demodocus's Ninja Gaiden II (Xbox 360) review


I originally put off buying Ninja Gaiden II due to various reviews. But after finally deciding to buy it, I was very surprised to find out how great this game actually is.

The story spirals into a one-man war against infernal creatures referred to as Fiends, as ...
