Free of the stilted movements of many NES games, Demon Sword has the quick-paced feel of a martial arts movie, complete with a pulse-pounding soundtrack. Armed with a sword and throwing stars, the main character can jump superhumanly high and grab onto trees. While this is fun at first, your character's speed and jumping ability makes it too easy to avoid enemy confrontations and reach the end of some levels just by jumping from treetop to treetop. Until you reach a boss, enemies seem more like a distraction than a threat. Demon Sword is the rare case of an NES game being too easy for its own good. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
