Team Ninja's 2005 update of the Ninja Gaiden series was one of the most remarkable looking titles on the Xbox. More notable is how it still stands today as one of the best action games ever released, difficulty level be damned. Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword tries to carry that mantle into the handheld world, and for the most part it does its pappy proud. It's one of the best looking games on the system, and the touch-screen based gameplay should be looked at as a "how-to" manual for other developers, Nintendo included. The only real issues are the lack of difficulty and the game's brevity - this one is short!
