What a gem, can't believe i took 4 years to say "yea, i'll install it and see what's up." Very enjoyable game, Pretty straight foward story and likable characters to play. A great adventure through jungles, castles and snow areas, slicing away evil samurais. Kept a smile on my face all the way through.

Cute is what defines this title most. The graphics are cartoony and simple, the heroes are very cute and so are most enemies. There is no gore in this game, no dark twists, controls are simple and there is no character management. This makes this game very suitable for kids but also less appealing for someone seeking more depth. There is a lot of running around which I found a bit frustrating since the characters move slow. Fighting is mostly fun and diversified by the different ninjas but at times the camera and control can be a bit messy. I played with xbox360 controller and it worked great, no other technical issues noted.

A nice light action adventure.
7/10

The game feels incredibly juvenile and the gameplay certainly shows. There's very little challenge involved in the game; the hardest part is actually the shoddy controls, not the content. The mouse and keyboard movements aren't very tight and quite a hassle overall. If you're over the age of 10, I would recommend another game.

Worst game ever. DO NOT BUY IF LEFT HANDED. Cannot rebind "jump" button which makes this game essentially unplayable if you're left handed. What a waste of money.

Very entertaining for several hours, but i do not recomend playing it through a second time, exept if you have forgotten how the game is. It is very repetive and might be letdown at the end.

This game is probably one of the most adoreable games I have ever played.
Aside from all the cuteness, the game has a very fun combat system where you can play as different (mini) ninjas who each have their own weapon and skills which make it very fun and interesting to play.
It's such a simple yet beautiful game packed with humor that I'm sure everyone will enjoy!

Really nice game to couch-play without having to focus too much, especially with a wireless controller. The graphics in the game create a sort of cozy feeling even though all enemies look about the same and it seems like they took a few shortcuts during development by reusing character models more than usual the game still did not feel too repetative as is the case in many similar games. Anyways, I really liked playing through it and would recommend it to others that are looking for a less serious adventure

I was looking for an easy fun game. This was it. Its a simplistic adventure game that has easy controls and cute characters. There are items throughout the game you can collect to get a perfect score at the end of each mini mission. The enemies are silly and have their own quirks too. Most would consider this a childs game, but I find it enjoyable as well. Exploring the surrounding areas to find all the items and having fun with animals is interesting as well. For a simplistic game, a lot of thought was put into the little things. If you are looking for a rush rush game then you wont like this style, but it is a nice change of pace to all of the more intense games.

A strange little game. It is cartoony and fun, but has a really great and very satisfying, if not a bit simple, combat system. It is childish and simplistic, but has a great story and fun jokes both for adult and young. It is very linear, but also rather open. With many sidepassages and a lot of things to do. From alchemy, to collectibles, to just floating around in your hat and fishing.

It has great music. Great voice acting. Great visuals. And it is fun to play. Definitely a must try.

This game is pretty fun.
Probably one of the few games rated for all ages that is worth playing.
Great artstyle and sound gameplay which plays a bit like a simplified Ninja Gaiden with a two button attack system and a ninpo spell system. In terms of length, my first playthrough took around 9 hours to complete which isn't too long, but for the price, I got it for one, Mini Ninjas is a great game.
Hopefully a sequel isn't too far off.

Even though it has been designed with kids in mind, with the lack of adult themes, it did actually entertain me. It's a very laid back hack and slash adventure that can be enjoyed by all ages. The combat is the weakest part as it is very simple compaired to most other games in the same genre. However the art style and Japanese setting is very nice to look at and actually it's simplicity makes it all the more enjoyable to play and explore. It tries to encoporate an open world design for each level while still being very linear, like the Crysis series there are different ways to approach and complete each goal. Overall I recommend this game to anyone who has younger kids to entertain, or has an interest in Japanese culture, or anyone that wants to switch off and kill a few hours. 7.5/10
