Excerpt: Last year’s Ninja Gaiden 3 ( OXM rating: 8.0) left some followers of the action series angrier than an Archfiend. In giving the franchise a mainstream makeover, Tecmo Koei had neutered many of its familiar, expected features.
Pros: + Feels more like a true, + Bursting with content, online and off.
Cons: ? Any way Team Ninja can harness all the carnage into a real-life blood drive? If only…
Conclusion: No Ninja Gaiden game should be easily forgotten. Gamers will soon forget this.
Pros: It can be fun if you really, really want it to be;
Cons: The core gameplay, which was the spine of the series, has been brutally pulled out and violently stomped on to make way for a run of the mill hack'n'slash action adventure, disappointing and often outdated visuals.
Excerpt: Not everyone is going to be accepting of the fact that Ninja Gaiden 3 exists without the assistance of former Team Ninja leader Tomonobu Itagaki. For the longest time, this producer defined what the hardcore ninja experience is supposed to be, and since his hasty departure from Tecmo Koei’s camp,...

Pros: Lots of blood and guts, Can be quite immersive, Lots of longevity
Cons: They still haven't sorted the difficulty, Under-powered weapons, Linear levels
Conclusion: I have hardly finished off what I think is the last soldier wearing a red barret when a rocket explodes next to me. I turn around and sure enough there is one lone straggler on top of a building equipped with a massive rocket launcher.

19 March 2012
Summary: Finishing a Ninja Gaiden game was a sadistic test of prowess. Notoriously unforgiving and unwelcoming, previous iterations were happy to kick you to the floor right at the start and continue pounding away until you gave up crying like a baby, or, after a torrid few weeks, completed them almost out...
Pros: Rejoice: insane, sadistic difficulty given the boot, New lease of life for the combat - feels more attacking and aggressive, Stupid, tittersome (in an ironic sense) story
Cons: Commiserate: insane, sadistic difficulty given the boot, Multiplayer modes feel clunky, Moronic, unfunny (even in an ironic sense) story

The TPS Report
12 February 2008
Conclusion: Compounding this slight resentment surrounding the graphics is the disappointing fact that none of the gorgeous CGI cinematics from the original have been re-rendered for this version. That's right, we're still stuck in 480p territory, all that Blu-Ray space seemingly gone to waste.
