Summary: Shinobi combines many elements from old-school ninja platformers like Ninja Gaiden, Shadow of the Ninja, and of course the Shinobi series itself. While the 3D aspect of the game is not well developed and the graphics are generally bland, this challenging side-scrolling action title will please any fan of the genre.
Summary: This game is hard. Correction this game is really hard but it is fair. If you like to be challenged then I highly suggest getting this game. Not only is this game like 12 dollars its also has an old school type of feel. It reminds me of a game that I would play in the Sega genesis as a kid. At first you are going to get your ass kicked but the more you play the better your reflexes become and you are going to feel like a legit bad ass.
Summary: If you are into side-scrolling, ninjas, or challenge, this is a good game to consider buying. It was nice that it didn't burn a hole in my pocket either. I bought a new copy and the package came at a reasonable date. While it's not a perfect game; the controls take some getting use to, and it's depth-perception is a little off, it's worth the money and time. Banzai!
