I guess the big guy will bring some variation to the fighting, when swinging his banhammer. :D

Looking top-notch! If they only showed some gameplay.

Looks incredible, but i'm still missing blood...its clearly such a dark game and blood is just missing. If that medic really gets smashed by that hammer, sure i don't expect real 'horrible' gore..but blood effects in the least?

Why are they never bother to learn some russian before actually using it?

What does that say? Something like "dsoker sarja"...like "joker army"? Can you just translate into human letters? :)

Never played the first one, but hear only good things about it. I just really dont like the character models. They look so fake and stupid. I just can't take it seriously, i think.

Maybe i should just give it a try.

Totally agree. It's not going to cause me to not buy the game, but it really does make the combat feel a bit lacking. Like you said, it doesn't need to be over the top, but a little bit when pummeling someone would go a long way.

This has always been a point that bothers me. Game developers taking a violent game (they do it with shooters all the time as well), and simply remove the color red in order to get a "T" rating and sell the game to kids. Seriously, is shooting someone in the face suddenly not a violent act because you don't see red blood afterword? I have even seen games that simply change the color of the blood to get a T rating. IMO, it is worse for a child to see all the violence with no horrific consequence, as it trains them to believe violence has no consequences...

It should probably mean smth. like "Tsar's Joker" but it doesn't have much sense in Russian since there's literally no such term as Joker (transliterated into Russian just like it is) in it unless it's a personal name of the character/person or name of the specific playing card from some related card game like poker. Another thing goes for "Tsar's" using which actually could but shouldn't be used that way. Hard to explain)). Anyway the combination of the words on tattoo has a little to no sense. Too bad I can't explain it better with my english since it's too far from being perfect itself )).
P.S.
Also using reminds of tsar and communist's "the hammer and sickle" logo in one tattoo feels like quite an oxymoron to me. Not a clever but a stupid one.

Man, I never once wanted or even noticed the lack of blood in the first one. The only minor(VERY minor) gripe I had with the first was how all the enemies' hands went up to their heads when they were defeated. It just looked awkward after the 50th time.

Sign translates like "joker of the king (or kings joker)".

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (6 Hours ago)
