Mini Ninjas may not blow down any doors, but it is unique and very well executed. It's also fun, with appealing visuals and interesting environments designed for exploration. In some places, the game may fall a little bit short, but don't let that fool you. In the end, it's all Ninja, and not to be underestimated.

Don't be put off then by the for-kids tag. There's a lot to enjoy about Mini Ninjas, not least the ability to switch between five other characters - Futo, Hiro's obese, hammer wielding mate, and the four ninjas dispatched earlier by the sensei, though none of them are such a complete all-round package as Hiro. If there were a little more variety to the gameplay, this would be damn nigh essential. As it is, it's a high-end, polished game that'll crease your chops into an appreciative grin.

Mini Ninjas is obviously a game that was created with children in mind, and in the 'good, clean, wholesome fun' department, it truly excels. Of course adults used to more meat on the bone in their action titles might find it a bit lacking.

Though Mini Ninjas might be somewhat hard to distinguish from all of the kid targeted shovelware eating up retailer shelf space, it is definitely worth taking a closer look. Kids will be able to play through with minimal frustration while enjoying the charming sights and sounds, and adults will appreciate the solid gameplay, excellent level design, and great attention to detail. Anybody shopping for a younger gamer should definitely give Mini Ninjas some serious consideration, and hardcore Wii gamers starving for a good adventure might want to look into it for some unexpected fun.

Mini Ninjas es un buen juego de acción, divertido, entretenido y capaz de ofrecer unas buenas horas de diversión, pero está lejos de ser uno de los grandes de su género. No cuenta con opciones multijugador (y con tantos personajes protagonistas, alguno modo adicional o un cooperativo le habrían sentado muy bien), y lo cierto es que resulta algo corto. Se incentiva la rejugabilidad con coleccionables, pero ni es un arcade directo ni una aventura profunda, por lo que se queda en tierra de nadie a la hora de potenciar darle una segunda o tercera vuelta a su historia. Eso sí, es encantador, y si le perdonamos esas carencias que lo alejan de un título genial, nos quedará un muy divertido título de acción.

Even though Mini Ninjas might not be as in-depth or content heavy as its modern peers, it's still a charming, fun game that opens up ninja culture to kids. The folks at Io Interactive clearly have a lot of love for the genre, as the stirring environments and music make this journey a pleasure to experience, even if the Wii version was an afterthought.

Mini Ninjas is een leuke game voor jonge en beginnende gamers. Voor de meer gelouterde gamers biedt de game echter te weinig uitdaging. Ook is het gebrek aan een multiplayer modus een gemis.

Derrière son petit côté mignonnet et coloré, Mini Ninjas est finalement un titre relativement riche qui plaira non seulement aux plus jeunes, mais aussi aux adultes qui ont su conserver un peu de leur âme d'enfant. Malheureusement l'ensemble est gâché sur Wii par une prise en main laborieuse qui demandera un certain temps d'adaptation.
