Summary: Well, at first I would have given this game a 4 instead of my final rating but I find that the game is both unique and challenging which is always what made Shinobi so fun and addicting. This game also requires ALOT of time to master.
Summary: This game is great! Imagine the Tenchu series on steroids and you have this! Sega are once again treating us to an awesome MegaDrive update which definately doesn't dissapoint. Thankfully Sega's in house developers Overworks have kept the classic ninja magic intact.
Summary: Anyone old enough to have owned a Genesis will remember the all time classic 2-D side scroller Revenge of Shinobi (no, I don't mean the one on the Game Boy Advance either), a game that offered loads of fun with it's simple gameplay mechanics and ultra hard difficulty.
Summary: I've never played any of the Shinobi games except for this one so I consider myself a non fan. But I am a fan of Samurai/Ninja games (Tenchu, Way of the Samurai, Kengo, Bushido Blade). The only thing Shinobi has in common with prior games of the genre is that you fight with a sword. That's it.
Camera Is horrible, Game is incredible, it's a real shame.

Summary: Basically the minute I played this the first thing out of my lips is WOW..this game, oozes style, charisma, charactor, personality and all around bad-assness..no one can touch Hotsuma, nobody.
Summary: This game, Shinobi is one of this year's best. If you're tired of pre-rendered backgrounds, or useless item fetching, or protect the base missions, then Shinobi is right for you. Forget all the other stuff that makes other games boring. Shinobi concentrates on fast, furious Ninja slice-em-up action.

Summary: Shinobi's Back!! You all saw the commercial; now reap the benefits that it's finally out. One of Sega's oldest and under-appreciated franchises returns on the PS2 in 3D. Those familiar with Shinobi will be surprised to find out that this Shinobi is not the Joe Musashi of the past, but a new ninja...
Summary: See, I just dont see the point in writing reviews of products before they come out. Can someone explain that to me? How to you know that this is gonna "rock" or "rule" or anything of the sort? Well, I know...I own it and have played it extensivley since it was released on the 13th of november.
Summary: Wow. That's my first impression of this game. I've only had it for a few hours, but wow. This game is everything I thought it would be and more. It's not complicated, it's not confusing; it's direct, poignant, and very nicely done.
