CheatCC says, "In the end, Ninja Blade is an excellent action game that fans of the genre will love. Of course, many - including my peers in the industry - may scoff at this title's similarities to Ninja Gaiden and even God of War. Still, action fans owe it to themselves to keep an open mind and at least download the demo. If you absolutely abhor QTE mechanics, know that Ninja Blade is full of the stuff. However, the implementation of the QTEs is done exceptionally well; I typically loathe the mechanic but found it immensely enjoyable in Ninja Blade."
