Specs: Everyone, Firebrand Games, Driving
The Bottom Line: Path of the Ninja is formulaic, repetitive, and barely more than a touched-up Game Boy Advance game, but it's not an awful choice if you're a hardcore Naruto fan. Read review

Specs: Everyone, Magic Pockets, Adventure, Simulation - medicine
