Mini Ninjas

True achievements

  • Conclusion: Other than searching for items and objects that the player might have missed, the game offers very little re-playability with no online feature or variations to the plot. Even though a short game, it is a wonderfull one. The art work of levels are breathtaking, the mountains, water falls, the enemy camps - all beautifully draw. My favourite is the cemetery level with ghosts that sucked your ki powers, the atmosphere was chilling and dark.

Mini Ninjas Review

VideoGamer.com
3 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Ninjas are hard wired into our psyches as visual shorthand for cool. I mean, they hide in the shadows and throw shurikens . Make them mini, though, and wrap them in a Pixar-esque art style, and they become cool AND cute - a dangerous combination. This, effectively, is what IO Interactive, developer of the gritty Hitman games, has done with its latest effort, the 3D adventure Mini Ninjas.

Mini Ninjas (Xbox 360) Review

  • Summary: This is a very good first effort from IO interactive. The story will keep you involved and they added plenty of things to try to extend it. The cuteness and comedy also makes this game rather humorous, which is something I was surprised about. I didn't find anything really wrong with the game, other than a needed co-op and the possible eventual tedium of the button mashing.

Mini Ninjas Review

GameSpot
5 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Mini Ninjas is a decidedly different turn for developer IO Interactive, maker of the Hitman series. This action adventure is low on gruesome assassinations and high on lighthearted fun, but that doesn't mean fans of stealth-kill simulators, or anyone else for that matter, should skip over it. Mini Ninjas is an approachable and enjoyable game with a charming art style that brings its lively world to life.
  • Pros: Great art style creates a vibrant, cohesive world, Level designs encourage exploration, A ton of combat options, Excellent music
  • Cons: Fighting gets a bit tiresome toward the end, Uncooperative camera

  • Conclusion: A perfect game for the kids but with enough fun to keep the adults entertained as well. You will never feel too taxed or too engrossed for that matter but the cute charm of the game shines through and means there is plenty of entertainment to be had.

  • Excerpt: Cute is good. I like cute. Call me what you want, but if a game has a definite cuteness factor to it, I’m there. So I was happy when within about five minutes of loading, Mini Ninjas proved itself to be one of the cutest games of all-time. Historically, the cuteness factor is enough to ensure that a game gets demoted to the “games for kids” level of the game buyers’ awareness, and generally with good reason. Mini Ninjas is a different kettle of fish, however.

  • Excerpt: Mini Ninjas have snuck their way onto all major console. They are cute and deadly, but will that be enough to earn them high ratings?

Mini Ninjas (Xbox360)

9 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The concept of Mini Ninjas must have presented quite a dilemma for its creators. Developed by IO Interactive, a studio known for more violent fare such as Hitman, Freedom Fighters and Kane and Lynch, their latest title featuring a cast of cute, diminutive warriors trained in ancient (and mythical) martial arts may just have kept the team members awake at night thinking about a single question: who or what is the game’s target audience?
