Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja Review

23 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Leaping from rooftop to rooftop, dropping onto unwitting enemies' shoulders for an instant kill, stealing valuable documents and then escaping the enemy fortress before anyone has even noticed you were there, this is what being a ninja is all about. It may only be a handheld game, derived from last year's minor PS2 release of the same name, but when Shinobido gives you the chance to pull off great moments like the one above, it's hard not to be awed by how satisfying a...

Expert Review

25 January 2007
  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Technical issues do mar the experience somewhat, and controls can be a bit on the flighty side, which serves to dampen the overall experience somewhat. Nevertheless, Shinobido is a good effort and is a fine addition to the burgeoning Really Rather Good Games List for the PSP.

Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja (PSP)

6 July 2007
  • Conclusion: Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja is a game about ninjas, but is as clumsy as a three-legged donkey who’s had his water spiked. The levels are small and carelessly thought out, the camera offers a tougher challenge than the AI and the missions hardly vary. This is a game that ought to commit seppuku and die honourably.
  • Pros: The pipe music sounds all orient-y, While you’re stuck in the walls you don’t have to look at the ugly characters, UMD’s small size makes it perfect as a home-made
  • Cons: The camera is more painful than an acid enema, Plain levels, Plain graphics, More plain than, bread, I won’t get the hours I spent reviewing this back…

Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja review

3 April 2007
  • Excerpt: It seems that the sole goal of the game is to overcome its deficiencies because as soon as you do the game's like taking candy from a baby. May appeal to hardcore Ninja fans.
  • Pros: Stealth kills rock. Environment allows you to fulfill your role as master of stealth. Not every game where you can fight bears with your ninja skills.
  • Cons: Unpredictable camera. Tricky controls. Poor AI. Dated visuals.

Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja

26 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja op de PSP hoef je dus niet echt te kopen. Wil je het spel toch proberen, dan zou ik je eerder de game op de PS2 aanbevelen, maar ook daar was het al niet beter dan de middelmaat. Deze game voorbijsluipen dus, uitgenomen voor wie ’s nachts slaapt in een zwarte pyjama, met een rood lint om het hoofd en met samoeraisaus op het nachttafeltje.

Review-PSP: Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja

7 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Ordet "Ninja" har for de fleste fået en lidt anden betydning, da Dolph ofte brugte dette sammen med ord som; kølle, B.S. Christiansen og Chuck Norris. Der er dog ikke meget ”død med kølle” over Shinobido: Tales of the Ninja. Det bringer spilleren tilbage til den ældgamle definition af det at være Ninja, nemlig med samuraisværd og lydløse mord. For nogle måneder siden anmeldte vi PS2-versionen af Shinobido-eventyret .
  • Pros: Bedre lydeffekter og muligheden for at styre kameraet.
  • Cons: At snige os ind på fjenden og lave et brutalt mord bagfra med det imponerende samuraisværd.
