Ninja Gaiden III on Wii U: Well, It Sucks Less.

Kotaku - When Ninja Gaiden III came out, I was none too kind to it. As a long standing fan of the franchise, it just did too many questionable things: QTE's in combat, Long-winded villains, and an uncomfortable scene in which you're forced to murder somebody while he pleads for his life and the welfare of his children. (Ninja Gaiden 3, Wii U)

Nothing they do will save this game

They stacked on some great improvements, but the foundation was always weak.

played it on the PS3, not like 1&2 but still had fun

I guess losing Itagaki really has put the series down. Losing other key members of the developers obviously hasn't helped but it just goes to show you how one man can have such a strong influence on the direction of the game.

The major credit I give the new team is they focus more on the continuation of the original. Something the 360 version of Ninja Gaiden 2 completely forgot.

I felt like the game was playing itself and there was no skill involved. They noobed it up big time.

Well it looks to be everything fans wanted in the first place yet because its on Nintendo its still fails i think its what fans wanted so its a good game period.

and kind of funny right before the launch, sony reviewers are trashing the game, why not at the september show when they had a chance to play it? oh no! the sony reviewer waits till the launch, to say " see wii u does not have a great launch! the wii u version is not better than the 360 and ps3 one.. funny, when cnet rated the game, they gave it an 8 out of ten, they said nothing about frame rate or muddy graphics, and that the game was much improved. so who's right? you both could not have gotten one bad copy and cnet got the good one!

sorry sony reviewer, we wii u fans are buying the game, just because you get the sucky version, and we get the great version, doesn't mean that you whining like a little baby in your review is going to change the wii u fans from getting a great hard core title.. so bye bye you are so boring.. yawn, oh look a rock!

Didn't IGN and Kotaku state that the Wii U version is a poor port of the 360 and ps3 versions?

I'm confused.

Why do you put 'Motorola RAZR i' on the end of every post you make?

Sorry IGN, but the fans speak, go back, and sony, and microsoft fans look at what the fans are saying about ninja gaiden it got an 8.8 from the fans who love the game. I will take my advice from fans, then biased reviewers.

Can you be a bit more clear, because ninja gaiden and ninja gaiden 3 are two very different games. One is a bit of a masterpiece and the other is average at best.

The NG fans dont care for your little personal war or vendetta about consoles .

They just know NG3 had a very weak foundation and isnt interesting by itself ... so of course they'd doubt that adding bonus characters and weapons among other things on top of a bad game is going to revolutionize the title .

Maybe they are wrong , but they have some rather solid reasons to believe so

Have you seen the video? They scraped most of the changes they made and brought back NG2 gameplay. Of course it means its a better game now, but to me it seems a bit lazy to improve NG3 by turning it into NG2.5
