Summary: Mediocore game at best, which is sad since the other enteries in this series have been so much better. My major complaint is the terrible camera angles.. The action is very fast paved and the camera often pans out or covers your character and you can't see what's going on. The gameplay is also just very uninspired and becomes a chore after awhile. Finally, don't go looking for a meaningful storyline, as it's non-existent .
Summary: Got my game and the first thing I noticed was that Hayabusa's sword was snapped off at the hilt. Which was disappointing but I figured I could return it, however when I had to wrestle Hayabusa out of the plastic I dropped him and his scarf broke off, not able to return it at this point. CD with the music is very cool, but all of the teeth that hold the CD in place we're broken of. Thankfully it was not scratched but still rather disappointing.
Summary: I love all the ninja gaiden games that they have made, I recently got ninja gaiden black for 360 and it is amazing! ninja gaiden 2 was so fun and it was great seeing ninja gaiden 3 in better graphics but was disappointed in the lack of weapons but THIS one makes up for it! Ninja Gaiden 3 wasn't bad in my opinion, but it could have been better with body dismemberment and karma as currency and muramasa to buy all the things we loved from the first two.
Summary: I do not like this game as much as I liked the other Ninja Gaidens This game has so much lag in the controls and the timing of the actions (very uncharacteristic of ninja gaiden.... as his previous games all of the controls were near perfect and) All of the enemies are very cheap and over powered to the point of ridiculousness (Ninja gaiden is known for its high gameplay difficulty, but previous titles is more about skill level and any mistakes are your own fault.....
Summary: Like most console games, NG has become a movie that the player occasionally takes part in. The amazing myriad variety of actions and weapons and items you could use in 1 and 2 are gone, and this is more of a popcorn fest than interactive program.
Huge changes to the original made this version awesome
30 October 2013
Summary: This is the Ninja Gaiden we know and love; fast and fluid combat, severed limbs, pointless and nonsensical plot, and awesome weapons and combos. I played the original Ninja Gaiden 3 and promptly put the controller in disappointment of the downgraded combat. The developers redeemed themselves with this version.
