Summary: STORY You play as Hotsuma, leader of the Oboro ninja clan and wielder of famed sword, Akujiki. The ancient seal of the demonic Hell Spawn has been broken, bringing terror upon Tokyo, and allowing the evil sorcerer Hiruko to rise once again.
Summary: Like my review header say's this game I enjoy for a quick action packed game of hack 'n' slash. Anyone who has been on the other Shinobi games "The Revenge Of Shinobi" & Shinobi 3: Return Of The Ninja Master both in the Mega Drive era.
Summary: The Shinobi series has been in existence since Sega's Master System debut in the 80's. This PS2 update includes everything that made Shinobi memorable for long-time Sega fans, only this time with 3D graphics and gameplay.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the old shinobi games. This lastest one sort of dissapoints me. The new Shinobi is meant to be a very straight forward action hack'kill'kill'jump style game, but missing to me is the fun I used to get when I played the old shinibo games.
Summary: I remember playing the very first shinobi in arcades way back in the 80's. Seeing Shinobi return with modern-day gaming technology was a big surprise. This game is your typical run of the mill action hack 'n slash game. Its not really boring...its alot of fun actually.
Summary: This is a great PS2 arcade game. The graphics are nothing special, it looks like a cleaned up psone game or dreamcast game, but it looks better than alot of PS2 games like Ico for example because the graphics are clear and not fuzzy. It is a typical Sega game.

Summary: Shinobi means "female ninja", but in this latest version on the PS2 you're Hotsuma, leader of the turned-to-zombies Oboro clan. The cut-scenes are lovely and tie together what is in essence a traditional hack-and-slash game. You drop into a level.
Summary: Ok, I havent really played the game yet cause i cant get it to work. When I put the game in the system it goes through the blue and black screen then it shows PlyStation2 in white on the black screen and then that dissapears.
Summary: I like most of this game esp. with the graphics(shinobi's flowing scarf)and the gameplay(all of the quick/flash moves).I also had alot of fun throwing knives/stars at enemies and seeing the random cut scene when you slice up four or more bad guys!
Summary: Shinobi is one of Sega's classic franchises, but the new game is nothing like the side-scrolling Rolling Thunderesque game you might remember from arcades of the '80's. The new Shinobi features a new main character, completely new play mechanics, and basically takes everything other than the essence...
