Top snes game, a must play!
24 August 2004 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

This game although the title may suggest other thing was a nice comedy action adventure trip for the snes.

Mystical ninja was a great combination of action/rpg, the battles were even fiercer than Zelda, both in 2d & upview perspective. Bosses were amazingly original. (i remember ninja gaiden was nice, but worse bosses, specially the first 2). Gotta walk through different stages tho each one contains elements of its own, you even get the try to enter a kids amusement park & play some mini-games. (some konami classics as well!)

The tale didn't wanted to be transcendental as most rpg's, was more like comedy, simple but entertaining for its naiveness.

The music is a killer aspect of this game, a fusion of techno soft beats with Japanese new school melodies, very epic, deep & funny as well.

The graphics are amazing for a snes game, great colors, nice cut scenes, many interesting character drawings as well, lots of japan culture in this game for sure.

I know this game has many sequels but never played them, expect to get them tho!

100% Recommended for people who find new games extremely boring.
