2.0 out of 5 stars I really want to like it, but... 31 Mar 2012
By scg06
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
...it just doesn't feel like Ninja Gaiden.

This game is a huge departure from previous Ninja Gaiden titles. The entire combat system has been dumbed down and quickly becomes repeditive and boring.
You no longer tactically dismember your enemies with an assortment of exotic weapons and epic combos. You are now expected to button bash your way through fights with a single non-upgradable sword and not much more. They've even started on screen button prompts to kill enemies.
Nothing is less satisfying than a 'press Y to kill this enemy' prompt instead of the sense of accomplishment you get from hacking and slicing your way through the battles of Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2. It seems a bit like you're watching the action rather than taking part (although on the plus side the game does look great).

I'm a huge fan of Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2. They're a couple of my favorite games but this new title is such a departure it feels like a totally different series.

I really tried to like this game. I played right through on 'hard' hoping for a bit of a challenge but was finished it within a day. Instead of smarter, tougher enemies, the game just throws a few more enemies at you which you can easily button bash your way through.

I suppose the game could be enjoyable to a newcomer to the series but if you have played and enjoyed the others, probably avoid this one! Maybe rent it out rather than buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing to say the least 26 Mar 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me begin by saying that I am a huge fan of the Ninja Gaiden franchise, so much so that I consider the series one of my favourites. So understandably I was quite excited when Ninja Gaiden 3 was announced. And now that's it's here I have to unfortunatly say, it was not worth the wait. From start to finish everything about the game feels wrong, and the aesthetics (or feel if you wish) that the first two games had just isn't there any more. This may be due to the fact that practically every single thing that made the previous two games great has been taken out, and in replace is some truely god awful voice acting, gameplay that gets repeatitive very quick and a story that's weak at best. Allow me to just list the negatives since there's so many of them. First of all, the only weapons you get is a sword and a bow, and that's it throughout the entire game! Two weapons! One of the best things I enjoyed about the first two was the variety of weapons, but that's no longer the case in this one. Speaking of weapons, you can no longer upgrade them either, and you don't get any yellow, blue or red essence from killing enemies any more. This is because there's no need for essence because you can no longer buy anything, for all the Murumasa shops have gone, along with all health items, ninpo items and rebirth talismans. There is also no chests of any kind throughout the game and no collectibles (no golden scarabs or crystal skulls) You get the point. Anyway, the next bad thing. Ninpo has been altered for the worst, because you are now required to kill enemies to build up a bar, and only when the bar is full can you use it. (and dare I also mention that there's only one kind of ninpo) Anyway, moving onto the gameplay. While the fighting is good and fun at first, it does get repeatitive very quickly. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Lame 4 Oct 2012
By Nick D
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
As you will be aware this game marks a number of significant changes in the series for the worse. Here's whats wrong with it...

Firstly the beautiful fluidity of the gameplay of NG1 & NG2 has been changed for the worse so that often whilst hacking down enemies, slow motion sequences will occur and the player will be given QTE prompts to finish an enemy off. This change in gameplay is much less satisfying than in the first two games making the experience feel a bit on-rails and classic moves such as the Flying Swallow have been removed. Boss encounters also suffer from QTE heavy gameplay.

2) No Muramasa shops appear in the game meaning all weapons and power ups except for the dragon sword and a bow have been removed and we now only have one type of ninpo at our disposal. This also means enemies no longer release different types of energy when they die, some previously being shop currency, as their is no need for it and the players ninpo and health bar refills after every small battle, leading onto another one of the main problems...
3) This game is way too easy. Ninja Gaiden games have always previously been some of the hardest games available, that's what made them so great, but this entry is very much Ninja Gaiden-lite.
4) All the dismemberment and decapitations of NG2 have been removed. Yet another illogical regression for the series. Now all that happens when you strike someone is that blood sprays and they die. When you hit someone with a sword you should be carving them into pieces and chopping bits off. If nothing gets sliced off you may as well be hitting them with a stick. This aspect is made more bizarre by the fact an emphasis is often put of slicing through enemies via QTE sections where afterwords they remain whole.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 3 July 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
After the success of Ninja Gaiden and Black, Ninja Gaiden 2 seemed to take a new direction for the franchise. More Weapons, spectacular urban locals and much greater opponent numbers. While this worked, it lost a great deal of the action adventure of the original. On that note, Ninja Gaiden 3 was a horrible disappointment!

Ninja Gaiden 3 was short, about 6 hours of gameplay on normal difficulty, verses the usual 30 or 40. The story was week, although the cinematics and acting were ok. Game play was boring, just fights with an overwhelming number of opponents, which were all too easily dispatched. Very little action reaction and much more combo play, made the fights easy, predictable and boring. Around every corner are another 50 to 100 enemies waiting for you, which take longer than is fun to cut down, but still offer little to no challenge.

The Multiplayer is fun and much awaited, but does not excuse the lack in the single player department.

All in all......a real disappointment. What happened Team Ninja?
