5.0 out of 5 stars superb 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was rather curious to see a Shinobi game on the 3DS shelves with very little fanfare - I would have thought an entry in the Shinobi series would have made a splash on the 3DS forums. The price also seemed suspect. 9 quid? Shouldn't quality games retail in the region of 30 quid? My vapourware alarms started ringing a bit. But I decided to try it anyway. I mean, how bad can a Shinobi game be?

Turns out, this is a high quality, extremely immersive and well designed gaming experience of the highest order. The keywords here are action, skill and intensity. The story is solid, at least at providing a backdrop for why you are running around in feudal Japan one moment, and fighting laser gun blasters in space the next. And what is cooler than ninjas?

And its hard. Old school hard. I have only played the campaign on the Easy setting (I tried Normal at first, but after a few tries realized that I am going to cry like a little baby on the train if I continue in this folly). Every move must be done with precision and good timing.

Once you get over the learning curve, few things provide the satisfaction of a well-timed series of jumps, slashes, kanai's and a little magic here and there (beware - you lose points for using magic).

Truly, a masterpiece of a game, and an excellent investment of time (for almost no money at all!). Perfect for commuting play (at least on the Easy setting), as the save-points are frequent. The game is of a decent length, especially if, like me, it takes many tries and strategies to clear a level. There are plenty of secret locations to look for, and lots of power-ups and special effects that provide variation on the gameplay. And the boss fights are epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Re-Boot of a classic 11 Jan 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game surprised me when i got it, as a fan of the original Shinobi on the Sega Mega Drive i had to get this and i have to say it is excellent. Gamers who are too young to remember the Sega/NES years might not get this game straight away, but old skool gamers will love it, it deliberately uses the old skool pattern based recognition gameplay style, that on the MegaDrive/NES was because of the limitations of the hardwear, but here it is a clear design choice, what i mean by this is that unlike most modern games where a player can wing it through the game, here you have to start over at the beginning of the level,(and the levels are huge) and memorise where enenmies and traps are to progress, So you have to play like a Ninja to progress!Fans of the original Shinobi will be pleased to see the classic spin and throw and double jumps from the mega drive version updated here, and really, it is the up to date Shinobi reboot classically honoring the original while updating the game play to todays' standards. The music and sound is great and it has fantastic Anime cut scenes and is really a great game, but be warned it is hard, hard in the old skool video game way, which i found refreshing, cos usually after a few hours i have progressed quite far in a game, but here i had to approach it like the old NES/Megadrive/Arcade games before i made progress and in a age of games where one can wing it through a game, i found this very very refreshing, Young kids might find this frustrating and hard but seasoned gamers should enjoy the challenge!

5.0 out of 5 stars PREPARE FOR GLORY! 2 Dec 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A new Shinobi - dear god noooooo whisper my inner, magical, ninja, senses - YEEEAAAARGH!! Says my inner Megadrive pad wielding teenage self! So what's it gonna be Sega? Are you going to destroy one of the most majestic game franchises ever devised? Or are you gonna pull down that ninja hood and fling some firey shurikens at our eager, moist, young eye-peas? Wanna know how it turned out? Then read the following list and understand...

THE GOODNESS:
- First off the controls are as tight as a ducks butt underwater - controlling your Ninja is a simple matter of defining the controls, if needs be, then slipping around with the utmost of skill and ease, sword slashing, throwing star flinging and being an all around hard-ass.
- The graphics are fluid and in a rather cool style that may not sit well with fans of the old-school look but it'll grow on you and pretty soon you'll be digging it like a silky smooth mole.
- The 3D is okay - I mean I don't expect every game to push the gimmick but it works well enough here.
- The horse riding levels are back: ninja + shimmering sword + horseback = bad guys getting slashed to ribbons = splendiferous.
- The soundtrack is like a religious experience for your ear pipes. I mean some of these tracks will unscrew your dome and break-dance on your brain.
- The cut scenes are quite groovy.
- There's a pile of art and tunes and whatnot to unlock which we all know goes to making a lovely rounded experience.

THE BADNESS:
- It's not the longest game in history, but also on the plus side it doesn't outstay its welcome and there enough to keep the hardcore coming back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price 21 Oct 2013
By DaveK
Verified Purchase
If you played the older games in the series on the megadrive this will feel quite familiar, although there's greater emphasis on sword combos over shuriken throwing in this.

The gameplay is very hard and involves a lot of skill; there is a steep learning curve. Some parts, especially the platforming sections are extremely unforgiving and frustrating. It is satisfying to feel you are getting better at it, because there really is a genuine level of skill needed to play. For me, I don't have that much time to spend playing video games and I have found I have put this down in favour of less frustrating, more modern games.

However it cost me £5 and it is definitely worth that. It's pretty well polished with unlockable achievements, saving replays and so on.
