I highly recommend this game for anyone who wants to improve their reflexes whether it's in games or the real world. It was developed for gamers, but it honestly reduces your reaction time to help with things like martial arts as well.

You ever wonder what it would be like if they took a tablet game that made use of gesture controls and made it for the PC crowd and a mouse and keyboard?

Wonder no more.

It's decently well done, but GOD...I used to have a lot more freetime/disposable income back in the day.

Have fun catching the flies with chopsticks!

I can only recommend this game by the slimmest of margins. It's enjoyment wears thin and the feeling of "more of the same, only a little harder this time" is unavoidable. This can be minimized by short sessions, which is probably how it was meant to be played anyway. Another gripe is that multiplayer seems to be discontinued, just as the dev's website is also nowhere to be found. This breaks almost half of the game's achievements and reduces its overall value considerably. However, if your expectations don't rise above a series of fun and unique minigames that test your twitch skills, then you should be happy with Ninja Reflex. Just wait until its on sale...

To me this game is more of a "Mouse burn-in" program. i often install and play it when ive gotten a new mouse or drawing tablet and wan't to get used to it asap. tough beyond that i hardly play.

Its best to treat this game like a utility for mouse calibration, rather then a game to improve "skills"

Enh... can be enjoyable, but the game is clunky, difficult to play in long settings, and seems designed to give you carpal tunnel syndrome.

Ninja Reflex just doesn't seem to pack a ton of value, and the repetitive nature of the minigames may grate on you after a while. There's also a sense that this is probably a much better game on the Wii, since that system actually requires you to use your arms like a ninja. Overall, I would say it's "Okay" about a 6/10.

A simple reflex/response tie based mini-game game, Ninja Reflexes fails to interest beyond simple attemps to improve one's score. They slowly introduce you to variations on 6 mini games, unlocking them as you achieve new "belts." At each level, you must complete the same minigames you did on the previous belt with slight increases in difficulty along with a new challenge modification for that level.

If this is some kind of brain/reflex training game, then I can see some merit, but as just a game to play an have fun, it fails in that regard. It's too simply, too repetitive and the controls never quite feel right for a few of the games. Targeting and then throwing ninja stars just doesn't work with a mouse.

I can't really recommend this game, even under $1.

Pretty fun little mini-game game to play when you don't feel like playing "real" games. The constant Half-Life references are a bit annoying, but it's fun over all.

I actually employ the meditation mode on occasion.

Has it helped hone my reflexes? Honestly, I'm not sure. However, it can be idle fun and the challenges are varied and difficult enough to keep some interest.

The art-style is interesting, and the music is a nice touch.

More then just a game, increase your reflexes, your art of breathing, and overall body, mind, and spirit. This can be used as a tool to improve your performance in other video games and even real life.

Alright, speaking from the perspective of a gamer, this is not a great game. It's somewhat repetitive and has no plot. However, speaking as a martial artist, it's actually quite good! It trains hand-to-eye coordination in a way that is extremely easily translated to the rest of your life (unlike some fps which develop incorrrect reflex responses) and it is not based in a hack-slash mentality. It's the best game-form of basic skill training I've ever found.

I think it's more of a tool than a game. Like that treadmill you bought years ago and is now gathering dust in your basement.
You WILL find out how bloody slow your reflexes are, and this thing WILL improve them a bit. Quite fun to play, also.

A true ninja doesn't make attention, a true ninja is silent and lethal. A true ninja doesn't fight, a true ninja strikes and makes deadly hits without any mistake, a true ninja left no chance for the target to fight back. A true ninja is quick. Real quick. Are you a true ninja?

Nothing groundbreaking but a good laugh. Can be very difficult near the end and the competitive local multiplayer makes for a entertaining party game. Only has a few different levels to chose from but they get away with it by changing stuff around, also thought the few Valve game references in there were cute.

If you are bad at the FPS games, this is a thing you can train yourself with! Just as long as you don't mind the crippling blow to your dignity.

Also if you actually try to meditate with the game, there's a feature where I come to your house and set you on fire.
