    This game was good it had all the styles of games in it and it has a system of leveling for sowrds and other things and it's just the bomb.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this one. The presentation and graphics are way better than I expected. The gameplay variety keeps things interesting. I also really like the humour - it reminds me of those stick figure martial arts shorts.

    It is not possible to save your game often enough . . . .this would alleviate some real frustration for the novice gamer.

    I-Ninja is one of the coolest platformers I've played in my life. Its got good graphics, a decent soundtrack, a decent plot, and really epic gameplay. The only two problems I had with this game is the crappy ending and voice acting (while its good, they used the same lines all the time), but other than that, its a great hidden gem for the Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, and even PC.
    Highly recommend

  1. Unbridled rage, piss and vinegar, diminutive features, and cool quips ("The steel is cold, yes!") add up to make Ninja a genuinely likable figure starring in a game that's not as good as it should be, nor as bad as one might fear. [Mar 2004, p.86]
  2. I-Ninja just oozes with a perfect blend of charm, humor, and visual quality that has been long overdue in a platform game. A definite must-own title.
  3. After starting out with some interesting gameplay and moves, including a adventurous amount of big Boss battles, I-Ninja falls back on a few too many standards of the genre that go back to the granddaddy of the modern platformer, "Super Mario 64."
