They're not that impressive, really. We've seen smaller.

Personally I think it was because he was sending them out one at a time, rather than say, a team.

Ok... yes, the opening is rather odd (even if the art style is great) but I didn't find it worthy of Unskippable. Disclaimer: I own Mini Ninjas and like it, it's was fun enough to finish at 96%. Only truly annoying thing is the camera controls, - and turn the wiimote, terrible idea.

Ok, ready now! /puts on asbestos suit

Just because we never really pimped it as hard as we should have before, the Unskippable T-Shirt: Evil Porpoises!

Same here!

By the way, this actually looks like a really good game, in a cheesy goofy way.

"Riverdance." That killed me. That tee's mine as soon as I can scrape up the bottle caps.

It's quite a fun game actually.
Though you only really get that one hat.

I think Paul was talking about this game in one of the podcasts. It sounded pretty fun from how he described it. Was it pretty much rescue all the ninja brothers and sisters then one more level to beat up the evil samurai?

I'm gonna see if I can get a shirt with 'I don't trust that bunny' on it.
I'm sure it would crack me up more that anyone else though, but I'd know... :lol:

I agree that this game seems fun. May have to check it out.
