  1. A visual and aural feast. [Dec 2009, p.98]
  2. Developers of family games often do hackwork and resort to oversimplification. IO Interactive didn’t succumb to temptation and made a game that stands head and shoulders above its rivals.
  3. That said, I’m sure that a lot of “serious” gamers scoffed at the score, so if you’re a member of the group, you can take down some 10 points to get an “objective” mark and sleep soundly tonight. For everyone else, I strongly recommend that you at least try the demo, because it would be a shame to miss out on one of the most fun and relaxing games of the year.
  4. Six little ninjas have to save animals and fight an evil samurai warlord. Each of the ninjas has its own special ability, like stopping time, playing a flute to slow down enemies or use a hammer to smash opponents. It's a simple game but it's a lot of fun.
  5. It's just a good game. [Nov 2009, p.98]
  6. The cutscenes are lovely, the dialogue and voice over work stereotypical but fitting, and the soundtrack is a wistful traditional Japanese score that rekindles memories of The Karate Kid. Still, Mini Ninjas will do nothing to quell the growing call from core gamers for IO's "next-gen" Hitman game.
  7. This is a simple game for simpler minds. [Dec 2009, p.76]

    an outstanding game. the story is of several ninjas, lost and coming together to fight for their clan against the samurai clan. great graphicsan outstanding game. the story is of several ninjas, lost and coming together to fight for their clan against the samurai clan. great graphics with the cel shading and the gameplay is like playing super mario ninja. not a lot of games like this on the pc, so its definitely one of the best platformers. i played with a 360 controller so i suggest its best to play it with that. it has some great boss battles as well, which is always entertaining in ANY game. great level designs and lots of variety of characters to play.

    Stunning game, 10/10 must play. Despite the coop, you can't bash this game for that.

    This is one FUN game. It looks beautiful and plays well. Lots of hidden stuff to find and secret places to explore. Lots of extra little This is one FUN game. It looks beautiful and plays well. Lots of hidden stuff to find and secret places to explore. Lots of extra little touches like the hornet nest that fell from a tree when I tried to harvest fruit - I got pursued by a horde of bees. Stylistcally beautiful too, reminiscent of Okami, but with better gameplay. Nothing new, but everything's just so well done and so much fun... Well done!!!!! Expand

    A fun game, cartoon graphics are well done, innocent story... only bad thing is that its to easy and the combat is a bit odd sometimes. If uA fun game, cartoon graphics are well done, innocent story... only bad thing is that its to easy and the combat is a bit odd sometimes. If u just mash attack button alot of the time youll fly forward with a slash which is just part of the attack sequence but if unintentional to go forward youll find yourself flying off a cliff (which doesnt hurt, unless you fall down a hole). Also it would be nice if the music played throughout the game. All in all a fun game and easily easily worth the $15 it costs off Steam. I had a good time :) Expand
