"Ryu Hayabusa returns in this action-packed and totally unique game following Tecmo's thrilling Ninja Gaiden series. The Team Ninja-developed title is a 3D action game that makes full use of the DS's most standout feature: the stylus. The entire game can be controlled almost entirely with the touch-based motions. You guide Ryu about the play field by tapping in the direction you'd like to go. Slashing the touch pen from down to up makes Hayabusa launch an enemy into the air, into a perfect position for combos. You make Hayabusa jump by tapping the screen twice, and can then point to enemies to shoot shurikens at them and perform a downward thrust attack. Even your ninja arts make use of the stylus, requiring that you draw shapes in order to perform the special attacks. Buttons are used only for defensive moves."

Ninja Gaiden DS Demo Coming to Wii

IGN - January 30, 2008

Submitted by lstormy10 (27) at 12:03PM PST on January 30, 2008

"The Everyone's Nintendo Channel has been a part of the Japanese Wii for a couple of months now, but the promise of downloadable DS demos has resulted in nothing more than a bunch of Touch Generation non-game samplers. That's about to change, thanks to just about the most hardcore gaming series around. Tecmo Japan announced today that it will release a demo of Ninja Gaiden DS through the service in the middle of March. The demo will also be available at DS Station retail kiosks."

IGN Review : 8.6 (Great)

IGN - March 7, 2008

Visually, the game's a stunner, and the action is intense and almost non-stop. I don't think the game makes the ultimate case for touch-screen exclusive control in action games, and I certainly don't think stylus control is better than traditional control for the Ninja Gaiden design. But what Team Ninja created for the Nintendo DS definitely works in turning something traditional into something different and unique without forgetting about the fun, too.

1UP Review : A- (Awesome)

1Up - March 19, 2008

Submitted by apujanata (18) at 5:31AM PST on March 20, 2008

The overall package still manages a cohesive, attractive aesthetic. It's clearly among the best-looking titles for the DS platform, and it's a refreshingly mature change of pace on a console known for its kid-friendly fare. The audio portion isn't quite as impressive, though, due to a tragic lack of voiceovers. A little speech could've breathed some real life into the antiquated (yet attractive) hand-drawn cut-scenes.
