Clash of Carrots had the potential to be a real diamond in the rough, but it quickly becomes apparent that it's not when its novelty begins to fade.

I’m very much on the fence about this one, admittedly, as buying new equipment that allows you to effortlessly carve through waves upon waves of enemies can be incredibly rewarding, and a lot of the underlying ideas here are solid. The execution just trips up often enough that Ninjin: Clash of Carrots‘ attempts at variance start to feel like unfair gimmicks.

Ninjin Clash of Carrots is a blast in co-op, but difficulty spikes may put you off the challenge on your own.

Stylish presentation and quirky fun are Ninjin: Clash of Carrots's standout selling points. Retro graphics and an eccentric storyline are the heart and soul of the experience, even if the script is at times frustratingly over-the-top. Ultimately, Ninjin holds up as a mostly fun experience, but its co-op modes, amusing story, and enemy variety fail to overpower an over-simplicity that lets it down.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots tries so hard be like old time Beat 'em Up titles, and even tries to change the genre's formula by using Endless Runner mechanics, but it has failed in both, and the final result is a shallow, repetitive، boring and incomplete Beat 'em Up title.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an enjoyable and fast-paced beat'em-up that brings to the Nintendo Switch some of the aspects that made this genre extremely popular in previous decade. It does not go all the way through, as Ninjin can become very repetitive and without the same charm of the genre's classics.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots starts out as a silly, colorful beat 'em up, then takes a dark turn down a surprisingly frustrating and challenging path.

The game is cute and looks great, but thanks to its control scheme, isn't very fun to play.

Ninjin; Clash of Carrots is funny and cute. It is an evolution of the classic endless runner for smartphones, with more contents and a lot of weapons and customization suitable for the playable characters.

Ninjin struck me as just a little too frantic for its own good. Co-op is good fun and there's certainly plenty to unlock but, at £12.99 this might be just outside impulse buy range for most people.

Overall though and Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an interesting game. It brings a unique – albeit rather dull – story, and a rarely seen gameplay style to Xbox One

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is deceptively simple. There is enough depth to give players motivation to get better or try different things, though not enough to change the core experience. Even though the graphics are cute, there isn't much that stands out. Combine this with challenging enemies and deeper mechanics and you have an interesting experience. It's perfect if you're looking for something different to play locally or just like the genre, without there being a real hook for anyone else.

A quirky and charming beat-em-up with plenty of variety, strategy and humour. If the challenge doesn't put you off, you'll find yourself having having a great time.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is an action packed experience. While the story is barely interesting, the humorous moments are worth a giggle or two. The gameplay is simple enough that virtually anyone can enjoy, and its highly replayable. It’s challenging, but fun in a way that makes you want one more go. With 20+ hours of gameplay, and the inclusion of both online and couch co-op, Pocket Trap’s debut effort is worth your time.

Its final boss is destined to prevent all but the most dedicated of players from truly finishing it, but the journey there is so enjoyable that most won't care. Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is so unique that you can't help but give it some slack.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots is a kooky ride through feudal Japan in search of carrots. It's fast, it's fun, and it's great with two players. Give it a go if you're looking for some cartoon-y action with a friend.

Ninjin: Clash of Carrots' decent gameplay and lovely graphics make for an enjoyable experience, and there's enough differences between the characters and with weapon customisations to keep you playing. The completionist in me could spend days trying to unlock them all but the button masher in me just wants to pick up whatever is at hand and whack enemies. It's an addictive title with great replayability.
