Also for the Neo Geo, Ninja Combat adds high definition graphics and high tech music to the Ninja Gaiden theme. Go it alone or with a friend to wipe out the enemy forces from within. Choose from different ninja warriors, each with his or her own special fighting techniques. If your cunning, agility, and razor-sharp sword aren't enough to overcome the evil armies, try using the awesome magic at your disposal!
Ninja Combat does deliver the awesome graphics and sound you'd expect from the Neo-Geo, along with a game that provides multiple personalities that each possess different attacking styles. With unlimited continues, however, you can reach the end of the game in no time.
I'm sorry. But somewhere price has to play a part in buying a game. This game is just too expensive for the few hours that it takes to beat it. The audio is great, as are some of the action scenes but when you can just continue, and continue, and continue where is the fun?
Ninja Combat has two major flaws: unlimited continues and repetitive game play. I counted the number of continues it took me to finish the game the first time I played it and it was about 30. If the unlimited continue feature could be eliminated, this could have been a good game.
Unfortunately, Ninja Combat fails where Magician's Lord excels...fun! The game play and action quickly become too repetitive, not to mention easy! Not too many enemies can withstand your firepower! Looks and sounds great but there should be more.
