The Games Machine (UK)
Graphically as impressive as the Amiga version, the ST game contains the same rip, mangle and maim fun. Once all six levels have been completed interest may wane, but it will take many hours of slaughter to reach old Bangler himself.
What is is that makes ninjas sell games by the bucketload? There really is nothing like a good oriental beat 'em-up is there?
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Ninja Warriors has transferred from coin-op to computer extraordinarily well. The graphics are small, but well-defined, and a novel loader ensures a wide variety of assailants throughout. Play is tough, but it's a conversion that hack 'n' slash arcade fans will relish.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Perfect coin op graphics, complete with a great soundtrack make an attractive game, and that linked with the fun you'll have playing it makes it a sure winner.

Ninja Warrior takes a while to get to grips with, but will soon have you coming back for more.
A major plus point in its favour is the inclusion of a simultaneous two-player mode which considerably ups its appeal and makes the game slightly easier. Ultimately, though, Ninja Warriors remains one of those annoying games which, while very slickly executed and presented, is limited by the quality of the original. Nice conversion - shame about the coin-op.
To be quite honest, I quite enjoyed playing Ninja Warriors, even though it's not graphically astounding, nor does it break any barriers in the sound department. The good thing is that it's so easy to play - no complicated rules to learn - all you have to do is get out there and give 'em hell. The trouble is, there is not enough there to keep you coming back for more. I can only suggest you try the game first before you go out and spend your hard-earned cash on something you might not like.
