SEGA AGES Shinobi it's another great work from M2, that keeps showing that it has no rival when it's time port and update classics. As the good wine, Shinobi it's a game that doesn't feel outdated, it's fun any arcade and action games lover should taste. The additions made by M2 are, simply, to make the game even better and more accessible.

Although Shinobi likely isn’t going to gain any new fans from this release, it is a comprehensive, well put together, package for the original game. It contains every modern enhancement I could think of, and for only its low asking price, it’s a steal for all Shinobi fans.

Sega Ages: Shinobi is still a great game more than 30 years after its initial release

Read full review

Shinobi as a game has aged extremely well – it's still an absolute blast to play today – and that goes a long way to making this a worthy download. The excellent variety of stages and enemies complement the tight gameplay which still feels spot-on even compared with later entries in the series, and its rather fanciful representation of ninjas is difficult to get too upset about when it's just so much fun. We'd frankly like to see some later Sega games appearing in the Sega Ages range at some point, but it's great to see a return to the company's heritage after some of the other more questionable releases.
