One of my alltime favourite platform hack and slashers. Very awesome game, and judging by the standarts of the other §D classics titles from SEGA, were in for a real treat.

Would prefer the Arcade Original from Shinobi & the Arcade Shadow Dancer, but heck... dont we love those Shinobi games at all ? ( exept. Cyber Shinobi )

This is the Ninja game that set the standard for all 2D action games, it got everything right, the music, the graphics, the varied level design, the fast paced combat, something missing from all previous entries, I only wish this game got a TRUE sequel with all of the combat elements in place but upgraded with more fluidity and grace, that shinobi 3ds refake was terrible. Even though I already own this I will buy this immediately, its just that dam good.
