Images of Ninja Blade

FromSoftware's & Microsoft's Ninja Blade is yet to have a official release date in Europe, but it's planned to hit the US at the end of March. I'm not sure if the following images are new, but we didn't have them in our database.

Looks ok, shame it's just quicktime event after quicktime event though.

It´s not really as you say. The demo Is direct acction gameplay- QTE-gameplay-QTE, And that combination It´s not bad at all. I have the Ninja Blade demo, and the gameplay is quite cool, nice movements, sprint button, ninjitsus, combos, ninja vision... And the QTE secuences are very well done, with nice motion capture.

We cannot judge the game with a demo yet, let´s see the final version of the game.

Finally played the Demo and it's ok, very Japanese. To make it as simple as possible, it's Ninja Gaiden meets Godd of War. Might be a decent rental in my opinion but I wasn't a fan of the newer Gaidens or am head over feet for the God of War franchise.

So more in the mold of Prince of persia then.. keeping you in it, but affording a pretty action camera at the same time.

This game looks like a rental at best, been fairly underwhelmed with what i've seen and what have been reading about it... seems like it won't touch NG or DMC and action, and fails at the pacing of its QTE's unlike GOW...

People have tended to just not want to like this game from the beginning, regardless of if it ends up being good or not.... It doesn't look THAT bad in my opinion... at least not as bad as the criticism that it's been receiving just because it resembles Ninja Gaiden.

Ugh... for god's sake, stop using uber bloom to create DoF effects, PLEASE!!! Otherwise it looks pretty good, but I dunno about the gameplay, it seems like this type of gameplay gets old after about 2 or 3 games of it...

Is this Ninja Gaiden with auto pilot. Anyone know QTE from Shen Mue? But in this game its applied throughout the entire game if im not mistaken and on the same platform as the game its so shamelessly copies. Like it's for those that find Gaiden too hard, gonna play this( if you can call this playing).

Why anyone would bother with this? The gameplay looks like ass compared to Ninja Gaiden 2 and Devil May Cry 4. From Software churns out so much crap every generation.

now only if they made it2 disc instead it would've been a hit, it's more of rental after playing the demo.:(
