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.Read more ›
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.

I'm confused why he's wearing his black ninja suit when this is describing how he got the dragon sword. If anything, it would make sense if he was his blue ninja suit.Published 21 months ago by senortito8
