    We don't doubt that Ninja Reflex will improve your reflexes and bring you some small level of coordination. On the other hand, you could probably achieve the same effect with a fighting game or shooter, and have twice the fun.
  2. The games are neither entertaining nor plentiful enough to keep you playing for long. That applies to the multiplayer as well as solo mode.
  3. What makes the ending for Ninja Reflex the worst of all time is that it's intentional. It would have been better if the Wii had glitched, or if the memory card had burned, or if I was sucked into an inter-dimensional space where memories die.

    If you absolutely need to have every single collection of mini-games for your Wii, at least the content in Ninja Reflex is entertaining. There just needs to be a lot more of it to justify the price.
  5. It's really hard to understand how anyone thought such a meagre selection of mini-games and a lacking single-player component warranted such a high price tag.
  6. Unfortunately Ninja Reflex consists of only six minigames. Although the minigames have a unique concept, it becomes quite frustrating to play the same minigames over and over again. The lack of variation will make sure everyone will put this game in the closet after an hour of playing.

    It may amuse the really small ones, but unless you've got the memory of the goldfish you're going to spend your time catching, this one's probably worth avoiding.
  8. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    Playing the same six mini-games 11 times isn't even remotely enjoyable, especially when you're paying 5 quid per mini-game. [May 2008, p.92]
  9. Nintendo Gamer
    Not big, not clever, not even funny. [May 2008, p.63]
  10. Even at the budget price Ninja Reflex is an avoidable title.
  11. Oh, it’s fish catching again. Fly grabbing. The same damn training I’ve done countless times now. It’s the same six mini-games ad infinitum.
  12. Ninja Reflex is a cool idea that's nicely presented, but it's just WAY too wafer thin play-wise to justify its price tag.
  13. While utilizing some nice controls, minus the awful motion-swinging sword game, there's little to no replay value. Top that off with barely amazing graphics for the little in the game as it is, and you're left with a big pile of D rating.
