Summary: This isn't a bad game but it's not a great game either. I think they were banking on the fact that anything "Ninja" sells more so they put their work into that more than the actual mechanics of the game. Overall I enjoyed this game for all of a couple of hours. Considering the price I paid for it, well, I can't complain. It was fun alone, better with friends, but like several of my buddies said, "I can play all these games on my phone for free.
Summary: This game rocks & it increased my reflexes tremendously! Instead of watching things fall to the floor, I'm moving quicker than ever and picking them up before hitting the ground. Not just my own accidents either. I've impressed a few friends by impossibly catching things they've knocked over. I caught my girlfriend's new iphone she dropped and right before it hit the bar floor without a protective cover.
Summary: Found this title and was hoping it would be a good martial arts sim for my daughter...NOT REALLY! Will only have repeat play appeal to real hardcore ninja afficiandos. From catching flies with chopsticks, throwing stars at inanimate attackers, to deflecting household objects with your nunchuks (don't even get me started with what you do to the FIREflies), this is all "wax on, wax off" and NO "sweep the leg".
Summary: I enjoy the martial arts, and I thought this game had a decent approach - learn martial arts skills without violence. It's not a very good game though. The game is basically broken up into 6 minigames, with slight restrictions based on what particular form of a game you're playing. For instance, in the first Koi game, you catch as many fish as you can. in the second, you need to catch one particular fish. In the third, you catch fish as they swim across the screen.
Summary: I was very disappointed by how little there is to do in this game. Basically there are 4 different mini-games that you play and each only last a couple of minutes. That is it. I know... I know... you are thinking that there has to be more than that, right? But there isn't.
Summary: This is your only option in the WII platform of a martial arts game without violence. That's why I've to give 4 stars but Nintendo have done better jobs in the past (NES system). What I liked: 1 - You have to make Nunchaku movements to make it works (good use of WII mote) 2- You can learn 3 basic movements of the Katana (good use of WII mote) 3 - Fishing is a peaceful activity and the comment about the educational thing of meditation is true.
Summary: We'll start with what you get. First off, this is not a fighting or action game. There are no missions or storyline, it's essentially like ninja training... wii style. The story, if any is to become a black belt by completing the basic mini games with certain restrictions or goals. This game comes with 6 different mini games. Shuriken throwing - Nice control system, fun overall Katana fighting - Not as cool as it sounds, but decent.
Summary: Leopard-san. The road to becoming a Ninja warrior is a long and arduous one. You need to learn to breathe underwater, jump high in the air, be one with the shadows, spit poison darts as well as master an array of weapons. But in Ninja Reflex, it seems you have entered Ninja 101 for kids.
