Ninjas. Cool Japanese dudes who wear black and are big on stealthy, silent combat, right?

Not the whacked-out warriors in Ninja Blade for whom stealth is anathema, and automatic

weapons and brightly coloured costumes are the order of the day. This is no straight-faced

Ninja Gaiden clone, instead it’s an anarchic, often idiotic, action title that features some

haphazard platforming with a torrent of mad combat. Hyperactive and hilarious.
