  1. Even though I was hoping to keep this review short, the game is still cool for school. Shinobi spawned a variety of other Ninja inspired games during the 80’s and hopefully we will see some of these on XBox Live.
  2. A solid little action game that works beautifully with the 400-Point price-tag.

    If you're a Shinobi fan or just someone looking for a cheap title to play, you might take away some fun from the XBLA package of Shinobi, but if you're looking for more substance in your XBLA experience, we don't recommend you go a round with this ninja.
  4. Unless you're an avid Shinobi fan, let this one pass you by. [Oct 2009, p.77]
  5. Entertaining enough, but not the best Sega arcade title on XBLA. [Issue#48, p.99]

    Shinobi isn't worth $5. It's that simple.
