Summary: The Short Graphic :1/10 - Graphics are low poly, outfits look terrible, in cutscenes gear goes from low poly to high and back and forth Controls 2/10 - Tugboats handle better. there is some nasty input lag and awkward moments when your character refuses to attack. It's like it is trying to get between two different animations and decides to do neither.
Summary: As you will be aware this game marks a number of significant changes in the series for the worse. Here's whats wrong with it... Firstly the beautiful fluidity of the gameplay of NG1 & NG2 has been changed for the worse so that often whilst hacking down enemies, slow motion sequences will occur and the player will be given QTE prompts to finish an enemy off.
Summary: Don't play this game unless you are being paid to do so, and even then it better be good money. Nothing here but monotonous button-mashing. A great contribution to my theory that most game developers just don't give a damn anymore.
Summary: First off, I'm a huge Ninja Gaiden fan since Itagaki and Team Ninja resurrected the series for modern gaming. I have not only Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden 2 but Ninja Gaiden Black along with Sigma 1 and Sigma 2. I'm also someone who is a huge enthusiast for this gaming subgenrea. I have Devil May Cry 1-4, Bayonetta, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, God of War 1-3, Ninja Blade, Dante's Inferno and a host of others.
Summary: This game is garbage at best. No wonder it got reviews such as 3/10 in IGN. 1. The game combat is extremely unfair. You have to fight dozens and dozens of enemies at once without regaining any health in the process, so if you get killed, you're screwed. You will only get health once you finish the fight. 2. Not very tactical. All you do is smash the buttons to fight the enemies over and over again, there's nothing tactical about this game, at all.
Summary: I have been a hardcore NG fan since the nes days. This game is a slap in the face to any fan of the series. QTE events , lethargic AI , etc etc. I hope you all fall on your swords. This game is an abominiation of an action game. God of War has other traits that allow them to get by with these shortcuts , NG is all about impossibility and gore. This game has neither. Man up , pull this game from sale , and FIX IT. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IN ITS CURRENT FORM.
Summary: So this is Yosuke Hayashi's first full Ninja gaiden game attempt and I think I could have done a better job myself. It seems that he took everything fans loved about the series and took all of it away, and replaced it with some really bad designs but also kept the things that I personally hated about the series in general. I'll try and break this down. Gameplay: with only a few combos and a bow and a sword, Hayashi took out all of the variety of the gameplay.
