As a young girl, Kurenai was leading a normal life. That is until her father was brutally murdered (for a powerful weapon) by 'The Black Lizard Clan' and she was left for dead, hanging on a wire for days. A few days later, Kurenai was rescued by some fellow Japanese People and was saved. Now an adult, Kurenai is seeking revenge on The Black Lizard Clan who killed her father and left her for dead, using the wire they hanged her with as a weapon called the tetsugen - which is just as deadly as she is. Players get to play as Kurenai, hacking and slashing and using lots of special abilities in this 'Kill Bill' style game. Written by MovieFan998

Awful, yet addicting...which is a bad thing...
5 June 2006 | by markagerholmSee all my reviews

Just as there are some games out there that make you think "Whoa! I can't believe we have this technology!" like Resident Evil 4 and GTA: San Andreas, there are games at the other end of the spectrum that make you wonder just how little effort was made to make the game at least playable. Red Ninja falls into the latter category. It seems as though most of the ideas of the game went into making the protagonist's kimono as skimpy as possible, complete with a g-string underneath (most of the time you're staring at her bare @ss). I picked up this game because, as far as I know, it's the only game in which you use a flail as your main weapon, but even the flail is clunky and impossible to use. Above all, the camera never moves on its own, never repositions itself for the convenience of the player, and is very difficult to control, making controlling your character most of the game's challenge. This blatant rip-off of the Tenchu series has only two points of interest: the level designs are unique and innovative (although a level that kills you fifty times before you can beat it once is not challenging, but rather a cheesy way to hook a player), and the boss battles are fairly inventive. Besides that, the story is garbage, the enemy AI is well below par, and the ability to seduce guards is a cheap way to sell this game to sex-deprived deviants. A very poor game, mostly cashing in on its (ahem, LACKING) sex appeal.
