You know a game's a classic if it's almost 10 years old and still manages to do more things right than many other contemporary titles out there. The graphics, though dated, still haven't lost the incredibly lush quality they had back on the original Xbox. The gameplay is ferocious; ridiculously fast paced, intense and full of depth. It cuts to the bone in ways that GOD OF WAR and its multitude of button mashing ripoffs haven't discovered how to yet. The level designs and enemy types never get boring and are full of diversity.

Playing through the game this time though, I did notice more monotonous sections than I remember. For example, there are some bonus areas where you have to kill countless waves of respawning enemies in order to gain a health power-up or some other goody. Killing the same foes again and again for 1/2 an hour can easily wear on your patience. Also, you rarely have to worry about dying during these sequences because the enemies are constantly are dropping health orbs.

Overall, if you've never experienced NINJA GAIDEN before and have a PS3, this is a perfect place to start. It's a hard game, but I've never been able to find a action game since that has managed to replicate ninja sword and sorcery action with such slick and manic power as this title. After a round of playing, you will sweating, shaking, frothing and desperate for more.

Futaro Yamada would be proud. :)
