Last Ninja - The Return is a 3D gaming world that embraces and exemplifies all that is great about 3D gaming, while masking its short-comings. Multiple camera angles, motion captured key animations, sweeping cinematic vistas, environmental dynamics, special effects, some of the best music and 3D sound effects you are ever going to hear. All seamlessly bound together by a compelling narrative and a gameplay and control system designed to allow novice players to get hooked but with a subtlety of play that will satisfy the more experienced player. This is particularly evident in the combat system, which allows players to stamp their own style on it by using almost endless permutations of armed and unarmed moves, stealth tactics and the use of Dragon Magic.
