    Master System Cyber Shinobi

    You can't keep a good Musashi down! Cyber Shinobi sees the return of Sega's favorite ninja to the Master System, and while it may not compare to its classic Genesis siblings, it stands as a solid entry in the series. Some level design and presentation issues keep it from the head of the ninja pack, but it's definitely worth checking out. Read our full review for more impressions.

    Cyber Shinobi is a bit above average, a lot of people demonizes it just because doesn't looks like the other Shinobi games but overall is a competent try, no bugs with hit detection, cheap deaths or other common problems from bad games of that period. Also, the music of the first stage is one of the most memorable of the console.

    The Cyber Shinobi isnít the best Shinobi game out there, nor is it the worst.
    Sorry, but which is the worst then ? (at least on 8 / 16 / 32 bits machines ?)

    And yes, it has bad hit detection (but it's not really too bothering).

    There are four Shinobi games on SMS worth playing (I'm counting GG Shinobi's unofficial conversion as one) but Cyber Shinobi isn't one of them.

    Nes Shinobi is definitely much worse than Cyber Shinobi.

    Most likely, the game has an overall rating of 52 with 3 favorable(65% average) and 6 unfavorable(45% average) reviews and a Sega-16 review of 5 giving it an average grade. Which one would you consider the best and the worst out of the 4?

    Considering NES Shinobi looks and feels like a bootleg of the Master System version that's not saying much.

    Cyber Shinobi isn't the worst game but it's not one I'd recommend either.

    It isn't stated that it isn't the worst game (and indeed, it's just an average game), but that it isn't the worst Shinobi. But I don't see one worse (I don't count NES Shinobi because it's just a bad port). Maybe SMS Shadow Dancer ?

    Why? From what I've seen, it's graphically quite impressive, but slow and not very playable.

    I don't like the Shadow Dancer port too, but is just a weak conversion. I really think Cyber Shinobi is a bit better than it and also Shinobi for the GBA by 3d6 Games.

    My TOP 3 Shinobi games:
    1 SHINOBI and ALEX KIDD IN SHINOBI WORLD: Awesome games!
    2 CYBER SHINOBI: Not so good but not so bad
    3 SHADOW DANCER: Looks good but if you really play it, you know that is one of the most UNFINISHED game ever!
