| To me, Revenge of Shinobi was excellent because it brought NEW life to the Shinobi series and became the blueprint for further Shinobis (if that's even a word). |
If it weren't for Revenge, we would have never seen the great gameplay additions such as double jumping and multiple shruiken throws. As well, the sense of style that Revenge has would not be seen in Shinobi 3, Legions, or the 128-bit versions.
And of course, the tracks on Revenge are outrageous--from the great 1st level music (The Shinobi) to Chinatown to one of my personal all time favorite game musics--Sunset Blvd.
But for playability, I'd have to pick Shinobi 3. Revenge was good (I don't think it's as impossible as the last guy said) but could have used some gameplay improvements and Shadow Dancer was more in line with the arcade versions of Shinobi.
