So far the best thing about Ninja Gaiden II is the feeling that you're fighting 12 billion copies of the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I'm serious, you cut an arm or a leg off and these guys still keep swinging! There is only one word to describe such brutal unnecessary gratuitous disgusting over the top gaming carnage of this sort: AWESOME RuFfNeCk came a-runnin' last night when he heard me yell, "Holy crap, I set them on fire and they're still coming after me!" AWESOME For my first real experience with Ninja Gaiden, I'd have to say that it was a great success. Don't leave me Itagaki!
