It doesn't help that SEGA did almost nothing with this title other than make it playable on 360. The smoothing option removes some of the rough edges, but doesn't make Shinobi look much better than it did 20 years ago and there's no "history of" element. For $5, this should have been a full Shinobi package with The Revenge of Shinobi and Shadow Dancer included. Shinobi isn't worth $5. It's that simple.
