I've generalized all the gritty details into a single FAQ. Please read this while the game is loading. Or, at the very least, read the one in the preloader.

9/23/06 After an amazing 3 year run, Ronin is finally falling off top 50 of all time. Thank you for all the reviews and personal e-mails from fans all over. Work on the sequel had just begun - yeah, it's 3 years late, but better late than never right?

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

The best Newgroungs action-RPG to date.

The gameplay was fairly challenging and rewarding. There was a lot to discover to help your character become a proper bad ass in order to help him mow down the competition even more efficiently. The controls were responsive, especially considering that this game was released long before the DS and the Wii, or the implementation of motion and touch screen controls in the first place.The story itself, while not bad, wasn't all that epic and the hentai was rather superfluous, but no less a pleasant surprise.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing, yet unexpected

This game is extremely original, gameplay, storyline and all. Didn't expect the hentai-ish bits though, that caught me off guard. Although the controls were hard to use at first, it got easier as I progressed. 10/10 overall, amazing game =)

One of the best games I've ever played, didn't know it was so old before playin' it on NG. 100/10 if possible.
