Overall, Ninja Blade provides a banal and vapid experience that only truly dedicated action junkies without any other plans could justify playing. At best it's an okay action title that feels phoned-in and relies far too heavily on QTEs to make up for the lack of gameplay. At worst it's a frustrating experience that could single-handedly be used by concerned parents to demonstrate what a waste of time games are. If they used just Ninja Blade as evidence, they'd be right. This game is a total waste of time.
