AtomicGamer: Mini Ninjas DS Review

Like aliens, commandos and renegade cops, ninjas are some of the most overused video game characters around. Because of that, a game company has to be either really brave or really foolish to attempt to develop a game around such a shop-worn cliché. As evidenced by their new DS action/platformer Mini Ninjas, IO Interactive (makers of Kane and Lynch and several of the Hitman titles) and Magic Pockets (makers of mediocre movie-based games) considered themselves up to the challenge. Their ambition is admirable but the result of it is a sometimes amusing but incoherent action/adventure/RPG/platformer that never really gels. (Mini Ninjas, Nintendo DS) 65/100
