I've held off from buying the Nintendo DS for a couple years now. I used the excuse that there really wasn't any games for it that appealed to me. While the DS line-up of games have gone beyond the Nintendogs, Brain Age and Pokemon lines it was still limited in heavy action-oriented games. It took the announcement and subsequent release of Team Ninja's latest title in their great Ninja Gaiden series to finally make me pick up a Nintendo DS. I am more than happy and glad I broke my embargo of Nintendo's newest handheld. Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword was all I had hoped it would be and actually made the DS fun to play with.

Anyone who games a lot knows that Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden series for the Xbox (soon for the 360 as well) was seen as a game for the hardcore of the hardcore group of gamers. This series was unforgiving in its difficulty and didn't baby the players. While such a thing may alienate the more casual player it does pose as a great challenge for gamers who have seen and played all types of games and where a challenge to their gaming skill comes only rarely. I was concerned that transferring that difficulty level from the console to the handheld would prove to be a problem, but Team Ninja seem to have found a balance in Dragon Sword's overall execution. While Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword is not sadistically difficult it's also not a pushover. There's enough of a challenge in the gameplay that it shows the spirit of what the Ninja Gaiden series has always been: a challenging and fun action series.

Dragon Sword also made great use of the DS touch screen and stylus system by pretty much using it as the end-all and be-all of moving and fighting throughout the game.

Tecmo's classic franchise Ninja Gaiden makes its debut on the DS with fantastic results. Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword continues the adventures of the heroic and deadly master ninja Ryu Hayabusa, as he takes on evil forces including all sorts of beasts and baddies. What makes Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword on the DS so unique is the game's control scheme and presentation: holding the DS sideways (like with Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and Planet Puzzle League), you move Ryu with the stylus, and attack enemies by slashing across them with the stylus as well. This allows for some great combo attack strings that are just plain cool. Not to mention that this is one of the best looking and well animated games to hit the DS yet, especially from a third-party. One thing the Ninja Gaiden series has always been known for is the challenge it provides, and while there is a bit to be found here, it isn't nearly as super difficult as past games in the series have been. This can be good or bad depending on your own experience with the series, with the game's only other real flaw being that the touch screen controls aren't always as precise as they could be. However, everything else about Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword is spectacular: from the cut-scenes to the storyline to the epic boss battles, this game is a blast. All in all, Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword is one of the best recent third-party titles to hit the DS, and for fans of the series that own Nintendo's handheld, this is an essential pick up.

This was a really challenging game on "normal" dificulty. It can get a little repetitive against the same enemies before you get to the boss battles. The enemies got harder as the game went on though. The boss battles were really challenging. You will probably need a new screen protector after you play this game, LoL. You use the stylus mainly in this game. I am glad I had a DSi XL for this game, because you had to hold the DS like a book for the gameplay. The graphics were excellent to me. The special powers, sound effects, and music were great. I thought the story line was good for my taste. They even had a nice little ending story while the credits were rolling. This is the best game I have played on the DS so far. Definitely a 5 star game in my book!

This game was fun for me to play. I have been waiting for a game like this since I got a DS.

Ultimately, its a game where you run around and kill bad guys by slashing them up. Not having played many of the other Ninja Gaiden games, I can't compare.

The gameplay is very, very similar to God Of War on the Sony systems: you run around and slash, and you get some super powers as the game progresses. However, there are no puzzles to solve.

To some reviews that pointed out drawbacks, they are true, and thus this isn't a five star game. You do just hack and slash, and it can get a bit repetitive (but I do think that its fun with the stylus). Also, a lot of the gameplay scenes are not real 3d.

All that said, a game like this on the DS is long overdue, and I'm glad I have a copy.
