    It's a shame that Ronin takes a bit of time to hit its stride because it runs the risk of scaring off impatient players. However, anyone who sticks with it for a level or two will undoubtedly find plenty of enjoyment. So long as they never put more than one finger on the screen, anyway.

    Captivating art and fun gameplay come together in this runner. With a few tweaks to the controls, this will be an extremely solid title.

    It's hard to get endless games right, but Ronin makes things even harder for itself with inconsistent enemies that break the flow of its otherwise smooth controls.

    I imagine Rōnin will probably only pique the interests of either dedicated endless runner gamers or fans of its Asian-influence art style. Otherwise, there isn't much here to explore.
