El valor de este título radica más en lo que tiene de rareza (no todos los días se ven juegos originariamente programados por Sega que más tarde sean convertidos a NES), que en su calidad, siendo, de largo, la peor conversión realizada para consolas.
Besides the impressive bonus stages, presentation is average at best,
with dull graphics and sounds, which fails to live up to its arcade
roots. However, there’s some ninja fun to be had here, even if the
entire experience isn’t totally thrilling.
Tengen's Shinobi looks vaguely like the arcade version, but the control of the main character as well as the overall game play are sorely lacking. The game still contains a high level of action, with more than enough enemy thugs, but NES Shinobi unfortunately comes up short play-wise.
Despite missing features that define Shinobi, I didn’t hate the game. It controls well, and if you squint hard enough, the game still slightly resembles its older, better looking brothers. But just because Shinobi doesn’t inspire feelings of rage or hatred, doesn’t mean it deserves a space in the NES library. It’s a sad, inferior port of a great arcade game.
