  • Summary: The newest addition to the GunCon2 compatible list of shooters. Set to the backdrop of Feudal Japan, three heroic ninjas must fight off hundreds of powerful demons in order to save the Princess Koto from being sacrificed in a ritual to resurrect the evil Shogun Kigai. Featuring new levels, modes, and rendered cut-scenes, plus improved graphics over the Arcade version, this new shooter is ready to put trigger fingers back in action. [Namco] Expand

  1. Terrific enemy placement, tough bosses and pretty good graphics. [Aug 2002, p.71]
  2. 70
    If incredibly sore hands and a serious feeling of relief after busting caps in countless Shogun hoodlums constitutes a solid console light-gun shooter, then Ninja Assault screams for your attention.
  3. An above-average shooting title that feels a lot like Sega's "The House of the Dead" games. [Sept 2002, p.150]
  4. There's little depth here even for a gun game. [Oct 2002, p.40]
  5. Delivers on the throwback headstrong-ninja motif, but its graphics are lacking, the level of challenge isn’t up to snuff, and the whole experience is over way too quickly.
  6. 50
    There isn't enough of the good stuff to keep you interested for long.
  7. 40
    In a world where light-gun games need to change or die, Ninja Assault is an evolutionary dead-end for the genre.
