I recently bought this game and I will tell you it is a throwback to the days of no checkpoints no extra lives days of gaming. If your into Ninja games this is a must for your collection. This game needs to be updated for the ps3 and put on the PSN !
The controls are quick and responsive. The game has some cool cut scenes. When I say "cut scenes" I mean that every cool kill has a scene shown for it. Plot reminds....no l mean was stolen from a Anime movie called demon city shinjuku. The only thing they did different was replace the demons with ninjas.
I'm still not clear on why the hero has four eyes on his mask,but hey it really doesn't matter. Point is if you like ninjas and still rock the ps2 you cannot pass up this great title. Plus it's dirt cheap to boot. buy you will thank me later.

Old School Style!!!
This is a reboot of the Shinobi series. You do not play as Joe Hayabusa like in the original series, instead you play a brand new character, whose name I cannot seem to remember. Anyway the story is that demons have invaded the world and you must defeat them, while using a blade that eats your soul if you stop fighting. Also, some of your allies have been brainwashed by the demons so, you must defeat them as well. This game has a great combination of easy to learn controls and super challenging boss fights. This game requires some major strategy so, if you're good at thinking fast then this is a game for you! Also, if you like ninjas or old school gameplay, then this is also a game for you! The only problem I have with this game is, that the graphics kind of suck, but other than that, this game is great!!!
Arcade ninja fun.
This game is a weird remake...I think. If it truly is a remake, it is the most altered, confused, warping, remake of anything, ever. And it is totally blow-your-mind awesome. In this game, you play as a new character, not Joe Hayabusa from the Sega Genesis Shinobi series. The story is that this character, is in a post-apocalyptic world, fighting demon-ninja-something-or-others, with the infamous Muramasa sword. This sword, will pretty much kill him if he stops giving it the blood/souls of his evil foes. The gameplay is fun and retro, the ninja magic is epic, the controls are easy to master. The boss battles are hardcore and do require one to be a strategist so, if you game with a brain or, just like ninjas, try this out! A great arcade style gem!!!
Fantastic and Unique Gameplay
Fun game in which you play as an awesome ninja that can pull off cool moves and skilled combos. One of the unique features is that your character can run on walls to get to special places and avoid traps. The graphics are fairly average for ps2 but the animations are awesome. The sound and music are exactly what one would expect from sega (pure awesomeness). For $3, definitely pick this one up.
Don't pass this one up...
When i first got this game, i didn't think much of it, though after playing it i found out how awesome of a game this really was. The graphics are good for the PS2, and the game is crazy difficult and fun. If your passin this up for another PS2 game, you'll regret it. Really. If you havn't played it yet it deserves at least 1 playthrough heh.
This is probably one of the best PS2 games I have ever played there's really nothing else I can say about it there's nothing wrong with this game it's just one of those game that was made right!
One of the most bloodiest games i ever played i would recommend this game to everyone fun game to pick up and play.
