  • Summary: Ninja Reflex uses a series of martial arts challenges to test gamers' reflexes and measure their reaction times with millisecond precision. As players develop their ninja skills, they will strive to earn a black belt from their own personal Sensei. Players can also compete for ninja supremacy against their friends in fierce multiplayer battles with up to four players. [Electronic Arts] Collapse

  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.
  3. Ninja Reflex is undeniably attractive and polished, but unfortunately it gives up its secrets far too quickly to be considered good value for money.
  4. 58
    I fully expected EA to lay it on thick with the clich├ęd 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. Ninja Reflex only feels like a third of what could have been a fun package. Even the kids will feel short-changed by the overall package, which despite some positives never warrants affiliation with the ninja.
  7. 30
    Whilst the idea is good and the execution is fine there is literally nothing resembling a game to be had here.
