Mini Ninjas is a great start to what could well become a staple franchise for Eidos and IO. If you're hunting for collectibles, you'll easily spend eight to 10 hours on your journey. Even on the hardest setting, the game is never unbearably difficult. The bosses all follow predictable patterns, and fighting enemies is often optional, so most of your frustrations will come at the hands of the poor camera. But Mini Ninjas makes it easy to see past these issues and have a great time.

That said, there is a good deal of fun to be had here, if you play stealthily, and there are plenty of lovely little touches that do make you smile - you'd have to be the grinchiest of grinches not to at some points fall for Mini Ninjas' charm. The cutscenes are lovely, the dialogue and voice over work stereotypical but fitting, and the soundtrack is a wistful traditional Japanese score that rekindles memories of The Karate Kid. Still, Mini Ninjas will do nothing to quell the growing call from core gamers for IO's "next-gen" Hitman game.

Minor annoyances pop up every once in a while, but not enough to seriously disrupt gameplay. The camera is finicky at times, and the stealth mechanics and quick-time-event-centric boss fights are underdeveloped. If you can look past these mechanical issues, it's entirely possible to be sufficiently entertained by the characters and charm of Mini Ninjas.
