I am sure its tough in this era to make a fighting adventure games that parents dont have to preview while still having the older "kids" still enjoy it. I think this title did it nicely. Its a cutesy fighting game filled with beautiful environments, funny characters and somewhat challenging adventures. Its an entertaining game, I am just not sure who the audience was supposed to be as it had appeals to all but no real hold on any. With such a big landscape throughout the game I would have liked to have seen more to do, but what was there was fun enough to keep my head in it from start to finish. The best synopsis is that it was entertaining, it was cute and funny, very nice to look at, but not very challenging whatsoever, but that doesn't mean it wasn't time well spent. Rent for a rainy day, buy if you've got little ones who are bridging into the bigger games.
It could have had a little more action.I understand its a 10+ usrb rating but I thought it was just broing.When i was Hiro i couldnt understand what anyone was saying.Also if they make it for 10+ they should explain the game a little better.Im just saying it could be better ,and i could use a little more action
Mini Ninjas did meet my expectations of what I thought the game was going to be, and that was, a great game to rent. It is just a nice simple game to play, I would not think hardcore gamers should look into this unless you do like to play a simple game every once and in a while. The graphics are what they are, this is a kids game after all, and it is aimed towards them. I do have to say though they could have done a little better on making the characters cooler. The environment is great and well design. This does give you the feel of old china or japan wherever you may be. The controls are nice and simple. No out of place buttons, but it does get a little repetitive pressing the X button, and adding a Y every once in a while to stun the enemy and make them stop blocking. Would be nice to have different types of combos, but once again this is a game aimed towards children. The gameplay is nice, you do get to sneak around, but it is not like Tenchu. It is more like hiding in tall grass, making bushes appear and using them as cover. You do get cool ninja items such as the basic stuff; smoke bombs, throwing stars, etc. Then you get the ninjutsu art; from making tornado, lighting clouds to strike the enemy, to even overshadowing a bear and using the bear claws to kill the enemy. There are multiply characters to use but you will find yourself using the main character more. The story is aim towards children so everyonce in a while something will happen to the enemies that will kids laugh. Even during a battle against a boss I would slice at him then pull his pants down just so I could hit him; and don’t worry you don’t see anything but his underwear. Sadly no online or multiplayer so it is something that will be played by once self or taking turns per stage. I will once again clarify, that this is a game is aimed at CHILDREN, and not to be taking as some sort of next gen hardcore ninja game. I would recommenced this game as a rent for you casual players or if youhavekids
