The original Ninja Gaiden 3 was abysmal, by virtue of Team Ninja inexplicably removing all the features that had made the Ninja Gaiden series one of the pillars of action gaming. These included multiple weapons, an upgrade system, brutal dismemberment and a notoriously challenging difficulty level. As a longtime fan of the series since the original Ninja Gaiden on the Xbox, who had completed all the games up to Ninja Gaiden 3 on the Master Ninja difficulty, I was outraged that one of my all-time favourite gaming franchises had been massacred in such a manifest way in order to allegedly make the series more "accessible". Thankfully the cumulative voices of other outraged fans and myself were heard loud and clear at Team Ninja, and the result is the "Razor's Edge" edition of Ninja Gaiden 3 on the Wii U which reinstates all the core mechanics that had made Ninja Gaiden great in the past. It follows that Razor's Edge is also great, and without a doubt one of the best games on the Wii U at the moment, but sadly nevertheless falls short of the standard set by Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2. I will elucidate in more detail why Razor's Edge is great and why it nonetheless has shortcomings relative to previous titles below.

What Team Ninja have essentially done with Razor's Edge is replace Ninja Gaiden 3's simplified combat system with the excellent and nuanced combat system from Ninja Gaiden 2. The result is inevitably a double-edged sword. Anyone who has ever played Ninja Gaiden 2 (and if you haven't, you really should) is well aware of how visceral, violent and responsive the combat in that game feels.

This is a upgraded version of Ninja Gaiden 3, with more weapons, levels, and revamped, better gameplay. On top of the original game, you now have the ability to chop up limbs, heads, torsos, which results in buckets of blood being splashed all over the place, the amount of blood in this game is more than any of the previous Ninja Gaiden games, it's everywhere.

New weapons and nimpo magic, hidden skulls that open challenges, and scarabs to collect. And a new system where you buy upgradeded moves, costumes and other things for points you collect as you play the game. On top of the orginal levels from the PS3/360 versions you get 2 new levels for a new female character Ayane. And if your Wii U is online, you can download 2 more female characters to play the game , that come in the latest patch for the game.

Apart from the single player campaign which will last about 8 hours on normal, more on harder difficulty, you get ninja trials, which on Wii U is a whole bunch of stages where you face waves of enemies, their is at least 30, their may be more on Wii U. I don't know as I can't unlock them yet as they are pretty hard. You can also play co op online, but haven't tried it yet, but it's not co op campaign as far as I know.

The difficulty of this game has been ramped up from the PS3/360 versions even on normal you will die a lot, their is a easier mode but I haven't tried it,t here is also a few extra hard modes to unlock.

Graphically this game is very smooth most of the time, and looks great with all the blood and limbs flying all over the place. It looks a little rough around the edges due to lack of anti aliasing, but you won't notice it most of the time.

I really enjoyed Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword (Nintendo DS) and I thought I would give this game a shot, when I saw a copy going cheap and I'm glad I did. The original Ninja Gaiden 3 on the PS3 and 360 was heavily criticised, for not being as good as the first two games. I'm happy to say that Team Ninja listened and fixed most of these short comings for the superior Wii U version. The boss fights are epic and Ryu has a fantastic selection of moves with cool combo's. The amount of blood which goes spraying everywehre as you deafeat your enemies, makes you feel a true hard as nails ninja.
The graphics are good, but the Wii U is capable of producing much better. I quite enjoyed the storyline and it was fun controlling the lovely looking female ninja's. My main criticism with Ninja Gaiden 3 is the enemies aren't as varied as the Bayonetta 2 - Special Edition (Nintendo Wii U) games and the set pieces aren't as epic as well.
I've had a couple of enjoyable battles online, which is easier to find people in the evening at weekends. Overall this is a enjoyable action game that could of benifitted from some simple puzzle solving, which would have helped mixed things up a bit with the fairly repetitive gameplay. If you can pick a copy cheap like myself, then you will have fun being a super tough ninja for sure.

If you loved NG1 or 2 you will love this, its much like NG2 now (unlike the original NG3), so far there have been no cheap enemies who spam incendiary shruikens that you cannot avoid. (And i have been playing on hard from the get go). The story is ok, was never strong in NG series but that isn't the point, the point is the action and i love it.. There are so many combos I can not keep count of them, even scrolling through the list for one weapon is like holy hell.... takes forever to reach the bottom.

*Everything good that was about NG2 is improved, better and more fun and challenging.
*Everything NG3 was supposed to be, makes NG3 feel like a beta version.
*Cheap enemies present in NG2 and 1 do not exist, rocket launcher spammers die in 1 hit and less of them.

*No vigoorian flails, nunchucks, giant sword or tonfa's.
*Frame rate drops = bullet time mode/slow down because of no frame skip... (although somewhat helpful if you're in a bad situation xD)
*Dismemberments are a bit hard to see (obliteration kills) nevertheless very awesome to perform.
*Wish there were more perks
*Needs alternate weapons for ayane, although it is fine to be honest.
*Certain fiend-type mobs have way too much health and require ultimate technique spamming.
*No DLC to add anything like that :(

Final note: Although con's list is longer, pro's outweigh it, great addition to the NG series.
