Ninja Gaiden 3 (Lynx)

The graphics look pixelated as hell, but the game plays pretty well! You have all your typical ninja moves, like climbing, hanging, and tossing stars. The color palette is limiting though - everything looks so red! Might as well be playing on the Virtual Boy.

When I still had my Lynx (God, I miss it!!), I managed to make it to the final boss in this scaled-down port. They actually did a pretty commendable job, even though the game was pixelated beyond belief and the music was pretty god-awful! What really hurt the game, though, was the mushy controls! The Ninja Gaiden series DEMANDED pinpoint accuracy, and that was next to impossible to get with the Lynx's d-pad.

Overall, based on the hardware, I would give the game a B-. It was still very playable, and it seems that real effort was put into making the game as true to the original as possible.
