IGN: Shadow of the Ninja Review

Shadow of the Ninja is so similar in style to Ninja Gaiden that the Game Boy sequel Natsume decided to develop for it was ultimately bought by Tecmo, altered just slightly, rebranded and released as Ninja Gaiden Shadow. Safe to say, then, that anyone who's previously downloaded and enjoyed any of the three original NES adventures of Ryu Hayabusa on the Wii's Virtual Console would be making a wise investment to spend 500 more Points here. Shadow's not quite as smooth or memorable as Gaiden, and it'll frustrate you a few times as only an NES action game could -- but its unique qualities, like two-player co-op support, compensate well for any of its shortcomings.

The story is too old to be commented.
