Summary: I can't believe that there are so many positive reviews for this game. This game already broke 3 controllers because of the defensive dynamics of the combat. Continuous sliding and jumping. Whatever happened to stand your ground and strike when the opportunity presents itself. You also have a life gauge that can't be refilled unless you have ninpo. You also have ninpo that can't be refilled unless you strike continuously without getting hurt.
Worst Ninja Gaiden for vets but ok for new players
23 October 2013
Summary: This review only touches on the specific topics only a veteran of the series will recognize and really care about. Combat is a C: Improved over NJ3. They overhauled it due to complaints (Flying swallow returns and weapons) but it's still more in the style of Dynasty Warriors. There is a bit of strategic element but it's pretty much out the window.
Summary: Talk about a disappointment... It saddens me to admit this but this game is horrendously unbalanced, and straight up unfair to the point that its not enjoyable at all. I loved and have beaten every ninja gaiden before this, one of my favorite action game series of all time. I love action games! Ive played and beaten metal gear rising, vanquish, dmc, bayonetta (on climax mode!)and up to this point ninja gaiden.
Summary: This does not deserve any 1 star reviews (think people- "Big Rig Racing" Is 1 star quality) This does get a 2 star rating from me. Here's why The Pros: - A fairly accurate representation of American Football & The NFL. - Good Soundtrack - Player equipment is varied (aka; More realistic) from PC/PS2 Versions - Graphics are better than PS2 & PC Version - I prefer the control scheme on the PS3 over the other versions.
Summary: I will buy this game every year because it's the only one on the market since the corporate scandal of EA buying the exclusive rights to NFL. They did that because they could not make a game that had the play of 2K NFL. I don't know anyone that played both and thought the gameplay was better on Madden! I have played in Madden tournaments and will always be a huge fan, but I'm no sheep. I know oatmeal when being fed it.
Summary: I love Madden, well in better terms, I'm obsessed with it. I've been playing Madden for over ten years, starting with the PS1 and right on through until PS2! This new PS3 version stinks!!! The graphics were amazing, the gameplay was garbage. The players moved stiffly and the passing wasn't smooth.
Summary: I have to boo this latest installment of madden 08. its better than 07 only in the gameplay aspect. The weapons option is a big improvment to the feel of the game but thats it. graphics are terrible ( i own the ps3 version) and the controls are just as bad. the game as a overall whole just feels different. Plus the fact that there is no type of help in the game as far as controls. The framerate issue really pisses me off too.
