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: 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.
Summary: It was a nice gesture that Team Ninja recognized that Ninja Gaiden 3 was terrible and long-time fans were severely disappointed and wanted to fix this. Unfortunately, the game still has crippling flaws. The storyline is complete garbage. Ninja Gaiden's never had a good storyline, but at least previous games kept the story minimal and it served as exposition.
Summary: They took everything that was great about the Ninja Gaiden series and took it out. The game play is very repetitive and there is nothing unique or great about this game at all. Definitely would not recommend this game.
Summary: What can I say, this game feels like Dynasty Warriors, which is not a good thing. Is just a repetitive bottom mashing game, a shame to the series. It shows that Tomonobu Itagaki is no longer leading Team Ninja. Do yourself a favor and get something better.
Summary: I am a long time fan of this series. I got Ninja Gaiden back in 2004, then when the Hurricane Pack add-ons came out I participated in the Worldwide tournment and placed in the Top 40 and won a very rare Ninja Gaiden T-shirt (that I wear rarely but proudly to this day). I purchased Ninja Gaiden: Black in the waning days of the xbox. I got Ninja Gaiden:Sigma when it came out for PS3 (no controller rumble still bothers me to this very day).
Summary: So a brief history. Years ago I bought the first NG for xBox, played it a couple of times, and put it away because I couldn't get past the first level, it was so challenging. Then about a year later I went back and tried it..and beat it, and was hooked ever since. NG2, and the Sigma PS3 games...I completed them all. So when NG3 was announced, I looked forward to it with as much anticipation as Mass Effect 3 (which is a story for another day!).
Summary: you know, I love NG sence the NES sistem, and then they came out for XBOX I was like soooo happy, it was my favorite game along with Halo CE, it was hard, but beautiful, it was fun and long, and has all the vaults and skulls and all those things, along with a great story line... the the second NG came along and it gas even better, they put down a bet on the difficulty level, but the game has so much stuff to get and explore, weapons, characters, vaults, upgrades etc, so...
