About This Game

It was July 7th, 2011.

While investigating reports of unlawful weapons trafficking, peacekeeping forces encountered an unclassified carnivorous species occupying a small village in Northern Africa. These rabid creatures were easily provoked and resistant to conventional attack. Eight specimens were encountered in the region now referred to as "Ground:ALPHA"... Only four were successfully contained for study. Victims of the attack were quarantined at a research facility nearby. These victims displayed signs of internal liquefaction and accelerated necrosis, similar to symptoms of other flesh-eating viruses native to that region.

But it wasn't a viral outbreak. It was a parasitic infestation. A previously unidentified species of hook worm was found beneath the skin of the Ground: ALPHA specimens. These parasites, we call them "Alpha-worms", laid dozens of eggs inside their hosts, which in turn produced numerous larvae. These larvae penetrated the bloodstream and triggered a variety of genetic failures. However, unlike most genetic failures, these symptoms were not fatal. Instead, infested victims were larger, stronger… and driven by hunger. Using the research gained from the Ground: ALPHA specimens, a team of some special individuals were assembled. Minor outbreaks occurred over the next few years, but elite squad quickly put them down. Which brings us to the current situation in Tokyo...

I really seem to like this game. I had it sitting in my inventory until I saw some screenshots uploaded by( cheese:)
I read a lot of comments that ts too over the top. Last time I played god of war and Devil may cry these games were also not very normal. I think a sci fi slasher should be as exagerated as can be. The graphics are decent , maybe showing there age but still great. The QTE in this game are really cool. You can actually skip them but why would you do that?
I just played through the first chapter and it took me about an hour. I killed a spider that was 100 times bigger than me so thats a good start.

Check some videos and maybe you will like it, we only have a few ninja games on steam. Its pretty good

Will rate it once I am done playing

i Think, i have played meny actiong ames before.... but of all of this, this is the best one i have played out of all of them.. i have never been good t metal gear solid rising or devil may cry, i ggot stuck on the part of mgs2 were you go to Detroid Zone and fight Meme Man.... i did also got stuck on the part of devil my cry 3,, where yo fight the gint cerberos. BUt, id igress NIJA BLADE, its a very good game its like in it, you play as ken from SUPER STREET FIGHTER 2 TURBO who is ryu hayabsa's brother, and maybe also shinobis.. strider hiro, unfortunately, does not make an apearance..

anywaay, ken is a g is a very good coold protagonoist, & he fights big insecs, like spiders, and his dad kills him but then he isn't dead.... so wants revenge. which is, like, TOTALLY ♥♥♥♥iN HARDCORE MAN!!!!... but yea.., it is like.... then there are also quick times.. and you have to pres the buton, or else time will rewind and then you will have to press buttons again.. so yeah its, its very good.. and i think u you should buy it.. ok. thnk u, for reading my review.. it is was a very hward review to right.. my fingers, they do not presss keys wel.... they are, very big, and hard 2 cntrol..

Oh and, also, the game doesnt run well, it is very badly optimized, and you must disable the 30FPS CAP every time you run the game but i do not feel this is a bad thing, in fact is a good thing, because sciencists like neel degrease tyson, dr Phil have prooven that the human eye canot see above the "cinamtic level" (24 frames per second) AND if they coud, it would look very bad.. actualy, i dont think they were the ones who said that, but my point stands, IMO....

BUGGY! Do NOT buy this game. On two different ATI cards and on WIndows 7 AND WIndows 10 this game has all the lights and effects bleed through buildings and characters. Simply unplayable. If I could get a refund I would! Sadly, I bought this game before Steam put that system into place to hold ♥♥♥♥ developers accountable for putting out garbage ports like this!!

This game isn't great. But that doesn't stop it from being hillariously crazy and in your face. The gameplay is bland and gets boring. However, this is made up for by how stupidly action-packed the cut-scenes/QTEs are. Annoyed by QTEs? That's fine, you can set the QTE difficulty separately to 'fool-proof' so you don't even have to do them. And you can customize your ninjas colours super thoroughly. Play as a plain grey boring guy for one level and then you can be a rainbow or a sweet neon pink messenger of badassery. I just finished this game today on live stream and can honestly say it's one Hell of a roller coaster ride.

a mediocre hack and slash game with mediocre platforming here and there.
the game tries to go over the top with the scenes and bosses but kinda falls flat and sometimes makes you cringe a bit.
story is also mediocre and some of you can probably see the plot twist a mile away.
game is also buggy in some parts here and there but nothing game breaking but there is one part when you are fighting a certain boss , you can stunlock him by spamming your heavy weapons and he will never be able to move.

gameplay is pretty neat with different weapons to make combat not so stale but i wish they would try to make it so that changing weapons can make you go on and make different combos instead of giving you a weapon switch animation.
the enemies are cannon fodder with dumb AI but some of them have unneccesarry big health just so you need to hit it a few times more.
there is platforming but not very compelling, but they did put a few hidden stuff in each level so exploration is encouraged in this game. Ninja blade feels a bit like prince of persia with all the parkour/ninja like moves but not as fun as the latter.
this game is also chock full of QTEs, its literally everywhere in almost every scene and in every bossfight which kinda makes the game feel shallow. i think they were trying to get the god of war feeling but its just not there since if you fail the qte it just rewinds you a few seconds back so you can never ♥♥♥♥ it up. it will only affect your end game rating and score.some levels also have a turret section which is pretty weird for a game called ninja blade. its not that fun and is pretty much an on-rail arcade shooter just made to prolong the game.

soundtrack is forgettable but okay.

graphics are decent for its time although still not that pretty and choppy kind of like a ps2 game.

the ending is pretty bad and not really worth noting.

i wouldnt say its a crappy game, its an okay hack and slash game with a few problems here and there, just not at full price. maybe get it at 50-75% discount if you are really interested.
