Quoted from Shinobi Reviews:Check out these quotes from Shinobi reviews & previews
"Shinobi is not a game for everyone, and it's definitely too much of a burden for Nintendo's regular audience. However, 3DS games requiring complete mastery of button skills and timing are few and far between, and will probably remain that way throughout the handheld's lifetime. This puts games like Shinobi in the small but respected pool which caters to the diehard fans and hardcore gamers."
"Shinobi is by no means a showcase of Nintendo 3DS’ abilities despite making use of nearly all of them, but with a compelling old-school gameplay structure, a rewarding sense of achievement and a difficulty level bordering on the psychopathic, it is a viable option for those wanting a challenging pick-up-and-play title."
"Shinobi is a great game with tons to do. Some of the old-school elements are sure to turn many players off, but if you can surmount the steep difficulty curve, there is a substantial amount of satisfying gameplay to be found. Those who want a cohesive narrative or who can't afford to endure a few hours of frustration should look elsewhere, but those who can make it past the hump can wring out a lot of fun."
"To call this a bad game would be grossly unfair, but it's a truly unexceptional one. For a series like Shinobi, that is dishonour enough."
"Ultimately, Shinobi is a decent game. It relies a little too much on the more ’cheap’ and gimmicky form of challenge in many places, but it’s fairly faithful to the series’ history and fun enough to play. It’s going to appeal to a very specific crowd, and wasn’t quite to my tastes, but it isn’t a bad game by any means. Fans of the series should be pleased enough, and those interested in classic-style, notably difficult 2D platformers may want to check it out as well."
