Ninja Gaiden is the best action game on any system EVER! It features amazingly beautiful graphics running at a smooth 60 frames per second, and a deep fighting system rarely seen in an action game, and superior AI that will kick your ass if you are not good enough.
The game's story is fairly forgettable, basically a Ninja who's out to avenge his village and save the world from an evil emperor, blah blah, but really, when the action is this intense, who cares about the story? The game is HARD, especially the first couple of boss fights, but this game really reward finesse and skill rather than your button mashing skills, so if you take the time to learn the game, you'll be rewarded with an amazing experience.
