  1. Overall, there is a good deal to like about Mini Ninjas.
  2. Official Nintendo Magazine UK

    Looks lovely but is just too frustrating and slow-paced to recommend. [Nov 2009, p.99]

    Although it has a good stab at open-world platforming, this soon turns into a chore. [Nov 2009, p.58]
  4. The result is an uneven hodge-podge where the ninja concept isn't particularly fresh and where the good bits are undermined by the game’s undeniable issues in the areas of feedback, controls and targeting.
  5. Nintendo Power

    It's a cute game, but too many issues make Mini Ninjas less fun than it should be. [Nov 2009, p.81]
  6. Mini Ninjas on DS is an incredible disappointment. There are clearly some great ideas present in the game, and the story set-up is built upon a solid foundation. Once you push the start button on this machine, however, it breaks down and falls in on itself.
