  1. While not exactly a training piece for Ninja Warrior, Ninja Reflex is amusing in the way it tests your hand-eye coordination. The fun is fair and the replay value is iffy.
  2. Ninja Reflex is another game for the party crowd, and if this is the big reason you own a Wii, then I can recommend the title for you. Otherwise you are looking at a rental until it hits the bargain bin.
  3. The multiplayer's fun but the lack of games ruins the solo mode. [May 2008, p.77]

    Ninja Reflex is a decent concept, but it’s just so insultingly small as a packaged Wii game.
  5. There are only six minigames included on the disc. Six. Granted, Wii Sports and Wii Play don't cram 'em in either, and everybody loves those, but $40 for six minigames still feels like a rip.
  6. You know it's a bad sign for a game when you enjoy the name generator and meditation mode more than any of the actual gameplay.

    I fully expected EA to lay it on thick with the clichéd martial arts mumbo jumbo, but aside from oft-repeated comments from the sensei, the ninja theme is thankfully understated, and the clean visuals are more than adequate for the simplistic mechanics.
  8. Full of charm and delightful presentation, Ninja Reflex falls depressingly short by skimping out on more multiplayer options and even the single player leaves you feeling short changed especially when it hovers around the £25 mark.
  9. 50
    Nobody expects a minigame collection to offer hundreds of hours of entertainment, but with only six short-lived games on offer, Ninja Reflex gives gamers the short shrift, even compared with its less-than-stellar brethren.
  10. 50
    Ninja Reflex, whilst being for the most part competently put together, will leave both solo gamers and party players at best cold, and at worst hot under the collar. Pass this title by, silently and unseen in your black pyjamas.
  11. For all of the disgust Ninja Reflex slowly draws up from the pit of your stomach, it should have been branded Gag Reflex instead. [June 2008, p.99]
