Mini Ninjas

 

Mini Ninjas for the DS has it all. It's got fun platforming segments, RPG elements that give you a sense of progress, interesting and unique boss battles, and large, aesthetically pleasing environments... So how could it have possibly been such a bad...

Mini Ninjas for the DS starts off with a very promising introductory video that made me very excited to play the game. It was shot in a style reminiscent of the older cartoon, Samurai Jack, which got me pumped. If you've ever seen the show Samurai...

Toward the end of the introduction, after that wonderful Samurai Jack moment, you find out that this quest you're on has been attempted by countless ninjas before you, and you're the last hope for the world. I don't mean the good kind of last hope,...

Mini Ninjas for the DS has its good moments, but it has a lot more bad ones. Every once in a while you're handed a fun platforming segment, but more often you're thrown into repetitive fights with the same boring enemies you've been fighting the whole...

Mini Ninjas on DS follows the same basic premise as its console brethren, though the gameplay is presented in a more mission-based format. You'll play as Hiro, with an option to switch out with two other main characters, Futo and Suzume. A...

Mini Ninjas Nintendo DS Preview

 

One of the first games in a long time that is actually tons of fun for all ages.

Worth the hype?

While the spirit mode makes for some interesting use of the DS, the overall “broken” feel creates a less than satisfying affair.

Contra IV Contra returns this time for the Nintendo DS.

 

I'm not going to lie I've been playing Contra IV for the Nintendo DS on easy mode. For a while I was playing on normal mode. Lots of difficulties came about on the second stage (waterfall stage). Falling boulders from the holes in the wall ...

unlimited ammo, decent power ups

You die too easily, and can only switch between two weapon projectiles

contra 4 just misses the bulls eye on a perfect old school throw back

 

I got Contra 4 a couple of weeks ago when I noticed it on sale for the Nintendo DS. Now contra was one of my favorite old school shooters, but latest offerings like contra hard crops has made me wary. But I picked up the game knowing it had at least...

plenty of shooting

lame power up system

A Homage to a Great Series

 

The Contra timeline has been plagued since its early hits. The NES and SNES sequels which were the heyday of frustrating , but very fun running and gunning. However, the Contra series took a wrong turn when it went 3-D. In an effort to reclaim the ...

Retro, Addicting, Challenging, Bonus Content

Maybe a little too hard, Split screen can become confusing/hectic

Contra 4 Review - DS Sequel Signals a Return to Old School -

 

The first time I’ve played the Contra series, was when the very first game came out in 1987. It was a revolutionary-cult hit, one of the best 2-d side-scrollers at the time that featured two-player gameplay, a riveting soundtrack, huge bosses and ...

proper tribute to Contra series, great graphics, dual screen action, lots of extras

high difficulty, can't choose starting stage, gap between DS screens
