The concept of Devil Ninja 2 is a fantastic one, battle your way through hordes of monsters in which you fight the occasional boss. The finished product however just isn’t as successful as the actual concept.
You play as a ninja in the devil’s world and you must progress through the game until you defeat the final boss. The screen constantly advances, with the idea being you attack and jump, by using the on-screen buttons, when the time is right.
Devil Ninja 2 does boast superb graphics, with each boss looking exceptional and different from the last. For what seems to be a very detailed game, it is nice to see very little lag, which can be a common fault for this type of game.
Where Devil Ninja 2 does fall down is with its difficulty, it’s insanely hard. Players can take three hits before you die, there are replacement hearts along the way but they are far and few between, making it extremely difficult to really get anywhere in the game.
Devil Ninja 2 looks and plays the part, but the difficulty needs to be turned down a bit.
