5.0 out of 5 stars Gameplay the way it should be! 27 May 2003
By John Marshall Furlong - Published on Amazon.com
I miss the old style platformer games. Games like Ninja Gaiden, Shinobi, Bionic Commando, and Ninja Spirit used to occupy a lot of my gaming time. Ninja Five-O contains the best elements of all those old games. The graphics won't knock your socks off, and the story is simplistic, but N5-O will beat you down if you don't stay on your toes. That's right, it's going to take some skill and practice to succeed at this game. However, the elements that compose this platformer are so well integrated, you won't feel frustrated, just an overwhelming desire to get better. This game is a joy to play. It's a shame that Konami is not marketing it better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a book by it's cover 13 May 2003
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
When you first look at Ninja Five-O, you might think it's a silly simple game. However, when you first pop it in and play, you will have a change of heart. Owing a big debt to the Shinobi games of the 16-bit era and the Ninja Gaiden series, you play a ninja cop taking on enemy ninjas and terrorists. Gameplay wise the game is very difficult and challenging, which is perfect for fans of the aforementioned games. The graphics are typical 2-D side scroller fare, but that's not such a bad thing with some nicely animated characters and textures. All in all, Ninja Five-O is a great action game that those who yearn for the days of Shinobi and Ninja Gaiden will love. This is the game that THQ's Revenge of Shinobi for the GBA should have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ninja Five Star 1 July 2008
By The Jolly Roger - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is perhaps one of the most under-rated and overlooked games for the GBA. It is without parallel the swiftest moving action gave worthy of the title "ninja" within its appellation. No need for Pulitzer storyline or garish cut scenes, this game delivers precisely ninja action with addictive simplicity and speed with its hawkish grappling hook, enticing music and razing swordplay.

Hearkening back to the original ninja game, Shinobi, wherein you play a cool footed ninja who rescues baby hostages, Ninja employs the same system of rescue (of adults, this time) within labyrinthine settings. There is thankfully no one way of assault to rescue hostages, insuring welcomed alteration to the intransigence of usual one-way hack n' slash in the same genre.

Notwithstanding the tantalizing fighter's atmosphere skillfully designed by its programmers, the substantial improvement of shurikan powers, movement and sword capabilities, the winning element is by far the sinewy grappling hook. Very similar in role to the bionic arm of NES's Bionic Commando but greatly updated, the grappling hook of this game just feels so much better with physics; your player isn't just meaninglessly swinging back and forth but like a gymnast sets himself up for amazing feats. It is this flow of motion that allows your character to implement either a surprise ambush or frontal assault onto the enemy. If it weren't for the ninja, the grappling hook would be the protagonist of the game, for its use is ubiquitous in the game.

The only drawback is the invariable ninjitsu which replicates the mass onslaught of hundreds of ninjas on the screen from the original Shinobi, except here it is only executed with only the one ninja's alacritous sweep around the screen killing every enemy in sight. While the bosses no doubt are capable of much more diverse and seasonal ninja magic, it would have been better to equip the ninja with a more elemental assortment of fail-safe demolition. Even so, the favoritism of the grappling hook excuses all faults in this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare gem, and a MUST-HAVE GBA game!!! 10 Aug 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Perhaps you haven't heard of this title, and I wouldn't be surprised. After three months of production, Konami ceased further manufacturing of the game...because it is a terrible game....HARDLY!
Ninja Five-0 is a rare treat. Quite possibly the most overlooked title on the system, and certainly one of, if not THE best Action games to hit the GBA. Old-school gamers will love the winning combination of Shinobi, Ninja Gaiden, and Bionic Commando. Theyr'e all here with Ninja Five-O's fresh new graphics and rocking gameplay.
Pick it up....you won't be dissapointed!
