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.
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.
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.

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.
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. Then a little whie box with wthite writing on the inside comes up that reads some junk about u need a "memroy card for Ps2 with atleast 370KB of free space to save this game" and i have a memory card for PS2 with 2,040KB of free space and i think...
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?
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.
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.
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.
Summary: HOLA!!!!!!! Hoy a comentar un juego, que ya se le ha pasado un poquito el arroz, pero que aun asi, sigue siendo bastante aceptable, durante el tiempo que ha pasado. Hablo de Shinobi, juego que para la PS2, no se si mucha gente lo conocera, pero si los que jugaron a sus anteriores entregas, tanto para maquinas recreativas, como para la Mega Drive(gran consola, ya vas vieja que el caminar). Hay va la critica.
Pros: Su velocidad de juego no se puede igualar
Cons: La palabra monotonia surgio a raiz de este juego
