    This is the most repetitive peace of sh*t game ever. The level design is as bad as the story (actually no level can be that bad). One could fall asleep playing this game its so boring and stupid.

    Great gameplay my ass. i didnt know going through identical rooms 50 times and fighting the same bad guys 50 times is great gameplay. People like bruce c. telling people they dont have a life is sad. cuz its people like bruce.c who play this game that dont have a life. Stick to the original shinobi games.

    Seriously people, who would pay $49.99 to play as some gay ninja who wears skin-tight clothing and a mile long scarf that he probably stole from Santa Clause? Kyle B, even though your taste in games is clearly shitty for giving this "game" a 10, you aer smart for at least writing SOMETHING on this game. I suggest that you (Kyle) just read and not play video games, you're clearly waySeriously people, who would pay $49.99 to play as some gay ninja who wears skin-tight clothing and a mile long scarf that he probably stole from Santa Clause? Kyle B, even though your taste in games is clearly shitty for giving this "game" a 10, you aer smart for at least writing SOMETHING on this game. I suggest that you (Kyle) just read and not play video games, you're clearly way too sophisticated for us gamers. Unlike Tarik T and Vern V (if those r ur real names) who mispell everything and write shitty one-liner reviews like sentence one of both their reviews. And how dare Tarik T compare Devil May Cry to this worthless piece of repetitivness. On top of you two both having shitty ass taste, you both can't write a goddamn review. I wouldn't spend shit on a game because two idiots said it was the shit. Why don't you two go back to playing Antz Extreme Racing and let the big boys play the real stuff. Expand

  1. There's very little need for strategy and the gameplay may grow weary to some, but it does manage to have tons of style, challenge and action to spare.
  2. Those looking for a game with lots of challenge and a distinct sense of style would do well to check out Shinobi.

    A decent tribute to its source material, but fails to capture its best qualities.
