Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master features roughly the same type of rock solid gameplay as the previous games in the series (walk, jump, use magic, throw shurikens, dodge obstacles), but this one introduces a variety of new moves, including a Spiderwalk maneuver for moving hand-over-hand across ceilings and a Kabekeri technique for side-to-side wall-climbing. The title character now moves faster (especially when executing the Ninja Dash) and, depending on the level, rides a horse, pilots a jet ski, and battles his way up a very long elevator. The enemies in this game, many of which appear to be aliens or lab experiments gone wrong, are less conventional than in the first two games, and the visuals are more colorful and more detailed than ever. This is truly a fine sequel in a great series of games. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
