NZ Gamer - This is the first core Ninja Gaiden title without Tomonobu Itagaki's leadership. Sure, he didn't have a hand in the Sigma titles, but they were little more than ports of his games. This time around, Team Ninja has been free to take Ninja Gaiden 3 in a different direction and - for better or worse - they have.
Ninja Gaiden 3's story focuses on Ryu's struggles with his infected arm, which is trying to take over his body. Said arm forces him to perform evil deeds such as kill men as they plead for their lives. This action takes place in first person, and it may disturb some people. Lovely.
