slither_maggot's Ninja Ryukenden II: Ankoku no Jashinken (Nintendo Entertainment System) review

Stands The Test of Time

This is one sequel that stands alongside it's predecessor. The sound, gameplay, and music are all just as good (if not BETTER) in comparison to the original. For fans of the franchise (from this particular era) this game is a must. Not only does it give you the thrill of the experience you had playing the first game but some components have been added, such as the Shadow Clones. In addition, instead of having to "jump-climb" walls the game added an up/down "slide" wall mechanic which made the play more fluid and some parts of the games' landscape a little easier to traverse without the worry of falling while trying to execute and jump and re-cling like in the first game. The boss battles are still fun and challenging and the cutscenes are still top-notch. There isn't much a player couldn't like about this game. True old school, original Nintendo faithfuls will find this game a must-have in their collection.
