We all know ninjas are ace - but which ninjas are ace-est?
Ninjas chop stuff, slice stuff, hide in the shadows, chuck stars and - most importantly - never talk about brexit. But which games translate the Ninja experience better than any other?
I’ve included all Ninja series I can think of but surely there must be more?

Obviously Sega’s Shinobi series but Last Ninja comes a close second.

Ninja Gaiden/Shadow Warriors is one of my favourite arcade games but with the exception of the origina Lynx conversion, the NES, SNES, Gameboy, Master System and PC Engine where platform games(the St and Amiga versions don’t count as they where Shadow Warriors in name alone). Even the later Lynx titles took the platform route. With the unfinished Beta Megadrive Shadow Warriors being a re-imagining of the arcade game.

I'll go for other - Saboteur. The games were always fun back in the day, but the recent remake is nice too.
