Nightshade

  • Excerpt: Not so long ago, we could enjoy playing Shinobi, a game that was blessed with an immense range of uncomplicated action. Yet it wasn’t “fun for the whole family”, because a lot of gamers found Shinobi hard and unfair.

Nightshade review (PS2)

  • Excerpt: Hibana is a kunoichi. That means she’s a female ninja, in case you wondered. Nightshade is fond of such fancy words, and weird ninja names, and bottomless pits, and wall running, and sword-based combos and distracting white jumpsuits that cling to every one of Hibana’s many curves.

  • Conclusion: It’s a fairly typical romp, Nightshade’s plot, with a number of parties racing for a powerful item. The whole thing is presented through a number of cut scenes, some in-game and others as CG. It takes on a very comic book-like vibe in how the plot unfolds.

  • Excerpt: 2002 saw more than a few updates to classic games, and Sega's Shinobi upgrade that saw Hotsuma and his world make the leap into 3D was certainly one of the higher-profile updates. The problem was, most of the attention lavished on the game wasn't for good reasons.

  • Excerpt: Dangerous curves and all of the killing a player can ask for. SEGA released Shinobi on PS2 in November of 2002. Now, (2 years later) they release a follow up to the story of Hotsuma. In Nightshade, you play has Hibana (a corporate assassin).

PSX Extreme
18 February 2004
  • Excerpt: One of the most recent gaming trends has been taking old franchises from the 8 and 16-bit days and adapting them into current 3D games. The results have been mixed, with most titles, like Maximo and Castlevania turning out to be solid, but less than perfect games.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Kunoichi does the job well. It significantly improves on Shinobi's formula with better visuals, level designs, music, and a couple of cool extras. It's also a very fun game to play and poses quite a challenge even to Shinobi vets.
