Fun but pretty hard

Ninja Gaiden is an overall great game but there is very frustrating parts in Ninja Gaiden that make you want to punch a hole through your TV. For some reason you have to hit some enemies just right with your sword or else they'll hit you. This happens especially with those annoying killer birds or whatever they are. Small seemingly non-threatening creatures are your worst enemy in Ninja Gaiden. Power-ups are useful but for some reason you never get the invincibility power-up when you really need it. And Let's face it, the final boss is near impossible. For one thing, the boss has about three forms(I think) and if you lose all your lives on the boss you'll have to restart the entire level! This only happens when your fighting a boss. If you lose all your lives in any other part of a level you'll be sent to the checkpoint in the level. It still doesn't make sense to me why they would do this. So in conclusion, if you can get past these problems Ninja Gaiden is a very enjoyable game. On the plus side the game has fantastic music, enjoyable fast paced action, and a storyline which most NES games don't have much of.
