I think I liked the original Shinobi in the arcade. Other Shinobis I haven't been so big on, and this one is no real exception. You can do some funky jump kicks, and I suppose the basic action isn't bad, but it also isn't really great. Hm, there was a horse-riding stage that looked kinda neat. I definitely didn't like the enemies holding shields, though; they just sit there and take hits for a while, and I'm not sure how you're supposed to take them out without either using up all your throwing weapons, or taking at least one hit yourself. Eh, well, I never claimed to be good at platformers.
