Sega's long awaited sequel to the Shinobi series

Ted Del Prato "technodemon", Amazon
1 May 2004
  • 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. Although slightly hampered by repetitive backrounds, the visuals are crisp and colorful, and the techno-esqe soundtrack provides a nice mood to the modern day Japan setting.

From an old school gamer

slangot, Amazon
9 July 2003
  • 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. Like alot of reviews have mentioned, this is a really difficult game! Some of my problems with the game are: -The levels just weren't designed very well.

Fun but difficult action game

Michael Pappalardo, Amazon
21 June 2003
  • 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. Most hack 'n slash games get boring rather quickly but Shinobi manages to maintain exciting gameplay throughout most of the game. The soundtrack is sort of Japanese-techno with a quick beat.

Hack-Slash with Gorgeous Graphics

Lisa Shea "be the change you wish to see in t..., Amazon
8 February 2003
  • 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. Various bad guys and girls with swords and slicy weapons come after you. Slash - slash - slash and you get to the boss. Level over. Being a big fan of feudal Japan and the samurai.

I'm getting REAL sick of falling down pits!!

4MaskCurse "Kyonshi Jiang Shi", Amazon
12 December 2002
  • 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! Only thing I got sick of was falling down so many pits and getting the GAME OVER CONTINUE? screen!Shinobi can cling to walls,so why can't he save his butt and land on the ground?

Hack & Slash action

Seppo Helava, Amazon
9 December 2002
  • 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 of the original game, and strips it away. What's left is a game of pure ninja action. This isn't Tenchu, it's not Metal Gear Solid, it's not Splinter Cell, or Thief.

Shinobi- Rather Flashy ninja action

Musubi, Amazon
23 November 2002
  • Summary: I just started the game, and am so far impressed with it. The Stylized Ninja accents in the game Hotsuma (main character) are perfect all used by ninja's, the running along the wall with use of his guantlets, he has a hyper dash that makes him invisible for a short time, giving you plenty of time to dash around and attack from behind, also another cool note is that when you dash from where you originally are it leaves a blue hologram that confuses the enemy.

A different take on the ninja game.

Musubi, Amazon
21 November 2002
  • Summary: This game surprised me. I wasn't sure what to expect, given that I haven't played any of the previous Shinobi games (although I do remember the first one, from the arcade, from way back when). I was pleasantly surprised to find out that not only was it different than the usual ninja games I am used to (two great ones for PSX--Tenchu and Tenchu II), but that I liked it, a lot. The game has a decidely "arcade" feel to it, from the graphics to the sound.
