  • Excerpt: As I sat down to play and review Sega’s latest retro-update, Shinobi , I was interrupted by the noise of my morning post being pushed through the letterbox. Alongside the usual array of ‘You are a winner!’ and ‘Dodgy-Loan Co. Can Save Your Life!’ style circulars, there was a letter addressed to me, that had clearly been opened.

  • Excerpt: Shinobi or followers of the way of Nin are a mysterious bunch. Nin comes from the Japanese language as two words literally meaning "blade" and "heart." That’s rather fitting for Sega’s Shinobi videogames. The hero Musashi was not only a master of the blade, but possessed supernatural abilities. Well, Shinobi is back with a new hero, Hotsuma. Despite the relative closeness of his name to “Hot Sumo”, he’s a pretty small and nimble fellow.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Shinobi is short, it's hard, it's frustrating and it's not that pretty. It also oozes style, is fun to play and features a handful of worthwhile unlockable extras. Personal mileage will vary based upon your level of patience. A definite rental, and a tentative, but positive purchase recommendation.

Shinobi

  • Excerpt: So what do you get when Overworks decides to revive the Shinobi lifeblood on the PS2? A scarf-wearing, sleek-looking, all-around master of ninjas is what. If stealth were an aesthetic, Overworks would have it nailed. Too bad they forgot to make it as fun as it looks.

  • Excerpt: But then there are those who'll love the challenge, revel in the startlingly addictive gameplay, and see past the mundane-looking environments, amazing themselves with the slick, fashionable elegance the game's artwork possesses.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Shinobi is a very good game, and it's what I've been waiting for all this time, but it's nowhere near perfect, or at least from what I've seen from playing it so far. It's worth the money, but try and shop around to buy it cheaply; I got my copy for £25 compared to the £39.99 some shops were charging. However, it may not be for all players, and some people don't really view it as worthy of the Shinobi name. Happily, I'm not one of them.
  • Pros: It's a Ninja game., Very fast and stylish., Replay value to increase your score and collect secrets.
  • Cons: Disparity in difficulties., Length of levels., Feels like it's missing a few things.

  • Summary: This game really is Shinobi for the 128bit console; the gameplay and the fun behind the original is present everywhere, which gives the game added nostalgia. Perhaps a little too tough for the casual gamer, but at least worth a rent.

Shinobi - Test 3DS

Kri­nein
23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Il aura fallu laisser passer un certain paquet d’années avant que Sega ne se décide à miser de nouveau sur sa série Shinobi . Plus de sept ans séparent en effet le très correct Nightshade ( Kunoichi: Shinobi ) de la PS2 et le présent épisode de la 3DS, celui-ci étant du coup très attendu par les fidèles de la franchise.
