automatic guard? so this is what Ninja Gaiden has turned into?

You do know that you can also play on normal and hard mode right? Only the "Hero" mode has all of the assists. It's only dumbed down if you want it to be.

the option shouldn't even be there. if Acolyte mode is too hard for someone, then they need to find a different series to play. Ninja Gaiden should NOT cater to people who aren't good enough. period.

would it turn some people off if the difficulty was too hard? sure. but did Ninja Gaiden Black's difficulty stop it from being one of the greatest action games ever made? no.

I'm in two minds about it.

On one hand, games should feel rewarding and if it's playing its self or making it impossible to fail, it loses that appeal.

On the other hand, some people may just want a more relaxing experience, they may enjoy the "Ninja" side of "Ninja Gaiden" but may not be the best gamer in the world but still want to play it.

i dont care about the mode but man just imagine that ninja gaiden awesomeness on a handheld.

Hero mode sounds more like rookie mode to me. I was hoping it to be an extra hard difficulty level because it sure sounds like it. Can't wait to try out a demo of this title.
