Red face PSM Reviews Shinobi

Shinobi..............6/10

Okay

There are plenty of cool moves, and the lead character's lots of fuun to control, but boring level design and highly repetitive gameplay steal alot of this potential hit's thunder.

I had a feeling something was going wrong with the game when it looked like a crappy version of Devil May Cry meets Tokyo.

People said it was fun at E3 but I'm guessing it's a bit short. This really wasn't on my radar to begin with, and it isn't gonna get on there now.

SEGA is really getting hit hard by the Karmic justice squad this year.

edit - might as well post the rest of the info I saw:

Quote:
Ratchet & Clank............9/10
Outstanding
Ratchet & Clank has it all: a gorgeous, solid engine, good characters and a funny story, and an envelope pushing gameplay design blessed with tight controls. It's the total package.
*Game of the Month*

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus............8/10
Very Good
It may not be as grand as Ratchet & Clank, or as humorous as Ty, but Sly Ciooper will be remembered as one of the best platformers on the PS2.

Terminator: Dawn of Fate.....6/10
Okay
This should be a great game; it's pretty faithful to the license, and it's action-packed. Sadly, it blows its own metallic foot off with a bad camera and control system.

Shinobi..............6/10
Okay
There are plenty of cool moves, and the lead character's lots of fuun to control, but boring level design and highly repetitive gameplay steal alot of this potential hit's thunder.

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin..........8/10
Very Good
Hitman 2 is a great title that has its shortcomings, but adds up to a fulfilling (if violent) opus.

Evolution Skateboarding.........6/10
Okay
This is a much improved effort by Konami, but it's not going to out-Tony Hawk Neversoft. No way....

Defender............8/10
Very Good
Solid Campaign modes, gameplay variety, and great visuals make this a must-buy.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact...............9/10
Outstanding
You won't find a faster racer on PS2, and the control is simply some of the best we've ever encountered. How can you hate a game that awards points for huge crashes?

NHL 2003..............8/10
Very Good
It's not surprising that EA added a different style of gameplay to NHL 2003--there was nothing left to improve on.

NBA Shootout 2003.........7/10
Good
NBA Shootout 2003 offeres a solid game of hoops and is easily 989 sports' best effort in years.

NASCAR Thunder 2003.............8/10
Very Good
EA Sports has put together a fine piece of stock car racing simulation yet again.

Red Faction 2.....8/10
Very Good
RF2 stands on its own as one of the PS2's great shooters. Geo-Mod and solid FPS mechanics, vehicular segments and great muiltiplayer options make it a must-buy.

BloodRayne......6/10
Okay
An excellent premise and lots of swear words still aren't enough to elevate this basic vampire romp.

NBA Starting Five......6/10
Okay
This latest effort from Konami shows promise, but it's not yet enough to win over serious fans.

Shox........8/10
Very Good
Finally an arcade style racing game that's extremely fast, controls great, and is easy to get into.

NBA Live 2003........9/10
Outstanding
NBA2K3 may be a more realistic simulation of pro basketball, but we'll be playing NBA Live 2003 because the Freestyle control is what makes real hoops games fun again.

NBA 2K3............9/10
Outstanding
NBA2K3 is the most realistic, challenging, and polished basketball game we've played. But it's just not quite as fun as NBA Live 2003 overall.

Blade II.........4/10
Lacking
This oddly balanced game sadly fails to make any good use of a very cool comic book character.

Whirl Tour..........5/10
So-So
Papaya's attempt at broadening the genre is admirable, but this title fails to satisfy to any real degree.

Silent Scope 3.........5/10
So-So
The great physical satisfaction from the arcade game is lost without the honking-big sniper rifle.

DDRMAX...........9/10
Outstanding
Nothing touches this outside the rare "7th Mix" arcade machines. Don't miss it!

The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2...........8/10
Good
Loaded with cool extras and behind-the-scenes info, this is a true must-have disc for MGS fans.

Superman: Shadow of Apokolips......4/10
Lacking
Repetitive missions, bad flight controls, and too many robots make this game quite non-super.
GOTM for Ratchet & Clank. The Burnout 2 review sounds accurate too. Gonna get both as soon as the ol' wallet grants me permission... maybe I'll ask for them for Christmas.

Randy Nelson strikes again. He gave a 6 to the Mark of Kri and that turned out to be one of the more enjoyable games I've played this year. So I take his reviews with a grain of salt. Apparently he has a tough time giving a high score to anything besides racers.

I found Mark of Kri "average" at best. While average is decent by it's very defination I expected more from Kri and I expect even MORE than that from Shinobi.

I take Pun's reviews with a shaker of salt. He somehow enjoyed Buffy, the most annoying game ever, and thought Kri was only average? Kri was too short, that's it.

Oh man, that's crap. If it's really that bad, I still have Ninja Gaiden to look forward to. At least I don't have to spend that extra fifty bucks. Of course I'm still waiting to see more reviews and user reviews before I shun the game.

The gameplay itself isn't so bad, if a bit repetitive...but THE ANNOYING VOICEOVERS PISS ME OFF TO NO END. How many times do gamers want to hear the same cheesy one-liner? Apparently gamers like Pun can't get enough.

VOICE OVERS keep you from playing one of the best games on XB? I'm sorry man I just find that rather stupid.

The GAMEPLAY kicks ass...literally.

6 out of 10 huh? Not too great... Hopefully Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox will fair better. It certainly looks good. Hopefully it'll play well and be a lot of fun.

Yes. I couldn't stomach hearing the same lines repeatedly, and I was forced to not play it. I dont' care how "fun" the game is, it was pissing me off. It's a total package thing, ya know? No, I guess you don't.

They ran a Shinobi review on Extented Play today, and to me it looked like a poorman's version of Devil May Cry. It will be a rental first for me.
