Metachronos overall score = 8.7 / 10

Positive
- Great production values
- Combat is engaging as ever with plenty of attacks
- Captures the spirit and tone of the previous games

Negative
- Bosses are impressive but easy to takedown
- Control can be a royal pain

To play, you'll first need to flip the DS sideways. Every bit of the action takes place on the touch screen, with the top screen relegated to cutscenes and the minimap. The touch screen also holds the key to your controls: Every move you make as Ryu, from running and jumping to slicing and dicing, is done with the stylus. The only time you need to touch a button is to block, which can be done with any button--even the D pad. It's a pretty comfortable setup, and we found that keeping our thumb on the D pad for this purpose worked out just fine (if you're a southpaw, you would use a face button in a similar manner), though using one of the shoulder buttons is also a viable solution.



The game clocks in at eight hours or so, but once you're done, there are some unlockable goodies to check out, and you can upload your karma score (accumulated by busting out your most skillful moves) via Wi-Fi to compare with others. Besides, the core gameplay is so good, you'll want to return to it, possibly to check out the higher difficulty levels, which are a bit more compelling. All in all, it may be watered down a bit, but Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword is still a spicy and savory mix of familiar combat and sweet stylus action, and it pulls you into its world of dastardly fiends and mysterious, shuriken-slinging martial artists.
