Many thanks to Frank Gasking for pulling this one out of the bag. It’s a game ending that we had been batting backwards and forwards for a few years now but I have only recently decided to add it to the site!
This third instalment of the ever-popular Last Ninja series seems to deliver the goods as much as any of the other games – if not more! So how does the game ending compare? …
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Sorry, but we just HAD to cheat 😉
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: To be totally honest, I don’t actually know! I mean, I’ve seen the ending (see above screens and download) but I just can’t work out what the storyline is trying to tell me!
Saying that, there is a final scrolling message on the final screen to complete the story, which reads, “THE SHOGUN IS VANQUISHED. YOU ARE VICTORIOUS. CAN ANYTHING THREATEN THE WORLD AGAIN? THERE CANNOT BE ANOTHER ADVERSARY SO STRONG, OR CAN THERE? ALWAYS BE READY TO TAKE UP THE CAUSE SHOULD YOUR SPECIAL SKILLS EVER BE REQUIRED AGAIN. PRAY THEY ARE NOT.“
Vinny: However the storyline goes, it is certainly a VERY COOL ending and looks AMAZING! The graphics and animation are clear, colourful and very well drawn.
The music is great, too. It really sets the scene and assists in completing the story.
FINAL SAY: Definitely a GOLD MEDAL winner and one to download, RIGHT NOW! (“,)
G.E. RATING: 10 / 10
