  • Summary: He might be small, but he's one angry Ninja. I-Ninja stars a consummate warrior who has spent years mastering his weapons and honing his skills. Challenged by the world's most wicked villain, Master O-Dor, and his menacing army of Ranx, the young ninja must now put his skills to use. With access to multiple weapons, including shurikens, swords, blowguns, and rocket launchers, guide I-Ninja through imaginative missions, mini-quests, and a face off with a menacing 150-foot robot. There is no challenge too big or risk to great for I-Ninja. Expand

  1. A great throwback, mixing several different game elements, to create perhaps one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever played.
  2. I-Ninja just oozes with a perfect blend of charm, humor, and visual quality that has been long overdue in a platform game. A definite must-own title.
  3. It’s jam-packed with clever little touches, and only really disappoints in that it has to end.
  4. 75
    The longevity factor makes it a rental for even vaguely experienced players. On the other hand, as a young player's introduction to gaming, I-Ninja is nearly the perfect tool.
  5. A short but well-crafted third-person action game with a surprising variety of gameplay.
  6. 70
    The controls hold up better than in most platformers, the levels are well-designed, and your character has a good repertoire of attacks. There's a lot of variety, too.
  7. This game has a huge lifespan, as I eventually found it such a pain to play I couldn’t play for more than 15 minutes max a day.

    This game has some very basic fighting, but still very fun. The game has a variety of many differet types of levels. You'll find yourself trying at one level over and over again and be so frustrated. This game was very fun while it lasted. Short, sweet, and full of levels that will drive you insane. Expand

    It's got a major flaw that is just absolutely annoying, they make you got back to the same levels that you already beat. They make you do this to make the game seem longer then it actually is. That wouldn't matter so much if the levels were actually fun. It starts off kind of sweet but then it just gets worse as it goes along. Expand
