Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge Review | Destructoid

Jim Sterling writes, "As it stands, Razor's Edge is a slight improvement of something that needed to be thrown away and started again from scratch. A turd, Team Ninja demonstrates, can indeed be polished -- but it still stinks." (Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, Wii U) 5.5/10

Bring back Itagaki and fire the managment responsible for loosing Itagaki in the first place.

Problem solved!

he11 no cause if he comes back everything would be a xbox exclusive again.

Devil's third is not an exclusive, so I don't think that is necessarily the case. However, wouldn't you rather have an exclusive that is awesome, rather than a multi-platform turd?

It's Jim Sterling. Unless it's Kirby or Call of Duty, almost all of his reviews that I read seem to be outright hateful.

But this game has been getting shitted on from other sites too. So i think this has some truth in it.
PopRocks359  +   1179d ago
What other sites? IGN gave this game a 7.6. Aside from that I heard maybe one smaller website say the game was better but mediocre.

EDIT: I just checked Metacritic and I was right. Only three reviews are out so far, two middles and a positive. So as of right now I don't think suggesting the game is "getting shitted on from other sites" is all that accurate.

Didn't he give Ragnarok Odyssey a 9 like, 2 weeks ago?
PopRocks359  +   1179d ago
I wouldn't know. Didn't read that review. I don't like usually like reading his material since I think he deliberately gives games certain scores for clicks.

For example, he gave Mario Kart 7 a 5/10 for being too much like previous games. Then later on he gave Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 a near perfect score for almost the same reason. This sparked some fire in the comments for both reviews. Since then I really haven't looked at too much of his stuff.

His Jimquisition videos are okay on occasion though.

RO is better than NG 3 and Im a big fan of the first 2 3d games. This one always sucked and now it sucks slightly less, big deal.

If this game sucks compared to the first one that won on the original xbox then they are doding it wrong and going backwards and that deserves any crappy score it gets.

Correction, I meant the old Ninja Gaiden 3, my fault.
DivineAssault  +   1179d ago

Well it's better than the broken 360/PS3 version which scored a 3.0 out of 10 IGN, while the Wii U version scored a 7.6 on IGN! To me that's a tremendous effort and difference on a game that was completely broken. Nobody expected it to get a 10, especially while using the same core mechanics! Plus I don't trust Destructoid, they've been giving too many games great scores that are not great imho Code of Princess being one of those titles.

@ PopRocks359. Bet you wouldn't say that if were any other game. To many people a seven is an instant failure but you are excusing a 5.5? Why? Because it is a Wii U game? It's amazing how gamers will excuse anything that they want to succeed. Now that the first reviewed Wii U game gets a seven SUDDENLY a seven and 5.5 is 'not bad'. So we have started the Wii U excuses early have we? VITA games get sevens but that is a badge of failure that proves how worthless the VITA is. But this is nothing but the fault of the evil reviewer.I am sure you wouldn't be questioning his judgement if it was above an eight

I'm living in a world where people think a seven out of ten is a failure? Just fucking kill me now.
millzy102  +   1179d ago
its because halo 4 got a 7 and halo fans thought it deserves a 10, 7 is still really good just not 'perfect' but no one seems to realise if you personaly think the game is perfect then to you its a 10, I really don't listen to reviews anyway I just like reading them for laught because people say stupid shit. 7 IS NOT FAILURE, under 5 maybe 5-6 good but not brilliant 7-9 very good and 10 is brilliant but it takes a lot for a game to get 10. if people where really hardcore gamers they will play games no mater what score it was if its there style of game because you can't say something is shit until you try it. let's say you took a maths test and got 7 out of 10 questions right would you think your stupid or pretty clever?

I'm not excusing a 5.5 score, nimrod. All I said was that it was a "middle" score. Meaning it was on the middle end of the spectrum. Nice job trying to twist my words. Too bad the only failure here is your reading comprehension.

Also I don't hate the Vita or its games. I'm simply not interested because it's too expensive and most of its library are ports of games I can get on the PS3, which I already own. You tell me why I would ever hate a device that has similar functionality to the Wii U?

7 isn't bad for any system. I've enjoyed games that were rated waaay worse than 7.

Also, this Sterling guy is a bit of a douche when it comes to reviews so it makes sense to ignore him. If he posted above 8, I wouldn't complain, but I would be a bit surprised coming from this guy...

Jesus people play the game for yourself, then decide. Video games like any art form are subjective, just because he didn't like the game, doesn't mean you won't. I don't care if you bash the game, but at least play it. For example, NieR was panned by critics but many people, including myself, enjoyed the game, hell I think it's a classic. I know 95% of people who bash Ninja Gaiden 3 just watched the IGN review and copy pasted it. I'm not saying Ninja Gaiden 3 was amazing, it was okay, nothing compared to the first two, but when people bash a game when they clearly never played it and just base it of a review, that's where I have a problem. Play it for yourself, make your own opinion on the game, don't hide behind a reviewer.

Agree with you , don't judge the game by a review , play it , be good in it then say your opinion about it to give a fair judgement ...

i completed ninja gaiden 3 , i hated it at first because i was comparing it to the first NG which was a masterpiece for me , but after that i realized that comparing it will not give me fun , so i played it as a new ip , i had a little fun then sold it ...

looking at how developers make the sequels these days i really dont care if they made a sequel to NG3 with worst gameplay , i will just search for the good games and support them , developers change too much these days instead of upgrading , not everything should be changed , if you change what made the game great then it's not a sequel , it's a reboot ...

Edit : i only compare between the sequels when the game is bad ...

its true but misleading full hd should mean native but it doesn't unfortunately it means it can be displayed in 1920x1080 upscaled or not. there should be a standard to differentiate between the two but there isn't still a lot of games are 720p native which still isn't bad. lines of pixels don't give true resolution anyway its dpi and depends on screen size (and distance from screen)

No matter what they do to it it's still Ninja Gaiden 3. I wasn't expecting a good Wii U port anyway. It's okay there are other Wii U games to get.
nerdkiller  +   1179d ago
i want a wii u, but i dont need this crap.

if zombiu scores low then ill cry...
