IGN:Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Review

Much has changed since you may have read some unkind things about Ninja Gaiden 3 earlier this year. In fact, it’s not even fair to call the refurbished Razor’s Edge a “director’s cut.” Rather, it’s more like a film that’s been screen-tested, made changes based on lots of negative feedback, and then released in a significantly different form than it was originally shown. Of course, that makes Xbox and PS3 owners akin to screen-testers who paid $60 for the privilege, but that’s another matter. Regardless of whether you’re coming to Razor’s Edge as a Ninja Gaiden neophyte or a series veteran looking for this franchise to redeem itself, you’ve come to the right place. (Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, Wii U) 7.6/10

Went from a 3 to a 7.6. That's pretty damn good...

@ linkfan8800. Come on now. IGN has been giving crap scores to VITA games several times now. If it where a Sony owned site don't you think they should be handing out high scores at least equal to what other sites gave them? Are you sure you are not the one mad because they gave a Wii U game a bad score. Would you have been as outraged if it was COD VITA getting a low score from IGN and other sites weren't? Would it have been a crap site if they gave it the highest score possible?

"IGN has been giving crap scores to VITA games several times now."

Ummm..no. The problem is that people like you think that anything below a 9 is a "crap score". What needs to change is YOUR skewed mentality.

I think 7.6 is pretty good actually. Like shackdaddy said above, it went from a 3 to a 7.6 so it more than doubled its score.

It's pretty damn impressive that the game got such a solid retooling in time for the Wii U launch. As someone who really didn't like Ninja Gaiden 3's first release, I must say that I'm curious to see how Razor's Edge plays.

I really hope they make a sigma version for the PS3..I don't feel like getting a wii u just for one game..it's not worth it.

There ARE other Wii U games. You know that, right? Razor's Edge is hardly the only one that would be at least decent at launch.

Doubled the score...I never thought they could actually save this abomination.

All I want to know is if the game has Nintendo Network/Miiverse trophies/achievements/accompli shments... is that too much to ask? I can't get a straight answer from anyone.
Kane22  +   518d ago
@guitarded nintendo has said today there will be no trophies/achievements/accompli shments for the wii world wide. there leaving it up to the devs to put them in themselves. which mean mostly all games them wont have them.

@
linkfan8800 .I think you are just a very angry person. Looking at all the other scores it has gotten so far from other sites it actually looks like IGN is actually being generous. People thought that because it was on the Wii U it would automatically be a better game.But ports come out bad all the time.I think you are just being over sensitive

Did they hate the Ninja Gaidens before this one. So why should they show any type of hatred. I don't remember IGN showing any particular hatred towards Ninja Gaiden before this one. So why should you suddenly think that they are showing any bias towards this one? You thought the new Ninja Gaiden would do a whole lot better because it was on the Wii but it wasn't.Why are you people trying so hard to defend it?
lol muddy textures!
