Ninja Blade Demo: Playthrough & Analysis

December 30th, 2008 |

From Software's Ninja Blade is available now to Japanese Xbox Live Gold subscribers in the form of a playable demo, offering around nine minutes of action. We've taken a look at the demo and initial impressions are favourable - it's a pared down Ninja Gaiden with stupendously large bosses and insane levels of detail. Unfortunately, it is rather reliant on Quicktime Events - a gameplay mechanic that really should have died back in the era of Dragon's Lair.

DMC has style in character models and gameplay mechanics... NB is not bad but its got alot of QTE which is placed well enough and the fighting animations are good it does not feel like a DMC though where you can get SSS and taunt etc. The only problem I have after playing the demo is the dudes ninja head protector is extremely lame.

Who cares what it plays like? I buy games to show them off not to play them. Can't wait for my next tech demo, Killzone 2!

And you know that Killzone 2 plays bad cause you've played it right? You're such a fvcking fanboy. Get of 360s nuts.

And this game just looks like another Ninja Gaiden. Only with a much worst main character. And whats with the ultra Americanized sounding characters? Arent they supposed to be Asians? And why does the black guy have to sound so much like a stereotypical black guy? The stories seem poor already.
