Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge review

Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge is one of many enhanced ports from HD consoles coming over to Nintendo’s dual-screen wonder with some added touch screen controls for the Gamepad and some new additions to the Ninja Gaiden gameplay to tweak what was, to be fair, a pretty average affair when it came out last year. Unfortunately I’m playing this game off the back of the sublime Devil May Cry remake as well which doesn’t help matters, and things are further compounded due to a game breaking bug fairly early on in the game which halted my progress so I’ll give...

Ninja Captains review

I’m not one of those fools who think the Wii is just about party games and waving your body around but I can’t deny that these types of games have been quite successful on the Nintendo Wii. Ninja Captains is a collection of 20 party style games for younger children and families. Let’s see if it can win over a 26 year old grumpy gamer such as myself in my review of Ninja Captains for Wii. If you’ve played Mario Party or Rayman Raving Rabbids you should know how a party game on the Wii plays. Instead of a deep...

Mini Ninjas 1

Mini Ninjas review

Just because a game’s for kids doesn’t mean it has to be hurriedly put together. Luckily, it seems that quite a bit of care and attention has gone into making Mini Ninjas which means kids are going to have a fair amount of fun with it. In the game, the land has been ravaged by violent storms and the leader of the town has sent his best ninjas one by one off to solve the problem. The problem is, they never came back so it’s up to Hiro, the youngest of the ninjas, to find his buddies and stop the...

Ninja Blade review

Tokyo’s already a very strange place but it’s made even stranger in this game when a parasite called the Alpha Worm decides to infest human beings and turn them and other creatures such as spiders and birds into savage mutants. For some reason, ninjas are called upon to save the day and you begin your quest as modern-day ninja Ken Ogawa by diving out of a plane. From there the action doesn’t really let up as you chop up your enemies and do lots of ninja stuff you’d expect. Think of this game as a cross between God of War,...

Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword review

This is Ryu Hayabusa’s first outing on the Nintendo DS and I’ve been itching to play it ever since I saw footage of the interesting control method. You hold the DS like a book and draw on the screen to control the little Ninja. He follows where you drag the stylus and swipes and swooshes at his enemies when you draw through them. If you’ve ever played Zelda: Phantom Hourglass you’ll get into this straight away and this is actually great fun to play. Occasionally you’re left scribbling the screen like a teenager desperately trying to finish an exam before...

Ninja Reflex 1

Ninja Reflex review

Ninja Reflex for Wii is a small budget release by Nunchuck Games and is published by Electronic Arts. It’s labelled as a Ninja Skills trainer/simulator but really is just a collection of minigames. Nunchuck Games proudly display the photos of three martial arts experts on the Ninja Reflex mini-site who claim it is pretty good. We may not know our Xingyi from our Poomsae but we do know our Wii games so let’s see if Ninja Skills Wii gets a lowly white belt or a high ranking black belt in our review of Ninja Reflex. Upon booting the game for...
