"Oh another ninja game..." - I was dead wrong!
First, I'd like to share that when I played this game for the first few times I was only able to use my keyboard. The action is great, the movements are fluid and the premise is quite simple: survive traversing through the floors going down to reach the end boss. It was only a week or so later that I got my hands on a proper Razer controller. When I played with the ocntroller instead, I felt the change in my game performance; the difference was astronomical! I enjoyed it better and I had also finally beat the boss (normal).
Let's get one thing straight, though. Even with the controller at my disposal, the game was still rather difficult. It was indeed hard but it was at the same time fun! It wasn't that kind of challenge where I got frustrated. It was the kind of challenge that pushed me to be more careful and efficient with every single button I pressed. It really made me feel like a true ninja; a ninja that makes the most out of their items and resources in completing tasks. Every move, every second; they were all essential to my victory in this game!
Games like this are truly worth every $ spent for. Did I mention that there is a Map Editor? Go ahead and pick this gem up now and if you can, "gift" it to your friends too! This game is beyond perfection 11/10.
NOTE: Best played with a controller (I used Razer Sabertooth)
