Ninja Gaiden 3
Team ninnja - itegaki = mediocre ninja gaiden game
If you are a hardcore fan of ninja gaiden like i am, please don't buy this game, maybe team ninja will get the hint and hire itegaki again. that all i have to say, i played it, but most of the game was too painful to mention lol, please don't buy this. and who ever said this game was going to be good clearly has bad taste =P
A few tweaks but at it's core is still bloody fun
(I've read multiple reviews as well as purchased the game, and beat NGB and NG2)
Let me start things off by saying first of all, it appears that most of the reviews were unfairly low. Sure, there were some changes to the game (Taking out things like upgradable weapons, and the currency and more than 1 ninpo) but this still remains and feels like a Ninja Gaiden game. It's still a lot of fun slashing bad guys and the combat is so fast and bloody I didn't even notice no limbs were flying off. The difficulty complaint is invalid due to the fact that the game IS challenging if you choose "hard" and there's also a DLC where 1 hit from an enemy will take down HALF of your health bar. Also, there's a FREE DLC which gives you the claws and scythe, so there's not just one weapon like many people believe. At least rent it for yourself if you really trust the reviews of IGN and other sites, but you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not giving it a try for yourself. You must form your own opinion on this before deciding how you feel about it yourself. I think many people will be missing out on this one because they trust the opinions of someone else who's just bashing the game because of the things they've changed for the worse instead of the better.
I dont like the reviews
I have read all of the reviews from everbody else and i am dissapointed with them, i like this game and others like it, i dont care what people say i have played the first Ninja Gaiden and the NES, and i liked all of the ones that came after this one. People say things about team ninja losing profits, they dont know that my word of this game is true, if you like this game, you deserve a big thumbs up and a nice soda and some chips and dip and we can have a party, all that i can say is that IF U LIKE THIS GAME, YOU WILL BE THE COOLEST PERSON ALIVE!!! i have been wanting to play this game i ahve played it at my friends and i ahve beat it, iam a hardcore gamer and i am going to love this game, and for the people who say that we have bad taste, no, it is YOU who HAS BAD TASTE, and dont return it play all you want, i am keeping it till my xbox 360 breaks and that is not going to be soon
OK, so I was really excited for this game. I have played both the first one and NG2 which were awesome. I was really disappointed in this game. First off a lot of stuff was taken out, for example, the yellow,blue,and red orbs that would drop off enemies are gone. The shop is gone as well, so no upgrading your weapons, oh wait you only get 2 weapons the whole game(bow and sword). Health has changed as well, since the shop is gone healing items are gone, along with Life of the Gods and Life of the 1000 Gods. Magic is now a bar and has to be filled up and then you can use it which will heal you as well. You still have the ultimate technique which is cool. I feel like the difficulty is a lot weaker. That is my 2 cents.
I've always been a hardcore Ninja Gaiden fan! While others was playing God Of War I was always playing Ninja Gaiden! It's fun and it's challenging. I would have to say that the reviews for this game were just others opinions. I won't bash them for horrible reviews but I will say this...PLAY IT FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!! The game is based around sword fighting. So therefore there were not other weapons to choose from at first but then you got a few through DLC. The online mode is fun as long as you can get others to play with you. I'd recommend that you get a few friends and just ride out on it. I can't lie...I was VERY upset when I heard that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is getting all the extra stuff like the weapons and the flying swallow is back and eventually I will trade my 360 for a Wii U as long as games that I want come out for it. BUT all in all if you're a Ninja Gaiden fan...it plays like....NINJA GAIDEN!!!!!!!!
Its been changed
I have always loved the Ninja Gaiden games, especially the difficulty of them. The reason I give this game the rating i did is because they have completely changed the game, for one the game has become alot easier to beat, the took out all the different weapons and limited the combos for what weapons you get. The bow and arrow is now an auto lock weapon. And there is alot of button mashing, for example you have to hold left and right trigger and push the B button as quick as you can to open a door. and your watching the cinematic videos other than actually playing the game. They changed the whole meaning of the game.
Finally!! A Release Date
Finally we have a release date, not sure if it's correct since 3/1/12 falls on a Thursday. O well any date is better than none, at least the release will be somewhere in that time frame. Just ready 2 slap NG3 in my 360!! Now lets just get a new Prince of Persia game & I'll be satisfied!!
Good, not great
Ninja Gaiden 3 has taken some hits from critics due to less weapons, no amputations, less fiends (from what I've seen so far), and a camera that reminds you of the first Ninja Gaiden game (that didn't bother me). For me, I've enjoyed myself. The difficulty is a little tone down than it was from the previous two games, but it still exists. And if you're not careful you will die. The wall climb is awkward at first, but fun when you can throw daggers at enemies and see them fall. The fights are cool and not as monotonous as IGN says.
Like Ancient Ship of Doom from the original NES trilogy, this game will not blow you away like the boss fights from 2 or the near impossible difficulty of 1, but it's still fun. I say give it a try. You may be surprised.
I think this game is amazing for a couple of reasons: 1. it has a very good multiplayer 2. Story mode actually makes sense 3.free dlc There is only one bad part about this game and that is you can only use one type of weopen for the whole game if you don't have live.
great game. alot different from ng2
i must say this game is pretty awesome and the online play is interesting. it is very different from ng2 but i still like it.
