Suffice to say that although being a bit hacknied in design concept, Dragon Ninja is very well executed in every department. Graphics, great. Sounds, good. Gameplay and addictivness spot on. Fun, fun, fun – even more so if you're playing two player.

Dragon Ninja's graphics and playability are up to the standards one now expects from quality beat 'em ups, and there are several funny little touches, it's just not tough enough, or varied enough, to really hold the average beat 'em up fanatic's attention for very long. And those few little touches apart, there's nothing here we haven't seen before. It's not that Dragon Ninja's bad: it's just not brilliant, and these days, that's what you've gotta be, matey.
Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja is certainly not a bad game in any specific way. All of its parts do their jobs without any major flaws. But it's evident that the developers didn't really get into creating the game, but used generic ideas and designs, doing the least amount of work wherever possible, making it almost impossible to enjoy.
