ninja will perform crazy actions (some of them so badass and crazy that you would expect them from an action B movie). Don't expect a game worth an oscar, but it's a nice way to kill... time (and monsters).

Ninjas having fun

A really great hack and slash game with great boss battles and the feeling that everything is possible. What starts as the usual generic hack and slash experience becomes a very entertaining game with exaggerated cutscenes that makes the game even more fun. It's like playing God of War in a ninja based game with sense of humour. Ninja Blade deserved more attention than it had. Even though it was a generic game from the genre the fact it is more fun than others I've played.

Good game some what hidden gem

Its a decent hack and slash with over the top cutscenese which give it a good feel and not like a budget tittle. It's glory days were on the xbox 360 but on PC it's not bad with wide screen and HD resolutions this game is a good time waster and its not as dramatic or prominent as the other tittles that its mimicking but its a good game nonetheless with a good range of weapons, enemies and its a joy to play through if you can stomache the over the top silliness that is the story.
