Ryu Hayabusa is certainly a busy chap. He's gone straight from full size antics on the Xbox 360 onto the DS for some miniature fun.

This latest game in the series is a full game all on its lonesome rather than a port of a console game, coming complete with its own plot. It revolves around Ryu, a bit of a love interest/partner, Dragonstones that need questing for and the origin of the Dragon Sword. But it's not the plot that matters really, is it? It's the action!

The action is different to anything you've seen before in the Ninja Gaiden series, courtesy of the DS's touch screen and stylus. Pretty much all the action is controlled using the touch screen. Players drag the stylus around the screen to guide Ryu, swipe it for sword slashes, tap to throw a shuriken and flick it upwards to get our ninja hero to jump. Even Ryu's trademark Ninpo abilities are touch screen controlled, unleashing torrents of energy with a few taps of the stylus.

Saving the world can be a big job, but that doesn't mean it can't be done on a small games machine.
