Ninja Blade PC Review

For all (or most) of the Devil May Cry styled game fans, this is a nice game to pick up. As well as Anime/Manga Japanese (sub)cultured fanboys  and girls, this might also appeal to you. If you are playing on a console, such as Xbox or PS2+ systems, then there are quite a few other games that is better than Ninja Blade such as Ninja Gaiden, Heavenly Sword, Bayonetta and the list goes on. But for PC, the list is much limited, so we take what we can get. Thus Ninja Blade.

As the game progresses, you can unlock quite a few costumes skins. But very few "different" costumes, like the one in the image below.  

The game contains a lot of button clicking cut-scenes, if you mess up, you will restart from when the cut scenes begin, so you won't have to restart a whole boss fight.

Giant bosses also included...

There are is also the famed "shunpo (refer to Bleach manga/anime)" aka flash step, or whatever you like to call it.

The story doesn't hold much depth, and there isn't such a deep combo list like in DMC. And because this is ported from a console, there are a few PC control problems. The game requirements aren't that high, but you still need a slightly newer system to run this game smoothly.
With quite a few lower points in this game, all I can say in defense is, beggars can't be choosers. Unless you get a console, there will always be fewer of these types of games on PC (hope I'm wrong).
All the above being said, this game is a very flashy hack and slashy type of game. I enjoyed it, not superbly, but enough to recommend it to other PC users that have no consoles.

Ninja Blade is a good game with a bad aftertaste. Get it.
