This is probably my favorite Genesis game of all time...I still own the cartridge and play it regularly. The stupid "Traps" level always messes me up, no matter how many times I play through it, though I do admit it had the best background music in the whole game. I just loved the fact that you could expertly and infinitely drop-kick the bosses, whether or not you were on a horse, or a surfboard. Ah, to go back to the era where games didn't have to worry about little things like physics....

Is this the one in which Joe Musashi fights with Spider Man and Batman?

Naw, that was "Revenge of Shinobi", if I remember correctly.

This game wasn't bad, but I always preferred The Revenge of Shinobi over this.

Good game. I still likes Shining Force II over action style games. Where are the Old School RPG reviews )

"Those of you who loved the music from the second game will not be disappointed, as Shinobi III boasts some great songs throughout, all done with a bit of an eastern flavor to them."
I hate to get all technical, but Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi (1990) came after Revenge of Shinobi. Otherwise, great review. I think the added moves, as you said, make him more ninja like. The game was a vast improvement over Revenge, though, in every way. My only real complaint is that the timing on the double jump can get a bit frustating, having to do at the peak of the first jump.

Bah, Shadow Dancer was about his son. This game is about the real Shinobi.

They altered the story for the NA release, but yeah I guess. Also, I liked that they used a sad death theme, instead of that creepy one from Revenge.

Shinobi 3 was one of the Genesis games I adored when I was growing up, along with Landstalker, and I still enjoy playing it. If Sega had spent more time with all the great game franchises from their past instead of wasting it on Sonic, maybe they would still be in the console business.
