Good game for fans of the genre and well worth a bash

  • Excerpt: Shinobi is a highly detailed fighter on the PS2, fans of the original willprobably enjoy the ride as it really is a good nostalgia trip for all. It's a challenging game yet it's also fairly straightforward which is a nice little not to the simplicity of the original Shinobi back in the day.

Another Typical Shinobi.

  • Summary: This is the first of the series that I have ever played, it was okay for some parts, but it is all typical Shinobi interpretations. Like the fast movement, which would leave a smoke trail of yourself and running along walls.

  • Summary: Shinobi is a fast-paced, action packed, hack'n'slash dash game, that takes constant concentration or else you'll pay the price. Don't get me wrong, I love Ninja games like the Tenchu series, and who doesn't like a super-cool ninja going around to slash his zombie clansmen around a basically...

Extremely fun, but incredibly difficult

  • Summary: I checked out this game not only to see what has been done to it since the side scrolling series, but because someone said it was a very difficult game and wanted to be challenged. They were right about that! I almost gave up on beating this game, and I've finised a lot of other games.

A Fine, But Flawed, Action Romp

  • Summary: "Shinobi" casts you as a rogue ninja out for vengeance against the sorcerer who slaughtered your clan in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. The story unfolds throughout the game in beautifully rendered cut-scenes, but it never amounts to much in the end.

Shinobi's BACK?!?!? Well almost......

Robb Boutros, Amazon

  • Summary: Shinobi was one of those games that just about everyone poured countless quarters into during the late 80's and early 90's. So one would think that it would be a natural to resurrect for the Playstation 2, right? Well not quite. Sega has offered up a new Shinobi for the 21st century.

Average game -- that still needs some improvement

Tex "dionysus_olympus", Amazon

  • Summary: First off, I played the original Shinobi back in the 1980s in the arcade, and it was one of my favorite games. In fact, this game was one of the few games that I beat on one quarter, due to the arcade's glitches. However, this game is fun, but not quite as fun as Devil May Cry.

  • Summary: Beim Vernehmen des Namens „Shinobi“ bekommen alte Action-Haudegen – man erinnere sich (wenn auch nicht unbedingt jeder von uns) der Knallergames Ende der 80er und Anfang der 90er zu Zeiten des Sega Mega Drives und Master Systems – glänzende Augen.
