After slicing the competition to ribbons on other consoles, Ryu Hayabusa brings his ninja skills to the Nintendo DS with Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword. Players use the touch screen to control Ryu's actions, throwing shurikens at enemies and performing a series of slick moves. The visuals look spot-on, though players must get used to holding the DS sideways to get the full experience. The quirky gameplay should keep things interesting, relying more on movements than D-pad actions. Last but not least, what would a Team Ninja game be without extraordinary unlockables, such as a female ninja? Dragon Sword strikes with a vengeance later this year.
