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)

HonestGamers
8 July 2004
  • 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.

WorthPlaying
29 March 2004
  • Excerpt: Genre : Action Publisher: Sega Developer: Overworks Release Date: February 10, 2004 Buy 'NIGHTSHADE': PlayStation 2 You don’t play Nightshade . You volunteer. The PS2 Shinobi was the kind of game that feels vaguely like an initiation ritual, for some dark and secret gamer cult.

  • 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).

Expert Review

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.

Nightshade Review

  • Conclusion: Herein lies the rub. The fact of the matter is that while many games commit the sin of being repetitive and having badly flawed gameplay, those which manage to be great despite this do so by constantly presenting the player with rewards for persevering.
