i-Ninja PS2


I-Ninja is a cute little platformer that is clearly similar to games such as Ratchet & Clank and Gex. You're a little cartoony ninja, running around odd worlds with your sword and climbing chain.

There are numerous levels here, and as you go you build up your movies, weapons arsenal, and more. The game is very easy to pick up and get going with. You hit traditional buttons to jump and double jump, attack, and move. You can run up walls, use your chain to swing across gapes, and so on. Anybody who has played any Zelda / Ratchet / other platformers will have the basics of this game down in about 2 seconds.

That's not to say it's easy. Many of the levels can be quite challenging. You know WHAT you have to do - but you have to try over and over again to actually do it properly. This can on one hand be quite thrilling when you do make it to the end and savor your victory. On the other hand if you're a gamer who doesn't have hours and hours to devote to one level - and perhaps has a parent standing over your shoulder with a stopwatch ready to pull the plug on you - this can get really frustrating, really quickly.

There are checkpoints in the middle of missions, which helps a lot with the above-said replaying. At least you don't have to do the entire thing all over again from scratch.

The graphics are quite nice - they did a nice job with the textures and color combinations. Yes, a few things are still blocky, but this is a PS2. I really do feel they did a good job with the programming here.

All except for ... the camera!! The camera in this game drives me completely insane! There are so many times that I want to look in a certain direction and have to do a number of operations before I can get the camera to go there. You would think after all this time that game companies would make an easy to use camera system. I just don't get why i-Ninja has such a problem with this.

Still, you can live with it, and the game really is quite fun. Give it a try, and enjoy a game that can be enjoyable without swearing and mature situations!

i-Ninja runs perfectly on the PS3.
