Summary: Whatever happened to the Shinobi plotlines in the old Genesis games such as Shadow Dancer, Legend of Shinobi and Shinobi III? What happened to Joe Mushasi and his faithful dog sidekick? What about the evil Union Lizard Corp? None of that is in this. It's just generic hokum and the Ninja dude is the only one to save the day. The graphics are very cool and the soundtrack amiable enough but the gameplay is so boring and gets very old and tired even by the second stage.
Summary: I have heard that people really liked the game play of Shinobi, but I felt it was really lacking in some areas. Althought the fights were very interesting and actually fun to go through, it ended up being the same thing over and over again. Also, the story progressed nicely, but it you really had no hand in how the story progressed.
Summary: What has brought the once mighty Sega so low, that they would release this piece of.... gear, and try to pass it off as a game? Shinobi, perhaps the coolest ninja series ever, is forever annihilated by this poor excuse for a... whatever it is. Hotsuma's design is actually fairly decent as far as movement and effects. That's where the buck stops though. The levels were drawn by a near-sighted fourth grader who was able to eek out some rectangles.
