As you may know, not all games are created equal on all platforms. Just take Tomb Raider Underworld for example — although the game is entertaining on both the DS and Wii consoles, when push came to shove, I much preferred the DS version of the game for its controls and fun factor. So where do these two versions of the same game stand? Find out when you read more
To say that Mini Ninjas is cute is an understatement. I already knew I was falling for this game back when I first saw the trailer, but I had no idea how great it would be until I got my hands on it at E3. It's not only a cute game, but it's totally addictive and really, really fun too. As the story goes, you play as one of three student ninjas (you can switch back and forth between once they are all unlocked) that are out to defeat the evil Samurai Master and his warriors, who are really forest animals whose spirits have been captured for some serious wrongdoing.
Playing the game is simple, but keeps you interested, not only for the controls and tricks, but because of the art style. And besides, who doesn't like being a ninja?! You can use the forest animals you've freed from captivity along the way to your advantage, and each character has a super power they can use to help in the quest, not to mention some spell action achievements you can earn.

Who doesn't love ninjas, especially when they're mini?! Fighting their way into your consoles this Fall is Mini Ninjas, which is sure to be the cutest game since LittleBigPlanet as far as I can tell from these screenshots. Mini Ninjas has you playing as one of two student ninjas that has been sent out by the Master Ninja to defeat the evil Samurai Warlord and his band of forest animal warriors.
Although you are your master's last choice to defeat the evil forces, you find that you have some serious skill as Hiro, the youngest of students, and a great intimidation factor as Futo, the largest (and of course, slowest) student. I can appreciate a great fighting game, but Mini Ninjas looks like it has a lot more going for it than just button mashing — the scenery looks fantastic, it has a cool retro art style, and the story seems to remain pretty positive, so even the younger set can enjoy playing.
