Shinobi | £6.99 | GAME | 3DS

Shinobi's combat is intense, brutal and delicious in equal measure. Unfortunately, its platforming and level design leaves much to be desired, resulting in an experience that's too cheap (in fact, borderline unfair) to recommend to all but the hardcore. Still, if you love killing ninjas and accruing delicious points, GAME are offering a very competitive price for a new copy.

Green Lantern: Rise Of The ... | Wii

Green Lantern: Rise Of The Manhunters | £7.85 | ShopTo | Wii

This one puts the power ring of the Green Lanterns into the palm of your hand, which means you'll have access to numerous light constructs that can be used to smash your enemies into pieces. Sadly, this isn't the greatest game in the world and it gets repetitive far too quickly. ShopTo are parting with Wii copies of the game for £7.85, which'll make you a saving of just over £5 on the next best offers out there. Thanks to leeds_united_afc @ HUKD.

Captain America: Super Soldier | £14.99 | Grainger Games | 3DS

If you're a 3DS owner and you want an adventure starring a Marvel Comics super hero to carry around with you then you might want to grab a copy of Captain America: Super Soldier from Grainger Games for £14.99, which'll make you a saving of almost £5 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. The story's not bad and the combat has a bit of variety in it thanks to the shield, but sadly the graphics aren't particularly great and the camera is absolutely infuriating.

Shinobi 3DS Review | Points & Punishment

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Developer: Griptonite Games

Publisher: SEGA

Shinobi is obsessed with points, to the extent where I'm seriously wondering whether floating arbitrary numbers were a commonplace sight in feudal Japan. Leap into the air, fling a fan of Kunai and impale a lesser ninja on your razor-sharp katana? Have some points. Parry a massive fireball as you sprint across a rickety bridge? Have some more. Smash your horse headfirst into a tree? You'd better lose some there. The emphasis on points is testament to Griptonite Games' mission statement: to provide the 3DS with a a truly hardcore action platformer to satisfy the self-bettering urges of the more mature gamer. Nintendo's handheld certainly needs more titles like this, but I'm not convinced that Shinobi is the panacea that we've been waiting for.

Shinobi is the 13th title to bear the less-than-illustrious branding of the popular 1987 arcade game, and as such, the formula remains much the same despite the advent of the new millenium. You'll lead a deadly masked ninja through perilous 2D stages, engage in some fast-paced swordplay and die a lot. It's an endearingly nostalgic take on the action platform genre, and one that manages to excel and utterly fail depending on which side of the equation you're looking at.

If you've enjoyed seeing Captain America thrash his enemies on the big screen then you might want to give the tie-in game a go because it's not bad. The combat's great fun and seems to have taken its inspiration from Arkham Asylum, so you can expect to fluidly throw punches and toss your indestructible shield around to your heart's content. The Game Collection are parting with Wii and DS copies of the game for £14.99, which'll save you about £7 on both versions. Thanks to R123SS @ HUKD.

It's only a couple of days to go now until Captain America graces the big screen with his presence and I for one am looking forward to it. The combat in the tie-in game's really good fun and seems to have been inspired by Arkham Asylum, but don't worry there are quieter moments as well when you'll get to explore the environments. The Game Collection are parting with DS copies of the game for £17.49, which'll make you a saving of almost £4.50 on the next best offer coming in from Cool Shop UK.
