3.0 out of 5 stars It is OK..sort of..I suppose.... 23 Mar 2012
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I got the game on Wednesday and have completed 80% of the SP and played about 8 hours in total - I feel this is enough to review the game though all of my comments refer to the SP and not the co-op or the MP.

I am a little tortured as I am a fan of NG1 and 2 and don't want to be a moaning fanboy crying over a franchise he feels he owns and no one has the right to meddle with it. I have tried and tried to like NG3 (and I will keep on trying) and I am conscious that I am a fan of NG1 and 2 and that 3 moves far away from the formula of those games - I think that the reasons I don't like this game are less to do with these changes and more to do with the fundamentals of a decent fighter.

Comparing it to NG 1 and 2 it is a pail shadow of these games and I can quite understand why places like IGN and other have had scathing reactions. Where NG was tough there was always a reason for your death involving your own failure, this meant that trying again was always worth while - for me NG 1 and 2 compare to Demons and Dark Souls in this respect.

I am playing NG3 on hard (the hardest mode open from a fresh start) because of the complaints that it is too easy on normal. It is not easy - I have died a lot however for all the wrong reasons. Blocking is often pointless as most groups of enemies have at least three with an unblockable attack that comes with no warning. Enemies too often just respawn as you kill them meaning that it is pointless to plan ahead; it is a case of fight until the cutscene. There are no significant moves for clearing space and isolating enemies (flying swallow has effectively gone!!) but it does not matter because it is just as likely they will respawn behind your back anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 14 Dec 2012
By Kradoc
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
Well, it's a new Ninja Gaiden, you still have a fun gameplay but it misses some really important features like choosing different weapons like in the previous Ninja Gaiden
Your weapon is always the same and you can't enhance Ryu Hayabusa I really miss that.
The story is not so bad
The graphic design is pretty good and similar to DOA5

2.0 out of 5 stars Beg Itagaki to come back!! 28 Mar 2012
By ABZ
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
S T O R Y

Ryu Hayabusa is called back into action by the Japanese MoD. A renegade terrorist group has infiltrated London and demands that the dragon ninja must travel to the capital city. Ryu encounters a masked enemy who works on the behalf of a powerful syndicate known as the Lords of Alchemy, an evil organisation looking to purify the world and create a new era of global dominance. The masked figure places an evil curse upon Ryu called the `grip of murder', which also absorbs the Dragon Sword into Ryu's right arm. The ninja must travel the world in order to defeat his foes and rid himself of the powerful curse.

The narrative poses a little intrigue to begin with, but from there on it takes a serious nosedive. Team Ninja wanted to humanise Ryu and make him seem like less of a killing machine. Sadly, the pay off isn't successful and we don't really get to learn anymore about this super ninja. There are some touching moments when Ryu returns to his village, but those are the only redeeming factors. The dialogue is extremely cheesy and doesn't help when providing a purpose to the story. I didn't care for any of the characters and found it just as difficult to keep track of the story.

G R A P H I C S & S O U N D

Graphically, much hasn't changed since NG Sigma 2. There is nothing here that will really stick out and this can bring further scrutiny with regards to the inconsistency of the art design. Ryu's character model is the star of the show, it looks better than ever and the detail of his cursed arm is extraordinary. The female characters seem to have their sexually charged attributes toned down and not so prominent this time.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Ninja With No Soul 24 Mar 2014
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
With the expense of making modern games it must be hard producing a sequel to a well-loved, but not bestselling series. ‘Ninja Gaiden’ is a cult favourite; its ultra-hard gameplay rewards those that invest the time and effort to develop their skills. However, many modern gamers just don’t like this; kill them a couple of times and they are as likely to switch off the game in frustration, never to return, as they are to relish the challenge. Namco Bandai, stuck between a rock and a hard place, decided to ignore the hard place and make ‘Ninja Gaiden 3’ the easiest and most ‘accessible’ in the series so far.

Ryu returns and this time he visits cities such as London to lop off the limbs of other ninjas and also mutant creatures. His arm is infected with a mutation that harms him, but also imbues him with incredible powers. The game is a third person action title that sees you control Ryu in what feels like a series of closed arenas as you clear them of the enemy. The game is grisly to the extreme, hardened gamers may not notice, but if your partner walks in they may just ask what on Earth you are playing. It deserves its 18 certificate and then some.

The ‘Ninja Gaiden’ games have always prided themselves on their combat and it is a shame then that this version is weaker than previous outings. The option to play the game in an easier mode is probably the cause as the game is designed to cater for a more casual player; therefore it is slightly more basic. I can forgive this as the combat is still fun, but basic level design I cannot. The levels look good, but are incredibly bland. You just walk from place to place and take out swarms of enemies and it soon grows a little tiresome. The series may have been extremely difficult at times in the past, but it felt like it had heart. By ‘Ninja Gaiden 3’ this heart has been ripped out in a Ryu-esque special move and leaves a dull experience.
