There will be blood...lots and lots of blood.
There are action games, and then there is Ninja Gaiden. Fans of Itagaki's revered franchise already know what to expect when they boot up their copy of his latest title. Ninja Gaiden II will not set the world on fire or re-invent the wheel, but it will satisfy fans of the original all while delivering one of the most satisfying and brutal action games ever created. Everything about the game screams sequel. More blood, more overly-proportioned women and of course demons all mixed within a convoluted story that screams Japanese anime. If you come for the combat there will be no disappointment on your face, however if you are expecting the revolution of the genre you might want to check your expectations at the door.
