Summary: The first two Ninja Gaiden games were masterfully developed and as difficult as they could be, the fun factor was still there... long story short they were easily top-tier in their respective genre. There's obviously a drastic change that sets the first two installments apart from the third. Just about everything has been changed and not for the better.
Summary: Within the first few minutes of gameplay I could tell this wasn't up to par with past Ninja Gaiden Titles. I enjoyed all of the others but this one left out something to be desired. I immediately returned the game without giving it a second chance.
Summary: X Y X X X Y is just about the only combo you will need to beat this. There is no expanded tutorial on combos or even a combo list to help make combat more interesting. Your ranged weapons consist of a bow... and nothing else. One Ninpu (magic) that charges with damage dealt to enemies that kills everything in the area.
Summary: I don't even know where to start on this game, it's no where as fun as ng2, it lags in key parts of the game(especially in the middle of a blade fight), and your blocking and maneuvering are way to slow. I don't know what they where thinking when they made this but I wish they would have keep the old style of ng now because this one just isn't a ninja gaiden game, it's just bad.
Summary: I bought this game because i really liked NG2. First, they turned it into a button masher that is hard to follow witht the action. Theres not combo counter. Camera angles are poor. Story doesnt make sense and doesnt answer its own questions. Only the one sword and a bow and no ability to upgrade. NG 2 was awesome with all the weapons and differnt combos and easy to follow action.
