  1. Mini Ninjas is just purely, simply a great video game. Period.
  2. 83
    Mini Ninjas is for the little gamers. The game has a lot of great humor and a very interesting visual style. But the missing cooperative option is a great miss.
  3. 80
    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.
  4. As a result of all the hard work, this is a rewarding game to play and one that everyone should experience.
  5. 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.
  6. Mini Ninjas is not an excellent game, but it's a very recommendable title for all ages.
  7. IO Interactive deserves credit for going in such a different direction from their usual shooter fare. Alas, the result is a beautiful game without a soul. Like a piece of gum, everything great about Mini Ninjas can be experienced in the first few minutes. After that, its sweetness is just a quickly fading memory.

    What Mini Ninjas did for me was create a memorable gaming experience that not a lot of games have. I loved the experience start to finish with all its twist and turns. Being able to gain magic powers at your own pace and slicing through evil samurai is extremely enjoyable, especially due to the great story that fuels your reason to, and something that deserves a sequel. But I could see how this game would not appeal to a mass market. Also, hasn't Dishonored stolen some of the stealth mechanics? Turn into animals anyone? Expand

    Un juego muy innovador, no hay ninguno de su categoría en Playstation 3, al menos de este nivel, es entretenido, engancha desde el principio, tiene una trama notable, lógicamente los gráficos y las cámaras cuando luchas dejan mucho que desear, flojea en mas aspectos..pero el caso es que es muy entretenido para niños y jugarlo en familia, lo recomiendo. Saludos y que lo paséis genial con este juego ^^ Expand
