Not for the emotionally unstable.

Featherstone, Amazon

  • 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 devastated Tokyo, while posing like a bad-... at that? You've heard the graphics are great, sound is great, story line passes, but then there is the game play.

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. The story is cool with demons taking over Tokyo and you having to face off against your now possessed ninja clan members. The graphics are ok, and the look to the main character is cool.

A Fine, But Flawed, Action Romp

-- "--", Amazon
13 January 2003
  • 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. That is fine, considering that "Shinobi" is best enjoyed as a frantic action game where the backstory is expendable in the face of some intense, and quite enjoyable, gameplay.

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. Unfortunatley, Shinobi's come back hasn't made it all the way back to it's former glory. I'd have to say that when I gave this game 3 stars I was being a bit generous.

Average game -- that still needs some improvement

  • 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. The three-dimensional effect is quite an improvement. Even the graphics are an improvement.

Willkommen auf der PS2!

  • Summary: Als erstes muss man natürlich sagen, das dieses Hammerspiel von den Jungs aus Overworks entwickelt wurde – aber wiese eigentlich „natürlich“? Nun, wenn euch etwas solche Perlen wie „Skies of Arcadia“ oder „Sakura Taisen“ sagen, dann könnt ihr auch bestimmt meine Begeisterung teilen!
  • Pros: Gute Story, einzigartiger Design .
  • Cons: Etwas zu eintöniges Gameplay .
