Comments: I hope grandpa got his share of japanese goods, if you know what I mean. These bitches are fucking tight, I got in prison for the first time because of one. Did not regret it a single day. I met some pretty fucked up people there, some are even regulars here. I don't remember where we discussed our carceral past but it was awesome. This place is pretty good for fucked up people. We even got Bush and fucking terrorists around here. There's professionnal sports players too.

Comments: The title screen with Shinobi's eyes shifting back and forth menacingly used to really freak out my grandpa. He was a Marine on Okinawa during the war and I guess it brought up some painful memories for him. He killed a lot of Japanese during the war, some of them soldiers. Good game, too.

Comments: Good translation of a great arcade game. Am I crazy, though, in thinking that bosses should get progressively harder rather than the Shinobi method of having the toughest boss (Mandara) in like the third fucking level?

Comments: Paul, I know we've been at odds over many different things here, but as something of an olive branch I am going to help you out a bit, though I'm sure you'll take it the wrong way. In your post below you wrote the possessive of "it" as "it's" not "its" as is proper. The form you mistakenly chose is actually an auxiliary contraction for "it is" with the "i" in "is" being replaced by an apostrophe. Worry not, Paul, I suffered from the same confusion once (though mine was in the third grade). You don't need to thank me, just promise to be more careful in the future. All in all, you seem to be one of the more thoughtful contributors to the site; generally I find you to be a refreshing change from the usual jive-ass turkeys that show up here. Peace out.

Comments: Ninja Gaiden superior? Why don't you go strap a dildo to your NES so you can suck it's dick. I know, I know, they made a Ninja Gaiden for the SMS, too. Shut up with that shit because any true Sega fan wouldn't have bought that fucking garbage to begin with.

Comments: The atmosphere and music of the game is compelling. The graphics and backgrounds are charming. I don't like the fact that the player has to "wait" until they've killed half a level before the magic becomes accessible. Press and hold jump, when Joe lands he looks like he's doing some mystical prayer-like pose, he is then ready to use magic, just push button A (attack). What also sucks about the magic is that you can't use it on the mothers (bosses).

Comments: This game is great. It reminds me of my second eldest brother. I was the Sega Champion, but he was the first I remember watching play it at primary school when we had a fete. Everyone had a stall of their wares, and a kid in my brothers class had his Sega Mark I and people lined up to play. I just finished the game today on emulator/rom. Classic. The end is sad though (black screen - "The End"). I give this about a 7 out of 10. Until Joe Musashi becomes Godfather of Neo Zeed, make mine SMS!

Comments: It is a good game already. I guess the master system couldn't handle anything better than tiny like flea sprites. Just a few tunes and bland use of colours and backgrounds and a horrifying spitting sound that can be heard when you fire your weapon. But it isn't really the arcade version. WTF should I play I ghastly home version with a lifebar and with nearly impossible to pull off ninjamagic's? You pathatic wankers go play this crap, I stick with the REAL arcade version.

Comments: Good game, loved it, although ending was weak. About the comments of NES beating the SMS, it only beat the SMS in the USA. SMS kicked the shit out of NES in Europe, and South America as well I think. SMS was a superior system, had a larger palatte, meaning more colorful, meaning better graphics, and had better sound, just compare the tech specs of both systems. NES monopolized on game developers by requiring developers such as Konami to sign a contract stating that they would only develop games for their system. Most NES games look half assed compared to SMS games(play castlevania or metroid for example, only 2 colors are used for the character and detail is low, where SMS characters are much more detailed and colorful, such as in Zillion, Space Harrier, etc).

Comments: There are some interesting people on this site. Anyway, Shinobi was always one of my most coveted SMS games. It was one all my Nintendo owning friends really took to. It looks great, it plays great, and you can make steady, if slow, progress through it. I least I could until I ran afoul of that Mandara asshole. I never did beat that fuck. My friend did once and it tainted our relationship forever. Once I learned the level select trick I didn't have to worry about Mandara ever again, but it still bothers me that I never beat him. What is ridiculous about the whole thing is that Lobster, the next boss after Mandara, is a complete puss. Overall, a good game and a very good showcase to all the Nintendo victims I knew that the Master System was the superior machine.

Comments: Aren't ninjas supposed to rely on stealth? So why are old video game ninjas always acting like samurais or Clint Eastwood? I don't care what kind of shurikens they are, a ninja is no match for a bunch of gun-toting mo-fos--especially if they know you're coming. Unless, of course, said mo-fos are packing guns that shoot bullets that move slower than a knuckle-ball... A good, solid, but unspectacular game.

But you kill yourself for over a year as a young kid, neglecting friends, family, school, playing Shinobi every day for 10 hours a day, and you beat it, expecting to see something cool, something awesome, some kind of reward for all of this dedication and hard work, and it's like, 'GAME OVER'. I threw the cartridge out the window.

Comments: I got quickly bored of this game. Used to be good to throw in to swap-deals, though. Give 'em an ok game with this one, then they'll give you a cool one back. Sorted! Until they realise that Sinobi really is poor and that G-LOC isn't an 'ok' game, then they come round your house, with big brother et al, and then your left with the little ninja. Never completed it, but used to like the title screen ninja's eyes moving from side to side. If thats the highlight of the game then I guess that says a lot! Just the 3 Alex's for this one.

