Ninja Gaiden has earned its place in the video game hall of fame. It's one of those games that even if you haven't played it, you know of it for some reason. Ninja Gaiden has become so well known due to its high difficulty level and precise use of combos, blocks and counter attacking. Another reason it is well known is for its love of gore. Amputations are commonplace, accompanied by bucketfuls of blood and ruthless finishing moves. It seems odd then that in the PS3 port of Ninja Gaiden 2, they have toned down the very two things the game is so famous for. However there is still plenty of ninja action to be found.
