It was notable for the fact that it was the first game in the series to be released since former director Tomonobu Itagaki left Team Ninja 4 years ago. - and for a while, it seemed like he took all the talent with him. In short, Ninja Gaiden 3 was not a good game. Refreshingly, it looks like Team Ninja has managed to take the criticisms of the original title to heart and, in doing so, they've turned a poor game into one of the better titles in the Wii U’s launch catalogue."
