Personal review
A classic hit from Tecmo, Ninja Gaiden II satisfied the people's desire for more butt-kicking ninja action. With more enemies, power-ups, and awesome ninja skills, you could have even more fun testing your ninja mettle.
With good graphics and a kicking soundtrack, it was definitely a pleasure to the senses. The only downside was the difficulty of the game; it's downright frustrating at times.
Enemies always appear at the most unopportune times to push you into a hole or knock you off a wall, but that makes it all the more satisfying when you complete the game.

Official description
In Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos, a new villain, Ashtar, is revealed. Take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa and rescue Irene Lew, a former CIA agent, from Ashtar. Destroy the Sword of Chaos, a weapon of great power forged from the bone of a demon. Use techniques such as the Fire Wheel or the Windmill Throwing Star and attack while holding on to walls and ladders. Use the most innovative technique of all - the ability to create Shadow Clones, orange shadow versions of Ryu that will constantly follow him, repeating previous actions (moving or attacking) in a delayed cycle. Once again defeat henchmen, creatures and bosses with new fighting techniques and even more weapons as you progress through multiple stages on your way to destroying Ashtar, Jaquio and the Realm of Chaos.
