And the Eclipse Sycthe, which is somewhat similar in execution to the Dark Dragon Blade, or the Unlabored Flawlessness. In any case, I give it 4. All the story boils down to is just a flimsy excuse to string a bunch of unrelated levels together. Well, you are better than I then, my friend! I liked most of the new weapons. I mean, all the never-ending multiple boss fights with no save stations start wearing on your nerves after a while.
All are super-hard and challenging. This is big for me. Armed with an assortment of ninja weaponry, help Ryu to skillfully maneuver through a world fraught with peril and danger. But just a little shy of perfection. I just can't stand how Team Ninja does this, and they do it in all their games. It has some really neat ones, like the Kusuri-gama, which is chain-and-sickle affair. Art of the Inferno is still a fave, of course.
It is worth buying, definitely worth playing. . No big deal, but still annoying. Once you find it, you pretty much have no need to use any other weapon ever again. You would think game developers would be better at this by now. And really, I just can't talk about this game without comparing it to Ninja Gaiden Black. That's all well and good until the action mounts up.
Stop treating your game audience like we're all super-horny teenage boys. Maybe this is because the game was produced through Microsoft, not Techmo. Product Description This long-awaited sequel to the best-selling Xbox action game pits legendary ninja Ryu Hayabusa against hordes of malicious enemies as he sets out on a journey that will determine the fate of the human race. I had multiple favorites throughout the playthrough. But now you have to pay for them through Xbox Live! Featuring a newly implemented auto-healing functionality and save point system, as well as an extensive story mode and multiple difficulty levels available from the start of the game, the gameplay is accessible to more casual players and challenging to even the most demanding gamers. And while it is still a spectacular game, there are a few glaring flaws where it just comes up short.
Also it is fun when leveling them up and seeing how they change. Your actions will decide the fate of mankind — can you prevent destruction at all costs? I don't know why, but whatever the reason, it leaves me feeling irritated. Some parts feel a little rushed, like they could have worked on some stuff more but they just ran out of time. But then the difficultly level suddenly ratcheted up to unbelievable proportions. Black is really good, but doesn't have the same polish this game does, so this one wins out by a hair.
But Art of the Piercing Void has its uses too. This game so freakin' awesome! Like it or not, you're pretty much ground-bound. You've still got Ultimate techniques, which look cool as ever. This game is built from the ground up for the hardcore gamer, for sure! I finally figured out how to download some of the videos from the people on the leaderboard, but I still can't figure out how to upload videos. It's certainly the most violent game on the 360 - definitely not for kids! I found each one suited to specific situations, and used them all.

Only tricky part was on the rope climbs, but no biggie.
So don't pay much attention to it. The giant cleavage is distracting. It is not short, so you do get your money's worth. Now while a lot of people are fans of the original Nintendo game and Black, I'd have to say, starting on this was the best. I did miss the Nunchucks, but the Tonfa make up for that somewhat. Was that not established in the first game? Just enough for you to notice it on occasion.
While enemies are lavishly detailed, the environments are often hit and miss. And while taking all the thought out of it does let you just concentrate on the fighting, it's still kind of annoying. And with the help of youtube, I made it through. But I wish I had had some explanation of how to use Ninja Cinema at least. No story in mission mode. Also, I thought Ryu's whole family was dead.