Comments: This game kicked ass up down left and right. I mean no other game like at the time could touch its graphics, gameplay, and challenge. Sweet Lord, please calm my soul!!!! The worst thing about this game was the ending. All it said was \"GAME OVER\". What kind of jacked up piece of crap ending is that? You basically had to play your ass off until the end. And the last boss was a nightmare. He was a ninja that would disapear and then materialize somewhere and blow this whirlwind thing at you. If you were lucky to kill him, then you can see the terrible ending. I would of gave it a 10 if not for the sucky end.

Comments: this game is excellent in NEARLY every way. TRUE STORY!!!! when it first came out i was about 9 yrs. old with nothing better to do than perfect my ninja skills by beating this game. i figured:"this is for sure the coolest game in the world! the ending must be amazing!" so i spent the majority of the school year ignoring my homework and practicing Shinobi. when i wasn't practicing i was reading about ninjas and japanese history, culture etc. So when victory day comes (and i've driven myself past the point of insanity figuring out the tricks to beating that scary "Masked Ninja") i'm so pumped to see the ending....here it comes..drum roll.....GAME OVER WHAT??? GAME OVER???? WHAT THE @%#$ KIND OF ENDING IS THAT????? DAMN YOU SEGA!!! you flawed a nearly perfect game in a REAL bad way. and i always did wonder why Musashi didn't have his ninja mask on in the game!?.......narcissism?

Comments: This game is so much the classic. Why does it have to be so goddammed hard? What's the level select cheat I keep reading about? I think Tengen made a deal with Sega, where they would purposefully make the NES version as SHITTY as possible. Boy it looks and plays like SHIT! The SMS version is a breath of fresh fucking air, and one of the best games for the system. 9 AKs

Comments: Shinobi is Sega's masked ninja and can kick some serious ass! Game is not like the arcade version, but pretty good translation for the Master System. Cool boss charactors, average graphics, and classic gameplay make this game a winner. Shinobi makes Sega proud!

Comments: I remember when I Was in grade school I used to get one of those wish making weeds and wish that I'd get Shinobi. Back then carts would cost ya 60 bucks or more! IT was insane! Although carts have always been that much, for the time...it never seemed worth it. Also...who loves the Shinobi games on Genesis...I wasn't too much into the second but Shinobi III kicks so much ass. Kiler graphics...just to die for. I often go into the options and put my shuriken level to 0 to all that I use is my blade. God it's so much fun when you have to get right up in there face and then CUT IT OFF!!! WOO HOO!! Shinobi RULES!!!

Comments: While Astrosmash on the Intellevision was the first video game I ever played, Shinobi was the first Sega game I ever played. And it was and still is one of the best Sega games out there, even today. The way I see it, this game rocked, and the series is Sega's oldest and longest running. They won't be making one for Dreamcast since it won't be around much longer, and XBox and Playstation 2 blow, so I had better get my Jo Musashi fix on Gamecube. This game was pretty difficult in the later levels, and those ninja on the conveyor belts in the bonus rounds were just too hard and too many to kill. But the level design kicked ass, and even though Musashi moved slow, that didn't matter 'cause it gave you more time to examine your surroundings. I have never beat this one, but I have never used to code in an attempt to do so, and I did know it. I'll beat it some day.

Comments: The Shinobi series is my favorite game series. The SMS version of the original is much better than the NES version. Not my favorite Shinobi game(It would be a toss up between Shinobi 3 on Genesis or Shinobi Legions on Saturn), but the original still rocks!

Comments: i'm buying a system.....this game is engrained in my memory. i sucked out it. i remember the frog men from the wharf level. or is that the sequel. whatever. this game fucking kicks the sweat off a donkey's balls, then drinks it. thats tough. props to wayne. i'm only giving nine becuase i have a grudge against this game: it was too hard so the prick who let me play it at his house always yanked the controller away from me and did much better. i had sex before him tho. natch.

Comments: Shinobi is a god damn classic. Too bad the sms couldn't handle the game. Too damn slow. I love games where you play a ninja though and you're battling the whole god damn world. Notice how on the box art though they didn't want to make Shinobi's eyes too chinky. Don't you nerd idiots see that? No insight. You would think you had it too, because I'm sure a lot of you have had real lonely lives, which makes a person insightful. But still you don't. But fuck you Sega America for being ashamed of chinky eyes because I don't like gooks too much but be proud of what you are. I do like ninja's though. The graphics of the title screen kick ass and shinobi has his chinky eyes again. You will triumph against ninjitsu mother fucker.

Comments: When I used to own this game, I played it on the emulator on my computer so I could save my position. By simply reloading my saved state every time I died, I virtually had infinite lives. It's the only way I can finish it. Boy, you should see the ending. The screen goes black, and in little white letters in the centre of the screen are the words "the end". No credits or anything! If it had a better ending I would have given more Alex's

Comments: Excellent game. You should use the knives, when facing the buddha statues. When you start fighting them, just stand there (meaning don't move from your spot) and fire away. Don't use the Sega rapid fire, because it'll screw you over!!! This is the best Ninja game out there. Cyber Shinobi sucked (real bad), and I have yet to play Shadow Dancer. Game is very addicting. The nintendo version was terrible. Excellent game.

Comments: an awesome game. I was first introduced to it by these teenagers across the street, when I was in 4th grade, we used to lend each other SMS games, and after I borrowed this one, I had to have it. It took me 9 years to get it though, but atleast its mine eh? The damn Buddah statues are hard as hell to shoot though.

Comments: A great game and a must have for any SMS owner. Very good for an 8-bit arcade translation. Much better than Tengen's shitty NES version. This is the one to own. I have played this game a lot, but to this day have never beat it (the ending is really shitty). If you want a great game with a great challenge, get off your ass and get this!
