The back story in Mini Ninjas is a simple one. You are among the last of the ninjas left and you must find out what has happened to the others. It is a bit predictable, right down to an "evil master", but the simplicity actually helps. The world of Mini Ninjas is basically Kung Fu Panda meets Lord of the Rings. You travel through a fantasy land filled with forests, rivers, mountains and valleys, but also peasants, villages, dojos, and temples. There is a bit of mild humor as well as a tad bit of stereo typing ancient East Asian (Japanese) culture, but not so much as to offend. The graphics are well done and in a 3d animation style reminiscent of Pixar. The story and play evolve just enough to keep a general player interested without creating confusion. In a move of genius, the IO Interactive managed to temper any violence in the game with back story - enemies a player defeats do not "die", but rather revert back to their innocent animal selves right in front of the player. This greatly broadens the age group the game is appropriate for and may also be appealing to the older gamer who is simply looking for some clean fun. There are trophies and optional side quests - some rather difficult. The control configuration is easy to pick up and intuitive if you are playing on a console you are familiar with.
That said, there are a few blemishes. The MSRP for PS3 and Xbox is a tad higher than deserved, however, the street price (~10 USD less at the time of writing) is justified. This is also not a game for speed players.Read more ›
It has a perfect control scheme, which I don't really see anyone else talk about, but which I consider very important, so let me describe it briefly:
Left stick controls your character, as in many other games
Right stick controls the camera, which I really like, and has option to invert, which is even better
Square is normal attack
Triangle is special attack
X is jump
Circle is sprint which consumes energy to run fast
L1 brings up a quick character selection menu
Holding L2 makes the character sneak
R1 brings up a quick item/spell menu, that selects which item/spell is activated by pressing...
R2 activates selected item/spell (can include shuriken, spells, potions, bombs)
R3 toggles the hat-boat item
I've been playing games since 1980 on the Commodore Vic-20, and my favorite games of the past have been Mario and Maximo games, but this game is easily as good as those games, in my opinion. It has a perfectly balanced play control scheme, well balanced difficulty that is fun, but not too hard to frustrate the player, with the default game difficulty being perfect for non-gamers, and the Hard mode preferred for players with more experience under their belts (though even that mode isn't too hard).Read more ›
This game is a hit at my house.
As long as everybody leaves me alone, I know their interest is held. As long as I don't hear any arguing or fussing, I know a strategy is being put together in their minds on how to defeat the bad guys.
My kids are 8 , 11, 16, and 39 and this game fits all of them!
You take control of 6 ninjas in all, but the main one, Hiro, is who you will be using predominantly. There is a lot of criticism that the other ninjas are useless or at least close to, but I've found that nearly every ninja serves a purpose. Besides the main one, there is one who specializes taking out the bigger enemies, one who uses a surprisingly useful bow as a weapon, and one or two others have a trophy linked to them, so that makes using them more appealing. The first two I mentioned along with Hiro are the ones I use predominantly, but each has their own style. Still, Hiro is the only one who can cast magic which makes him much more useful than the rest.
The game takes you on a marvelous journey from expansive forests to dark graveyards to icy peaks and even a variety of looming castles where enemy bosses lay in wait. The bosses are quite humorous typically, and the crazy rants of the average enemy make this game very entertaining along the way. There are many ways to get past certain situations, so it just depends on your playing style. A word of warning to hardcore gamers, however: since this is a game aimed at a younger audience, the difficulty isn't exactly high by any means. I'm about through the game my first time on hard, and I've only died maybe 3 or 4 times at most.
So if you want a game that's fun for anyone in the family, or you just happen to like ninjas, then pick up this game. This was somewhat of an impulse buy for me, but I was happy I listened to that little voice in my head instead of the reviews online. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
