Kids say (5):

This slickly made and satisfyingly stylish action game isn't just another run-to-the-right side-scroller. Players need to exercise thought, caution, and forward thinking as they take on cleverly designed environmental puzzles, all while discovering creative ways to subdue or bypass roaming enemies. The ninja's controls are tight and intuitive, making his movements and attacks highly gratifying. And while timing and precision are essential -- especially in later levels -- it's usually pretty easy to dash away from botched operations and try again. $15 games this deep, polished, and engrossing for older players don't come along every day. Highly recommended. Just keep in mind that, despite its cartoonish appearance, it's not intended for youngsters.
