This game is not for the faint of heart. Great skill and practice will be required to master this title. Ninja Gaiden II is a must for action/platform fans, and even if you’ve never played one of the games in the series this is probably the best place to start. You won’t find many action games of this calibre, and the game definitely has to be experienced at least once for your life to be considered complete.
The Nintendo Entertainment System was home to many mean-spirited games, and Ninja Gaiden was a prime example. It beat you down, chewed you up, and spit you out. But it also dragged you back with its fast action, sweet ninja powers, and excellent controls. Now, Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos is available for the Wii's Virtual Console and like its predecessor, you'll cry foul at the game's sadistic nature yet still find yourself clawing through the pain to conquer its insane challenge.
