  • Summary: In Ninjamurai, the player assumes the role of Takezou Nishimura (Also
    known as The Ninjamurai), a young warrior who is the offspring of a
    union between a Female Ninja and a male Samurai. Rejected by both
    sides and looked down on as a kind of a mongrel breed, Takezou can be
    impulsive due
    to his age and often has a cocky attitude. He does
    however have a good heart and a desire to help others. He is the most
    skilled warrior in his mountain shrine where he was raised by a man
    named Oro Sensei. After many years of training, Takezou is tasked with
    going into the nearby city and doing some recon. When he gets to the
    city he realizes something is amiss. It is overrun with Black Armor
    Militia and Takezou sets about destroying the Black Armor presence in
    the city. He meets a Black Armor commander named Bedros Majima, who
    informs him that the Black Armor was responsible for the murder of his
    parents.

    This game combines a new IP, nice graphics and cool, but difficult gameplay like „N+" for platform fans – hoping the sequel will have nicer animations and more story details.

    In spite of its occasional frustrations, Ninjamurai is one of the most compelling PSP games released this year. The fact that it's a Minis game, at that price point, just make it all the more enticing.

    The old school platforming and sometimes punishing checkpoint system won't appeal to everyone, but those that grew up on the platformers of the 16-bit era will be right at home, as will anyone looking to spend a little money to see how downloadable games have matured over the years.

    Overall, the game reflects its price instead of being better than it, making it a title that should be picked up by platforming fans and those hungry for a PSP game if they have some spare change lying around.

    There's a slight stickiness to your character's response time that makes all of Ninjamurai's other achievements irrelevant - jumping and slashing just don't feel good. [Sept 2011, p.111]

    Ninjamurai's sense of speed doesn't last long enough to get you through the waiting room at the doctor's office, nor does it compare to other offerings on the PSP Mini lineup.
  7. If I'd bought this for the Atari ST in 1989, I'd want my money back. [Sept 2011, p.107]
