Ninja Warriors Again überzeugt wirklich in allen Punkten, technisch wie auch spielerisch. Die tolle Präsentation und die zahlreichen Angriffsvarianten machen immer wieder Laune. Für mich ist es ein richtiger Hit und das beste Ninja-Prügelspiel aller Zeiten!

Ninja Warriors is great, but it falls one difficulty level short of GREAT! It takes a lickin' and keeps on kickin' - booty! Not bad for a bunch of 'bots.
Le système de combat ininterrompu, qui permettait de frapper sans jamais cesser d'avancer, était vraiment unique en son genre. Comme le design de cette version Super Nintendo est unique en son genre. Et c'est peut-être là la conclusion plus générale de cette paire de tests (le premier qui ajoute "-icules", je les lui arrache). Ces deux jeux Ninja Warriors sont très différents l'un de l'autre et donnent deux perspectives intéressantes d'une même histoire, permettant de bien juger de l'apport créatif de chacune des deux compagnies, de ces deux piliers que sont Taito et Natsume, ninja bleu et ninja rouge de nos carnages vidéoludiques.
The Video Game Critic
Ninja Warriors may follow the typical fighting formula, but sometimes that's exactly what you want.
Game Players
A scrolling action game that's better than most because of its steady progression of varied and increasingly-difficult foes. The stages are long enough for you to feel like you've accomplished something.

This is the best side-scrolling fighting game yet! the three fighters are excellent and they actually require technique. The showing of your metal side in the arcade is gone, but that is only a minor quibble. Great job guys!
Raramente mi sono sentito di dire che un gioco è esattamente come deve essere e che non v'è ragione per criticare un singolo aspetto delle scelte fatte dagli sviluppatori.
All Game Guide
The Ninja Warriors Again is an example of an old-school, side-scrolling fighter done right. None of the game's components taken alone are really noteworthy. But the game combines them into an experience that's more than the sum of its parts.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
It's easy to be hard on the game since it's so simple. It doesn't really seem like a sequel either, more of a remake with new features. Still, if the gameplay is engaging, none of that really matters. "Ninja Warriors" is a well worth tracking down if you enjoy some mindless action and you can ignore some of the small flaws. You won't need to think much, which makes it a great stress reliever and time killer. What more do you need?

Na also! Taito kann‘s ja doch noch. Nach der hundsmiserablen Mega-CD-Version überkam mich doch ein leises Schaudern, als ich das Modul in den Schacht schob. Doch schon ein exzellentes Intro mit groovigem Sound stimmte mich positiv. Was sich dann im eigentlichen Spiel bietet, ist ein wahres Festmahl für alle Action- und speziell Final Fight-Fans. Wunderschön animierte und farbenfrohe Sprites huschen vor atmosphärischen Hinter-gründen umher und lassen die Klingen blitzen und die Waffen sprechen. Da sieht man gleich, daß der Automatenklassiker komplett überarbeitet wurde. Auch die glasklaren Soundeffekte vom Messerschwingen bis hin zum markigen Schrei des taumelnden Robo-Söldners schaffen viel Atmosphäre.

Ninja Warriors is bloody (literally) good fun, and manages to exceed expectations. I was concerned that a 2D scrolling beat-em-up would be boring, but I was wrong. It is an action-packed festival of ass kicking that is on a par, if not better than, the excellent Final Fight SNES games (Final Fight 2 and 3 were Super Nintendo exclusives). The only thing that could have improved the game would have been the inclusion of a 2 player co-op mode, and maybe some more stages. But what is here is exciting, gripping, and great fun while it lasts.

Auch echte Hardcore-Freaks werden wohl kaum Freude an diesem Garne empfinden, denn zum drögen Gameplay gesellen sich ein lauer Sound und eine Sprachausgabe, die dem Wort „eintönig“ eine neue Bedeutung gibt.
