  1. It gets annoyingly repetitive towards the latter stages. [Issue#22, p.87]
  2. The mini-games aren't addictive enough. It's more of a daily exercise for those with enough willpower to follow through.

    Ninja Reflex is a good idea, it’s fun, but there’s less depth here than in games like Mario Party DS. The line needs to be drawn somewhere, and hopefully consumers will do just that with Ninja Reflex.

    I fully expected EA to lay it on thick with the clichéd martial arts mumbo jumbo, but aside from oft-repeated comments from the sensei, the ninja theme is thankfully understated, and the clean visuals are more than adequate for the simplistic mechanics.
  5. It's a genuine shame. The game is well-presented and polished, the control system works nicely, and the progression lays the groundwork for a really enjoyable experience - but the team decided to come over all Zen minimalism when it came to the games themselves.
  6. Unfortunately Ninja Reflex consists of only six minigames. Although the minigames have a unique concept, it becomes quite frustrating to play the same minigames over and over again. The lack of variation will make sure everyone will put this game in the closet after an hour of playing.

    Whilst the idea is good and the execution is fine there is literally nothing resembling a game to be had here.
