Are you guys serious? That demo was TERRIBLE. I love Ninja Gaiden, but Ninja Blade sucks.

A rental or a buy at $20 at best. Game looks great, but I really think they over do it with the QTEs. People please stop comparing it to NG. NG set a standard that every game that follows it will suffer from accusations of it being a 'rip-off' or 'wannabe'. That's just like all of the open world games out there that receive the same labels as GTA.

Now on another note, if I am not mistaken, From Software is developing a game called 'Demon's Souls' for the PS3. From what I hear, it is a sequel to the game 'King's Field'. Go to gametrailers.com and check it out, it looks amazing! I believe Sony is publishing it, because at the intro, I saw 'Japan Studios'. Looks to be an action/adventure or action-rpg. No QTEs.

Ninja Blade seems like a watered down version of Ninja Gaiden. What it lacks in depth though, it sort of makes up in style.

The demo was pretty good. Not quite Otogi level with those silly QTE's and a rather lame boss battle. Hope the full game is much more varied and it should be worth a purchase when it drops a bit.

Demo is now out on Xbox Live.


Seems pretty decent to me from playing the demo. Not as good as Ninja Gaiden, but from what I can tell from the demo, not as hard either. For me, this game seems like a rental.


Anyone play it yet? Impressions? Day One?

It looks like a complete knockoff of NG. I haven't played it yet, but I the lack of originality is hilarious.

Actually it isn't a complete knockoff of NG. It does have similarities but it feels different enough to not feel like a ripoff. Combat is slower and i like the way you fight the spider boss.

Yuck, way too many QTE moments , spider boss was also pretty damn repetitive. 20 or less game.

Well, the game's out now but I can't help but be reminded of Vampire Rain from the character models and overall look of the game.

I'm digging the game. It's different that most of what's out there. Yeah it's got plenty of QTE's but it's kinda like an interactive CGI movie at times.

No, I kept glitching in the first level, when you beat the first boss...I quit for a while, just went back to it, found out that installing it to the HDD fixed that glitched when I searched online...it worked. I'm barely in the 2nd level.

Cool. Let us know how long it is. I almost picked it up today, but I can't imagine it being more than QTE, random fight, QTE, random fight.. I love QTE's, but with all the things coming out lately, I didn't know if it'd be worth buying or just renting.

the window glitch?, restarting the level should also fix the problem.

All you guys bashing the game based on a couple of minutes demo play should give it a second look. This is simply a great game. not as difficult and deep as NG, but still has awesome actions. I'm not sure whether it will be a top seller but this game is much more enjoyable than so many other games out there.

Totally loving the game, I'm on mission 4 IIRC. Oh and heads up, there's a free costumes & emblems set via DLC on the marketplace:

I agree. I'm having a lot more fun with this game than I had with both Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden 2. The finishers on regular enemies are just sick.

I'm on mission 4 and it's pissing me off. The plane takes too much damage and it's game over!
