When Ninja Gaiden 3 was released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 earlier this year, I felt it was a pretty good action romp, but there are those who weren't so pleased with what came with its release.
That's more than a bit obvious. What needs to be asked is why this game wasn't the first one offered.
Nintendo wasn't publishing it and helping Team Ninja with the development for one thing. @NYC_Gamer Free DLC? Don't bet on it. Microsoft doesn't even let Valve offer free DLC. Besides, Nintendo aided with the development of this version. Fat chance of it going multiplatform. Maybe a Sigma version, but certainly not a port of this version.
It wasn't a question for Nintendo, it was a question for Team Ninja. Besides, Nintendo didn't help with development they merely paid and said "make it like NG2". What the hell does Nintendo know about making games like NG? They specialize in Super Mario and similar stuff. Real question is this: Why did Team Ninja screw over legions of loyal fans with NG3? Fans of the series like me feel like s*it when they see this happen. And I sure as hell won't be buying WiiU for one game (waiting for real next gen) so thx for shafting your fans Team Ninja! If they had even a shred of decency they would patch original game on PS3 and 360 and make it a decent game.
@ jaosobno The reason it sucked is because Tomonobu Itagaki and his team left the company. The series is now in the hands of some new guy.
I doubt even Razor's Edge will change Ninja Gaiden 3 for the better. It was a solid game, just not Ninja Gaiden. It felt more like solid Ninja Balde 2, rather than being a genere defining Ninja Gaiden 3.
I feel they should offer this as free dlc for all those who bought the game on PS3/360
I already sold it Lol
Overall yes the ng games are amazing but 3 is the only one I couldn't complete out of pure boredom. Nothing changed the whole game, the story sucked, the acting sucked, the weapons sucked and the game had no real progression other than clear this room of 20 people to clear the next room of the same 20 people. Ive beaten ng, ngb, NGS, ng2, ng2s, now working on plus. Every entry I've beaten over 5 times but 3 is just terrible.
I know its best on wii u.. This game pisses me off cuz that dismemberment shouldve been on the original.. I can understand Ayane going on the new one but whatever.. Ill have to sit it out til vita gets sigma 3 plus.. I have a question.. Which rivalry or hatred is stronger, PS3 & nintendo fans or PS3 & 360 fans? Do 360 & PS3 both rival little old nintendo? Im routing for the ninny fans with this system.. I wont buy it til i see more but im staying hopeful that im wrong one day.. I love Zelda & Metroid.. Mario karts n all that crap is for the birds tho
Is not like is a huge improvent over the ps3 & 360 version is pretty much the same game with extra content
"Ninja Gaiden, Bayonetta are outdated", that idiot Hayashi said. He said Ninja Gaiden 3 was what gamers wanted. Then he saw the sales and reviews for NG3. Now he's backtracking and releasing the game it was supposed to be in the first place (or at least, as close as it can be on this shitty new engine). Talk about being inept. Every single game Hayashi has made has been a turd. He even managed to dumb-down PORTS like the Sigmas. Easier, less enemies (that take more damage but barely attack you), removing stages and boss fights, adding tearing and making framerate worse... Hayashi isn't worthy of licking Itagaki's shoes.
No it won't.
