  • Summary: Shinobi is hard. As in "you have only five tries to beat this 20-minute level packed with enemies and tricky platforming challenges" hard. Yet as challenging as this action platformer is, it remains approachable despite its formidable challenge.
  • Pros: Hard but fair combat pushes you to improve, Lots of achievements and unlockables, Early levels feature excellent atmosphere and design, Difficulty settings scale a variety of factors for more accessible play
  • Cons: Long late-game levels aren't great for short play sessions, Uninspired vehicle segments

Shinobi

1 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The original arcade Shinobi game (1987) was one of my biggest gaming accomplishments when I was kid. Not only did I complete it more times than I can remember but it also featured a kickass protagonist named Joe Musashi, a highly trained ninja who single handedly took down an entire secret ninja...

  • Summary: Another month, another Atlus published Naruto Shippuden game. This time around developer Tomy has released a fighter based upon later portions of the Shippuden storyline. The DS isn't well known for having competent fighters, outside of a few Bleach games that were developed by Treasure, but even...

Shinobi 3DS

Gamereactor
9 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Sega-samlingar kommer som bekant jämna mellanrum, sist var det i samband med underbara Blaze Mega Drive Arcade Ultimate Portable som vi återigen fick chansen att gotta oss i ljuv Mega Drive-nostalgi.
  • Pros: Suveränt spelsystem, roliga strider, väl avvägd utmaning, smarta svårighetsgrader, långt äventyr
  • Cons: Fiender attackerar utanför skärmen, gimmickartade minispel, trist grafik

Shinobi 3DS

gamereactor.it
19 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Shinobi è uno di quei franchise che, nell'ultimo decennio dello scorso secolo, trovarono un pubblico fedele e diversi sequel, ma che l'avvento del mondo dei videogiochi in 3D relegarono in secondo piano.
  • Pros: Difficoltà elevata ma con un controllo accessibile, dà soddisfazione, richiede pratica ma ha un sapore arcade
  • Cons: Grafica scarsa, invecchia rapidamente

Shinobi

gamereactor.es
19 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Shinobi es una de esas franquicias que tuvo su público fiel y varias entregas durante la década de los 90 y que la llegada de las 3D al mundo de los videojuegos relegó a un segundo plano.
  • Pros: Dificultad muy alta, pero con un control asequible. Es de esos juegos que cuando lo dominas te sientes como un verdadero profesional. Requiere práctica, pero tiene un sabor a arcade clásico que nos ha encantado.
  • Cons: Visualmente es un poco castaña y el juego decae en su último tramo.

Shinobi - Test

Eurogamer
22 November 2011
  • Summary: Trotz der Kritik macht der neue Shinobi aber nach kurzer Einspielzeit richtig Spaß. Die Steuerung ist präzise, die Aktionen eures Ninjas sind durchdacht, haben den nötigen Wumms und ihr werdet von Anfang an gefordert.

  • Excerpt: Les joueurs chevronnés le savent bien : la série des Shinobi a en son temps constitué une véritable référence dans le domaine des jeux d'action. La version arcade du premier épisode, mettant en scène les aventures du ninja Joe Musashi, a marqué au fer rouge tous ceux qui s'y sont essayé, et c'est...

Naruto: Shinobi Retsuden

Wii Mania
25 February 2007
  • Conclusion: Questo episodio di Naruto è entrato nella mia lista personali dei giochi più brutti mai visti su console Nintendo e credo che vi rimarrà in testa per molti anni. La sua longevità si esaurisce una volta scartato il cellophane di copertura, poichè quello è probabilmente il momento più entusiasmante...
