Eikon commented on The Legend of Kage:

I would definitely have to disagree with your one star rating. While Legend of Kage is hardly to be considered a NES classic, I think it deserves at least three stars.

First off, that is not a sword Kage is holding, those are tonfas. An interesting and unmentioned feature is the ability to jump very high distances and climb on trees. This makes for exciting air combat, as you must use your tonfas to deflect incoming shurikens. Another overlooked feature is that the game is infinite, with increasing difficulty. Each time you go through the game's four stages, you start anew and the graphic scheme changes to a new season, such as winter or fall.

These are just a couple of things that made LOK original and ahead of its time. For those who like a pick up and play challenge with lots of action, don't pass this game up.
