Another from the Ocean stable, the Ninja Collection doesn't set a place at its table for Mr Variety. All three of the featured games are reasonable but not brilliant beat-'em-ups.
Double Dragon is the oldest and wrinkliest of the Double Dragon series of ninja games. Double Dragon 2 is riding high in the budgie charts even as we speak. Double Dragon 3 was reviewed last month. And if you've played one, you've played them all.
Dragon Ninja has also enjoyed a large sortie into the budget charts recently (meaning that a lot of you have probably already got it). It's a pretty good game, with different platforms, passing traffic and stuff like that to liven it up.
The version of Shadow Warriors on The Ninja Collection is, strangely enough, identical to the version of Shadow Warriors on 2 Hot 2 Handle.
Nice one Ocean - there's a really neat way to nark off people who are thinking of buying both packs...!
