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!

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...

- 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.

- 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.

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.

I played Shinobi on the PS2 which was like a poor mans Devil May Cry (PS2). I am very pleased that this 3DS version of Shinobi goes back to the roots of old 16bit classics. The combat is very intense and fluid. When you have mastered the fairly complex controls, you start to feel like a real ninja intent on kicking serious butt. The graphics have a wonderful artistic style and the music score is brilliant and both suit the game perfectly. The story is interesting and has some pretty good voice acting as well. Shinobi is a very hard platform beat 'em up which old school gamers like myself love, but other gamers may find it to hard, especially on the harder settings. There are four different types of ninja magic which you can use and they are as follows:

1. Fire - Throw two kunai at the same time that can pierce through armour and shields, or hit multiple enemies with one shot.
2. Earth - Become faster, stronger and invincible for a short period of time. When the effect wears out, you will be left with only one health unit and no kunai.
3. Lighting - Give invincibility for a limited number of impacts.
4. Water - Boots jump height and speed in general for a limited time. It will also allow you to reload kunai faster.

You also have a grabbing chain which allows you to grab onto ceilings etc. The levels are very diverse and varied for this type of game. There is a stage where you are riding a horse dodging trees and killing ememies which are after you on their horses. Another cool stage is when are on top a car roof, which is going like a bat out of hell down the motorway. You jump from car to car whilst kicking butt ninja style. Shinobi on the 3DS is a real hidden gem which should not be missed if you enjoy a challenge.
