Ninja Blade is like a so-bad-its-good sci-fi /martial arts B-movie that someone accidently gave a 200 million dollar budget. It is the very definition of "more than the sum of its parts." Combat is repetitive, sound is forgettable, graphics aren't the best, and you'll spend as much (or more) time handling Quick Time Events as you do engaging in "real" gameplay. But when everything comes together, this turns out to be one of the most fun games I've played in a while. You might want to consider a rental, but if you're in the mood to just slash some monsters and see some crazy stuff, Ninja Blade delivers.
