Ninja Gaiden 3
This game was soooo badd the graphics are not good as ninja gaiden 2 and there is only 2 weopons instead of 20 and nobody plays multiplayer online!!!!!!
An incredible franchise trashed...
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. The combos practically perform themselves, the game-play is a grinding chore amplified by the boring and unbelievable story. In the category of sequel failures, Ninja Gaiden 3 has to be the shiniest example.
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. Not recommended
I tried this game out because I was new to the series and wanted a quick blockbuster play. I enjoyed this game, because I am not a fan. It was the first ninja gaiden I ever played. I knew the game was repetitive but the shock value and look are very pretty. The game was still lots of fun. Though the voice acting was pretty bad. Graphics are a tad dated but still plays good
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. You do not get to upgrade your weapon, you do not get items, and you only really have to worry about surviving until the end of the current fight, when some health is restored to you (all health is restored if you die and try again). The linear level design is even more claustrophobic with no collectibles to be found, which actually discourages exploration at all. Between the lack of customization, the absurdly repetitive gameplay, over used quick time events, and barely there story, this game is a chore to finish. I've played video games for the better half of my life, and this is one of the worst experiences I've ever had as a gamer. Also, for anyone with the notion to try this game on HARD mode for the gamescore, it does NOT unlock the achievements for beating the game on Normal or Easy at the same time. The first Ninja Gaiden really made me step up my game. While Ninja Gaiden 2 wasn't as ground breaking, it did have a number of enjoyable aspects about it. The only enjoyable portion of this game was a portion where you get to replay two small segments from the previous installments. Save yourself the headache, the hassle, and the money by replaying (or buying) Ninja Giaden 2.
It's Really Not THAT Bad...
Ninja Gaiden 3 is not the sequel we all hoped it would be, but the criticism it has gotten, is unwarranted; the game is average to decent.
It mistakenly dumbs itself down to appeal to more casual gamers, so it's no longer hard like the other Ninja Gaiden games are, but it still plays fairly well. Combat doesn't feel button-mashy, you can still pull off smooth combos, and string together attacks for huge killing sprees.
The blood and gore has also been toned down, but it still feels brutal at times. The story tries to include elements of morality and decision making which may seem bad, but are actually intriguing.
It is a realistic game and was kinda touching
Although this game would've been excellent with more weapons customization and various weapon choices and at least 2 more new Ninpos, Ninja Gaiden 3 is truly unique.This game is different from the rest of the previous two games because this one is more realistic. That's why Ryu only has one sword. Imagine him with 10 weapons under that tight suit!! At least the Team Ninja sent two other weapons free of charge to download. Ryu and the other characters acted accordingly with in various events, the voice acting was very good and the SLOW MO was amazing!!!!! If Ryu's fast attack action mid air moves were in fast motion, I would've wished that I could've made it slower! The last few levels of the game were pumping too. I think the plot of the game has a meaning. I want to let other people think about this and find out its meaning. It is tough.
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!!!!!!!!
Dont believe the bad reviews
It amazes me that all the so called fans are raging on how it wasnt challenging enough. isnt the point to have fun. try a different difficulty. i played 2 and boy i wouldnt touch that game again but 3 i would play again and again amazing story, amazing gameplay, and above all i had fun. if you want a fun game get this game.
Just like all games it has its ups and downs...i wouldve loved to see all the body parts ripping apart like in ninja gaiden 2 and i wouldved also loved it if there was more nimpo moves, weapons, projectile weapons, boss fights and levels what also sucked is that its to short i passed it in 2 days..but the story is great gameplay is good and i love the graphics
