Pitting Mini Ninjas DS Version Against the Xbox 360 Version: Who Will Win?

Mini Ninjas DS vs Xbox 360 Smackdown: Which Is Better?

You already know about my addiction to Mini Ninjas, which I played on the Xbox 360 at this year's E3, but did you know that this game also came out on other platforms? I haven't tested out the Wii or PS3 editions, but I have been able to get my hands on both the Xbox 360 and DS versions to test and play.

As you may know, not all games are created equal on all platforms.

Everything I love about the Xbox 360 version of Mini Ninjas — the painfully cute graphics, the music, and the easy and intuitive control system — is missing on the DS version. It's a given that the graphics on the DS will never match up to that of the Xbox, but honestly, this is a major part of what gives Mini Ninjas its charm. Even the music of the Xbox version (a nice and calming soundtrack) gets ramped up to a beat-driven tune in the DS version. I'm not sure why this particular change was made, but I'm not sure I like it.

Overall, the Xbox version of Mini Ninjas is superior in nearly every way (well you gotta give some credit to the DS here — at least you can take it with you on the road), but if I were investing and had a choice, I'd go for the Xbox version here.
