    To me it's 1-Shinobi III and 2-Revenge of Shinobi. I don't like Shadow Dancer.

    Terrible Beat is one of my top boss themes of all time, despite how quickly it loops.

    Shadow Dancer all the way. The game follows the perfect level layout and tight controls of the original system 16 Shinobi.

    More than a life bar, I wish Shadow Dancer had a slide move. It seems like a natural fit for the game -- every time an aerial attack comes my way, I instinctively want to press down + jump to avoid it.

    Agreed, is pretty amazing and put you in the mood on the start... i love it

    About the games.. i think that Shinobi 3 is the best one, the fine balance between revenge of shinobi and shadow dancer..

    I haven't actually finished Shinobi 3 yet, weirdly, but I have the other two, and I'd go with Shadow Dancer. It follows the original game's much rarer formula; short levels, methodical gameplay, 1 hit and you die (Rolling Thunder is another similar and very underrated series, with two Genesis entries). After just finishing Shinobi (arcade) recently, Shadow Dancer actually seemed easy; you have way fewer ninjas to deal with, your sword has more range for close attacks, and you can send your dog to immobilize foes. The only really hard part is the final boss. And the visuals and atmosphere are great. Revenge is really good too, though.

    Shadow dancer is my third favority, the music and fealing of the game is amazing, also it resembles the original like you said..
    but if you look deeper.. its always pass me the sensantion of B production at the time..

    it came before of revenge of shinobi.. you expect the up in quality.. better grafics, presentation and effects..
    and is the opposite of that.. the game is much more simple and this reguard, the sprites are smaller
    the majority of bkgs artworks are grainy ...

    i always got dissapointed that you dosen't even have the ninjtsu voices overs, even the SMS version got it..
    Also they just get the alternative version of bonus stage of SMS, where the FPS shurikin bonus that i love?

    Shinobi III is one of the most perfect games that I've ever played.

    Also "Whirlwind."
