Gamers XTREME - Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Review (PS3/360): “The Quintessential NG3 Experience”

Glacier928: "Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is proof that the new Team Ninja has what it takes to develop further installments in the franchise. I can’t stress enough that Razor’s Edge is the quintessential version of Ninja Gaiden 3 that should not be missed by any NG fan. If you already own the Wii U version, there’s no reason to pick this up again on the PS3/360 (even if there are some extra costumes). However, if you held off for Razor’s Edge to come to the PS3/360, then don’t pass this up at all. With one of the best combat systems ever designed, a coherent story, devilish difficulty, tons of extra content, replay value, a truly exceptional soundtrack, and a raw intensity that little to no games can match, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is a must-own for any NG and/or hack-and-slash fan. The game’s tagline may be 'Violence Reborn', but I say it’s 'Ninja Gaiden Reborn'." (Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

Its strange how I am seeing overwhelmingly higher review scores for the PS3/360 release of this than I saw for the Wii U even though they are exactly the same.

I scored the Wii U version and PS3/360 versions exactly the same actually. It's the same experience, except the Wii U version has the off-TV feature and Miiverse integration (screenshot support) which makes that version my personal choice between all the consoles. Regardless, it's an awesome game and those who don't have a Wii U should certainly give it a shot on the PS3/360.

I'm not saying you specifically but I remember the general opinion of the Wii U version being 5-7's or 3/5.

I'm seeing a lot more 8's and 9's now that its out for the 360/PS3. I just thought it was strange.

@lilbroRx Oh no I didn't mean you referred to our site's review score. Sorry for that miscommunication. I was just saying how I kept the score the same since it's the same game. But yeah, I also noticed some higher scores for the PS3/360 version compared to when the Wii U version released.

story of internet,

and its funny, the wiiu got the extra costumes a few days before the other versions was released,

What would have been "proof that the new Team Ninja has what it takes" is if this game wasn't a re-release of the Ninja Gaiden 3 that they originally made and were ultimately forced to go back and change after endless legitimate criticism.

Well if you have the two versions of this game like i have for the xbox 360 than i can assure you guys that the latest version Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge runs much more smoother,better framerates,no screen tearing,when compared with the original and first version of this game.Its another kind of experience not only in the gameplay but also technicaly,its better,and for that i thing Team ninja have my congrats!I just feel sorry and dont understand why they didnt release the first version of this game like intended.
