By far the hardest game this gen. First and second mission were all nice and normal, but the moment you went into the third mission, you were expected to be a freaking master. You needed to platform jump through these mushrooms that kept rising WHILE fighting enemies on mid air. You had to time your limited boost so that you would only use it when needed and not lose any space.

I had one old video that showed how you HAVE to play during the game. After that mission, the dificulty just keeps going up. Then you have to be all the time in mid-air, switch between weapons on the fly, time your booster, aim at grapples WHILE doing all that, and fire at enemies while aiming at grapples.

It got insane VERY fast. The graphics are phenomenal though, and the sound holds its own. One of the best games of this generation IMO. I had completly forgotten about it, until i put it in today. Cool

You know what. I actually have picked up this game a couple times and have come damn close to buying it. The screenshots on the back of the box always intrigued me. I was told by several people though that it wasn't good so I always put it back down. I've heard that it has terrible controls, is this true?

Yup. The game was created for the Dreamcast, and it feels that way. The game doesn't use the second analog stick and has a manual camera.

However, the controls DO become second nature when you get used to them.

Laughing Yeah it does. How do you think i can aim for those grapples in mid-air?

And you will feel extremly cool when you do air acrobatics and then se the whole room wasted. Think Equilibrium level acrobatics with the air dimension added.

Allrighty then. I'm convinced. I'll pick it up. The game has been out since the XBOX's launch so I should be able to get it for cheap. I'm guessing 20 bucks at the most.

Laughing Maybe I'll give it a try. Challenging games are a rarity these days. Thank God (and TN) for Ninja Gaiden.

OMG, I can't find it. I went to EB, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, heck I even tried Toys R' Us. Can't find it anywhere.
