All Game Guide
You would think that a game like Ninja Golf started off as some kind of late night programming joke. The combination of overhead golfing and 2D kick/punch fighting is interesting. Unfortunately, the repetitive gameplay and limited number of holes really hurt the replay value of the game.
The Video Game Critic
There are a few problems. First, fighting can be frustratingly difficult when multiple ninja are attacking from both sides. When fighters overlap, it's hard to tell what's going on. The limited number of moves make the action somewhat repetitive. Occassionally enemies seem to disappear from the screen for no apparent reason. Overall, Ninja Golf is no classic, but it gets by on its wicked originality.

Cross a watered down Double Dragon with a golf course and what do you get? An original but poorly executed fighting/sports combo entitled Ninja Golf.
