Summary: From a long time Shinobi fan, I am very dissapointed in this game. Its a pure action game with some cut scenes to highlight the hacking and slashing you will do throughout. Combos are intresting way to rack up points and power up your sword, but when you fight so many enemies at once and they block all frontal attacks, its gets very annoying.
Summary: This game is way to hard and repetitive. Your sword eats away at your health if you don't feed it. The graphics aren't that good. The levels look alike. Hard to master the controls. The story is stupid.
Summary: If you want to play the ultimate Shinobi game, go to the used game store near your house and pick up Revenge of Shinobi for the defunct Sega Genesis. Believe it or not, this game has more depth and... dare I say it... better graphics and sound (!...) than the new PS2 version. I never got past the second level of this game, not because it was too hard, but because the game is insanely boring.
Summary: After seeing this game on TV commercials & on GTV (Games TV on Digital Cable CH.136) I decided to BUY this instead of renting first which you should not do. Anyway, The graphics are looking 32 bit (Genesis) and the gameplay is just like a typical sega genesis game! I agree with the guy below, Falling in a pit is gaurenteed more than your satisfaction with this game. You can tell this was a rushed project!
