    Even though Mini Ninjas might not be as in-depth or content heavy as its modern peers, it's still a beautiful, fun game that opens up ninja culture to kids.
  2. Whether you're big or small, there's a lot to like about these little ninjas and their lengthy journey.

    Mini Ninjas is a good action game, entertaining, enjoyable and able to offer some hours of good fun, but far from being one of the great games of the genre.

    A visual and aural feast. [Dec 2009, p.98]
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    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.
